We went to dinner here with another couple. thoroughly enjoyed dinner, we had surf and turf, prime rib and crab cakes. We couldn't understand why they weren't busy considering how good the food was.
We went back a few days later and sat at the bar. Food was equally as good, but the bartender was just out there. Asked for a vodka and soda and got it in a rocks glass. Asked to change the TV channel to anything but women's basketball, and you guessed it, he puts on women's basketball. He just totally ignored us until it was time to pay and tip. Too late by then. Totally ruined our evening. I gave it 4 stars but this place has potential to be more.
Also the décor is a bit confusing. It looks like a seafood place on the outside and an Italian fine dining restaurant on the inside.

Went there with family (4 adults and 1 infant). Made happy hour where drinks were house pour (basically 2 for 1 and drafts $2). Nice selection of seafood, steaks and sandwiches. All were reasonably priced and our party was happy with everything they ordered. Waiter was pleasant and service was very good.

This place has potential to make the big leagues. Unlike the previous owners, they’re serious about giving us a nice dining experience.
They present a nice menu selection, and a vibrancy that’s missing from other places we’ve eaten at. On a recent Monday night the place was packed both at the tables and at the bar. They even had a keyboard player playing a nice musical selection.
Our main issues were the service which we found slow. My sense is the management is assigning too many tables to a thin wait staff. Just my opinion. Our food came out just ok!
Mussels were way to salty, the escargot needed more garlic and wine,my tortellini was excellent and the buffalo chicken dish was somewhat dry but decent. Serving some blue cheese on the side would have been nice!
As I said- -this place has potential but we’ll wait awhile for them to get through their spring training. Ido hope they make it!

Very good food! Nice small restaurant, not too noisy. Don’t let the goofy shark sticking out of the facade put you off. It’s lovely inside!

We arrived just before 730 and were soon seated in a booth vacated by diners who had been at an early sitting. The restaurant was quite full and the tables were beginning to turn over for second sittings.
We ordered two beers and these arrived quickly and we had a drink while we checked the menu. Quite a wide selection of dishes to choose from and a separate note of the evening’s specials.
We shared a plate of lobster spring rolls to start with. Not a large portion, just right as an appetizer.
My main came from the specials list, a trio of grilled fish (mahi mahi, three tail and shrimp served with potatoes and broccoli). J ordered panko shrimp and fries. Both plates were of a good size and we didn’t leave anything.
Service was good. We enjoyed the food and the waiter was happy we were leaving the table to enable another sitting of diners.
Clearly the restaurant is popular but we didn’t experience long waits for food or inferior service. An enjoyable evening.
