After reading the Boston.com article about this place:
my husband and I decided to try it for ourselves last night. At 8pm on a Tuesday it was virtually deserted which is not that surprising, although it did fill up with big family groups as the evening got later.
We tried the ca bay mon that they reviewed in the article - 7 courses of fish for $29.95 for two.
We thought that the servers were very attentive and willing to walk us through how to actually dip and roll our first course, as well as how to work the table top stove that we used to cook the fish for both the first and second courses.
It was a great experience - most of the meal was delicious and the seven courses covered a variety of different preparations for the fish.
I think that overall my favorite courses were rolls we wrapped ourselves with lots of great salad to put in them and a fabulous dipping sauce, and sauteing garlicky fish in big pats of butter! There was a soup that came as the final course - a kind of rice and fish chowder. That was probably my least favorite - it reminded me disturbingly of fishy rice pudding. The texture seemed overly mushy for my liking.
Overall, I would definitely go back there again. The meal was a great value for the variety and amount that we got, and it was fun to try lots of different dishes.
