    It was a great place to meet with a couple of friends and enjoy great service and excellent food. The vibe was certainly there, even though it was a sunday evening, The oyster selection was great, and we complemented it with some Tapas and Cava to drink. We'll definitely come back

    Server was rude and not helpful with the menu and choices. She walked away while I was asking a question, proceeded to take the order of a different table. I will never come back. The lobster was overcooked and chewy.

    We had the Baratta Pizza and it was perfect. We also had the grilled seafood platter and I’ve not had better seafood anywhere. The coffee creme brûlée was delicious. The service was outstanding. Can’t wait to come back to NYC to visit!

    Beautiful space with incredibly courteous and attentive staff. The food and drinks were stunning and tasted wonderful, and came out at the perfect pace; we ordered several appetizers that never overcrowded the table because the servers were very efficient in removing and bringing plates. Absolutely divine oysters. All 8 members of our party were deeply satisfied with their entrees, ranging from mushroom ravioli to strip steak to a seafood platter, the last of which they were kind enough to accommodate us and turn that typically shared dish into a single serving. I would be happy to come here again for another special occasion.

    It's a small place, but the food is excellent. I recommend making a reservation especially for a large group. In our case I made a reservation for 8 and at the last minute there were 9 of us and they did everything possible to accommodate us and give us excellent service. The salted fish is highly recommended.
