Perfect place to spend time chatting with friends, enjoying lunch and cocktails as you look out at the pier and sea. Enjoyed a bottle of champagne and tacos with the sun shining and gleaming on the Pacific Ocean. Can't beat that!

An upscale dining experience, no question about it. Top tier beverages followed by delectable starters and entrees and even a multi-donut desert. Worth a detour, as Michelin would say.
