Recommend a good place for Oysters..

I have to take a couple of friends out for dinner/work/meeting shindig, and we were talking about a good oyster bar, or somewhere that serves really good fresh oysters. Some people mentioned Rodneys, Blue Water Cafe, and Joe Fortes.

Ive read the reviews and all, but what would you recommend?
Why would you pick one over the other?

Thanks

Each restaurant has a different atmosphere. I've never been to Joe Fortes but with Rodney's, it's more like a bar, have a few drinks, kick back and it can get pretty loud in there. Blue Water Cafe is a quieter restaurant and classier. They both have good oysters in my opinion.

Salad makes me squirt ranch dressing. Only half of that is an analogy.

Ebisu on Robson Japanese Fusion Restaurant
Not an "Oyster Bar" per se but we have extremely fresh oysters due to the high rapid turnover rate. Great value too and hip + contemporary atmosphere! Also got 4 different kind of sauces to try on the oysters!
We literally shuck hundreds of fresh ones every single day so nothing sits around for long! Guaranteed fresh! Full bar + Lounge for drinks to compliment your Oyster fest too!

Ebisu: $14 for a dozen of Royal Miyagi
Joe Fortes is $18 for HALF a dozen; you do the math
