Tips from the Net @ The Seafood Bar

Very good fresh seafood including a large raw bar. Usually very crowded. Expensive GooglePlace - June 2017

Casual, comfortable and delicious. This place does fresh seafood, simply prepared and with great service. All the staff were excellent, and my food (umami no.3 oysters, and grilled baby sole) were excellent. It gets busy here, so you might have a wait to get a seat, and hot dishes can take a while to come out, but I would recommend this place without hesitation. I just wish this was my neighborhood restaurant! GooglePlace - June 2017

I think they forgot us! And the main course was mediocre. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived and we ordered an appetizer right away. A little while later, we ordered a main course. The appetizer, salmon cakes, took a looooong time to arrive; maybe 30-45 minutes. It was good, had a small salad and a dill sauce that was very tasty. Then we waited. It was well over an hour before our main course arrived. Eventually the manager figured out something was wrong and came over to apologize. I see now that I ordered poorly: fish and chips. It tasted like the oil was burnt and the fish was, in my opinion, overcooked. If I eventually forget the negative parts, I might go back and try something else, and skip the wine and appetizer. They served these large assortments of shell fish that others around us ordered, and received in normal waiting times, and they looked good. The fact that others got food more quickly makes me think that our order fell through the cracks. That is not excusable in a high volume restaurant like this. They gave us a free glass of wine, for me, and a dessert for my wife, but hardly worth it given how long we sat there. GooglePlace - June 2017

If you're near the Van Gough museum, this is the place to go. Very yummy. We had a hot and cold platter. The pan fried fish in the hot platter was tasty. You won't be hungry after. The sauces are delicious and the seafood was very fresh. GooglePlace - June 2017

Very nice place with tasty seafood. We ordered a mix plate and enjoyed it a lot. Do not miss dish of the smoked eel as it was the best one we tasted so far. GooglePlace - June 2017
