Great place for lunch & dinner, awesome food and very good service. I was here twice in my short stay of four days and both occasions, was very well served. Try their Yellowfish Tuna and Wagyu Cheese Burger.

Came here for a group dinner and was recommended the steaks. An excellent suggestion and one we did not regret. Most ordered the rib eye. The "lite" meal of a house burger was huge! Great food, great service and very enjoyable evening. One tip: they are kind of open plan - open doors and windows which is pretty, but COLD.... More

This is a steak house ... we stopped for a light dinner. We each had a bowl of soup .. both were delicious. and an appetizer. Finished with a housemade chocolate cake ... Excellent service and the trays passing us to other tables looked very good.

Had a business dinner with colleagues during a scientific meeting held at the convention center. Conveniently located; only a few steps away. Several entrées were ordered and they looked very good. I had the Chilean Sea Bass ($42) with creamed spinach ($8) and sautéed fresh corn ($8). The corn is delicious. The fish was tasty, but was not my first... More

Nice steak dinner with a great choice of wines. Nice to have a sommelier as your waiter. Attentive and friendly, great recommendations. We showed up early for dinner- as we skipped lunch and had been around town the whole day. They were not bothered by our overly casual attire. Good location. Priced like other steakhouses. Recommend!

Recently had a "Temper Tantrum" on the patio. The drink was mostly shaved ice, very little orange and pomegranate juice and even less blended rums. I took about 3 draws on my straw and the liquid was gone. Now I know why they call it a temper tantrum because you want to have one if you choose this way overpriced... More

great place, great location. love the outdoor dining options. I remember thinking the name sounded more like a steak house than seafood. I'll tell you what, seafood is outstanding! pricy place, but you get what you pay for.

I have eaten here before a few times and have always been nothing but pleased. The service is always good, very friendly. The ambiance is great. Location close to Petco Park and the Conference Center. This last time the food was not as as consistently good for everyone in our party. Steak usually is the best, but it was overlooked... More
