You can never beat the daily fresh sheet. The food is amazing. We most often come for brunch, but dinner is very nice as well. When on doubt, get the quiche, and top it with a bloody mary. It also has a great atmosphere, charming and comfortable, with a great view of the marina.

We had dinner on Friday night with good friends and the food was very good. We all ordered from the specials menu and we're glad we did. I had sea scallops cooked and seasoned perfectly with unusual garnishes such as a parsnip and green garlic purée, also with blood orange segments too. I know it sounds strange but it worked....

Well, it is the location and the grand view what is justifying the visit. We ordered octupus as a starter and filet as the main course. Starter came very fast and wasn't really hot or warm-we guessen, it must have been pre-prepared. But: once we got the starter, TWO minutes later, I got my maincourse. Complaining about it, they of...

This lovely restaurant on the shores of Lake Washington transports you to Paris with the first taste of their Onion Soup! Just walk in the do0r and you are embraced by the friendly and smiling staff in full length white aprons covering their jeans and dress shirts. Its hard to decide what to rave about first ,the incredible view of... More

We got here around 4 pm, the place was totally deserted (there was only one couple sitting on a table).... we asked to the hostess at the entrance if it was possible having only a drink (like an aperitif), she said that was fine, but it wasn't allowed to use any of the tables because they are reserved to the...

Our 2nd time here was not very good at all. Started off by poor service, forgotten order items, wrong size of the soup ordered, slow service. Nice water views of Lake Washington

Nice night out, although it was not the authentic French flavors I was hoping for - the reviews I read sounded promising, but the dishes fell a bit short. Being from Australia, we have struggled to find 'real' or 'made fresh' foods in the united states so far; unfortunately most places serve the typical American mass produced flavours, and premake...
