Great Happy Hour Spot

While the Happy Hour is not extensive, this certainly seems to be the place to gather after work. My wife and I felt lucky to get a table at 5:00 in the afternoon! Beyond Happy Hour, stay for the dinner, especially the ravioli. It came in a very delicate butter sauce and, with a Caesar salad and... read more

This is not the place for a business dinner. The atmosphere is noisy and dark, presumably so you can't see the food you are being served. Our table ordered a selection of appetizers. My chicken wings were raw and had to be sent back. Since it is difficult to see what you are eating, only in tasting the chicken did... More

I had a nice happy hour drink and nibbles with a colleague here a few weeks ago. As it was happy hour the drinks and food were reasonably priced, but nothing fancy. It seemed like a fairly trendy place but the quality of the food was just about average.

We have tried to come here before with a larger group around 9 pm and have been turned away because the tables were for people purchasing food. There were tables available and we only wanted drinks. So we went elsewhere. We tried again last night with only 4 of us when it was midnight and again the same host wanted... More

I really love other Tom Douglas restaurants and expected to love this one too. It was jam packed when we arrived for our dinner reservation which added to the excitement and anticipation of a great Pacific Northwest meal that Tom Douglas is famous for. Alas, we were seated in a room that had a screaming child at each of the... More

The ambiance is wonderful, the service great and the food divine! Come here to have drinks and eat at the bar or eat a meal in the restaurant - all equally great!

We haven't been to every one of Tom Douglas's places (who has the time, such a long list!) but we've been to many, and this is consistently our favorite. Their take on multicultural influenced comfort food, elevated but yet approachable always hits the spot. We usually end up negotiating over which things on the menu (that we want) we are... More

Interesting variety of food, good portions. Even on a Sunday night at 6 pm, plenty of folks, so a bit hard to visit. Staff pretty good although we had to wait a bit to order.
