After waiting 45 minutes the waiter brings out our main course. Only problem is we ordered starters. Instead of bringing the food back he offered us free deserts to solve his problem. Manager never came by to ask or find out what was gong on. Service was very bad. Restaurant was quiet for a Saturday so we should have known. Very disappointing

The ambience was exceptional. The wine list was very extensive with a number of choices. We truly enjoyed the grilled octopus and seared brussels sprout. The service was above average. I would definitely go back to this restaurant.

Having looked forward to the reservation made almost 2 months prior, it is unfortunate that the restaurant allows cellphone use, particularly on speaker, in the dining room.

People should be encouraged to go out in the hall or outside if they must talk on their cells during their meals.
So inconsiderate for this person to disturb the otherwise lovely ambiance. And the management, although asked, did really nothing to curtail the disturbance.

The Jazz player on the other hand was wonderful-- not too loud-- and the musician was quite accomplished. And Natasha our waitress was great.

Our server, Tami of Japanese decent, was excellent! Everything we orderedeas prepared and present beautifully. From the selection of oysters (east coast and west coast), to the top neck clams and grilled octopus, the food was fresh and the appetizers tasted great! We tried the monk fish, grouper and the branzino and the combination of flavors melted in your mouth. Chef Toby and his culinary team are a must visit when you are in the Fort Lauderdale area.

I live in this area and can’t believe I didn’t know about this hidden gem. We found this place because we were craving oysters. Greeted by Salomon with a welcoming smile. The seafood was fresh and delicious. The raw bar tasting appetizer was plentiful and tasty. We enjoyed an extra half dozen of the east coast oysters. We ended up sharing an Ahi Tuni loin with broccolini and shiitake mushrooms which were to die for. And can’t forget to mention the flavorful side dish of sweet corn and bacon. Adestin was an awesome server and was on point with his recommendations. Were very happy we came here and will definitely come back.

First off our server was excellent. No issues whatsoever with him or his attentive nature; always on the ball. The food was good, but far from great. We had 5 for dinner and everyone had something different so we were able to get a fair idea of their offerings. Oyster appetizer was good, all tasted very fresh. The "hot stone" tuna was odd and a bit messy, and the fish dip was also good. For entrees we had a fried snapper, scallops, halibut, a salad, and trout. Again all good but none great. Did I expect more from a seafood spot so close to the ocean> Yes. Would I go back? No. Was it bad, No. Just not as good as it should of been.

Fish was fishy. Rice was crispy. Lobster was raw. Risotto was mushy. Bread was good. Watermelon salad was not edible. Server was great. Manager was nice. Violin player was great- but a bit loud. Decor was pretty. Wine selection was the best thing they had to offer. It was overall not a pleasant experience.

The food and service is always exceptional. And the prices are always higher than you wish they were. But it's worth it, especially now when they have a great musician providing background music.

Food was excellent. Service was a little slow at times, but did not ruin a great night. Wife loved the dozen raw oysters (2-of-Each from East & West) - She loved the West Coast oysters the most. Baked oysters were excellent, crab cake was good and basic lobster entree was also good. I ordered the butter poached lobster on truffle risotto - One of my favorite lobster dishes yet! Will definitely try again as we have dined in this restaurant many times before. Great night altogether!

We went for happy hour. The service was so SLOW. The oysters were delicious, which is why we went there. We wanted to order more, but no one came by to take our order or ask us if we wanted anything else. We were very disappointed with the service, and felt they were avoiding serving our table because we were just there for happy hour drinks and oysters. If they are offended by us only ordering from the happy hour menu, then they shouldn’t offer happy hour. Despite their delicious oysters, we won’t be back.

Empty restaurant at 7pm was a bad omen. Service bad, empty water glasses, dirty plates not picked up, waited for too long for the check. Food (pecan crusted grouper and lobster risotto) grouper was cooked ok but very bland and ate dry, sides were similar to grocery store frozen section items reheated, lobster also cooked well but risotto was watery and very heavy handed with the truffle oil making the dish one note. Spent over $100 for two entrees and waters. I don’t mind paying for a good meal, but this was not.

Very good food. Seafood and oysters are exceptional. Service was a little clumsy but I think our server was new to this type of somewhat higher end restaurant.
Outside seating is nice but adjoining place has loud music and outside smokers aplenty. Inside is quite serene.

Father’s Day dinner. Appetizers were delicious. Surf and turf was great. My seafood dish could have been cooked a little longer as I found it too undercooked for my taste. The restaurant is beautiful but the air con is icy...just be prepared with a wrap or jacket.
Our servers were amazing and very attentive. Overall,it was good.
