“Returned for the View”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

We returned here for the food and the great view, but since our last visit they have put a huge ferris wheel on the end of the wharf which obstructs much of the view :( The food was good and the service was just okay, eventhough they weren't very busy because of the weather. Clam chowder was excellent and the portions were generous, still a nice place for dinner.

“Best hidden place in Seattle”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Don't wait an hour for the Crab Pot. I did for years, then one day I was on a harbor cruise and saw this lovely patio right on the water. A few nights later we were going to the Crab Pot. As usual the wait was about 40 minutes. Then I remembered the restaurant on the water, right behind the Crab Pot. We walked back towards the arcade and sat right down and had the best dinner. Much better than the Crab Pot and for about the same price if not cheaper. Great place!

“Great food and service”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

We enjoyed our early evening meal here (halibut and chips with clam chowder to start). The location was great, with a night view of the lights along the water front. The menu had many seafood and other options. Service was excellent and friendly. This was our second time visiting this restaurant on our trips to Seattle and we would recommend it.

“Mmmm Good”
Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Another great place to have a delicious meal on the water front where there are hundreds of restaurants. Had to have the staple fish n chips. Nice they use panko bread crumbs and of course the cod fish was fresh.

“cioppino! Worth the flight to Seattle!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

The restaurant serves a dish called cioppino...a gourmet medley of crab, halibut, oysters, clams & salmon served in a tomato broth. I will return to this restaurant every time I come to Seattle just for this dish!
