The service was absolutely spectacular and very well timed. The food was delicious! If it were acceptable to lick my plate clean, I would have. Will be coming back!!
Fantastic as always! Really fresh seafood and oysters! The service was great, there when needed but not overly intrusive. Their oyster selection is phenomenal and meets they're descriptions.
Great food and great service.
It was my first time here, and it was an awesome experience. The server was polite and very friendly. I came here with a co-worker for lunch and everything on the menu looked good. I know everyone comes here for the lobster roll but I wanted something different. I started with a cup of seafood gumbo, which was so delicious, with garlic bread. I had the shrimp/oyster PoBoy and the sauce was amazing. Next time I will have to try the lobster roll and the hush puppies. I liked this place so much that I already made a reservation on my wife's birthday!
The service was excellent and food top notch!
Excellent food. Will go again, for sure. Highly recommend.
This was my first visit and I was very pleased. I will be back soon. The food was delicious. I enjoyed myself for my lunch meeting.
My husband & I enjoyed our dinner.
Hands down the absolute best dining experience I have ever had!!! Food was amazing and service was excellent! They made us feel like king and queen that night! I recommend everyone to go try out Optimist and you will definitely be back once you go once!!! Thank you Optimist for making this evening ever so special!!!
Excellent service and appetizers were all superb
Great birthday dinner!
Excellent experience all the way around, a little pricey but the execution is flawless. Wish I could eat here more regularly
This is my 4th time at the Optimist, and I have yet to find ONE bad thing to say about the place. The service was impeccable, the seafood was VERY fresh and delicious, the small plates were creative and satisfying, and the cocktail selection complemented the small plate perfectly. I would recommend this place again and again! Never disappoints.
Great sea-food. Amazing oysters. Endless whine list.
I have eaten here before and had a great experience. This was not the case on this visit. We arrived early for our reservation and were able to get seated right away which was really nice. Our waitress had 17 things to discuss with us even before we gave her our drink order. No one at the table could hear her and she kept using phrases that no one understood. The oysters were AMAZING and the best part of the night. Each of our entree's were okay but not worth of the price tag.....lacked good flavor and the fish seemed to be overcooked. The waitress kept rushing us all night to order and was at our table every couple of minutes. Even when she checked on us, she would leave empty plates and glasses. The service was poor and the food was weak for the price. I might go back for the oysters but that might be it.
