This restaurant was recommended to me by a server at my hotel and I was initially skeptical because I honestly just didn't feel like anything on the menu. Despite this initial reaction, I loved the trout amandine and the Italian hamburger was a unique and delicious dessert I had never encountered before. The service was good even though my server wasn't prepared to offer suggestions on the menu. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Always amazing - I have too many favorites to list but their shrimp toast, lobster roll, galbi flavored hamachi, and uni pasta are incredible (and I don't normally like uni). Also had their seasonal blackberry pie recently and it was a perfect blend of savory crunch and fresh berries (not too sweet either).

Great atmosphere...service was good but at times spotty. Food came out fairly quickly even considering the first two dishes were the hamachi and skipjack i.e. raw. Don't get the ribs...stick to the seafood. Hamachi, skipjack, shrimp toast and smoked fish dip with crackers and Tabasco sauce were excellent. Fries are a must. Wine on the other'll need a grant or loan for a bottle. Cheapest bottle of white wine on the menu is $78...two bottles in the $90 range and then all other bottles in the $100-200 range. Most expensive bottle, I believe, was $1098...yeah, I thought the wine list was quoted in pesos or something. Nope. Like I said, you need a grant or loan for the wine here. It's too bad because they could be making so much more of a margin on the wine if they just lowered their prices. Maybe a four top would buy 2-3 bottles instead of just 1 bottle to enjoy with their meal. Too bad so sad.

Food was excellent although the portions were very small. The lobster roll and the chicken sandwich were the best; very delicious and fantastic. It was a great meal and had a very memorable dining experience.

Fun lively place. The décor is perfect and not over the top. A good change of pace. Solid food choices everyone for the fried chicken sandwich which is a little amazing. Prices.... Well you are n a tony neighborhood.

Overhyped. Servers were friendly and approachable. Cool decor. That's the end of it. The smoked Maui fish dip looked fancy but tasteless. The so-called smoked Maui fish had been shredded into teeny tiny pieces and mixed with some bland white sauce. All I was presented was a spoonful of white lumpy sauce topped with thinly sliced cucumbers. Short ribs were tender but the sauce was quite pedestrian. Perhaps it's not fair to judge the restaurant good or bad based on the few dishes ordered, yet my first experience dining here wasn't impressive enough that I would be eager to come back anytime soon.
