Sidewalk dining in the Gaslamp District! – Nothing better than a beautiful spring evening, good service, and decent food for a fair price. I ate here yesterday, and got just that. I started with a spicy tuna roll appetizer... a decent roll with plenty of heat for $7, and another $7 for a decent glass of white wine. I had my eye on the Cioppino... a favorite of mine, for $22... but by the time I finished the sushi and some crusty french bread, I though I'd get something a little smaller... so I settled on the "Ocean Salad" for $14 - described as mixed greens covered with calamari, scallops, and shrimp. HAH! It wasn't small at all! It was a large plate of greens, with a LOT of seafood - guessing 8-10 ounces - on top, and dressed with a nice tangy dressing. Excellent! Maybe I'll go back tonight for the cioppino!
nice surroundings but food was boring – sorry to say actually, but I tried their "signature" dish, recommended by the waitress, the crab broil or bake, proposed to be a new orleans specialty. extrememely disappointing. Honestly - it was like creme of tomato soup with lots of crab in it and a scoop of white steamed rice. okay - lots of crab, but flavor wise incredibly boring after the second bite. Perhaps if the tomatoes were fresh, cut up with herbs and then the cream - ? How about some complexity!!! I'm from SF so the price was what I would expect, but this dish at least was sub-par.
