This was the some of the worst duck I've ever had. For $16 you get ONE leg and it tastes like chicken - no joke. Horrible. I hope their seafood is better or this place won't see 2010.

I went to this restaurant with some friends this weekend. The atmosphere was fine, wait staff polite and corkage policy well posted... but the food was miserable. I had the salmon with butter and salt... not terrible, but pretty bland. My boyfriend had the red snapper with eggplant salad. In his first few bites he found a few bones. Pretty poor, but we were willing to look past it. Then he got a mouthful of scales. The waitresses explanation was that red snapper is a boney fish and it is hard to get all the bones out. We didn't make a big scene, cause were just not those kind of people, but I definitely would not recommend going there and I certainly won't ever go back.

Some of the tastiest and freshest seafood in town. Simple grilled fish, scallops, shrimp, etc. - the best, with tasty sauces. (My favorite is the ginger sauce.) The prices are surprisingly reasonable for the quality. The wait staff is kind and warm. Highly recommend.

I think this place is great, having been there approx 10 times for lunch and dinner. The food is amazingly fresh and tasty no filler. I am amazed that anyone could complain about the incredibly fair (actually, laughably cheap) and VERY well posted corkage policy. It is obviously a small place with limited staff, with maybe a slight service delay on weekends but that's almost part of the charm. Such nice people, too. Let's not let the world know.

As the manager, I feel that it is unfair for the restaurant receiving the below ambiguous and overstated review. We have been posted an 8”x11’’ with 48 font size B.Y.O.B. policy sign along with a wine glass picture at the entrance of the store since July, only an excessive drinking person may miss it. And the same exact copy is posted next to the cahier desk. It is clearly stated that there is no corkage fee for first three bottles, an additional is (only) $ 5 for parties of six, where else can you find in NYC? Initially, there is no corkage fee at all, which left a gap to some customers who brought up to 10-15 bottles without ordering main entrée, then settled down until the store closed and left less than 10[%] or no gratuity. The total of their bill was 158.10 ($5 corking fee and 20[%] gratuity are included in the bill) which was $26.35 per person. Nonetheless, one of them claimed that we miscounted $10 cash which he insisted it must be 82 dollars ed in the check folder. Though, the waiter and I carefully counted the money 3-4 times it was only $72, we decided to re-adjusted the sale price and charged back (returned) the ten dollar amount ( $3.3 on each cards) through their credit cards at the end. I accepted that it was a little crowded when the party arrived and many of our side dishes were out. However, we arranged to serve all the main courses to all our guess birthday party before other tables and the six dishes were done at the same time. The waiter brought out 2 dishes at a time and there was no long interval of time between them. Moreover, the waiter did his service by asking “who was the food?” It was clear to him that the food were alright and there were nothing wrong with it, plus a tap water in their glasses were always filled and full at all times.

I went with a bunch of friends for a bday dinner - it's byob so we brought 4 bottles of wine. Menu says we must order one main course per person or there is a $10 corkage fee per bottle - no problem. As we order, they are out of the duck, then brown rice, then garlic bread. The lady tells us she'll bring waffle fries instead of garlic bread - turns out they're out of that too. All is fine. Food comes out in two's, with a good few minutes in between - a little annoying - my food was first and by the time everythign was out was a bit cold. Still fine. When the bill comes, there is a corkage fee included. We ask what it is? Apparently, 1 out of 5 menus (not the one i had) stipulates 3 bottles max, corkage fee for more - still fine, even with the 20% added gratuity. Some of us decide to pay cash, some credit. We give half in cash, and ask them to split the rest on the cards. When the cards come back, the amount is for more than it is per person and the bill says that we gave $10 less in cash than we actually did. Bottom line - The food that they weren't out of was good, the service was really poor - these people need to get more staff in the kitchen and learn how to run a restaurant!

My boyfriend and I were the first customers in this neighborhood restaurant the day it opened, and we were pleasantly surprised with the quality and presentation of the food, as well as the helpful and friendly attitude of the owners/staff. I like having the ability to select the fish and method of preparation, and then choose the sauce/vegetables to accompany it, There are some very tasty choices. The lunch special is a great value considering it includes two starters and an entree for $10. I recently ordered this for delivery my meal arrived fast, hot, and nicely packaged.
