Reservations are highly recommended for this amazing restaurant & bar. They provide valet service, who unfortunately changed a setting on my car that led to a dead batter. The food was amazing, and the chef actually accommodated a request for an item they had stopped serving once happy hour had passed. Seating is first come first serve in the bar, and the hostess station had actually sat us at a table while we waited for availability. We stayed in the bar, as the view was amazing....towards the end of the evening they started sending people in to see what was available. This led to a family of four seating themselves at the edge of our table and basically hinting that we were not moving fast enough for their liking. That's enough to put me over the edge.

Reservations make it so much easier! The bar area is open seating on a first come first served basis but does get noisy. We lucked out and got a couch area near the bar which was great - views of the water and very comfortable - until near the end of our meal. That was when a family started standing by our seats and staring at us, waiting for us to leave. That truly put a damper on the evening.

They also make a good Banana Foster. Right on the water. With limited view depending on where you sit.

Pretty fun place with a great view. It gets pretty crowded on the weekends but it's still one of the better places to go in town for drinks. I have never eaten here, although given the quality of the establishment I imagine the food would be pretty decent. The interior is pretty sweet, lots of windows and a great view looking over balboa island and the surrounding area. They have a valet out front which is nice at times as parking can sometimes be an issue on the weekends.

Visited 3 Thirty 3 with a friend, and it was a great experience. Service was great since we first walked in through the door. The hostess was very attentive and got us a table fairly quick. The menu had multiple items that looked delicious, but I went for steak and boy was it worth it. Most of the dishes are in the $20-30 range, and it is worth every cent. I would definitely recommend it do anyone looking for a nice dinner, with a nice environment.
