“Location and great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

5 minutes walk from my hotel, lots of free parking and a great view of the Bay and SFO Airport. Ok so how was the food &service? The place was full to bursting on a Wednesday night so that was a good indicator. We had booked a table for 10 otherwise we would not have got in and I'm pleased that we did because the appetizers and food was excellent. I enjoyed the calamari starters and the beef teriyaki. My meal was T-bone steak cooked to perfection medium rare with Yukon potato and asparagus on the side. Delicious. As was the lemon sorbet. My only issue was the portion size : in a word, huge. Non-American diners might want to share a plate or try one of the mixed platters on the menu. Service was prompt and I did not find the restaurant overly noisy even though it is popular.

“Enticing view, Appentizing Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

One of our favorites. I come here often for Happy Hour: excellent service and wide range of choices for appetizers and dishes. You can't beat the view of the bay and the airplanes as they make their approach to SFO. I also bring my own wine; corkage is pretty reasonable - was $ 13, now $ 15. Their sliders are very good; crab dip and sampler. At lunch time, they also have specials or good lunch combinations.

“Attractive decor & Great view of Bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Ample parking. Stopped in for lunch and had a shrimp & crab Louie with 1000 island dressing on the side. Only two prawns and the crab had no lump pieces --- a little bit of a letdown given the price. Devilled egg was a bit spicy with the paprika. Rosemary bread was tasty. Service was prompt and pleasant. I would not order this item again at this restaurant, but I will definitely return.

“YUM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

If your looking for a restaurant with great food and a wonderful view, this is the place. The food as far as I'm concerned its out of this world. Steaks are great and the prime rib is to die for. Melt in your mouth perfection to say the least. This restaurant also has a bar that has just about every liquor you can think of.
