When you walk in, you immediately "get it." Quiet, wonderful view of Holmes Harbor, great setting, and the best meal we have ever had on Whidbey Island. It was my wife's birthday, we brought a special bottle of wine, and happily paid the $20 corkage fee. Have the calamari, a very different presentation, in a tomato sauce, lightly breaded, basil, garlic, and chunks of heirloom tomatoes. Any larger and it would be a great entry. Had the two specials, silver salmon and the short ribs, both came with a pea/risotto, perfectly done brocolini, snap peas, done to perfection. Service was wonderful, like we owned our table for as long as we wanted. You will plan a return visit to Gordons once you indulge yourself. With one extra glass of wine, and one shared meyer lemon cheesecake, our total bill was $120. This is a real find on Whidbey Island.
