I had the Mexican stuffed Shrimp with bacon for an appetizer. So yummy! My friend had the Ahi Poke also very yummy. They serve herbed bread with roasted garlic, delicious . We both had the local salmon with Anna potatoes which was fabulous. Their corkage...fee is 25 or free if you purchase a bottle there. Beautiful atmosphere. They have both in and outside dining. A very enjoyable evening!More

The name of the restaurant tells the story and the sauces for various shellfish that are offered are amazing. We just about drank them down. If you are in town don’t miss it!

The food and service was great .Just a little secret there no extra cost to spit a plate and believe or not no cooking price to bring your own wine . With this little secret the meal was not so expensive.

So over rated! Server was awesome but the food was so over priced for what you get. Just go get a cocktail and enjoy the place with a drink and maybe an appetizer.

Casual but highly professional staff and service. Freshest fish in San Luis, much local from boats in Avila and Morro Bay

We had the tuna Poke as a starter. It was pretty good however it was pretty small portion. My son had a wagu steak. It was not very flavorful but it was well cooked and tender. My wife had Scallops and they were not sweet...and tender as we are use to when we buy and cook our own. I had the Ciopino. I liked it. It had great flavor and was perfect since it was a cool evening. The fish was fresh. I think the ambiance was nice.More

I can’t say I fully explored different options on their menu because when we arrived they said rice pilaf, potatoes, king crab legs, and grilled items were off the menu. That wasn’t what I expected but I did love the wine!! The ambiance was elegant,...menu options were very nice, portions were reasonable for what you pay, and service was great.More

Prices are high and the quality of the food has considerably dropped since the last time we were here. My husband had the ciopino, which at $45 was expected to be outstanding. Unfortunately, while the quantity was amazing, the quality was sorely lacking. I had...grilled fish which was served with ordinary rice pilaf. Nothing special. I don't know if they have a new chef, but one thing for sure is that we will not return. There are more imaginative restaurants around San Luis Obispo at a much better price.More

We had a girls weekend and we were not disappointed with the restaurant. We enjoyed the speciality cocktails, and our server was very patient with our indecisiveness. We ended up with the two specials, salmon and scallops. Both were delicious and we would definitely go...back!More
