So I took my SO to this highly touted seafood restaurant.
Here's the food review.
We ordered a lot of food. Not because it was THAT good, it was because it was THAT small, and very, very overpriced.
Beef Sashimi - It was yummy, a hint of smokey flavour, but $20 for 7 paper-thin slices? It was good but I could have easily got 3 orders of 'also pretty good' Beef sashimi at most Japanese restaurants for the same price, that's a lot more beef.
Wild Prawns - Wow they were the biggest prawns I've ever ate, very large and quite juicy, but was it sitting in salt water too long? It was a bit salty even though the oil/sauce they used for this plate wasn't salty. 4 pieces for $17, you be the judge.
Ahi Tuna - I felt that the toppings didn't mix very well with the tuna. The tuna itself was flattened so much I couldn't really taste it that well.
Swimming Scallops - Tasted pretty good. It had a little bit of bread crumbs(?) on top, good texture, quite a fine dish. Only qualm was, once again, so much for so little. $15?
Fresh Oysters - Can't really mess this up, very fresh 'n clean. It had a very refreshing sauce to go with it too, not sure what it was, some vinegrette and shallots?
Lobster - Quite juicy, this dish was very good albiet a bit rubbery but maybe I'm just overly picky since I eat out a lot.
Dessert was not very memorable, except for the fact that it was 10+ dollars.
The white that the waitress recommended to us was actually quite enjoyable. She was also fairly attentative to fill our glasses quiet promptly.
Ambiance was nothing spectacular. I like how they put up a TV at the bar showing what's really going on in the kitchen + sushi bar.
Overall the night was pleasant but holy what a dent in my wallet! The bill was over $300 for the 2 of us!
Don't get me wrong I am definitely not 'cheap' but it's just that I've ate at many places and I've had much better for much cheaper.
