Share a dessert, by sharing the entrees. Nice building and atmosphere - a woodsy kind of warehouse with the glass display case for the desserts as you enter. Otherwise, they served pretty good food at a little above average price. My calzone was large and pretty fair. Seemed like all of the entrees were $20, even the pastas, which were... More

$10 desserts the best thing they have. And I don't mean they have desserts that can get to be $10, I mean there are all $10 except for the crème brullee. Big delicious desserts! Food is so-so and overpriced. Lots of pizza if you don't like entrees. Wine selection not bad, glasses are generous. Avoid going in summer unless you... More

Based on reviews, I had better expectations. The service was good and the food average. My pasta dish wasn't the best in my opinion.

Great ambience, business meal with colleagues. Very busy, great atmosphere, well looked after. Food very good, fish dishes excellent. I'm not in the area very often as I'm from The UK but I would definitely eat there again. Nice experience

We enjoyed a nice lunch sharing a Rueben and large salad. Both were delicious and nicely presented. We were seated inside and did not realize there was a nice deck outside for seating. When we noticed it we asked to be moved. It would have been nice for the hostess to give us the choice. Service was spotty. It took... More

This large, casual restaurant aims to please, has an attentive staff and a full Bar (great Scotch) and nice Wine & Beer selections to start the evening. Starters: Grilled Asparagus w/Goat Cheese & Hazel Nuts is wonderful. Classic Caesar Salad, initially needing extra parmesan cheese & dressing then proved rich & flavorful and you can't go wrong with the Spinach... More

we came in with 4 children under 5. Service was wonderful for those little ones- food was not amazing but very good. loved the atmosphere- would recommend to anyone. Particular attention to go box for dessert- loved attention to detail. shows that someone-server-manager,whomever-is in touch with customer.

Food and service outstanding. Meat or fish or veggies, it's all good. Waitress suggestions were spot on. I went with a local who is a real foodie and it's on his short list for downtown Corvallis. Very locavore as are lots of places in Corvallis. Excellent local brews.

Within a couple of hundred yards there are three great restaurants in Corvallis, Big River, De Alma and Aqua. Big River is one of the best restaurants I have been to and I always enjoy a visit there. The steaks are great, the beers are good and the ambiance is always upbeat. A bit less formal than De Alma but... More

Nice place for lunch, booths allow some privacy, enjoyed the good selection, particularly the gluten free choices. Service is efficient and friendly. Food is fresh, sizes are just right. Desserts look delicious.
