We ate here often in June 2013 on on two-week stay in Depoe. Returning for a ten-day stay in June 2014, I was most looking forward to return visits. We dined here three times during our ten-day stay and enjoyed each stay. First off, it's a relatively small restaurant, so reservations are highly recommended. We sometimes had a short wait for our reserved table, but that's understandable and acceptable. The views are world class from practically any table, but best, of course, from window tables. About half the tables are on windows. It's a good idea to bring your sunglasses because on a bright day, the restaurant is very bright. Strangely, they have no blinds of any kind to diffuse the bright sunlight. That may bother some.
The food is wonderful and the portions are ample. I recommend sharing (between two) a half order of sea bread - toasted baguette with smoked salmon, cream cheese, havarti, baby shrimp, and onion - delicious. If you share a full order, you will have trouble finishing your main course. We usually each get a cup of chowder - they have several kinds of which I love the clam and my wide likes the smoked salmon. All the entrees are grand. My favorites by far are the Ciappino and the Oven-Broiled Halibut. But do not ignore the specials as they can be wonderful. The have some innovative cocktails. I especially like the Cucumber Gin Gimlet which is made up of cucumber infused gin, lime juice, cucumber juice, elderflower liqueur, and lavender bitters. As a gimlet fan, I was doubtful of the combinations, but it is delicious. The Moscow Mule is also very enjoyable, especially as a summer cooler. The wine list is more than adequate. We usually go with glasses of whatever wine they are featuring at the time. Service is professional and timely. They have desserts, but we never have room.
