Great restaurant and lounge. Service is exceptional and very friendly. The food is great, my favorite is there Scallops. Suggest making reservations if going at busy lunch or dinner time.

The three course lunch special is a bargain and includes some of their standards. We started with their house specialty cocktail 'MaiTai.

There is only street parking. The menu was dated so I assume that they change it every day based on the fresh fish available. I think that they had Dungeness crab but the season is very short so check with the restaurant... More
