Appetizers were good, but no better than the average restaurants at the much higher prices. The main meal on the other hand was excellent and you pay for it. the service was very good. expensive, figure on $100/person.

Great selection of fresh fish and oysters. Specialty cocktails and wine list are nice. Service is top notch. Great place for friends, date night or business meetings. Reasonably priced for the quality. Will be returning.
