We make an annual pilgrimage out to Vashon to eat (and drink) here. The moment you walk into the nondescript storefront, you feel transported to another place. The service is impeccable from the hostess to the servers, and the cocktails and food are exquisite. The servers do an incredible job of accommodating vegetarians, carnivores, picky eaters, and children. Make sure... More

Our last visit was a bit disappointing. My wife had the trout special of the evening. I can't remember what I ordered, but I know that my dinner arrived cold. Not warm. Cold. I guess that everyone is entitled to the occasional mistake.

I won't be a nasty person... just be warned by the title. Lousy service by snobbish people... dark place inside( I wonder why).... the server didn't care that the dish we ordered was horrible... never offered anything else... we didn't even eat it... we just left after we paid for our food and will never go there again lesson learned.
