First the Hot. I had their salmon entree and was one of the best I have ever had. Cooked perfectly. We also had their mussels as a starter and pretty good as well. The cold: My wife had their pork entree and it was overcooked and the rest of her plate was unremarkable. The thing that bothered me the most... More

This exquisite lake front restaurant serves up perfectly prepared eclectic dishes with a surprisingly wonderful focus on the main ingredients. The balance in flavor is sublimely achieved by utilzing a minimalistic approach to saucing and coating. The salmon was 5 star with a perfectly crisp skin, delicate seasoning and a moisture usually only achieved through souvite preparation though this was... More

The setting is lovely, but I think we hit a bad (Saturday) night. Service was slow and they appeared to be short-staffed, though willing enough. And then there was the food. I don't know if the main cook may have been absent, but it was quite disappointing. It seemed like 'nouvelle' cuisine that just didn't taste like much (other than... More

This was a nice place with a good window view of the lake. The service was excellent and the cocktails, delicious. My lobster was overcooked, though, and unpleasant -- I should probably have sent it back, but I was pretty dang hungry. It was our anniversary, and our waiter treated us to dessert on the house. I truly appreciated that... More

Stopped by for wine, dessert, & coffee on the way home. Service was excellent. The bar tender (used to work at Trellis) was our waiter and he knowledgeable about the dessert as well as the wines. Would go back to try their happy hour (& dinner).

A nice restaurant...super views of Lake Washington. A casual place, good food, above average but not a gourmet. Fun place to have a bottle of wine and take in the sunset.

The most important thing about the restaurant is the view. It is incredible. And you pay for it (I thought the prices were a bit high then NYC for comparable food). But the service was nice. and the food was delicious
