The food was delicious and the service was great. I had the steelhead trout which was delicious. On the downside, we found that the restaurant is rather small and the decor was underwhelming.

Came here for a glass of wine and ended up eating some oysters as well. Our server Braydon (I think) was really great. He knew the whole wine list and recommended a couple of incredible glasses.
