This is a lovely restaurant with delightful bistro feel to it...linen tablecloths. Every dish was delicious. Service was not rushed and server friendly.

We never expected a five star restaurant in the environs of Pacific City but this little restaurant honestly reaches that level. There are mixed reviews here and I suppose they were all earned one way or another. When we first walked through the door we were surprised to see white table cloths, cloth napkins and wine glasses on each table.... More

What a lovely small restaurant with nice atmosphere, superb service, and most of all perfect food. Something for everyone is offered, and the perfect place for a romantic evening or just a night out with friends who want to share great food.

The place was empty when we came, but filled up for lunch. we were first to order and last to get food. the waitress took our order without a pencil, which is probably why we didn't get it first. I got a burger, blue cheese, medium well which gave me indigestion all night. My friends got fried local fish, which... More

If you are looking for tacos, burgers, and nachos, this is not your place. If you are looking for entrees that rival some of Portland's best restaurants, this is the place; the food is fantastic. Plus it has an eight page, extensive wine list. Service was very attentive and the ambiance is perfect for a quiet evening with your spouse.... More

PROBABLY WON'T BE BACK! I have posted very positive reviews in the past, but things have changed!! The last TWO visits have been a major disappointment! The bartender was less than energetic and did not even know how to make the cocktail special that was on the blackboard. As far as food... The pork chop special was a little overlooked,... More

Our experience at this restaurant was totally spoiled by the length of time it took for service and the food was adequate but overpriced.

Our favorite restaurant on the Oregon Coast by a mile. The crab cakes are perfectly moist, made with nutty dungeness crab and no cheap filler, served with a side of greens because any sauce would be a shame to this recipe. The Asian bouillabaisse is phenomenal, each piece of fish cooked perfectly and not, as so often experienced, overdone; a... More

Very few people when we arrived at 6 on a Saturday night. We were not plated with our food until 7:45. Absolutely unacceptable. Asked two different servers what the reason was for the excessive wait. Got two different answers. "We're European style". Having traveled multiple times in Europe, perhaps the waiter should travel there before making an incorrect comparison. Second... More
