Service was excellent professional and friendly. Wife loved her fish, my meal was not hot and my daughters scallops were to salty. Mussels were dry and small.

Everything was great, although I'm not a fan of the red sauce, I would prefer more flavor, but that is just my opinion. Overall a great experience, for our first time in.

The restaurant looks welcoming and refined, and offers a great waterfront view. The staff is professional and very amicable, eager to meet any needs. The food is fantastic, the delmonico and filet au poivre were cooked and seasoned to perfection, along with the sides. And the best apple tart I have ver had. Finally, for the level food and service, the price is unmatched.
Will definitely dine again

Love this restaurant, sorry to say with Michelle Wu’s mandate to show a vaccine card to have dinner here or anywhere else in Boston will probably keep me from returning even though I am vaccinated. Just refuse to show any kind of vaccine card to anyone.

Cocktails were great-try the spicy margarita-its excellent!
We skipped apps except for salads. Clam chowder was fantastic! I’m not one to have bacon in my chowder normally but this was delicious. Haddock dish was prepared nicely, perhaps just a touch more cooked than I would do, but very tasty. Risotto was cooked perfectly and they were able to make it without adding Parmesan cheese which was appreciated. Desserts were average-we had the tiramisu and the molten chocolate cake.
View was nice! We were there at night and the harbor looked lovely. Would definitely recommend it. Oh wait, the garlic breadsticks were not very garlicky, but worth the price of admission for sure.

New Year's Eve - VERY NOISY. Over the top. Had to scream to be heard and everyone was screaming. Server was just OK. Didn't inform me about substitution of vegetables for what I had thought was to be Gluten Free pasta in my order. Won't be going back any time soon.

Tried this restaurant out for the first time. It was amazing. I had the filet, cooked exceptionally, and the girls had swordfish and a seafood pesto dish (I believe, I was too focused on my filet). We started with an antipasto which was just right...and finished with a 2012 Fonseca port which was to die for. However, what always makes the meal is a good waitress. I am so upset I did not ask her her name but she was amazing, attentive, accommodating, just everything you could ask for so I hope when the owner reads this she is given due credit. As for the view, I have no words. I would highly recommend.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience there! The restaurant was able to accommodate to our request for a window seating on a busy Sat. night: the night view of Boston skyline was amazing. The meal also never disappoints: we ordered fried calamari, poached pear salad (the best we’ve ever had) and veal parm. All was unbelievable. We’ll definitely come back!
