Local hangout. Food is good to adverage. Some days are better than others. Always has a crowd in the evenings. Make reservations for weekend evenings and nights.

The atmosphere is nice. Food is really good. A little over priced. Wait staff was polite. The view is nothing spectacular.

Came here with my husband and some of his coworkers and had a lovely meal. The appetizers were definitely the star of the meal and are large enough that they could have been our meals. I ordered the fish dinner special and it was good but not spectacular, I felt as if the sauce overpowered the fish and made it... More

Don't judge a book by it's cover. We were invited by my family, with a small child, for dinner. When we walked up, we really weren't sure what to think. From the outside, we had our doubts. The large plain looking building had us seriously questioning our choice. We opened the door and that all changed. White linen table cloths... More

The ambiance here is great- whether dining in their low-lit main dining room or outside on the patio, which looks out onto a small waterway. The crowd ranges from casual diners to people celebrating special events, and I appreciate that you can feel comfortable in jeans here or dress it up. The food is excellent! The Coquille St. Jacques is... More

There are meals where you may... More

We went here for our anniversary dinner! Made reservations and got a window seating. Their shrimp and scallop Victoria is so flavorful and so yummy!! My hubby ordered capellini aspen and every bite had great taste of all the food on the plate.

My husband and I had dinner here recently for date night and loved it. The only downside is how much you spend. The special was around $50, which we didn't expect, but the food was delicious. We recommend the asparagus and artichoke to start with and the main entrees we tried were the filet with lobster and the pan seared... More

As stated by others, excellent menu, service and atmosphere. We had a wonderful evening! Champagne, escargot, fresh tomato salad and entree's of Steak Diane and Snapper with Shrimp and Crab. The steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare and the sauce on the snapper was great. We ended it all with Creme Brûlée. Perfection!

The title of my review says it all. Probably the best food in the Bay Area, in a perfectly charming waterfront building in a great out-of-the-way location with the best service ever, especially if you happen to get one of Sally's tables. Although primarily a seafood restaurant (think fresh---and not necessarily fried) I have lately become enamored of their steak... More
