The best fish we've had in 7 years and that was in Carmel CA. Impeccable service, pricey but worth it.

Hello GinusG, I apologize for you unfortunate experience. I am wondering however, where it is you were sat? There are no tables by the bar and the bar is the only place we mix drinks. Maybe you are confusing our restaurant with somewhere else.
