What Can You Tell Me About Gulfstream?

Anniversary dinner and I have been recommended to try a restaurant in Century City called Gulfstream. Any thoughts on this restaurant? Definite must order this? Thanks for any insight.
I can tell you that my experience at the Newport Beach location was horrid. The restuarant is from the Houston's chain, and has a large seafood menu.
My parents and I went, and we were very disappointed. I ordered a clam chowder, and it was so salty I couldn't eat it. My parents aren't the type to send stuff back, so I had to bite my tongue.
Dad ordered ribs, and felt they weren't tender enough for his liking. Mom ordered the crab cakes special (which were like $25 for 2) and gave one to my dad. She seemed to think they were just OK.
I ordered their chicken salad, which was tossed in this salty, salty creamy dressing. I ended up not eating it. The oysters on a shell looked appealing, and so did their other raw items. But, we were just so tentative after wasting so much food.
The tab was something like $100 for 3, not including tip. Can't remember what we'd ordered for drinks.
I will say that it is a beautiful restaurant, and it is very busy. I like how the place is spotless.
I much prefer Houston's and Bandeira, and I frequent Houston's.
Gotta run, but do a search here for my last report. What ever you do TELL THEM TO BRING IT NICE AND SLOW and to pass the bread. For further info --see my last post on Gulfstream and other comments.
The tuna burger is pretty good, but the fries are a bit too skinny for my taste. The atmosphere is pleasant. The draft beer is overpriced.
the greatest thing in the place is the sundae. Do not pass it up. the food is nice but not extraordinary.
Eat the fish of the day and it will be good. I like the Hummus, Smoked Trout and Avo app with toast point.
