“Understated luxury by the bay”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We had an outstanding dinner with locally caught fish, excellent wines, and gracious service. Our only complaint was that our server became distracted by a large table near the end of our meal. Because of that, we ended up skipping dessert and an after-dinner drink in favor of leaving for a stroll down Cannery Row.

“The C-”
Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

very welcoming greeting from the hostess. still don't know the bartenders name. he was just going through the motions. dropped our check off before we even got our food, so we were closed off before we could even ask for another round. weren't able to splurge here. the service and food did not match the atmosphere and decor. much room for improvement.

“Ok with great views”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Have finished 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts here. Service is very slow so be prepared to wait. Food was ok; not the best I have had. Ceviche was very fishy while the steak was very well done when asked for medium.

We had the same waiter twice and he is not very informed on the offerings of the restaurant. In fact he forgot our salads on one occasion.

The views are spectacular with "otter heaven" right outside the window but prepared to wait a long time both at breakfast and dinner. Price is reasonable for the area.

“Very good food and terrific views, but you pay a hefty price for it.”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Great food, clean and attractive both inside and out. Views of the water from most seats. It is a quite pricey, but unlike most places on Cannery Row I think you are getting what you paid for.
