First off, the setting is great for a romantic sunset dinner. That being said, the menu prices are way out of line for the area, the selection, the presentation and the quality of preparation. The "kobe" beef is OK, one of our steaks was overcooked and the flavor just isn't there. Our server was great, along with the wine, food is just so so, especially given the top shelf prices. $230 for two diners, one bottle of wine with one appetizer, two entrées and one dessert, including tip.

My husband and I decided to check this place out for dinner while exploring Old Mission. While the service was amazing and the food was delicious, the portion sizes were small and WAY overpriced. We were looking for a nice, sit down dinner but weren't expecting sticker shock when we got the bill. The views of the bay are absolutely beautiful! If you don't mind shelling out a nice penny, then this is for you.

When we walked in the door, the fishy smell was terrible. We ordered lobster and when it came it had such a smell we sent it back. Filet Mignon was only average. Side dishes nothing to rave about and it was sooooo expensive. We were disappointed and will never go back.
