            We went for mother's day lunch. Calamari: light and tender. Lobster roll: fresh and delicious. Gumbo: just okay. The only thing we didn't like were the chips that came with the lobster roll. Service was fast and friendly.

            Our waitress was amazing… I just with names but she had red curly hair and was very attentive and had great energy. It was the perfect setting for a fabulous Mother’s day Brunch. Will most definitely be spreading the word about this newly found gem.

            I think you will have very good seafood. That said, the scallops were so small and unbelievably expensive. I thought that was very chinchy

            Hands down best seafood in Dallas. If you don’t get the smoked salmon board as an appetizer you will be missing out! The creole blacked trout was delicious and would absolutely recommend.

            Our server was a bit annoying. First, we wanted to split a salad and age brought two butter plates! We asked for salad bowls, which she did accommodate. She told us it was going to be an extra charge for splitting, which should be indicated on the menu. We did decide to pay the split charge. Just another cheesy way to make money I my opinion! Food was good, though. Ordered the kingfish. Very delicate and tasty.

            1st visit & loved it! I called yesterday to ask about the Lobster Rolls, spoke with Bree and it was her description of the cafe as "quaint" that caused us to choose this location. Madison took very good care of us from the moment we arrived. Bree supported Madison. Both are personable & terrific. We went for the Lobster Rolls & were impressed: good value & quite rich. It was nice to have a real New England Lobster Roll and not go to New England to get one. The Molten Chocolate Lava cake was divine and best we've ever had. Our only issue was with the full entree ceasar salad that was small for the price. We bought Halibut from the market to cook at home and it was excellent. It's the freshest fish we've found in DFW. We're impressed & will be back.

            Server talked up the calamari. It was okay at best. Small and overcooked. Caesar salad was below par. Dry and nothing special that I haven’t seen in 1000 places. Entrees, however, were good and met expectations. But overall okay meal with no alcohol, the $130 price tag did not match the delivery.

            This was our first time. We had a dozen oysters (so good), Chilean Sea Bass enchiladas (yes, please!), grilled jumbo scallops with citrus glaze, zucchini, and broccolini (droooool!), sweet corn and poblano hush puppies (literally could eat these as a meal allll day), and molten chocolate cake (divine). The meal was spectacular, the ambiance was clean and crisp, and the service was on point. We can’t wait to go back on a Sunday after 6 PM for $2 oysters. This place is gooooooood, Y’all!

            We shared the mussels starter which couldn't have been more flavorful. The crab cake freshness put it above others. Excellent slaw. My girlfriend was blown away by the shrimp po'boy. We've been here before with the same experience but somehow you guys got off our radar which is odd since we live down the road. The server was the icing on the cake and answered every question we throw at her.

            It was an average restaurant for the price.

            The online menu was much more impressive than the real menu at the restaurant. The food was hot, that is the best thing about it. The salmon was heavily over salted. Both the sea bass and the salmon had been treated somehow, maybe brined maybe soaked in something that made them very soft and fall apart with none of the body you expect from a fresh fish. The chowder was mostly vegetables. The herb fries were made up of mostly short broken pieces of potato. The calamari was basically breading and very little squid. The price was substantial for less than quality food. We were sat by an exterior door that was marked not to use but people used it and disturbed us regardless. A one way panic bar on the door would solve that problem while still leaving emergency egress in place. The restaurant is a small local establishment. It has great potential but needs substantial improvement in the kitchen. The service was reasonable except being shown a tablet screen at the end to pay from with no receipt or ability to review a complete bill prior to payment being requested, I don't frankly know if I paid my bill or someone else's. I can't imagine that we will go back.
