Salty Neptune Oyster

We started w/ the crudo appetizer...sounded like something interesting, but overpriced ($15) for what was basically a small salad w/ two thin slices of yellowtail tuna and a few warmed 1/2" wide pieces of unagi eel. The yellowtail was marinated in something that made it taste spicy (hot), but also didn't taste like yellowtail.

Lobster roll had nice big chunks of buttered lobster on a warm buttered roll. The fries that came w/ it were crunchy, but had way too much salt on them.

Also had the marlin which was maybe a 4"x4"x1" piece of marlin cooked on the outside and rare on the inside. The fish was good, but was topped by a salad and some crunchy green things that looked like peas in a sauce that was way too salty.

Unfortunately, both of us ended up w/ stomach aches after dinner, so I'm not sure if the crudo was bad or what. Definitely not the experience we thought it'd be from all the positive reviews... :-(
