WCYC is consistently one of our favorite restaurants in Walnut Creek based on their fresh seafood, creative cocktails, friendly service and lively atmosphere. WCYC offers a fresh daily menu that features different seafood options that are simply prepared (grilled, seared, etc.), along with a side. My husband and I almost always start with one of their outstanding cocktails, along with... More

Last week we went for the annual Lobster event for Loyalty Card holders. Priced at $20.17 it was wonderful. Frankly, even tho' we live close by we rarely go there. In the past we have found the restaurant to be over priced and over crowded - no reflection on the food. However, at lunch time it is so much more... More

Good food and good service. The halibut was perfectly cooked. I really enjoyed the Brussel sprouts and the dipping sauce. Great bar with super knowledgeable bartenders. A wonderful Walnut Creek tradition.

I've eaten here for lunch and dinner. The service is very good. renowned for quality cocktails and the freshest seafood. The grilled fish tacos are the bomb! also have specials that have always impressed; soups, pasta with shellfish, etc. Average wine list, but how many Chardonnays/Pinot Grigio choices do you really need?

I have been here many times and it is consistently good. Seafood is one of those things that is very difficult and they do it well. Good place for a date or a special occasion.

The dining area is a large rectangle with a great bar at one end and a great oyster bar at the other. Everything offered is very fresh, top quality, and is wonderfully prepared and presented. Service is impressive - could not be much better. The place is very popular, normally very crowded and noisy, and reservations are a MUST. If... More

On a busy Friday before Christmas my husband and I had lunch with some friends. I ordered the special which was a salad, fish and chips, and a glass of white wine. The salad was outstanding with roasted beats, crispy onion and goat cheese. While the fish and chips were fairly standard it was nicely arranged on the plate. The... More
