Extremely expensive food for smaller than appetizer portions, poor service, waited forever for the food.

This place was a disappointment to me. Oysters arrived doused with a strong mignonette (raw shallots and red wine vinegar), which made it impossible to actually taste the oysters. Had their signature dish, the skate wing, and although the fish was fresh and well prepared, the parmesan broth was way, way too strong and salty. Pork bellies were lacklustre, lobster obscured by overspiced guacamole. In short, this is food for a jaded palate. If you like fish with chorizo, pickled this and that, sauces that dominate, this is the place for you. If you want to actually taste your seafood, maybe not.

I really like this restaurant and was once again pleased with the meal I had yesterday. However, I was disappointed at how warm my glass of red wine was and mentioned it to the waiter who said there was nothing they could do about it because the kitchen is very warm. I thought that was a very strange response. On the way out, I took notice that indeed the bottles of wine behind the bar were situated next to the open kitchen area. What kills wine faster than heat? Maybe someone in charge could recognize that's an awfully dumb place to store the wine?

I had the tasting menu with friends last Sunday the 28th. Everything was expertly prepared including the country fried skate...the only deep fried course on the menu...Yum!

The tasting menu on Sunday had very little variety to it as 3 of the 5 courses were of deep -fried fish. Though the meal is not expensive this tasting menu wouldn't make us to come back for more.

Loved the skate here. Everyone in our party was more than satisfied with the quality of their food. Portions are not large for the price, but the quality is definitely there.

Went for the prix fix Sunday menu, which was five small portions, but well prepared and nice presentation. I'd go back for that. At $2 a pop the oysters were a bit small, but also well presented and pretty fresh. The Oyster House has better oysters. Nice atmosphere and good service. All was well except for $10 for a 3 oz. pour of average red wine. Same with the martini and Manhattan. Short pours and high prices. I know alcohol is their profit center but come on! Why insult a potential repeat customer by being so cheap on the alcohol?!
