we choose this restaurant for the sea food meals, to get started we order lobster bisque, we always order it, but the flavor was far from original taste, don't order it there, them for entree paella sea food, but they tell us there no more, at 8:30 pm? them my wife order lobster shrimp mac and cheese, but it was more mac and cheese that lobster a real kindergarden meal for $22.00? my but my shrimp pasta pomodoro was really good, may we should order something different, finally we didn't order dessert for fear to make more mistakes, may be the rest of the food was more delicious, but we never going back to this restaurant

“Below average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

Had been here several times in past but this visit presented new issues. They substituted western fish on a salad and tried to tell us it was crabmeat. They eventually owned up to it by saying they were out of lump crabmeat. this is the first issue I've had here so I 'll chalk it up to an accident.

We visited Chattanooga with our 6 year old grandson, having dinner here the last evening of our visit. Found it to be better ambiance than most Chattanooga venues. Food was excellent!!!! Great seafood. Recommend it highly to those in Chattanooga, who don't mind spending a little more than the usual restaurants in Chattanooga.

“Excellent Ambiance AVERAGE Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

Our evening began with prompt seating in a lovely artistically dynamic dinning room, full of customers loudly talking over the kitchen artillery. Our drinks appeared quickly and were delicious. Since this was our first visit we asked for Menu suggestions from the waitress. For an appetizer she suggested Calamari, but we chose the Tuna 2 Ways: a poke of tuna, avocado and mango paired with sliced seared tuna showcased over pickled cucumber slices with a side of greens. It was supposed to come with a cilantro lime dressing but they must have been out or worse just plain forgot it all together. Just totally blah, so we asked for some sea salt to bump up the flavor of the Tuna to try to salvage the dish. One waitress disappears into the melee of the kitchen while another returns to our table with smoked rock salt in a dish informing us "we can't find a grinder"! Fine-no big deal. Then we had ordered a Caesar and a spinach salad, both tasty, reaffirming we had made a good dining choice sans the appetizer. I ordered the Maryland lobster and lump crab cakes entree (if you have read ANY of my restaurant reviews you know I adore crab & order it habitually) and my hubby chose the Grouper Picatta....it suffices to say as much as I LOVE lobster and crab, I only finished one cake. Beautifully presented with both a tartar and mustard sauce, steamed veggies but the normally sweet crab and buttery lobster were just really bland. I didn't want to upset my husband who promptly exclaimed that my homemade Picatta had way more flavor than his dish. With that statement I turned to the couple seated next to us to inquire about their meal, both had chosen a seafood pasta.... Gentleman replied " Great Atmoshpere, average food!" she nodded in agreement.
Enjoy the bar, the friendly waitstaff, the unique glass sculptures, but don't expect the Chefs to be on par with the Bartenders and decor.
