This was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The restaurant features local, organic ingredients and sustainably harvested seafood and only uses meat & poultry that is free-range with no hormones or antibiotics. Artisan wood-fired pizzas are also featured. The menu is also continually revised to feature the bounty of the Olympic Peninsula, with seasonally inspired daily specials. All desserts are made in house. The dessert that we had for dinner (flourless chocolate cake) was off the charts! The restaurant has an extensive wine list and rotating beer on tap. The restaurant is small, only serving dinner Tuesday through Saturday. Reservations are therefore highly recommended since it was readily apparent that this restaurant is a favorite place to dine for locals in the area. Weather permitting, dining is available on the patio.

The service is wonderful and the food is always excellent. We have eaten here many times and we always get a wonderful meal from appetizers through dessert, and we always find a nice draft beer or glass of wine to go with the food. Our last visit was no exception to their excellence. I heartily suggest getting the fried duck egg with the grilled vegetable pizza. It makes the dish!

My friends and I were staying in Sequim overnight in order to be close to the Port Angeles ferry to Victoria. We had seen reviews that this was a good restaurant and were not disappointed. The food was delicious. We ordered salad and a pizza to share since it was late and we didn't want to eat a heavy meal. We all agreed it was probably the best meal we had during our 4 day trip. We ate outside on the patio. It was a little cool that night but they had heaters and blankets(!) and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

We had dinner here twice because we loved the fresh seafood, which was delicious. We also enjoyed a friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff.

My wife and I ate dinner here while staying in Sequim. We started with the Salmon ceviche which was excellent.... very mild, but flavorful. That was followed with salads (Pickled Beet and fig/rhubarb) which were exceptionally good. For the entree, my wife had a pizza (figs/chanterelle/bacon) and I had the smoked salmon carbonara. The pizza was one of the best we have ever eaten, but the carbonara was a bit too salty and the smoky flavor was a bit over powering. Good, but I would not order it again. This is definitely a first class restaurant. Reservations recommended. Closed Monday. Nice, home-like, setting. Quiet enough for dinner conversation. It is pricy however.
