Me and my girlfriend have been coming here for over a year now. So we decided to come here for our one year anniversary. From checking in with our reservation to leaving the restaurant was a great experience. The staff acknowledged our one year anniversary with two complimentary glasses of Prosecco. The food overall never disappoints.. You can not go wrong with the lobster roll and the oysters here… Overall, I was greatly pleased with our visit. As always.. thank you guys soo much.. 🙌🏽

Three had the fish tacos, one had the tuna entree. Very delicious. We started with blistered peppers(very nice) and the old bay fries(underwhelming). Service was very professional. Good wines by the glass also.

An especially friendly and welcoming team on our arrival last night with a few more people than planned. This is a neighborhood go-to for me. Good drinks, food, and friendly service.

Wait staff was amazing!!! Dylan took such great care of my party and I. Everyone was fantastic, but Dylan really stood out for his skill and hospitality. Service wasn’t slow and it wasn’t fast. By no means do they rush you. The food is delicious!! Plus complimentary chocolate mousse! This is my top favorite restaurant in all of Manhattan. I can’t say anything bad about this restaurant.

Service was attentive and friendly amd everything we ordered was excellent. I wish they offered the appetizers from their happy hour Menu on the regular menu as well but there were other things to order that were all good.

They always arrive cold, clean, with their liquor and completely free of their shell. The staff is wonderful! I do miss the flatbread and butter, as well as the formerly larger sized salmon tartare and chocolate pudding. I'm so glad we all survived the pandemic together :)
