We looked this place up online while searching for restaurants near Point Reyes. We couldn't make reservations, because we didn't know what time we'd be done hiking, but we chanced it anyway. This is a place 30 minutes up Hwy 1 north from Point Reyes. They have valet only - but very efficient. There was 1 1/2 hour wait for a table without reservations on a Saturday, but they suggested we order dinner from the bar, which we did, and it was just fine - we still felt welcome (not like we committed a crime for not making reservations). It was very busy, VERY nice atmosphere right on Tamales Bay with a pier out back to walk on after dinner. They also have cottages for rent. We had appetizer crab mac n cheese - unbelievable - could have been a meal! Ordered halibut and the salmon specials for that night - both tasted out of this world! Perfect amount of food, excellent presentation. I also had an irish coffee- delicious! Friendly and fast service, but no one bustles you - prices are what you would expect, expensive, but not overpriced. This is definitely a romantic, or family, or couple, or celebration spot - they fit it all. We wore our hiking clothes (long pants, long shirts) and fit in fine.
