A friend from home recommended this place. We stopped by to make reservations and the choices were 5pm or very late. There was a crowd waiting before 5pm--many were locals--always a good sign. We had a lovely and memorable meal.

This quaint restaurant has a great seafood menu. We enjoyed the Locally sourced Northern California King Salmon and the delicious Halibut. We love the GeoCrono clock behind the bar! Great food, worth the cost. Reservations suggested. Enjoy!

I thought we saw a large party of at least 7 when we were there. I would think they could put a couple of tables together

We did not see any children in the restaurant when we visited. I would recommend a call to the restaurant to determine if there is a children's menu. This restaurant would not be my choice when dining with children.
