“wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Ate their twice in a week, it was so good. The wait staff were very friendly and helpful on both visits. The food was super good, especially the skirt steak and the truffle frites. Everyone enjoyed their food both times. Really nice atmosphere, and nice view.

“yummy real food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This place is good: atmosphere and patio, original cocktails, and tasty dishes (my friend said that burger was great). The service was a little irregular, with a missed dish, but very friendly and accommodating. It's the kind of place where you could stay all evening and drink good martinis after dinner if you wanted.

“Great food and location, reasonably priced.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

The service was decent but the food was much better than that. Great location, lovely views. Spent about $30 for lunch for two (without alcohol).

“Great Fish Prep!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Made a reservation for "outside". Got there and was told no res are made for outside. Later that evening saw 2 tables with placards reserved-outside. No worries, we dined at a nice table inside/outside. Great waitress- Jo. She was knowledgeable about the food/prep/beer selection. Checked back but not intrusive. The restaurant was still rocking at 9:30. Make a reservation for a Sat evening. The chef really knows how to prepare fish,very moist and excellent portion size. Will return.

“Very good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

I really enjoyed my dish (the shrimp tacos) and the atmosphere was very nice with people walking around the local shops and being close to the channel. Our waitress was helpful and provided helpful recommendations.
