From a long time I was planning to visit a fine dining seafood restaurant. We went over the menu of 3-4 near by restaurants and selected this one. We ordered chefs special (bass) and Crab melt sandwich. Bass was good the presentation was simple and sweet. By just looking a the dish you'll feel that the taste will be bland but once I tried it was perfect, also the broccolis was awesome(recommend item). Crab melt sandwich was below expectation, bread had a lot of extra butter/oil and the quantity of crab inside was too less, so paying $22 for such quantity was a lot. At the start they also give you breads and butter, the bread slice edge's was was too hard and difficult to eat. Probably I may not come back here, will try the neighbouring seafood restaurants.

Some friends from out of town and I went here on president's day weekend. My boyfriend and I decided to split the surf and turf dinner. I took the crab and he took the steak. His steak was all right, but my crab was AWFUL. It was a very small portion, cold, flavorless, and covered in marina...which got everywhere as the crab meat was STILL IN THE SHELL and needed to be cracked. A friend of mine with celiac's disease asked it they could substitute an unbreaded fish filet for the beer battered one that came with the fish tacos. The waitress replied that they could not...even though they are a primarily seafood restaurant, apparently they did not have any unbreaded seafood that would fit the bill. She settled for some (again, flavorless) shrimp tacos. They also add have a $15 minimum per person and 5% included fee for some bizarre reason. We all left still hungry after our meals and went to In-N-Out across the street. It was probably the most expensive bad meal I've ever had. Will never go there again and I would not recommend it.

One star is being nice. HORRIBLE SERVICE!!!! The hostess had to take our drink and food order, never saw a waiter or waitress come to our table. Kitchen staff brought out food, still never saw waitstaff. Hostess again had to get our bill, still no waitstaff. Not once did a waiter or waitress come to our table during our visit. Food was poor, no refills on drinks, just a miserable experience. NEVER AGAIN!!!! Would NOT recommend to anyone!!!!! GooglePlace - October 2017
