We went for our 25th anniversary, very disappointing. The service was slow, the restaurant was very empty yet took forever to get bread. My grilled shrimp was VERY salty my husband's fish and chips were cold. Very pricey for an adequate meal. We were given a free dessert which was nice but the decaf coffee I ordered didn't arrive until... More

Went for Valentine's Day with my husband. Terrific menu selections, what each of us had was wonderful! Service was very good, especially since the place was very busy on that special night. Of course, the visit was a bit pricey but well worth it for a special occasion.

we stopped in for drinks before heading to dinner elsewhere. the cocktails were so perfectly mixed, without the pretension that many of the "craft" bartenders in seattle seem to have. not to mention, the bartender has one of the most infectious laughs we've ever heard. atmosphere was perfect. this was absolutely great for what we needed.

The food was way overpriced and not very good at all. Matter of fact my son threw up his dinner just outside the door. He had chicken parmesan. It was that bad!

No reservations for Saturday at 6 pm. No valet parking make sure you get a yellow ticket for discounted parking $3.25 instead fof $10 or more! We had to sit at the last booth. Great view but the waiters shout CORNER all the time and that is very anoying. How about a small mirror? The starter and soup was very... More

Get a table on the patio. The weather was perfect and the happy hour was one of the best I have ever been to. The food was fresh and the staff was on top of it even though it was very busy!

People dock their boats right beside the building and come up to the restaurant to eat. The food is great and it's a full view of the lake from the dining room.

I don't know how they make mashed potatoes and green beans taste so good! It must have been the butter sauce served with it. I had the salmon. It was all gluten free and very tasty. A beautiful sunny day watching planes come and go and people on paddle boards. Except for the fact that you have to drive downtown... More
