Outstanding seafood in casual surroundings. The grilled octopus and the cod are both terrific. Order a little basket of pesto fries. Deelish! Reasonable prices. Ask your waiter about wines from outside Long Island - they are available.

Loved this place. Can't believe it exists in one of the coolest neighbourhoods in NYC because the prices are really reasonable. Loved the fish tacos, they were superb, as was everything else. The service was great and the ambience was really fun. I hope this restaurant stays around for a long time.

My boyfriend & I had a truly amazing dining experience here. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the atmosphere was romantic, and the food was to die for. I had a surf and turf burger and my life will never be the same again. It had delicious lobster on top of an angus burger. We will be coming back ASAP

The food, service, and ambiance were all excellent for me and the people dining with me. While on one hand, that would be very nice, on the other hand it caused concern for us when a neighboring table of customers with dark skin pigmentation seemed to be totally ignored. The night was busy, but, when comparing the service provided to me (a white guy) and the two other white people with me, with that of the people at the table next to us, there is really no comparison. While the restaurant's food was amazing, I am still (days later) disturbed by the fact that I never needed to raise my white hand once to get a server's attention, but a woman at the table next to me had her black hand waving in the air for a long time, and she was still ignored. After too much waiting, they left the restaurant, without being served as much as a glass of water in all the time they sat. For that reason, while I cannot fault them for serving me poorly, I can and do fault them for what appeared to be discrimination based on skin color. I would love to give them a 5-star review, because the food was amazing, but an environment where there is discrimination cannot be described as being anything other than "poor."

With the dining experience. Although it's a very noisy bar atmosphere, we were able to be seated in a little quieter area. Happy Hour oysters were excellent($1.00 ea.) and the entrees were as well. We would all definitely return.

OK: the negative: the oysters (raw) weren't very good. Maybe it's the wrong month or something (or maybe if they can't serve good enough oysters they should withdraw them from the menu). Everything else was excellent--really fresh lobster, nice dessert, good local drinks. It's a bit noisy but manageable. The ambiance is nothing special, but the vibes are very good. We enjoyed dinner there a lot...

Great place for happy hour and dinner after work. The happy hour menu is great especially the $5 Wollfer estate wines. I love the steamed clams, rib eye and of course the pesto fries!! Also highly recommend the fish and chips. The fish melts in your mouth. The soft shell crab sandwich was too heavy and over fried.

I ordered off of the Saturday brunch menu and thought that the lobster benedict was disappointing...there was hardly any Béarnaise sauce and I certainly could not taste any tarragon. The English muffins didn't seem to be toasted and were soggy beyond belief. The salad greens were somewhat wilted and were served with a few drops of vinegar. The glasses of sauvignon blanc and prosecco did not taste very good, which was surprising since the effort is made to pick special long island wines. The service was very good and friendly which made up for the food. The atmosphere and neighborhood is very pleasant. Maybe just a new chef is needed!

Met my adult daughter for a quick bite before she crossed the river to meet with her friend there. Location suited us perfectly. We enjoyed the All Long Island wine list, particularly the Wofford Rose. The Scotch wasn't bad either! ;-)

Very reasonable prices for Manhattan!

My wife and I will be back!
