Love the food here. Their fries are the best and had a great steak here. The fries have whole gatlic and an herb of some kind. My meals are consistently good here. The only foods I don't like are the asian fusion foods on the happy hour menu. Parking is also a pain but there is free valet parking. There... More

We always sit in the bar/bistro area to enjoy the happy hour pricing. Love coming her for date night, catching up with a gal pal over a glass of wine, for business after hours, and for business lunches. Highly recommend for great food and ambience - service can be a little off in the Bistro, but usually great at the... More

Downtown Tacoma; Elegant, upscale, warm, and welcoming. Sit at the bar, sit at the window, sit in a booth! All spaces are great! the food is excellent, the happy hour HAPPY, and the clientele are just the types you want to know.

More and more I look for an interesting menu. Why spend money going out to eat unless it's special? Our wine was a smooth Malbec. We had caramelized salmon sliders with sweet BBQ jam. I never would have thought of this combination and it was so, so good. We also had grilled cheese with a cup of white bean and... More

First night in Tacoma, leaving Seattle airport and stopped here. Amazing! The food, atmosphere, drinks and service were all impressive. Great crab cakes, scallops and fish. I'm a South Florida native. Seafood is my specialty and they are great.

I've heard so much about this place that I actually hoped to find it, in some way, lacking. But, my experience was nothing short of SPECTACULAR! From start to finish, I was QUITE pleasantly surprised by my dining experience. After reviewing the menu, in detail, I began questioning whether I had chosen the right place to eat. For some reason,... More

It's a nice place. The servers are also very nice and attentive but the kitchen is inconsistent. Order the same thing twice and it's not the same at all. That is important when they command high prices for their food. Nice atmosphere and very clean. Good wine selection and cocktails are correctly made. Some improvement suggested for the price.

We got in late to the Courtyard hotel and first time to Tacoma. Plenty of restaurants in the area and we chose this restaurant because it is literally downstairs on the street corner of the hotel and based on what I had read about it. The food lived up to the reviews. I had the King Salmon and it was... More
