We have been here several times, and the food has been terrific every time. We love the garlic bread, eggplant parmesan, crab cakes, jumbo prawns, pasta primavera, clams, blackened salmon, blackened catfish, and blackened ahi. Bring your appetite because the portions are large. Their wine selection is very diverse. We recommend making reservations because it gets very crowded, and there... More

Been here on a number of occasions, as it's a favorite of our sister-in-law. Previously had some of their pasta dishes and a couple of their Steak Combo Dishes but was not motivated to share a review. This time, my wife had the Paella and I had their Fish & Crab Cake Combo. The fish, which I believe was a... More

We enjoyed dinner on a Saturday night. They have a variety of "by the bucket" type dishes so we opted for mussels. We also had their sourdough rolls as well as shared a wedge salad. Food was very good. Service was good too. They have lots of TVs in the restaurant. Some were showing the Warrior Basketball Game and others... More

I had placed a lunch order, I ordered the fish and chips and they weren't very good, I didn't like the batter. But they are very generous with the fries. Also had ordered the shrimp louie salad, had it the next day, there was a good amount of shrimp, but there could of been a bit more of the other... More

We ordered four dishes, two beers, and a glass of wine. We sat drinking our water for over 13 minutes. At which time the waiter returned and told us the gnocchi was not available and one of the beers was not available. He brought one menu for the person who ordered the gnocchi, the person who ordered the amigos dish... More

We were part of a large family group, eating at a long established restaurant that part of the family had frequented in the 80's and 90's. They have a lot of 49er memorabilia as bar décor including Super Bowl trophy replicas (I assume they're replicas since the only logical place for the originals is at HQ rather than a bar).... More

Great spot for traditional Italian food and seafood. Our party had absolutely fabulous Salmon that was perfectly cooked and well seasoned. Mashed potatoes were spot on and very creamy. I had a wonderful spicy Blackened Jambalaya served on a spicy bed of rice. They are used to handling a lot of volume so the servers seem to be geared towards... More
