Everything we ordered was fresh and delicious. The octopus app is a must!
Plate wasn’t properly explained, my wife sent it back . The replacement was fried fish
Best oyster bar ever, great verarity of oyster from West and East coast
The food is better than 90% of all the restaurants on this strip in ft lauderdale. Being known as as oyster bar does a disservice to a hidden 4 star menu and kitchen.
Excellent service and willing to be flexible with food restrictions
Dined at WSOBG based on TripAdvisor rating and reviews with another couple . . . . we were not disappointed. Romaine wedge and panzanella salad both very good, bread and oysters on the half shell were excellent but what really stole the show were the monk fish loins (which 3 of us had) with the smoked gouda grits and the grouper.
Hostess wasn’t at the host station but was busy chatting some waiters. Finally saw us after a few mins and came over. First tried to seat us at a high top in the bar and I explained we’d like to have a dining table. Then tried to put us at a bar table. Had to explain that when we book on Opentable we expect to eat in a restaurant and not a bar so finally got a dressed table in the restaurant. Hostess pointed out there was no request with the reservation. Did I need to specify I didn’t want to eat in the bar?
Next we got dirty menus, then ice water instead of the sparkling which we asked for..
Oysters were great, grilled octopus great, lobster bisque great. Halibut entree great except for the 3 gritty mussels that come with it. Seared tuna, awful soapy flavour, probably not so fresh, with undercooked brocollini and overly salted mushrooms.
The manager graciously offered dessert to make up for the disappointing entree. We were handed a dessert menu and the waiter explained the options. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find them on the dessert menu as we were handed an old, out dated one. We feel sorry for our waiter as she was quite embarrassed, despite having given exceptional service.
I hope they get their act together here as it uses to be a go to favourite.
The only really impressive element about this resturant was their decor and atmosphere. For being a fine dining resturant there are certain standards that need to be met, which unfortunately didn’t come close. The waiter kept trying to upsell us on everything, which isn’t proper. For example our table felt pressured to order the $98 bottle of wine instead of $70. When I was going to order salmon for an entree the waiter recommended me all the other fish options because there was a $15 - $25 price difference.
bottom line the quality of food was TERRIBLE.
Appetizer we had Mussels, which was full of sand, the chef forgot to wash them. Steak tartar was well seasoned but nothing to ride home about.
Entrees my guest ordered the sushi grade Tuna which was cold. Tuna presentation was also not good; the chef Cut whole tuna in half ( way too big of a peace and threw on the plate.) The mushrooms on the plate were also too spicy.
The salmon that I ordered was also not warm and plain.
Overall food quality did not exceed expensive prices.
Food and service was good but not great. Grilled octopus was overcooked and had a burnt taste . Steak tartare was very good. Wines where very expensive marked up about 300 % from store price.
