From the appetizer to the main course to dessert, every bit was better than the next. Thanks for a great experience.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMgourmet food at low priceThe food is imaginative and beautifully presented. Maitre D perfect. You can get a kitchen view or dockside. Recommend buffet but you will have to book way ahead.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe young servers are a littleThe young servers are a little shaky, but their heart is really into good service, so one has to be tolerant. The food was excellent. My only VERY minor complaint was that I prefer fish to be more or less rare; the halibut was a trifle dry.
The restaurant itself is attractive and free of the too loud music that keeps me away from many other restaurants. I did not check it out but I noticed what seems to be a really neat retail bakery at the front entrance.
I'm coming back again next week, so that is my vote of confidence.3/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
