The food is delicious! Prices are the high end of reasonable but definitely worth it. They have a side room that is perfect for a group of 12 -30. Attentive servers. Visit during Lakefair and enjoy their street tacos at their food booth.

My wife.and daughter's new favorite restaurant in Olympia. Our server was excellent. The food was outstanding. I recommend the "Chicken Gnocchi". The burger.was cooked exactly as requested and with flavor. The Chocolate Torte was dense and rich, a perfect finish for us to share.

It's Olympia, you can wear whatever you want and probably get away with it. Likely a business casual sort of attire would be good.
