Being HUGE oyster fanatics my GF and I were really looking forward to our 4:30 reservation on a Tuesday. After locating this place and finding parking (no easy feat) we walked into what appeared to be the backroom of a grocery store with a red curtain separating the 2 spaces. This place seats about 15 people MAX including the bar. There was only 1 person working! This poor girl was taking orders, making drinks, bussing tables, and shucking oysters! We knew from the moment we walked in that this was going to be bad. This place has 0.50 cent oysters from 4-5 Mon - Thurs. The problem is because they only have 1 person working there, they only allow a dozen oysters ordered per table at a time WHEN THE SERVER HAS TIME TO GET TO YOU. So you know where this is going. We got there at 4:30, ordered at 4:45, and received 12 oysters at 5pm! That was it! BOOM.
Besides that, the bottled beer was warm and the oysters looked like they were shucked with a drill... mangled. No mention about what type of oysters they were or anything. Just a plate of mangled oysters.
At one point we asked her for a couple Caesars (apparently a house specialty). She gave us this look and LITERALLY told us that it was a bad idea to order them because it would take too long!!! OMG. This is the point where we threw our hands up and started looking for the hidden cameras.
If you are oyster fanatics like we are (or even if you're not), do yourself a favor... DO NOT GO HERE. Check out Rodney's in Yaletown or Chewie's in Kits or La Brasserie on Davie (West End). Other than that, do what I did, learn to shuck yourself you lazy bastard, ha!
BTW: We are huge foodies and do not unjustly chastise restaurants.
