Great location, right on the water. Waiters very unattentive, hosts no help when we asked her for a different table. My friend had oysters and got sick while we were still there, had to go to the hospital.

Ate here for the first night in Greenwich and will eat here for the second. Amazing appetizers as well as entrees and dessert. Have absolutely nothing to complain about and the chef is a magician. Thank you for the service.
