That cheesecake was the best item we had. We were somewhat disappointed in the "blah" flavoring of everything. We don't need hot spicy, but spice or flavorings would have gone a long way in livening up several dishes. Their take on beef carpaccio was unique and quite tasty. The salmon with lentils and cauliflower was just boring. They cooked it beautifully, but sigh....
Drinks were also just ok. Service was fast and friendly.
If we could, we'd give it 3.5 stars.

Great day trip from Olympia, WA. Enjoyed the excellent food and service in a beautiful setting under the Astoria bridge.

Best brisket sandwich I have ever had! Melt in your mouth. Extensive wine, beer, and cinder list—allowed us to sample before choosing. We will be back!

Our hotel recommended this place and set our reservation. It was dark but we had a table by the window and could see the lights of the hotel and water. I had delicious monk fish. Good wine and dessert offerings, save room!
