The only explanation for my experience is that they have two chefs and I must have visited twice on the night chef let the apprentice cook. I always give a place two chances, just in case I caught them on a bad night. My first impression was great, nice place, friendly staff, good salad; however, the meal was a great... More

This place was amazing! We stopped in at around 9:30pm after a few drinks at the Speakeasy and I'm so happy we did. Our meal was wonderful and the staff was fantastic! My fettuccine with cod, shrimp and tiger prawns was out of this world- I mean seriously outstanding! And the portions were pretty generous too.

I bought an $18 chicken pasta penne with pesto, and it tasted horrible. It was drowning in sauce and pepper. But nice staff

Bruschetta a good choice. Marche salad was the best bit of the meal. Sweet potato gnocchi didn't quite work, chewy and well I'm wrinkling my nose as I type. Lamb chop ok. Snapper with fontina risotto good. Pretty average overall. Weird wait staff. Perhaps we caught them on an off day.

Our experience was fabulous. We had a perfect seat by the window. Our service was great and the meal was delicious! The pasta is amazing. A great place for date night or girls night out.

We had the spaghetti and meatballs and the chicken and mushroom linguini and they were absolutely delicious! They told me they could fix any of the pasta entrees with a gluten free pasta and they could fix any of the other entrees made with flour gluten free by using a rice flour. The linguini that I had that was made... More

We have been going to this family-owned and operated restaurant for many years, and we are never disappointed! The atmosphere with it's white table clothes lends itself to a classy yet comfortable dining experience. There's even a cozy fireplace in the corner. The wait staff are always friendly, efficient, and make you feel like one of their family. The menu... More

Glad we went there instead of another restaurant on E Street recommended by someone at the Best Western. It was much less expensive but had white table cloths, and the food was excellent and well-presented. Portions were not overly big, but perfect for the traveler who has no way to take it home. Despite being quite busy, service was efficient... More

The food was delicious, the service was excellent and we had such an enjoyable experience we rebooked the window table for the next night! I would recommend it above the Sea Grill anytime. If you are in Eureka you need to try this family run restaurant!
