“Great Entrees, Obscene Desserts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

We took my mother here for Mother's Day. Mom and I split the $34 alder planked salmon with leeks. My husband had the Seafood Fettucini. Both were lovely, with the salmon as the star of the show. My main comment today regards the desserts. I ordered cheesecake, my mother ordered blackberry cobbler, and hubby ordered the melted chocolate cake. All three desserts were FAR LARGER than necessary. As a longtime pastry chef (ten years), it's an insult to receive a dessert presented with the heavy-handed ness that we were served. Slabs of ice cream accompanied the cake and cobbler, and my cheesecake could have easily fed dessert to at least three people. A dessert should be, at the most, four or five bites, of the most supreme loveliness available to the restaurant. Dessert is the last and best presentation for a restaurant; why did Anthony's screw it up?

“Busy place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

While the food is OK it is a bit pricy. Drinks are pricy as well. We usually end up sitting in the bar waiting for a table and then just eat there while booths go vacant. But it does have a nice view

“Excellent food, service, and views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Have brought several clients here for business while I'm in town after being brought here myself by a business associate. Food is always top notch, the views are amazing and the service is excellent. Besides great seafood, they also prepare asparagus in a way that I actually enjoy the taste

“What happened to the prices???”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

When we lived in Everett, WA, Anthony's was an affordable place with awesome food and we ate there at least once a week. Now living here in Olympia,we recently met up with relatives who were passing through town, and decided to have drinks and appetizers. We would have stayed for dinner, but the prices have really jumped, and were out of our price range. The food was good, and we were able to take advantage of a happy hour hamburger for $5, and a glass of wine for $6.
This is a nice place for a special evening like a birthday or some other celebration, but the cost of dinner would be prohibitive (for us) from making this a weekly Friday night outing. The seafood is excellent and so is the wine. You wont be disappointed with your meal, but expect to pay in the upper ranges of prices in the Olympia area. Also, this is not a kid-friendly place to eat (aside from the prices) as the atmosphere is quiet and business like.
