My husband and I had a lovely evening dining here for our 30th wedding anniversary. The receptionist & waitress were both very solicitous & attentive to our needs. We ordered two excellent entrees, which included Seafood Paella & the Alaskan King Salmon. For dessert we had the best Creme Brulee ever!

Had dinner with a group of friends here last weekend, and it was an excellent experience from start to finish! Great, easy-to-find location one block up from the waterfront with plenty of free parking. Lovely ambience - there is a large wine bar area, and a separate dining room where we were seated. Service was wonderful, and everyone had a... More

Great all year long, but it is so cozy on a rainy evening, interior is soft lighting and great comfort food. The manager Rhonda, is a gem. Knows the wine list well and will always recommend a winner.

My husband ordered the tenderloin, he said it was delicious. My daughters and I ordered a salad and an appetizer instead of a meal. Two of us had the stuffed poblano peppers which comes with rice and is a meal sized serving - excellent and incredibly delicious! One of us had the cheese platter. The salads were also very good....

Great menu selections. They offer a large menu, small plates and daily specials. During our visit we sampled the butternut squash ravioli in browned butter, oyster stew, French onion soup, câpres salad, duck breast and rabbit. All dishes were wonderful. Fun sampling new wines with their wine flights and exceptional Brandy Alexander. Enjoyable evening spent visiting with some of the... More

This is a quirky restaurant with very good food and service. I had the cioppino and my wife had the halibut. The cioppino was tasty but the portion was rather small. The halibut was good but a just a little overcooked. For dessert, we split the Kahlua cake. It was delicious! We would probably go back to this restaurant!

We walked by this restaurant so many times when we have gone to Port Townsend and finally went there. I am so sorry I did not go in before. It looks expensive from the outside and very high brow but it is so wonderful and accessible. There are so many wonderful items on the menu that anyone can find something... More

Our group of 4 felt very fortunate to have come up this restaurant around 8:30 p.m., after a long day of viewing films at the Port Townsend Film Festival, The place was quite busy, with all the film fest folks in town. Without a reservation, we were able to sit at a table in the bar area. The staff really... More

My wife and I stopped in without a reservation but we were able to sit at the bar. Our server recommended the Hedges Bordeaux blend wine from WA and we enjoyed it with local mussels and an excellent cheese plate. Staff was very friendly and helped with the recommendations.
