    The bartender was attentive and friendly. Our food server was OK although he brought us the wrong check. It was 300.00 more then ours. As for the food the roasted oysters were very good but my mussels had no taste at all. I must admit I was very disappointed.

    To start, the people here are super attentive and personable, they truly made me feel like I was talking with a good friend. I ordered a dirty martini and it was made to perfection. You can’t go and not order the oysters, they have a nice variety of east/west types and they shuck each one to order so you’re guaranteed to get the freshest experience. But nothing prepared me for how good the trout entree would be.. it was the best fish I’ve ever had. The delicate trout was perfectly balanced with a lightly dress frisee salad on top of roasted potatoes, cioppolini onions, and the most luxurious Beurre blanc made with Trout roe. I savored every bite and can’t express enough how delicious this dinner was!

    I didn’t give 5 stars due to the warm temp in the dining room (it was 96F outside the day we went). GT did call us to inform us the AC wasn’t working properly.

    Loud and dark. Waiter was great but fish tacos were ordinary. Guest said her Connecticut lobster was great. But atmosphere was more after-work dinner than the leisurely meal we planned.

    My wife and I visited this place while on vacation and it was our favorite meal of the trip! The food was great, the staff friendly and the atmosphere was perfect. We were pleasantly surprised at how fast the food came to our table for what we ordered too. Definitely will be back next time we're in Chicago.

    Wow. Just wow!!! ...so much to say. The clam chowder was delish with whole clams and other distinguishable chunks of palette savory greatness. It really could have been its own meal. SEVERAL raw oyster selections were available; the less brine they are, the better for me --- and they delivered. The complementary sauces were so good, I got two for the road! THIS is my first time having 1/2 lb king crab legs and didn't have to work to get to the meat. Oh, so, fabulous and the right temperature, texture, and over the top rich taste! And in addition to recommending the best food options just for me, Chris, just kept my glass full of splendid, complex, refreshing surpises. This was the bomb experience!

    Loved the octopus and poke. Found the halibut and fish tacos very plain. Beautifully prepared but not a lot of taste. Drinks were delish, service impeccable, ambience and noise level (a BIG deal for me) was perfect. Would definitely go back again.

    Frankie and Grace provided attentive but not pushy service, perfectly timing delivery of our incredibly delicious meals (and beautifully splitting a salad for two of us). Everything was perfect! With ONE exception: the noise level. Just plain too loud. We’d go back for the food and service but will probably stay away because of the noise.
