Fantastic place. If a restaurant serves one particular dish for the last 15 years it must be something. And it was - a halibut steak was divine. Until yesterday I was convinced that the best Alaskan halibut is being served in San Francisco. Now I...More

Although still at Iceland level prices, it was much more comfortable than prices within downtown. The food is delicious. Their signature halibut is exquisite. Great service.
