I had previously been to the restaurant on a 'normal' week and everything had been fine. However, I went there for Restaurant Week and found that it was a completely different story. The menu offers some rather disappointing dishes. Moreover, the manager told us that they cannot accept foreign IDs as proof of age, which is ridiculous as we had previously ordered wine in this restaurant with the exact same ID papers. The manager was haughty and displeasant to talk to. I had planned on making this one of my regular neighborhood places, but I don't think I'll be going back to a restaurant with this kind of floor manager. On the positive note, the service was good and our waiter very friendly.

The menus for restaurant week are published in advance & given on a website. One of the options was unavailable & sold out at 7:30 because they forgot that this was a holiday weekend & did nothing to remedy this situation. While two of our courses were nicely presented, I was so disappointed with the outcome of this situation that I will look elsewhere next time.

We had heard this place had good fish and decided to try it when we had to entertain guests from overseas. Took the waiter 10+ minutes and a second reminder to bring us our tap water in addition to the sparkling we had ordered. Lime also required a second reminder. Then we had to deal with logistics. There were four of us and we were initially seated next to a party of 8 or so. The server of the other table had to ask one of our party to move her chair every 5 minutes to get to the other side of the large table -our guest had no where to move. We asked our waiter what the deal was and he said "I am afraid she is going to have to do that all night" as if it was the most natural thing in the world to be bumped into on a regular basis while one is eating dinner with friends in an upscale restaurant. There was no apology -we got the sense that we, as paying diners, were interfering with the smooth functioning of their food delivery and table service. Food, on the other hand, was pretty good. We had the Atlantic salad, the sushi rolls for appetizers. The entrees were delicious -the tuna, teriyaki sea bass, chicken, salmon were all very good. Dessert (fondue and choc layer cake) was terrific. I dont think we will go there again. Definitely not worth it.

Stopped by after a great day at the park. Service was very pleasant and attentive, shared several very deliciously prepared appetizers (crab cakes, shrimp dumplings, sushi, lobster spring rolls and some oysters from the raw bar) with some wine. Everything was simply delicious and we had a wonderful time! Will definitely recommend.

Based upon recommendation from friend my wife and I ate here our first night. They sat us immediately with our reservation although restaurant was very crowded. Service as excellent, food delicious. I had grilled mahi mahi and wife the red snapper special. We would recommend this place for fresh seafood at a reasonable price.

I went here for brunch with my Mother and roommate almost two weeks ago. I found the ambience somewhat commercial not as cozy and comfortable as other brunch spots. But the service was great - although we weren't allowed to have mimosas until noon (granted, that's not their fault...it's the law) - and my omelette was yummy. All in all, a good place, but nothing to ooh and ahh about. Don't think I'd go back again.
