The highlight of our dining in Seattle. The restaurant was recommended by our concierge and it did not disappoint. The views were great and the food fabulous. I had the halibut while my husband had the king red crab. Highly recommend!

Went with family and friends to Saturday's Happy Hour 3-6. The bar menu has a huge variety, and the size of salads and the fish and chips was a pleasant surprise. Overall you can't beat the views, and the service was adequate. The dining room...More
