The wine selection was almost too overwhelming but I loved the one I picked. The service was attentive without being overbearing (and no grief over... More

Went here for my 5th year wedding anniversary with my husband and we really enjoyed it. It was a gorgeous summer evening and we got to sit out on the patio and it was absolutely lovely. I had the strip loin and my husband had the burger. Both were fabulous. From prior reviews it seems that they were known for... More

We came in to town kind of late and were directed to this restaurant. They were almost completely full except for a table in the bar area but we had our two teenage grandchildren with us. The manager suggested four of us use that table and seated the grandchildren nearby at the only other empty seating. Besides the wonderful service,... More

This place reminded me of a restaurant that would be in napa valley. Really nice menu, amazing drinks, great service. Somehow this place has a sophisticated yet relaxed vibe. Loved it.

Nice place emphasizing local seafood and a comprehensive wine list. Friendly, professional service, an attractive interior (cozy on a chilly January evening), and an interesting menu. A nice step up from several of the rather generic alternatives in Olympia.

We made reservations through Open Table and the four of us arrived close to 7 p.m. The dining room has changed since we were there last, with a view now of the kitchen area. We ordered drinks and caught up. We ordered the Thai crab cakes for an appetizer. They were wonderfully prepared and tasted great! For dinner, the ladies... More
