We went on a Monday and there was still a pretty good amount of wait time. But the crab was delicious. Everything else left a bit to be desired, such as the bisque and the Uni. But the main purpose of going was for the Crab. They were already out of ask their crab specials by the time we sat at 4pm. So if you want anything other than king crab legs I guess you gotta get there earlier. But the king crab was really good, so no complaints here!

We picked up the order at 5 today. We ordered a box crab which is taste like a dead crab. I felt very uncomfortable when I drove back to Bay Area. I won’t suggest you buy a crab in their restaurants. But their lobster and soups are good. Especially the Maine Lobster. It is fresh and sweet. Much better than the crab but I have to give a bad comment because it is not acceptable to pay 60 bucks to buy a dead crab. I hope they can do it better.

We got the mix appetizer, abalone and pasta with lobster. The abalone size is small and the meal was so salty unfortunately. The pasta with lobster size was good little bit salty but it was still good. The appetizer was good. The prices considered high comparing to the size. The view is nice. I may come next time but will try something else and will ask to reduce the salt in all meals.
