A word from The Depot Restaurant - Seaview
The Depot Restaurant - Seaview features casual fine dining offering a Chef's Table to watch owner Chef Michael Lalewicz perform his magic from a display kitchen. The covered heated deck adds outdoor seating. A northwest and international wines list offers 16 wines by the glass and six microbrews on-tap. This 125 year old train station from the peninsula's Clamshell Railroad feels like a French Bistro especially when seated at the 9 seat counter reminding one of the Orient Express. Northwest Palate claims "Lalewicz has food angels in the kitchen" and food writer Gerry Frank of the Oregonian declares "the Depot is one of the best Dinner Houses in the Northwest"

  • "This is our go to,restaurant whenever we want to be pampered and taken care of. The food here is second to none and the service staff are the best. The consistency of the food here is always spot on, (even if Chef Michael is on vacation). My wife and I always look forward to dining at The Depot, even though it is a forty minute drive for us to get there. This restaurant is simply the best in the nw."

  • "The service was excellent and we were welcomed as soon as we arrived. They were very accommodating to our diet restrictions. I had the pan fried oysters and I have never had better. My wife's dinner was also excellent. They had a reasonable wine list. It was nice to be able to look into the kitchen and see what was being prepared. THe ambience was quaint, not too large and pleasant."

  • "I enjoyed the warm and friendly atmosphere and the new years eve hats, neclaces and noise blowers on the table were a fun touch. The BBQ pork and mashed sweet potatoe was fabulous, comfort food. The apple crisp with hot caramel sauce was amazing. The service was very friendly but a little slow that night (the place was packed). This is a very cozy place to go for good food, wine and friendly people."

  • "we had such a wonderful meal. The chef is a wizard with seafood."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner at the Chef's Table located next to their semi-open kitchen. The chef-owner was working and provided a delicious complimentary cheese tray. The spinach salad was one of the best I have had - including at some of the top Seattle restaurants. Both of our steak and sole/crab entrees and side dishes were excellent. The service was extremely attentive. I would highly recommend The Depot!!"

  • "Whenever I am in the vicinity of Astoria or the Long Beach Peninsula, I never miss The Depot. So good it can bring tears to your eyes. I have dined all over the world and nothing is better. Just as good but not better. Michael, the owner and chef, is a master at chosing fine ingredients and preparing them to tantalizing levels. Go there."

  • "Taste of food is always good...however, I ordered halibut special but was served cut up COD and a tiny bit of serving of halibut! the table right behind us ordered the same thing and was served...HALIBUT...one whole steak of it! That was the single most horrible dining experience I have ever had!"

  • "One of our favorite restaurants anywhere. We try to have dinner at the Depot whenever we visit Long Beach. Always a wonderful experience from the moment you step in the door until you leave! Every dish we have tried has been excellent, and the service is warm, friendly and professional. Although it is a romantic setting lovely for a special occasion, the service is noted to be friendly and welcoming to families with young children as well."

  • "We only get to this area 1X per year. The Depot is a must when here. The restaurant was very busy the night we were there. We were impressed that the waitress acknowledged us and told us she would be right with us. So much better than some that act as if you don't exist as they rush by to serve others. Food here was nearly excellent. I had a marsalla quail stuffed with sausage. The sauce was so good I had to ask for extra bread to sop it up. My wife's filet mignon was perfectly done. I only dock the rating of food because the side vegetables were overcooked."

  • "We were happy to discover this restaurant by accident. It was a great experience and we would recommend it for regular and special occasions. Delightful, and the service was wonderful. We also discovered we knew the owners. We'll visit again as soon as we can."

  • "Never in my life have I had to correct a restaurant in regards to my bill where the restaurant forgot to include a beverage that I ordered, only to get a phone call later to inform me that my credit card statement will reflect an increased charge because they missed it again without my signature authorizing the additional charge! I would expect a restaurant that expects patron recommendations to eat the less than $5 and to never go where any restaurant owner has ever gone before by actually charging my credit card without an authorization signature. I'll be sure NOT to recommend The Depot to any of my friends visitng Long Beach, Washington."

  • "Fabulous restaurant with a terrific chef and staff. It is worth the trip to Long Beach just to eat there. The clam chowder is the best we have ever had. It is a true gem."

  • "Salmon was delicious, ambiance amazing however, service from the front of house manager or owner was dismal. Although my salmon was very good, my wife's pheasant was not. When asked how our food was I politely explained that my food was excellent but, my wife's was less than so. Rather than offer something else instead, my wife was just told "it's an acquired taste". I found this response to be offensive, pretentious, and rude. Rather than continue our dining experience, I immediately asked for the check. With a price tag averaging $25-$35 a plate I would expect to leave satisfied. Instead my wife was forced to eat the BBQ mess they called pheasant and she and I both left the restaurant with a bad taste in our mouths."

  • "When it comes to having a positive visit to The Depot, the staff and dining experience continues to be consistently positive. When the staff recognized that they did not have a table available at the time we had made the reservation. They called and asked if they could seat us at a different location or a another time. When the meat was a little over done, they immediately attempted to correct the situation. With that being said, the taste was great, matching rest of the the meal. The dessert, a black berry and peach cobbler was fantastic."
