    The food was great! Amazing half shell oysters , star of the dish as it should be. Scallop and butterfish were very good, wish my vocabularies library was bigger to describe them. We love the vibe and the staffs. Definitely will be back.

    I had high hopes based on the reviews but our seafood didn’t have a lot of flavor. Our server was nice but she didn’t check in with us very often as I think they were understaffed. Also disappointed that they don’t have a full bar. Expensive dinner that wasn’t worth it.

    Overall very good. Creative dishes and plates that looked like paintings. Service from Clay was very intuitive and attentive without disturbing the rhythm of the meal. Will go back. Bobby O

    It was super good! Several different flavors levels in every bite. Butter fish was awesome. Poke amazing. My husband loved the filet. It’s pricey but excellent.

    lovely, fresh-caught Pacific coast seafood, with beautiful presentation. There are a few non-seafood dishes which are probably just as delightful, but I always gravitate to the fish
