I don't normally call a nice dinner an 'event' however, from the hostess, to the two bartenders, the waitress and of course our outstanding ahi tuna and poisson st jacques, what an exceptional event it was! On top of that they had a 3 man group playing flamenco type music that set the Friday nite tone for everyone. Obviously I... More

We spent one night in Astoria and lucked out when we stumbled on this gem of a restaurant. The place was hopping on a Wednesday night (do make a reservation if you plan to dine between 6:00 and 8:00) and as we were "walk-ins" we had to wait about 45 minutes before they were able to squeeze us in. But... More

The clam and mussel chowder is s must. The fisherman sandwich (open faced salmon sandwich with balsamic, mustard, and olive tapenade) is just lip smacking good. The service was attentive and very pleasant. Sweetie and Rascal Pants

What a fantastic view for lunch. We really enjoyed the meal also - fish and chips and a salad. It wasn't warm enough to sit outdoors but they have a great deck.

We ate lunch here the day we visited Astoria. The waiter suggested the fish tacos. They were very tasty . I would definitely recommend them.

Downstairs is just right for a group or a family with children. The tables are bare. Upstairs is more romantic for couples and the tables are linen-covered. The menu and food are the same both places. Our dinner was excellent, and our server was very friendly, helpful and, when we asked, she directed us to other fine places to eat... More

We had lunch here twice recently and really enjoyed the setting, service and food. The staff were flexible and accommodating. The fish tacos are a must eat there.

After a morning's drive, a lunch of fried oysters perfectly prepared and served with a smile hit the spot. We had a pretty view of the shoreline.

The menu here is varied and the view of the Columbia River breath taking - you can sit outside just a short hop from the Iconic Astoria-Megler Bridge that connects Oregon to Washington State. The Restaurant is modern inside with lots of California-like touches - high ceilings, art on the walls, lots of windows that let the light pour in.... More
