    This place is a downtown L A institution. I've come here regularly for the past 30+ years & it remains by far my primary go-to-place for the freshest, most perfectly-cooked fish & seafood in the city!

    One entree was better than the next. Oyster sampler gave everyone choice of what they liked for the next round. Specifically the Dover Sole was amongst the best I've ever had and I've eaten Dover Sole around the world including Dover.

    Chris gave us excellent service. The scallops were to die for. The steak prepared perfectly. Free corkage so we enjoyed our wine too

    Restaurant fairly crowded at the 6:00 hour on a Sat night. We were seated immediately as we waited for our other party to join us. I had requested a booth so our dinner would be a bit more intimate. But as our other guests arrived I realized at 6’5” my friend would have a problem sitting in a booth. So my request to move to a table was well received and arrangements made immediately. The service was impeccable, our waiter explained the menu expertly, and we enjoyed a few cocktails before we ordered dinner. Our dinners were fabulous, prepared perfectly, I had requested my Halibut be blackened, and it was terrific. All in all, our dinner went quite well, and a great experience was had by all.

    Service was phenomenal with Chris. He was attentive, considerate, and funny. Celebrated my boyfriend's birthday and everything was delicious. The clams with chorizo were fantastic.

    An absolute favorite place - both locations (DTLA & Santa Monica). The seafood is always fresh and deliciously prepared. The staff goes above and beyond. And the cocktails are perfectly crafted. And OMG the bread!!!!
