We had dinner here to celebrate our anniversary. Our window table provided a view out across the water until the light faded. The food was well prepared and very tasty, especially the Prime Rib.

Everything on the menu was Absurdly over priced. 18 bucks for 6 shrimp ?? Dinner for three was 250. Scallops were overcooked and over breaded. Jambalaya was bland. Service was spacey pushing refills hard but disappearing when needed. The carpets are in rough shape, the...More

Great food and views. We had scallops and they were delicious. Wait staff was very good. The view from our table was one of the best we had in California, watching sailboats going in and out of the harbor. I would return if we went...More

The atmosphere is upscale and relaxed. Think business casual. The food is good but not stellar. Service and the view are fabulous. I like taking visitors from the Midwest here. They like the food and are always wowed by the place.

This place has great views of Oakland Inner Harbor Channel (between Oakland and Alameda). Check out the view from the window! The combo calamari and artichoke fritti was served with cocktail sauce and a mustard sauce. It was tossed in a garlic parsley seasoning. Very...More
