This review does not rate the quality of the food because it is near excellent. Rather, the review is focused on the value and ambience. We went as a party of five ordering filet mignon (12oz), Chilean sea bass 2x and halibut entrees with two appetizers (crab cake and grilled octopus) and one dessert, and the total exceeded $350. Again, the food is tasty and we'll prepared but for the value it is definitely on the pricey side. And avoid the right side of the dining area (looks like the bar side) if you want to talk with and hear your guests. It's way essentially a noisy bar. In contrast, the left side of the dining area (nearest the entrance) has a much more calm and tranquil ambience.
Excellent fresh fish, excellent service and great ambiance. What more can one ask for when dining out — maybe the music turned down a little at lunch? Otherwise, everything was great.
Outstanding food and service
Had dinner with the family after going to the theater. This is one of our go to places for special events and a fun time. Food is consistently good with a menu providing choices unavailable in most restaurants.
Beautiful restaurant and food was well done. If you love sea food that have a lot of options for everyone.
Consistent food, great quality and fantastic service! Rueben is the best.
Great experience. Love this place!
I took my dad there. Food and service was excellent.
Very good experience. Excellent services. Good food. Wonderful evening..
Great food and great place for a date night or to celebrate a special occasion.
Outstanding food as always. The service is fantastic and the staff work incredibly hard to make the dining experience a great one!
Server was very kind and did well recommending the new oysters and the branzino ceviche with the Antidote #2 really was one of the best meals I have had in a while. Very wonderful evening
Our waitress, Ellke is the best. She introduced us to new items. All delicious.
Ordered sea bass; doubt it was sea bass. It was so over cooked I took one bite and did not eat the rest. The server picked up the plate ignoring the fact the food was hardly touched.
We were sorry we tipped 20%.
Of the 7 orders, 3 were wrong. Sauce on the side does not mean no sauce. By the time it showed up, the meal was over. The lobster roll was tasty, but very short on lobster. Impossible to spend more on a meal, they should get it right.
Has something for everyone without sacrificing anything! Great atmosphere and different areas to accommodate a variety of diners.
The food was perfect. The drinks perfect. Our waiter David perfect! Thank you!
Had a great time and enjoyed a wonderful meal and great service, thanks
We like the front sitting area and we’ve been a few times but the food is never as good as we hope it will be.
The food was delicious and came in a beautiful presentation. Our waitress was cheerful and knowledgeable about the food options.
our waitress Samone was great .Somone was the Best We will always ask for Samone as our waitress The free parking in the afternoon is super & all the help are very friendly.
The food was outstanding & the service was impeccable!
Always awesome. Joe served a wonderful meal!
My best friend enjoyed her birthday lunch so much! Thank you!!
My grandmother and I love coming here before shows at Segerstrom Center. The food is delicious and the service is usually pretty quick. The valet is quick and efficient when you’re coming back from the show.
Theatre with visiting family
Love dining there
Best Margarita ever
The food was good and the service was good except that we have had this reservation for three weeks and I requested a special table. When we got there they said that that special table is for five or more only, our table was for four. So we had to sit in the open. We needed to have private discussion which is why I requested that table or even another one of the many booths.
Shrimp and grits was good, but left me wishing I'd ordered the Chilean Sea Bass.
The food was great and the service was excellent!
For fresh seafood, this is a wonderful place to eat. Oyster selection is great and we had the best uni of any place we have eaten, hands down. Staff is so friendly and helpful, drinks are amazing and the food is so tasty! The restaurant itself is open and airy. A great place for a special occasion or a stop after a show at Segerstrom. I highly recommend it for the seafood lover.
Roy our server was great, atmosphere was phenomenal everyone was very friendly and the food was terrific.
The first waiter was rude. Kept saying cool. 2nd waiter was better but food was very delayed. Went for bday, notes on reservation but was missed by entire wait staff. Will not be back.
Drinks and appetizers were delicious. We had a great spot in the bar area. Moved to a table for dinner, portion was really tiny but it was ok since we got pretty full from appetizers.
The service was outstanding and the food excellent for dinner. Thus I came back with different people for brunch the next day. It would be nice if there was some tables that you could be seated at that would be in a quiet enough area to have a quiet conversation.
Adriana is awesome
Kitchen was extremely slow. It took over 2 hours to eat dinner. We waited an hour for our appetizers. Restaurant was also very expensive. Cocktails mostly big ice cubes. Wish we had gone to Mastros.
The food came out so slow, the drinks came out slow and it was a t lunch and it wasn't even 25 % full.
Extremely delicious! Loved every bite! Perfect place for a special occasion. Definitely going back.
