We were wowed by this place! It’s a kind of hole in the wall atmosphere but the food was fantastic! I had the special - Seared scallops over a bed of squid ink risotto. The ceviche we shared was delicious! Everyone was impressed. I feel like they deserve a better location and nicer building.

I am making this one star because I was quite disappointed about how my situation was handled. I arrived ten minutes before my reservation, just to have them tell me someone had claimed to be me, and took my reservation, and were currently sitting at my table. These people just pointed to a name on an open and visible reservation list to take claim. Being a busy night, we had to wait a bit for another table to open up. This was just not acceptable. The person I was with is very non-confrontational, so I didn't pursue it, but I made it clear I was upset. Even though I wanted to know who these people were, so I could tell them to get out of my seat. I wish management threw them out or would of made them wait instead of me, or done something else, but hey, no one seemed to care for my opinion. It just grinds my gears when people get away with being garbage because no one will stand up for themselves, so they continue to walk all over everyone. I was such in a foul mood, I couldn't even enjoy my dinner. I wanted to leave, and go somewhere else, but again, my partner wanted to stay, so I was forced to stick around. As for the food, it was decent, but not for the price. I could of gotten oysters x3 the size they served for the same price in the Plaza. The lobster, my main course, was dry and could of been juicy if done right, I can buy lobster half the price at the China market and make it myself better. The appetizer was good and the drinks well made. Would of been happier by the huge bill if they comp a drink or appetizer for the drama I had to go through, especially after a good tip my partner insisted on leaving that I disagreed with because he felt me wanting answers stressed out the door girl - if she was competent enough to hide the reservation list, it would of not been an issue in the first place! Should of sent the check to the table that took our reservation, since they wanted to be us that badly. The servers seemed nice, but mostly too my partner, they in general avoided me because they knew I was upset at there service and would rather avoid an issue instead of fixing it. And one server, despite how busy it was, found the time to neglect her tables and have a nice long conversation with my partner about absolutely nothing, that somehow I became invisible upon. She should really talk to guys on her own time. And I dunno, away from mine. Or if you have that time, it should more be about how your going to fix and or make up the situation that happened. Instead of laughing how your the one who let the couple point out our name, say it was them, and sat them. Too bad I didn’t think it was funny. Will never come here again. Not worth it. I could of went to a place like Jax, and gotten the insane “hook, line and sinker” for the same price I paid here with tons more and better food (go look). And they would of kept our reservation. You think a Plaza joint would be too expensive and not worth it, compared to this shady place in the middle of nowhere. Yes, I am still salty overall.
