We came here for our anniversary dinner. The service was very nice however we felt rushed. We ordered cocktails and salads which came promptly. Our entrées arrived as soon as the salad plates were taken away. Food is delicious and portion sizes are just right. As soon as our dinner plates disappeared we settled to finish our half drunk cocktails. Not 5 minutes later the waiter shows up with an ice cream sundae with a candle in it to wish us happy anniversary. We blew out the candle and finished our drinks. Ice cream is now melting, but quickly comes our bill. He did offer coffee, but it was when our cocktails were half full. I had wanted to see the dessert menu and have coffee but decided just to go since they obviously wanted to flip the table. Yes, the sundae was free, but I am not a fan of ice cream with Hershey syrup with whipped cream. We arrived at 5:50 for our 6 pm reservation, and were back in the car at 7:05. Even used the restrooms on the way out. Not the relaxing dining experience we wanted for a celebration. Food is very good, will give it another try.

We usually eat early, and enjoy the selections on the early menu. The portions are just right. The service is excellent.

The restaurant is beautiful with a beautiful view of commencement bay.My Husband and I attended a private party and enjoyed a limited but delicious menu.We had the lobster bisque which was defintley my favorite thing I ate all night, top sirloin and NY strip steak with mashed potatoes and broccolini. Everything was amazing and we can't wait to go back and try even more dishes off the menu.
