We were hoping for more from our dinner at this sort of new place in Cannon Beach (they had a fire and were closed for awhile). My husband had the flat iron steak and I had the pasta special -- spaghetti in an olive oil and herb sauce with scallops and red pepper flakes.
The steak was a good solid steak but it didn't have any additional seasonings or anything that made it taste any different from what we grill at home. I ordered the pasta special due to the waiter's description of scallops with red pepper flakes. However, my plate arrived without any signs of the flakes so I asked for some and mixed them in myself. A special missing one of the touted ingredient? That was really surprising. And without those red pepper flakes, the dish was sort of boring.
The service was friendly, the ambiance was warm and cozy and softly lit, and it felt like a place for both locals and visitors. I just wish the food was more interesting and flavorful.
