“Great food and view with nice room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Had a great dinner here near the river. And the room was comfortable and affordable. Great outdoor seating overlooking the river and the duck below.

“Service with a flair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

The food is very, very good, but I think what stands out in my mind the most is the graciousness and thoughtfulness of our server .

“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This is absolutely one of the worst restaurants my wife and I have ever eaten. Way overpriced. My wife ordered Eggplant parmesan. When it came, there was no marinara sauce in the dish; yet the menu stated as such. She was too polite to complain. I had a shrimp dish. The shrimp were tough. Had we not been so hungry, both dishes would have ben returned. We were served by two inept servers. Not worth the money. Avoid eating here if possible.

“Tourist Trap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This restaurant is a tourist trap. Given its location as one of the last feeding stations before the southern entrance to Sequoia, that's not surprising. However, that doesn't mean they don't give value while they've got their hand in your pocket...just not great value. Keep your expectations low and you'll be alright. The wines were so-so but the glasses were well and truly filled. The food was good but nothing special. One, at least this one, can't eat five star every day...or even most days. Although we thought this place overpriced, it wasn't egregiously so. The view from the terrace was pleasant and somewhat exotic for a couple from other climes. All in all, despite being mildly fleeced, an enjoyable experience.

“All the ingredients - something missing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

The food was excellent, with good quality meats well cooked. The deck provides a great view and atmosphere. However, the service was poor - inattentive and mistaken-ridden. It was more suitable for a bar than formal (fairly expensive restaurant). Perhaps a little complacent owing to its location.
