    Everything was great except the server that needs more Customer service training. Her demeanor was harsh and abrupt. Her voice is loud so she has to learn how to temper down her intonation and be more friendly.

    Server seemed really green and not knowledgeable about the food when we had questions, quoted us wrong price on one item. When we asked what types of oysters they had we were simply told east and west coast, and didn’t know when we asked for more specific info. Had food runners run someone else’s food to our table five separate times - even when it was obvious we were eating dessert and again after we had paid. This was probably what made the experience so bad, as they kept interrupting us to give food and drinks that we didn’t order. It seems there is something going wrong either with training, table numbers, or the servers are putting food on the wrong tables. Either way, really really unimpressed.

    While other servers seemed very attentive, ours barely checked with us to see how we were doing. Two of us at the table ordered Tataki bowls and had rather immediate unpleasant reactions, wasting the investment. One employee kindly adjusted the wind flow as it was quite chilly. Overall, quite a disappointing expert.

    The location is amazing, we had a window seat overlooking the beach and ocean. I was hoping for some amazing seafood. My halibut was slightly overdone and the buerre blanc sauce had no flavour. Great place for drinks and an appy.

    Great service. Delicious meal, particularly the seasonal chef’s specials: heirloom tomato and burrata salad, grilled shrimp, and Portuguese seafood stew. Beautiful sunset. Worth every penny.
