Great view of estuary with great dining.

Long time restaurant in a scenic location. They always have great and varied menu when we dine there.

I hadn't been here in years, but attended a gathering on the upper floor. Very lightly staffed buffet. Those on staff were very pleasant, but probably could have used one more person. Food was ok except for the chicken, which tasted a bit like microwaved rubber. I think I shook the entire table trying to cut it. One of my... More

This is my 'go to' restaurant when I need a night out. The pasta is consistently delicious, but do save room for their desserts. While you eat you can watch sailboats and other water craft sailing by. On a rainy winter evening, the crackling fire in the fireplace is cheery, and the service has also been very good.

we were looking for something quieter than the downtown scene. This is in a very quiet location right on the water. Unfortunately the food was very disappointing, very bland, vegies overcooked, and the worlds smallest Martini.

This is a pretty good place to eat. Probably the best thing about this place is the view. it is right on the water, right across from Jack London Square. The food is just OK but there is a nice atmosphere in the building.

We had a coupon, so it was worth the trip ... if nothing else but the beautiful view overlooking Jack London Square. The food was okay, but not for what they were charging.

It was a Sunday night, and it was an uncrowded evening. They took us right in, and we were seated by the window. We had pasta. My wife had pesto which she loved. My marinara was a disappointment, not very much tomato flavor. Just ok. Our waiter stood a little far from the table, did not project his voice very... More

Had dinner last night with a friend. The service was wonderful. He was there but not invasive. The view of Oakland was beautiful. The salmon dish was ok. It has been better. I don't know what happened last night.

I've had lunch here many times for the years and it continues to impress me with it's food and service. Most recent visit was this past Saturday. The selection is very large and I really enjoyed the salmon dishes.

Thank Rick S
