Great Food/Great View

This was our first trip to the Oregon Coast and we happened to start a conversation with someone on the beach. They told us, "you have to eat at Tidal Raves in Depot Bay." OK. You know how those things are. You tuck that information in the side pocket of your brain for later reference... maybe... read more

The only good thing about this restaurant were the views. Service was mediocre at best & the quality of food wasn't what we expected for the price we paid. Found the food to be bland. I also found a dead fly in my salad and nothing was done about it, not even from the manager, as I assume the waiter... More

Happened upon Tidal Raves in Depot Bay while attending the Seafood & Wine Festival in Newport Oregon. The view is spectacular, food delicious. The storm watch menufor 2 for the month of February offering was excellent with two wine flights and three courses. The fish is excellent and almost anything on the menu looked wonderful. This is a go to... More

What a fine surprise! Our first trip; we did not know it had just opened following dinning room renovations. No bother; it was in tip top shape. They apparently had not altered the menu and it was, how should I say? Wonderful! Service was attentive, suggestions made were taken and did not disappoint. The cost were surprising modest coming down... More

We drove up on a beautiful Sunday and had an amazing experience. The green curry dish rivaled the awesome view from our table. The dessert was to die for and the French coffee press was exquisite! Our view from the south corner table was great. The staff was friendly and made our visit memorable. We will be back!

The set up guarantees an ocean view to every diner, and the fancy wait staff flourish their pepper grinders and oversized trays like pro's. Really enjoyed the smoked salmon chowder, but found the menu to be a bit lacking on variety. The kind of place where rich people without taste buds go to put capers on things.

This very popular seaside restaurant has pretty consistently good food. The only drawback is the lack of sound- deadening. It can be very noisy. Because of its popularity there can be long waits to be seated.

No reservations, so had to wait 30 minutes until seated. Totally worth it. Had a great view. The food was delicious and the hostess/wait staff were great!

We have been going to Tidal Raves for over twenty years and they never disappoint. We have always had good food and good service. And they now have a small bar area. The wait can be a bit long if you do not have reservations.
