Service with a smile, excellent recommendations, clean and sheek. The oyster menu is overwhelming but in the best way an oyster menu can be! Must stop in to this gem on the water!

Location is nice, on the waterfront. The restaurant was very cold, a cold breeze coming through, I was frozen. Our waitress was very snotty and stuck up. We only ordered appetizers, drinks and desserts and her attitude was very rude that we didn't order an entree. It was almost 10pm and we honestly can't eat that much that late. That... More

The food here was outstanding, and we loved both the variety of oysters and the menu items we ordered. During Seattle's restaurant week, three courses for $32 made this place unbeatable. Factor into your visit here the popularity, so we recommend reservations. The prawn risotto was delicious, as was the salmon Rockefeller. Even the desserts were great. The service was... More

We went to this restaurant while visiting the city for my cousins wedding. We did the Argosy cruise (which was really good and informative) and then headed here for lunch. We were a very large party so they put us in a semi private room which was nice. My dad and hubs got some oysters which they said they enjoyed... More

We visited here as a large group attending a convention in town. It's a nice spot with excellent food but we were disappointed by the lack of friendliness by the hostess. Even with a reservation our table wasn't ready for at least a 1/2 hr after the reservation time and they didn't give us an option to wait at the... More

I come here every time when I visit Seattle. While this is not a perfect place for everyone, it's a reliable spot where you can go for specific things: PRO: Nice oyster bar, revolving selection. Good selection of beers on tap. Wild salmon (3 options x 3 cooking methods) is fantastic. Cioppino great BUT: it features bacon (!). Outside seating... More

Very nice, lovely restaurant. Great service. No accompaniments to the meal other than what is listed in the dish description, for example, no bread or salad. The salmon was prepared to perfection, and the asparagus with it was excellent. Great desserts; the apple crisp was absolutely delicious. Very nice wine list.

Thank Brenda N
