    Be aware: they don’t accept Apple Pay (!!! For crying out loud, it’s 2022 already) Service and food were very good. Really what I expected. Price a lot more than I was hoping for: appetisers for $25 and main $40 on the lower end. But I guess I understood it wrong on the Michelin guide when they said $40 avg. That is the main dish only, not the dinner (minus drinks)

    All the seafood in the seafood platter is over cooked except for the raw oysters, the taste and portion does not justify the price. The clams in the that was served in the platter has been dead for a long time and had a funny taste. The clam chowder is overwhelmed by the bacon flavor and the actual clam is so over cooked it taste like rubber. The reason they provide toothpicks at the front door is to pick the seafood rubber that is stuck in your teeth. Horrible food, maybe the chef should consider going back to culinary school to learn how to make seafood.

    My entree (Mussels) was delicious. However the Caesar Salad ( appetizer) was average. The lettuce was not as fresh as it could have been and was barely chopped. The croutons were outstanding and definitely homemade. My husband’s green salad had great flavor- he would recommend. We also enjoyed a delightful house- made Japanese fruit sorbet. We would return to this restaurant and try other offerings.

    Alex, our server was great. Very attentive. Really enjoyed having him. For the food: The good was the oysters, octopus and fish and chips were excellent. The not as good were the fish tacos, which had very little fish and the cavatelli, which was a little bland and also didn't have much seafood. The sancerre was great as was their Manhattan.

    Great fish and chips which I was pleasantly surprised with as it was much less than other Items on the menu. I do think we were a little confused because the menu prices reflected a restaurant that was very high end dining…. However, the staff was very casual and wearing tshirts. Obviously, the ambiance didn’t effect our quality dining experience. Seafood Cavatelli was very good but seafood wasn’t enough for what was expected, mostly just pasta and pesto.

    GT Fish and Oyster is very homey BUT has a modern elegance, also. The manager, CT, provided the BEST service I have EVER had. Great personality and very knowledgeable about everything on the menu. He made the experience feel like we had known him forever. However, the food, although delicious, isn’t worth the price tag. My fiancée wasn’t a fan of the oysters but loved the crab legs. Very underwhelmed for the amount of money I spent in the food department. The menu is very limited as well. Literally oysters and a small fish sample.

    Always the best of everything - the food, the staff, the vibe. The soft shell crab (seasonal) and the tropical cheesecake dessert were highlights but the fish tacos are always the best anywhere on earth.

    My wife and I went for a happy hour. We ordered 1 drink and 4 oysters each plus a half mussel. The bill after tip was over $80. The mussel dish came with 11 mussels- 5 of which were closed and 3 of which were so gritty we didn't eat them. I have no issue paying for a high quality meal, but this was very far from it.

    Birthday celebration dinner, oysters excellent, champagne served properly cold, very nice Albarino. Fish and chips well prepared (thought fries better at GT Prime) trout was excellent. Great service. Noise level quite high.
