“Nice little restaurant in Sequim”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We ate here twice on a recent stay in Sequim. Service and food were excellent. Pretty good wine list for a little restaurant. Reservations, on the weekend, recommended.

“Best meal of our Washington State trip”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

This small and unassuming restaurant gave us our biggest culinary surprise. We where there for "Tapas Tuesday" so I went for two tapas - Clams & chorizo, poached duck egg over crab meat. Pretty unusual and very tasty. My wife had planked salmon with roasted veggies and a salad. Salmon was beyond fresh, waitress said it was caught the day before. Local draft beer for me and a generous glass of wine for my wife.I am not a light eater, but there was no room for dessert. I was surprised how filling the tapas were. Service was very friendly. Not expecting a restaurant that rivaled ones in Seattle and Portland to be in Sequim.

This restaurant offers a varied menu with excellent quality and emphasis on local produce. It is very popular so reserve as much in advance as possible.

“Great little place!!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

This was suggested by our hosts at redcabooosegetaway.com. You do need to call ahead for reservations. The food is excellent. My husband discovered Finn River Cider. Expensive, but worth every sip. The restaurant focuses on organic, local and fresh seafood. Excellent service.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We dined here on a Saturday night. Made reservations earlier in the week as it was recommended on their website. Good thing as this place was a home which was converted into a restaurant so it is a little on the small side when the weather isn't conducive to sitting outside. My husband had the planked fish and he is a fussy eater and he said it was the best fish he had in quite a while. I had the steak frite and it was delicious. Portions were adequate for eating rich food. Any bigger I would have left rolling out of there. We had ordered a bottle of wine which happened to be from the local winery Olympic Cellers. All in all it was a terrific meal and service was great. We had a very pleasant experience. Of note, they are not open on Sundays.
