We received a recommendation from a friend to try this place and it did not disappoint. Our server, Jen, was excellent. The vibe was very fun yet relaxed and the decibel level was not overwhelming at all the way some dining rooms get. The biscuits melted in our mouths - highly recommended as appetizers! I had the beef ribs as... More

We had the freshest, largest and most delicious oysters at their oyster bar! The smoked salmon was equally perfect! I cannot remember having a better meal! We only had the appetizers. We will return for dinner next time!

Servers were attentive and prompt, even with the tail end of lunch still in high gear. My ahi tuna burger, with shoe string fries was... More

Came for dinner at this restaurant. It was packed on a wed night. A reservation is definitely recommended. The food is especially tasty. My recommendations would be: sea bass(today's special), oyster raw and the shrimp cocktail.

Met some friends for lunch at the Gulfstream. The meal was fabulous and the service suburb. I would highly recommend the crab cake salad. The crab cake was ALL CRAB with no fillers. Very tasty and the perfect lunch.

We had stopped here previously during a visit to the area for a beer on the outside patio. It was very nice so we decided to go back on this visit to Corona Del Mar. Again the intention was just for a cocktail or two but the vibe, the service, the delicious smells lead us to staying for dinner as... More
