When you first walk into the restaurant it's not that impressive, but as you go farther into the dining area the lighting shaped into jellyfish, and schools of fish is beautiful. The tables are simple with white paper as the tablecloth. We just walked in and were given a great table for four in the corner with beautiful views. Our waiter was nice and helpful. She told us about the specials and gave some recommendations for items were asked about on the menu. We all ordered something different and the food was excellent. The house salad was large and fresh and the cream of broccoli soup was very good. If you have your heart set on clam chowder you won't be able to order it. They cannot serve it because of an agreement with the restaurant downstairs. It wasn't a deal breaker for us. You can get clam chowder anywhere in Morro Bay. We ordered a bottle of wine which was promptly brought out in an ice bucket and our waiter offered a taste before pouring. During our meal, the chef came out to check on us and see if we liked the food. She genuinely cared about our opinions and our dining experience.
What could make this restaurant great: Put bread and butter on the table (you can order bread at a cost) or breadsticks. People expect this and it gives everyone something to nibble on while reading the menu. Use cloth napkins instead of paper-not that big of a deal but nicer. The timing in the kitchen needs improvement. I ordered the halibut on a bed of linguini and my husband ordered the salmon with linguini. The fish was warm but the linguini was cold. Just an adjustment of timing the food when plated would fix this. People expect hot food when it arrives at their table. Prices are very reasonable and the presentation is impressive. There is a great patio which is still a work in progress. Be sure to add this restaurant to your list when your visiting the area.
