The Sandbar Fish House & Market Restaurant Review

: Since its relocation from downtown, Andrew Weissman’s Sandbar, with chef Chris Carlson at the helm, has sailed ever-calmer seas, its repertoire expanding, the cooking becoming more self-assured. The kitchen offers plates such as sautéed barramundi in black truffle foam and Georges Bank skate wing with a salad of melon and fennel. Cold, poached arctic char with yuzu aïoli makes for a change of pace. Raw seafoods that made Sandbar’s reputation are still on offer, of course; think scallops with yuzu and ginger and several “seviches” --- notably the octopus. A Mexican burger has crept onto the lunch menu --- and it’s among the best in town; fancier tournedos are a possibility at dinnertime. But a much-expanded selection of both whites and reds means that the impressive (if still smallish) wine list can accommodate all tastes admirably. Conclude with the Key lime pie that is Sandbar’s contribution to the dessert hall of fame --- though we wouldn’t turn down the Tahitian vanilla cheesecake.

A disappointment from a great chef.

We were only offered one little slice of bread. We were over charged for food. The waiter keyed in 1 lb. not 1/2 lb. and charged us for the full lb. They didn't say there was an up charge for Kumamotos and then charged us the full price. We had to send the bill back twice before corrected. The fresh oysters and shrimp are good, but the entrees are not so great.
