Heard about this restaurant and I went a few months ago. What a mistake. I had the new england clam chowder which was very watery, not creamy like I expected. Also had the lobster roll which was filled with so much mayo. The decor is similar to a pete's tavern. There are dozens and dozens of great seafood places in the city...this one is near the bottom.

The food is so so...Way overpriced. The most uncreative chef in NYC.. Wine list put together by a wino. Trust me if you want to have a good seafood. Dont come to fish it is just a nicer red lobster.

I took some out of town guests - Mother, Aunt and Cousin as well as my in-town sis'. ALthough the music was too loud, everything else was nice in terms of atmosphere. The have a few tables large enough for 6 without anyone getting their noses out of joint for larger parties. FOOD: THE OYSTERS ROCK! The soft shell crab very weel done, the lobster albeit small was not overcooked (thank god). The Lobster salad was excellent. THe blackend bass A+. Our only complaint would be the grilled shrimp - too few, too dry and not a good value. All in all, a welcome little corner in the village. Ask for Tristan, the new cutie from Lubbock to wait on you.

I went here a handful of months ago, and it was a great experience--great specials, finely grilled tuna, friendly service, and a perfect side dish of sauteed spinach with garlic. However, I just went back tonight and doubt I'll return. In fact, my whole party was a bit disappointed. Here are the highlights (or should I say lowpoints): -Waitstaff was less than stellar -Fish had a "charred" taste -Our raw oyster order was severly butchered (only 4 simple orders!) -Lobster roll was basically a glob of mayo with some pieces of lobster in it -Way too pricey for the serving sizes -Avoid the "salad"-- $9 for literally a slab of iceberg lettuce and a few slices of tomato. Should be labeled "Garnish for Hamburger - $9" All in all, there are many other great seafood places that I'll now consider. I thought I had found a reliable spot too...oh well.

Rudest staff in Manhattan. Avoid like the plague.

We love this restaurant for a no frills seafood experience. All three times we have been, the staff has been so accomodating and friendly. We usually get the seafood tower for two and a bottle of wine, all for under $100!! There is never any overcrowding and the food is so fresh, we consider it a hidden secret!!!

I have eaten there three times for lunch. Pricey food but quite good. One of my guests had to leave from one lunch because the main course hadn't arrived after 60 minutes.
