Lucky to sneak a group of 11 in just before the dinner rush. Amazing views of the coast and even got to watch the fog roll in near the end. Good vibe and creative drinks. Must get the Seahawk Bread - so good! Enjoyed by...all.More

We dined here on a late September evening. Our meal started well - I had a bowl of spinach oyster bisque and my husband had a house salad. Both excellent. I ordered a half crab salad as my entree. It included lots of crab but...several very large (dime size) pieces of shell. Mixing whole Romaine leaves with other greens meant that every bite required I use a knife. My husband had scallops as his entree. He said they were fine but nothing special. Service was adequate. The view is gorgeous as Tidal Raves sits right on the ocean.More

I first reviewed Tidal Raves about 8 years ago and I was afraid on my return they may have diminished in quality... NO, NOPE, NADA. STILL GREAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. Still great food, still great service, just still great. One of my top three...restaurants in WORLD! Build into your schedule that you may have to wait 30 or 40 minutes for a table. I showed up early and the rest of my party 35 minutes later..... perfect timing. We had a great meal. I read another review that said the host was rude..... not so. They are dealing with a whole bunch of people and curt for efficiency sake. I got on the list then asked for a glass of wine while I waited outside. About three minutes later the host brought me my wine when he got a few seconds. WORTH THE WAIT.More

I have been in this restaurant a few times and normally it has been excellent. This last time, almost everything was great except the front desk personnel. They were rude. It seems like they don’t know how to handle busy days. I suggest customer service...training.More

I took a local person who had never had the Tidal Raves experience. TIDAL RAVES IS A TOTAL EXPERIENCE. Service was excellent. We both had the swordfish/crab special and we both cleaned our plates. Service was the best. VIEW IS A TOTAL EXPERIENCE.

My husband and I had a delicious dinner here. We had grilled rock fish in a fabulous sauce with roasted brussel sprouts. The sauce was so good I could have eaten it with a spoon. We eat here every time we're in the area. They...don't take reservations but if you call them they will put you on a waiting list.More

Four years ago we passed through Depoe Bay and ate here. This year, on a return, we are here again. Menu, service and food were all excellent. But the real star is the view location.

Well situated near the Depot Bay 'seawall' you can watch for whales at any table. Excellent, first quality often locally sourced food. Choices for those who don't eat seafood and the best wine and cocktail list on the coast. Elegant without pretention.

Loved this place! Great view of the bay and wonderful food including fish specials and an amazing wine list from Oregon. Ask for Chris the waiter. He's so knowledgeable about Oregon wine and the area. An amazing server. We came back two straight nights. A...tip: Dinner waits can run into the hours, so go for dinner around 4pm to avoid the crowds and get a great table with an ocean view.More

Food was good - but expensive. The view was stunning - watched whales while we ate our lunch. Steak was good. Crab Mac and cheese was very good.

Was given the place as a recommendation and it didn’t disappoint. Stopped in for lunch without a reservation and was greeted with a wonderful welcome and a “give me 5 minutes and we’ll get you a table”. Great service, food was wonderful, great views and...we were fortunate enough to get a table by the window. We’ll go back.More

We ate there twice last week. Both times food was outstanding, staff friendly. Weather was overcast or foggy, but still got the ambiance of what a beautiful view would normally be there. Price was reasonable. Will return there when we're back on the Oregon coast....Her salmon was "out of this world" delicious and my filet mignon was superb. A treasure of a find!!More
