Always enjoy lunch here when in Seattle. Great view of Lake Union's harbor including plenty of sea plane action. Usually enjoy any entree, but disappointed with the salmon rigatoni I ordered yesterday. Pasta was hard and sauce very sub par. Also, no corn chowder on menu? Hope that's just temporary. One poor food experience won't stop me coming back until... More

Happy Hour 3-6:30 then again 9 to close. Try the lemon drop martini, fresh squeezed lemon, a whole one, delightful. The bruschetta was our first choice, could not eat it because of garlic overload. But the mushroom flatbed was wonderful and the burger grilled to perfection. Happy about in the bar was lovely, watched the crew teams practice. Heavenly

We were treated very well and allowed to move to a table closer to the window as soon as it became available. The food was very good. When there was a slight problem with the bill it was taken care of without any problem. Would go back again.

What a difference a month makes. The general manager wrote us that they were working on the issues & would we please give them another chance so we did. We had a wonderful dinner, steak & lobster, steelhead. The chef came to check that everything was to our satisfaction as did the manager when we had finished. The service was... More

We arrived at 5 PM on a Friday evening. There were 4 people in our party and we were celebrating my hubby's birthday. We used a coupon that we received in the mail, so each of us had $10.00 off their king crab legs meal. My husband was given a complementary dessert for his birthday. We had excellent service from...

Went about 11 am for a snack. Asked for calamari and was told they just received some fresh about an hour before we got there. So the server was great and it was the best ever, most perfect cooked and tender calamari I ever had. That was the only thing we ate but I would bet the rest of the... More

Came here for a 10 pm, reservation on the 4th of July. Great View of the fireworks which started at 10:20 pm. I ordered the Trio which had salmon, and 2 kinds of shrimp. It was delicious one of the best salmon steaks I've ever had.

We were served our dinner before we got the drinks we ordered upon arrival. It took 40 minutes to get those drinks. The explanation was that the 3 bartenders 'were really slammed'. Food & drinks were luke warm at best. 30 minutes after that we finally asked a busperson to find our waiter. We expressed dissatisfaction about the service to... More

We went for happy hour and it was GREAT. They have reasonable drink prices and great food selection at various prices ($3, $5, $7, and $9). Loved the cheeseburgers and fries for $5. We liked it so much we went back the next night.

We also had high expectations. It was a Sunday, and not busy, so no excuse for Terrible Service. Took over 10 minutes for waiter to even acknowledge us, and another 5-10 for him to return to take drink orders, and he offered to take food orders then since our menus were closed. Water wasn't offered until after he returned again... More
