    We had amazing service from Kyle! We were out celebrating our anniversary. The food was great, started with the queso and for my entree I had the carne asada.. go with their flour tortillas! Finished with the churros, I'd recommend!

    Steak was over cooked. Additionally, it took the waiter 3 tries to get our bill fixed due to extra or inaccurate charges.

    This is the place to go for dinner, lunch, drinks, appetizers etc. A wonderful location; great views of the harbor and the city. When I made the reservation I asked for a table on the railing with a view of the water and the city. Upon arrival, without reminding them about my request when I made the reservation, we were seated at a table that was exactly as I requested, a view of the harbor and the city. The food was exceptional, the Salmon was perfect, the Carne Asada delicious, the chicken our friends had was amazing. Truly, we were all commenting after just about every bite how good the food was. By the way, we were dining with a Federal Judge and we were all sober as a Judge so it wasn't the liquor that made us happy, it was the service and the food. Great place in every way. Very happy!

    Everything was lovely except that we had asked specifically for a table that wasn’t in direct sun and that’s exactly where we were put. We hope people will read the notes the next time before seating customers who make reservations. Otherwise everything was absolutely wonderful.

    Always a winner. The food is consistent, service is good (considering the current state of restaurant staffing) and the environment/location is 5 star. I always recommend making a reservation. Walk ins will have a bit of a wait.

    We were originally led to a table very close to a noisy private event on the barge, but when I asked for a table away from that site, my request was graciously granted. Our server was welcoming and knowledgeable. I fantasized about having her cater a party for us. My beloved out of town family was so happy to be on the water with well prepared, beautiful food. It made our once-a-year reunion perfect.

    We came in to celebrate our anniversary early before heading to the Civic Theater. Seating outside is in high demand. But it was worth sitting inside to have Marina wait on us. She was friendly, had fantastic recommendations and was attentive without being intrusive. All the staff we interacted with was great. The food was delicious! The drinks were tasty. We left pleased with our choice and stuffed.

    What a gorgeous restaurant! Beautifully run and organized! Food and drinks were excellent except for the shrimp and crab salad with squid ink. The salad did not look appetizing with a black sauce and didn’t enjoy the taste. The poblano corn soup, salad, twice baked potato were excellent! The s’mores dessert was outstanding! Loved the coconut margarita! It was a lovely birthday! Wait staff was very attentive.

    After being seated 15mins late from our reservation time, the manager came and expressed her apologies in a very polite manner. Offer us a complimentary appetizer which was a great guacamole! And because we were celebrating our anniversary, a complimentary dessert was sent with a lot of good wishes. Thank you for making out a great experience and something to remember!

    Had a business dinner meeting with colleagues. We are currently searching for a venue to celebrate our non-profit Holiday party. Food was tasty, ambiance can get noisy later in the evening. A bit pricey, but you can get the Harbor view.

    Good food. We asked for patio dining and our table was partially exposed to the sun. It was a warm day. We asked if we could move tables or if a portable canopy could be brought in to block the sun. Note, there was a fixed canopy by our table but it did not have a tilt angle for adjustment. There was an attempt made by our waiter to ask another table near ours that located was under the roof and shaded if their umbrella could be move slightly to accommodate our request and they refused. One member of our party was left to bake in the sun the entire time of our reservation. Disappointingly, we were not offered the chance to move and although our waiter was apologetic, the problem was not resolved.
