We came to meet some friends for happy hour last week and had really nice time. Professional and friendly service and outstanding appetizers and cocktails. The view of the harbor is beautiful! We will definitely be back!

First dining experience here. Decent food that would have been better had it actually had been hot. Clean restaurant with average service with a great view of the Tacoma harbor. We'll give it another chance.
