Fish was good. Mussels and shrimp appetizer was horrible. It has a chain feel. Service was spotty as well. And it was expensive

Both visits were by the window overlooking the Bay. Beautiful sunsets. The Chicken Paneed and Short Ribs were delicious. Once my husband had filet mignon, done to perfection. Their garlic mashed potatoes were perfectly seasoned. My favorite... Spinach Salad. It could have been my meal.
