Top-notch, quality seafood in a modern setting. Their crudo is amazing. It was just perfect. My friend and I were just staring at each other nodding in appreciation. We had a bottle of the Italian white wine that was crisp and dry and perfect with the seafood. We ordered a few oysters that were superb, filled up on the complimentary bread (soft inside, maybe too hard on the outside) and butter (perfect), and then moved on to a dish called San Sebastian. This multi-staged dish offered a balance of olives, peppers, tuna, cheese, and bread. Eat each ingredient, putting one in your mouth just as your are finishing the previous, and you'll be off on an adventure. We finished with the chowder, which was delicious. The only critique of the chowder that I have is that one of the fish ingredients was a little boring and there was too much of it. I will definitely come here again.

Line up so you can get in before the crowd to grab a seat at the bar. Go cheap and just order off the amazing happy hour menu, but please take notice of my warning about the crowds.

Saturday happy hour is awesome. $1 sea cow oysters and $1 mussels are delicious. We also had a dozen raw little neck clams. I loved coming here to this raw bar and indulging in their happy hour specials. Crudo plates are terrific. Great place to eat.

Chips of shell in half the items on our large platter. At 8pm on a Saturday night, they should have their #1 shucker working. Prawns and lobster tasted like they'd been pre-cooked and frozen; mussels were great, crab was decent.

Delicious! The bisque is the best I've had anywhere - a bit spicy but very good! The wait is long - even if you make a reservation, expect to wait for your table. But the food is worth the wait.

I had the most awesome dinner here lately. I came here to celebrate my belated birthday with a girlfriend. I have to be honest, I wasn't expecting much. When I first arrived, my expectations were more or less met... I was the first to arrive so I was pointed towards a standing table with a drink menu, yet no one came to take my drink order for about 10 minutes. As someone finally walked over, my friend arrived, and we were taken to our table. We ended up ordering a bottle of Albariño, the crudo sampler, the San Sebastian, and the roasted crab, though we were seated for perhaps another 10 minutes before someone arrived to take our order. Albariño: fruity but dry, really nice pairing with almost every dish we ordered Crudo sampler for two: the scallop with soubise, pickled corn, chili, and chive blossom was the perfect start of this sampler. Super fresh, a bit spicy, some pop from the pickled corn, some creaminess from the soubise and fat from the olive oil. A really perfect bite, especially for scallops, which are messed up far too often. The second sample was butterfish with grapefruit, almond, pink pepper, and rosemary oil. It was tasty, but not as good as the first. The third was tombo tuna with citrus, chili, fennel, and black tobiko. It was a bit fattier than the first two, with some salt and crunch from the roe and a bit of spice from the chili. This one grew on me the more I ate it. The last was great though, arctic char with horseradish créme fraiche, wasabi tobiko, and dill. It was super fatty, with subtle spice from the wasabi tobiko to cut through the fat and the dill paired perfectly. Almost like a sophisticated lox and cream cheese! If I come back, I'll definitely stick to this one and the scallop. San Sebastian: tuna confit with romano beans, roasted red peppers, soft boiled egg, castelvetrano olives, caperberries, piparras, manchego, and tomato bread. Not too dissimilar from a Nicoise salad, but really delicious. Almost unexpectedly so. Each ingredient was perfect and strong on its own, but they all came together in a perfect combination as well. The bread was spicy with a nice char. The tuna was perfectly confit, and the whole dish was simple and fresh, with just a bit of olive oil to accentuate flavors. Roasted crab: with chili oil, fennel, and lemon. The sauce on the crab was awesome, spicy and peppery and perfect for dipping bread in. The crab was nicely roasted, flavorful, and easy to crack and eat. The fennel gave a nice finish against the oil. We finished with a caramel truffle, which was outrageously good and the perfect size to finish the meal without being too rich or overwhelming. Despite the weird/lazy service, it was a fantastic meal and I'm excited to come back.

Great date spot! You can usually get a seat at the bar without a reservation and you can sit next to your date vs just sitting across from them. If you love sashimi, this is the place for you. Great raw seafood selection and good selection of beer and wine to go with your entrees. Actually they have a very large selection of beer, which is surprising since you wouldn't normally think a nice restaurant like this has a large beer selection. The only thing they don't have much of is the dessert selection. They only serve chocolates and truffles, but if you don't have a sweet tooth, it's probably fine.
