“Excellent food and breathtaking views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

This restaurant surprised me by providing some of the best views on the Oregon coast. Two in my party ordered shrimp and the third ordered coconut shrimp. We all agreed that it was fresh and delicious. The service was average and when we needed another napkin, we waited so long that we had to take one off of an empty table. This appeared to be a spot that the locals frequent and based upon the food, I can see why.

“Excellent food, average service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

The food was great, portions ample, but the service a bit slow and inattentive. The view and food made up for it though, and we ate here two nights in a row. The menu selection was excellent: salads, soups, appetizers, and main courses all were very good.

“Amazing food and breathtaking view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

We were looking for a place to have a nice seafood meal and saw many cars in the parking lot and that was how we selected Tidal Raves. Not having a reservation (it didn't even occur to us we would need reservations) there would be a 20 minute wait. I have patience to wait, but I wasn't sure how my mother and sisters would feel, but once we took a look at the menu we knew this was the place. We all raved about the Seahawk Bread appetizer! Our entree's were the Flatiron Steak, Dungeness crab casserole, Pasta Rave and Herb Crusted Pacific Snapper. We were all in heaven. Add a single cocktail and the yummy bread and we were too full to even attempt to share a dessert. How we wish we could have managed a dessert! The dessert menu sounded amazing and if it was as good as the meal, then Wow. Though we didn't get a window seat you still have a great view of the ocean and wave-carved sandstone cliffs. We will be back!

“Rave review of "Tidal Raves".”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

The ocean view is amazing. The food is awesome. Expert servers. Make reservations in advance so you can get one of the tables next to the windows. This restaurant can get very busy.

“Amazing Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Our party of four had a delicious lunch here today. Their prices are above average, but the quality easily justifies them.
Our server, Jen, was courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. The pan fried oysters appetizer was perfectly prepared and delicious. My wife had the mahi-mahi tacos and she judged them perfect. My garlic sautéed platter included oysters, shrimp and mahi-mahi in a garlic butter sauce. Very flavorful. Our friends had nothing but praise for the crab cakes and razor clams. Everything was fresh and perfectly prepared. I wish I had had room for the key lime pie. Their wine list is well selected and long enough for anyone. One of the best lunches I've ever had. Oh, and request a window seat for the whale watching. We spotted two.
