Close Harbour Seafood
We made our reservation on Open Table and were quickly seated despite the restaurant being very busy. The restaurant was rebuilt after a fire a few years ago and the decor is very clean, modern, and aesthetically pleasing. The seats are a combination of benches and chairs and the whole place has a very cozy feel. Our server, Jessie, was noticeably one of the best servers I've had in a while. She was friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and helpful. Our reservation was on the later side for dinner and she informed us of menu items that were going fast - ie last 2 servings of boulliabaise, order it if you want it! The entire staff was excellent but Jessie in particular was attuned to what was going on in the kitchen and attentive to all of our needs, all with several busy tables. Also, we were not rushed at all, and made to feel welcome to relax with friends over a leisurely meal.
Now onto the food. First, everything was excellent and beautifully presented. I ordered the chocolate raspberry martini (picture) which was delicious and went down very fast because it was so yummy! I also ordered a half dozen oysters, and would recommend that they have their oyster choices on their specials menu rather than having to have the waitress give the list verbally. Having the choices listed with a description of the oysters, ie large, meaty, sweet, briny, etc., will help entice the brain to order oysters. I also ordered the crab tower (picture) which is made up of crab salad (not lump crabmeat like most restaurants), mango, tomato, red onion and avocado, with sriracha aioli It was a perfect light dish as I had had a late lunch. The aioli was spicy for my taste but as you can see, it circles the dish so I could avoid it as I preferred. The fish was very fresh. My husband had the crab stuffed flounder served with bacon wrapped potatoes. The bacon looked a little undercooked but his fish was also good. My friends ordered the boulliabaise and shrimp scampi, both of which looked gorgeous
Excellent Chowder and Shrimp Cocktail and a nice variety of other seafood meals on the menu. Service was excellent.
Nice dinner with friends. 2 had the cod which was good , I hade the award fish which was nice and fresh and 2 Diver scollops which looked great.
Chris our waitress was awesome.
Sluggish service; Nice menu options made unpleasant when served cold food by non attentive waitstaff on very quiet afternoon.
NE clam Chowder very good. Fig and Prosciutto arugula salad delicious. Our server was excellent. 5 of us enjoyed our meals and relaxing time together.
