    Good service and the food is delicious. Most fishes we ordered were thick cuts, and they might have needed some more salt.

    I have eaten at your restaurant many times and have always enjoyed the food and ambiance. The service was excellent, but I thought the shrimp louie was nothing special. Not a stand-out dish.

    Very good service. Most of the food was really good. I was not terribly impressed with the Shrimp Louie But the grilled octopus was terrific. I know it’s part of a bigger Bellevue downtown establishment, but they should either turn off the music or make it a little less sports bar sounding. I’ve been to their other restaurants in LA, much nicer.

    What a perfect evening! We had a 10/10 dining experience. The atmosphere, the workers, and the food were all spectacular. Too many times now when you go out for a nice meal the service or the food are disappointing. KC was our server and he was awesome He had great recommendations and was very friendly. The food was delicious and the oysters were wonderfully fresh. I would 100% recommend this place and we will definitely be back! Thank you for a wonderful evening!

    The waitress turned us down by letting us sit and did not come to get us to order food at all. We sat more than 30 minutes then decided to leave. They do not need customers and staffs did not even talk to us when we decided to leave. Stay away from this expensive restaurant unless you would like to waste money for terrible service.

    Great place to celebrate occasions. We got a reservation for 07:45pm but was able to get seated a bit earlier. The food was good, no complaints at all but that my cioppino had one crab leg and my husband's dish seemed to be a bit overpriced for what it is. Pasta and shrimp should not cost about $40. Service was good and our server consistently checked on us the appropriate amount of times, which I appreciated.

    My friends and I came to celebrate a birthday and we really enjoyed our experience here. It was all of our first times, and we only mentioned it was the birthday girl’s birthday in conversation, and they still made note of it and went out of their way to make her feel special at the end of our meal. The food was delicious, our server did a really great job at making recommendations. We trusted her and were not disappointed. I intentionally ordered smaller plates because I didn’t want to fill up and ended up getting full quite quickly anyway. My favorite item was the crabcake on the appetizer menu, and they offered a delicious pink seabream ceviche that was very subtle in fish flavor, but exploding with flavor with the toppings they dressed it with. We will definitely be coming back.

    My husband and I took my niece for her birthday dinner. When we walked in they welcomed us and we waited for less than 5 minutes then we were settled. Our waitress was very rude and inpatient. We waited for her for more than 30 minutes just to get water. She was very disrespectful to us. We were ordering our food and she just walked away from us while we were still ordering our food and went to the other table to help the other people. We asked for a new waitress to help us. I wished we got up and left because we were not treated right. I will never show my face to this restaurant or recommend anyone to it. Oh yeah the food was horrible as well.

    I was hoping for stellar fish, but had medium overly priced fare. I would have expected a waiter to be more in tune with a $200 meal but he was more interested in being a “matter-of-fact” fishmonger. Lots more fish places without the drama.

    Food and service were fabulous. We took some out of town guests to lunch. I ordered the Dover Sole fish which was one of the specials. It was very good, but I literally had one piece of thin fish on my plate. No vegestable, starch or even a parsley garnish! For $54, you can throw in a piece of broccoli or something. Just sayin!

    The food was great- sea bass was so moist and flaky- excellent. Spiny lobster was tender with very good taste. Prices are high, but most was worth it. One of the drinks was full to the top with ice, so not as much drink in it... Great for a special occasion and great seafood.

    Given the prices they charge, we expected better service. Appetizers were delivered during the salad. Then they tried to bring the main course before we were done with our appetizers. We ran out of room on the table. Seemed like service was out of sync. Food was good. Must say I was surprised and impressed they charged no corkage fee even though they have a decent wine list. We brought 4 bottles of our own and bought another one from their wine list. We will continue to patronize this restaurant.

    The head of wait staff Chris and the manager are standard bearers for what customer service should look like! They diffused a situation with one of their (rude) wait staff and ourselves when we showed up 20 mins late. The manager and the head waiter made sure we had a lovely time. The food was good, but the service was top notch we will be back again.

    Service was excellent, very nice 4 course Valentine's Day menu. Seafood was fresh and delicious, whole lobster, surf and turn, and Chilean sea bass recommended. Great fresh oyster apps too. For desert the espresso ganache cake would also be highly recommended. Oh, and don't miss the bacon clam chowder. Yummy.
