Have been here for dinner, but the first time for lunch. And it was a lovely birthday lunch (mine) at the end of December. The restaurant was busy but not crowded, and as usual service was excellent. Loved the little bit of dessert to celebrate my birthday. We will be back soon.

Sad to say, it just misses the mark on quality. The food is NOT prepared from scratch like the previous owner Lawrence. I have dinned here 5 times now since it reopened and I am just not liking what they offer. Sorry guys but I will not be returning... The service is always very pleasant and the view is very... More

Unless someone has told you about this place, you would never think to go. It is part of a very small municipal airport...I do mean small...which gives it a very funky vibe. Love watching the small planes take off and land while dining. The food is fantastic and the service is great. Something different for a dining experience and well... More

My boyfriend chose the Final Approach for a Friday evening meal for three. It was our first visit since the restaurant changed hands some time ago. We were greeted promptly, given menus and ordered drinks, which also came quickly. Gluten-free options are available, which we appreciated. The menu has a variety of tempting offerings; we chose Grilled Halibut in a... More

As usual, the food was excellent and the service efficient, friendly, and welcoming. We had a crisp sauvignon blanc that went perfectly with the meal. Great food, great atmoshere. It... More

Thrown into a cardboard container with no liner between food and cardboard, needless to say turkey etc ended up tasting of the container. On top of this ordered Pumpkin pie for the dessert can't comment if it was good or not because when I got home it just wasn't there. Why I left a tip is beyond me, an incomplete... More

We have been to the Final Approach several time in the past year. Each time our brunch was great! Nice surrondings and wonderful food. The vegetarian brekkie bowl never fail to tantalize my taste buds. We have also been there for lunch and the calamari salad is second to none.
