We had an outstanding dinner at this lovely restaurant. The view over the water is spectacular. The servers were very attentive and professional. We were offered an amuse bouche and an extra sweet after dessert. This was a very elegant and delicious experience!

I attended a reception at this restaurant in early June. The food was excellent; it was mostly "finger food" offered by roving waiters/waitresses; however, there was a Pacific northwest salmon dish, a lamb chop carving station, and an excellent cheese selection. There were two wine...More
