Best food we have had all weekend. Grilled Asparagus was a salad which was amazing. Candied nuts and bacon were involved so how can you go wrong? Alaskan king crab legs and lobster roll (not sushi) was freaking amazing. Hard to find the location though but I guess that makes is a hidden gem. Definitely will come back. Delicious and portions arent huge, they are just right.

We had the tier 1 raw plate, lobster benedict, caviar, and a couple of their specialty drinks. Everything was fantastic including the service. We can't wait to go back.

Great place for seafood in Hollywood. Tucked away inside a little shopping center near a Walgreens this place is unsuspecting but delicious. They have a wide variety of oysters and mussels and have funky seafood entrees. Want to come back and check out their happy hour when oysters are cheaper! Its a small place and can get crowded on weekends.

I really wanted to like this place a lot. I love seafood and it's highly reviewed by J. Gold, and I've been trying to eat my way down his recommendations. But I thought the service was kind of... brusque for the price and style of restaurant, and the atmosphere of being sandwiched between Jersey Mike's and Walgreens's kind of bothered me. I wish the location were slightly less like eating in a mall food court. The food was pretty good, but I think you can get better and less expensive seafood at La Cevicheria or other places in LA.

Came on a date here, this place was definitely not noticeable, hidden in an alley. It was a great night to sit on the patio w/lights hanging. Ordered the fromage platter, enjoyed it. Was disappointed that the crostini, toast point were beyond charred. Crispy or even toasty was the intent, not black and burnt. So cheese and honey had to due w/out the crostini. Ordered chorizo and clams.... Great combo, there were garbanzo beans as well w/thick giant slices of toast which were very burnt on the sides. Maybe less amount of time in the toaster. Many of my clams had sand in it, maybe for future they can clean out the water that holds the clams. I love chorizo, but there was so much oil/grease from it which was perfect because my thick toasted bread soaked the majority of it up.

The bleu cheese avocado bacon burger was awesome, our waiter was super awesome, but the red headed bartender was really not a nice person! My advice: If you don't like your job you can quit, but don't sigh and act put upon when people ask you for the things you are supposed to provide! She is the reason that this restaurant is missing two stars in my review.

We were there yesterday for a romantic dinner with my wife. August 1 2014. As far as being a romantic restaurant it's not. It reminded me of the time we were in Rome there were a lot of tourists young crowd there and the food was tailored and priced for that kind of crowd. Pricey and not well developed taste. We were sitting outside watching people go inside Walgreens and Jersey Mike. The waiter was serving us like we were never going to come back. The menu was confusing they had over 5 appetizers listed under the dinner menu. We had a little difficulty with that. We picked our dinner dishes and when the waiter came he told us "do you know those are appetizers?" like somehow we were supposed to know. I've had oysters in a lot of places and a lot of high end places also but I've never had really salty oysters. They try to be fancy. The blue crab sandwich we ordered was not dinner size more like a slider size. And It was also really salty. Taste wise it was ok. And we also ordered muscles which had rice underneath it covered with some liquid sauce that was ok also. Would I come back here again I don't think so. If I had to use one word to describe this place I would say this place is pretentious. It's trying to be something that its not. It's located in between mall and apartments it's not romantic its not a fancy restaurant it doesn't have high quality service but their prices are expensive. It's more like a fancy expensive Bistro. I picked this place because it was rated by Zagat. What I don't understand was that how did they rate this place to be one of the best restaurants in Hollywood.
