I absolutely love the way they flash sear their Sea Scallops! But don't stop there. Service was great and even when one meat dish was overcooked, they comp'd it. Great restaurant that I highly recommend.

To be fair, we were there the night the restaurant reopened after a one-month remodel. Apparently, they want to pay for the work by jacking up the prices. Plank Salmon at $43, when it is in the high $20s to low $30s pretty much everywhere...More

Excellent service. Great menu and wine list. Had a business dinner and enjoyed some very tasty Halibut. Lots of very nice restaurants in the area but I think we chose right. Would go again.
