My wife and I came to this restaurant on the recommendation of our b&b owners. My wife loved the Lobster Risotto, but I was disappointed with the Rockfish. It seemed that there was more crust than fish. I would come back, but order something different.

The food was terrific and reasonably priced for seafood of this quality. The restaurant was tastefully decorated and the service while friendly at first became rushed and seemed overwhelmed as the place became more crowded. Will definitely go again

Quaint little neighborhood restaurant, quiet, staff very accommodating . Wide range of seafood choices, beet salad is always a must for each of my trips, desserts Lemon torte and creme brulee--loved the pecan crusted walleye and lobster risotto!

All the fish looked marvelously fresh - it was difficult to make a choice. I had the skate, filleted and pan fried: a pure delight.

We dine here often, because the fish is always fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. The homemade soups are very interesting. The tuna dishes are outstanding. Service (Judita) is friendly and helpful. It's well worth the trip from the suburbs.

As many others have noted, I didn't see any mention of gluten free meals. I tend to be pragmatic..why not call the restaurant? The phone number is 202.466.3474 .
