    Horrible service. Waited 2 hours for our food and then it was cold and dried up because we had been forgotten. They offered a “small discount” for inedible food. Never again. Beware.

    Tasty dinner with a beautiful view! Reserved an outdoor table for early evening, definitely worth booking early. It was sunny and gorgeous out, bring sunglasses just in case so you can fully enjoy the view. Great service all around, appropriate timing and gave us everything we asked for promptly. Saw some larger groups who had to wait longer for food, so yeah if you have 12 people you might have a longer experience, but for our small sample size of 2 people no complaints at all! Halibut with polenta was a highlight, as were bruschetta toasts. Good food and great service on a beautiful evening, what more can you ask for.

    My wife and I enjoyed a lovely breakfast at the Fireside on a Saturday morning. Attentive service, timely coffee refills, and delicious food. We both got the buckwheat pancakes which were very tasty, particularly the berry compote topping. Plenty of real maple syrup and side of bacon was good too. Staff was accommodating and checked on us just enough. Thanks for a pleasant experience!

    After waiting almost an hour and 1/2 we left with out eating our dinner. Had to ask several times for bread and then asked twice for butter. We did have mussels and they were good. Gave up waiting for the main course. Went for Mexican food instead and had great service. Too bad! Was looking forward to eating there.

    Poor service. Other diners were offered a “happy hour menu “, we were not. Only had a very short wine list. One choice of Chardonnay, it was not very good. Asked for a side salad. It was served with dinner, not prior. Overall it was a Very bad experience. General manager was put off when we told her of our displeasure.

    For years now we’ve wondered why nothing has been done to shield diners from bright hot sun on clear summer evenings. You should consider inexpensive roll down bamboo shades. Our reasonably good meal (despite slow service because of ongoing banquet) was rather uncomfortable because we were unable to find any shade.

    Service was very good. We had a waterfront table as requested and had a lovely view of the harbor. The food was just ok. Bruschetta to start was unexpectedly more like toasters cheese, not fresh vibrant flavors i expected. Cesar salad was rather watery as if the lettuce had been washed but not dried well before dressing. My husband had a steak dish that looked horribly unappetizing, everything on the plate was brown, steak, roasted potatoes and beets. Some green vegetables or other color would have been nice, it wasn’t a great flavor combo either. I had salmon which was nicely cooked so no problem with that. It was a nice experience because of the service and the view but I wouldn’t hurry back to eat there.

    First, the food was fresh and amazing. Compliments to the Chef! The service was lacking. It took 60 minutes to get a drink and we were already through our small plate and received our salad. The server was not personable and did not make us feel welcome. There was always a rush away from our table and it made us feel awkward and uncomfortable. The other server was attentive to the tables he had and it made us even more frustrated that our server was as not giving us the attention. Would love to eat the food again but not sure would want to risk poor service.

    A very disappointing experience overall. I booked a reservation in advance for an outside, marina view table for my husband’s birthday. Upon check in, the hostess, Macy said all tables reserved outside were booked before I made my reservation, so we were sat in a two top in a corner away from any type of view, while a patio table stayed vacant during our entire meal. We waited over 15 minutes to be greeted by a server, the service was terrible and the meal was not amazing like the reviews we read. We won’t be back.

    The food was meh. There was an errant burnt piece of fusili pasta in my husband’s flat iron steak which was inedible and he thought was a piece of burnt vegetable . When we pointed it out to the server she shrugged it off. The beans in the endive salad were very stringy and hard to chew. Finally my white shrimp dinner cost $33 and I only got 3 shrimp! And they weren’t even jumbo sized. Won’t be back; especially for the price, this was disappointing.

    We were very pleased with our choices of entrees: "king" salmon - which was actually coho, not sockeye salmon, and beef major - which was lean and tasty, close to tenderloin in texture. The spinach salad was delicious!

    Our dinner here with friends from Arizona ended up being their favorite meal while visiting. From the beautiful views to the most delicious food, we couldn’t have asked for a perfect place. We were all literally holding ourselves back from licking our plates. We had the halibut, black cod and sockeye salmon. The cod was our first favorite and then it was an even tie between the other two. Sooo good!
