I was really hoping that this restaurant would be a great one. I'm sorry to say that the food was a HUGE disappointment.
I ordered a martini to start and it was served in a glass that had two huge chips on the side. I decided not to make a fuss and just drank from the other side of the glass.
To start, we ordered the Lobster bisque and the Fishworks chilled platter ((Albacore Tuna Tataki, Oysters , Prawns, honey Mussels, Manilla clams, fresh Horseradish, Mignonette, House prepared cocktail sauce). The lobster bisque was alright but tasted more like Campbell's Tomato Soup. The only item on the Fishworks chilled platter that was decent were the raw oysters and prawns. The mussels and clams didn't taste very fresh and were a tad dry. The tuna tataki was presented in a way that I've never experienced. It was two blocks of tuna that didn't look like it had been seared at all. It was simply two huge blocks of raw tuna that had a very strange texture.
For the main course, I ordered the Linguine and Manilla Clams served in a white wine garlic sauce. My date ordered the fish and chips. Both main courses were flops. The linguine was tasteless and I suspect it had been heated up in the microwave as it came out a tad too piping hot. The fish and chips were probably the worst of all the items we ordered. The fish was over cooked and the fries looked like they had been pre-fried and then re-fried. Also, there was way too much salt on the fries (to the point where it tasted bitter).
Service was decent and it is a nice cozy restaurant... I guess that's the only positive aspect of this establishment.
My date and I both agreed that we will not be returning.
