Everything was delicious and the service was awesome! We sat at the oyster bar and enjoyed watching them shuck orders. The One Cool Cucumber martini was so good!

Great ambiance, server was very nice but conflicting information if sushi was returning to the menu or not (which was why we went in the first place), the calamari is excellent (small portions) my fish special was great (entrees are plenty large portions) but my friend felt her food was rather bland. Overall, the rating is due: we went for sushi and it wasn’t there and the food was good but not worth the price for what we received.

The Restaurant said their staff would be practicing safe serving with masks, etc. No one had a mask on. They said they were using touch less menus, they handed us menus.

Great service. There were six of us. Everyone’s dish was interesting to the eye and everybody seemed to love what they got. We had no leftovers.

Only complaint is that we asked for an outdoor table, and even though we got there on time, we had to settle for indoors and had to forgo the enjoyment of eating outside.

The food is really very good. However, the restaurant is like a kennel. For some reason, the restaurant encourages people with dogs to bring them to the restaurant. When we were there just a few days ago, one woman brought two dogs in a stroller. The dogs never stopped barking, disturbing many of the customers. Unfortunately, no one who worked at the restaurant, including the manager, was willing to do anything, despite the fact that many customers were very upset and their meals were ruined by the barking. We have been there many times, and it seems that every time we are there, the place is filled with dogs. It’s one thing to allow seeing eye dogs and other service dogs, who are trained to be quiet and not disturb others; It is something very different to allow or encourage customers to bring dogs that incessantly bark and disturb the customers.

Two different fish dishes, two delicious outcomes! Our server Tess truly made the evening extra special with her attentive ways and demeanor. The hostesses also lovely, kudos to the manager for training such good staff! Good wine selection too. Our only chagrin, the lousy bread that came with the clam appetizer! It ruined the experience of sipping up the left over juices at the end. Shame... are there no good bakeries nearby? Hardened old crush less bread with no flavor... Oy

Read some bad reviews on this place, but saw many more good ones and also recommended by friends. Trust the bad reviews!Waiter (Cory V per receipt; never introduced himself) seemed helpful at first, but wasn’t really all the at helpful nor truthful regarding food allergies for one person in the group. When food came and was told of a problem, was indifferent and moved on and never came back until time to check whether we were done or wanted dessert. Pretty certain he just wanted to turn the table. Food is fine, but can do just as well for less money and better service. No plan to ever return. Thankfully, mom was happy enough and didn’t ruin her 86th birthday (btw...why mention special occasion on OpenTable when nothing acknowledged?)

OMG, what great food. Fresh oysters from both coasts. Probably the best Lobster roll we have ever had with a buttery toasted split top roll. Crab-crusted Ribeye was extremely flavorful, as was the Fillet with herb butter. Crazy busy and load, but worth every calorie!!

We were a party of 4pp. We asked to sit outside and they accommodated our request right away. The first wine we chose was out of stock, so we selected a 2nd choice and everyone enjoyed it.
The apps were amazing and equally good were the entrees. We ordered a couple of the specials and would suggest any of them, because the fresh catch was outrageously delicious and the lobster dragon roll was very creative, beautiful to look at and superbly prepared.
We ended the meal sharing a slice of decedent key lime pie, probably the best I’ve ever had.
We all said in one breath....“ I will definitely be back!”

Excellent meal. One out of town guest said best scallops they ever had and second guest said best blackened grouper they ever had. Friendly waiter. Only complaint was checking in with hostess. She was obviously overwhelmed by the crowd and needed help. Stood in line for over 15 minutes just to check in and tell her we were there for our 7:00 reservation (now 7:15).

I'm sorry to hurt anyone's feelings here, but this was some of the worst seafood I have ever eaten. I have had better seafood at Red Lobster. I even talked to the manager about the dishes we had to maybe give some suggestions And he didn't seem to care what we thought. I guess after you have been in business for a while our opinion doesn't matter. Stay away from the scallops, fried shrimp and crab cakes.

Lovely dinner in the lovely city of Delray Beach. We were greeted warmly at reception and seated promptly. Our server, Dylan was excellent. Attentive and helpful without being pushy. He knew the menu well and described several specials. I was so overwhelmed with the many selections, that I ended
