Restaurant was great. But the parking was too pricey. We had our ticket validated by our waitress. And we gave to attendant and he advised we owed $11 for the 2 hours we were there. I thought that a validated ticket would be free and attendant said it would've been a lot more without it. That was disappointing for us. Is this something the restaurant can do anything about? Thank you

The pear salad was excellent, the salmon with crab was outstanding, and we also liked the sea bass. The only thing we didn’t like was the quinoa- salty and too wet.

I was very disappointed! We went there for a non -traditional Thanksgiving dinner. I called ahead to ask if they would have lobster on that day, because that's what I specifically wanted. They told me yes they would be serving lobster. I also asked if we could have a water view with our reservations. When we got there, the place was half empty, but they still tried to sit us in the middle of the restaurant. I had to have a conversation in front of my family about getting a water view, because it was part of a surprise. Then they had no lobster! I only splurge for this kind of meal once or twice a year. I was really looking forward to the lobster! Drinks were way to strong, had to send them back and have a coke. After the salad, had to wait forever for our food to come out!! Lady serving us came over once to see how things were ,but stood right next to our table waiting for her tip! I'll never go there again! !

The food was just okay, nothing we ate was too great. But, the complimentary bread (sourdough) was amazing, it was the best sourdough I have ever had! The bread with butter was considerably tasty. The scenery was to die for, the view of the water was both beautiful and breathtaking. The service was good, the waitress checked up on us often, constantly checking if we needed more water or bread. Overall, the food was fair, and the service and location is great.

We celebrated Thanksgiving with friends and family at the Harbor House. We were very disappointed with the whole experience, service was slow, even though the restaurant was not even half full. As for the food I can only comment on their Thanksgiving preselected menu, I would compare our meal to something we would expect from Denny's, not unpalatable, but very bland.

I went on a date. They have previously asked if it was a special occasion. They greeted me warmly and offered me a great table for a nice view and intimate conversation. Service was excellent and the food superb. Great date night!

We felt the dinner was over priced, although the fresh swordfish was great and the salad was very good. The service was slow and our waiter seemed to forget what he was doing at times. I'd say he had way too many tables that he was responsible for.

Had grilled fish tacos - my favorite place to eat them and we tried to desserts and divided them up with the group - choc cake and the Key Lime Pie - Key Lime one the best but the choc cake was delicious too. My husband loved the fish tacos and since they were grilled it was a plus for him - he is trying to eat healthy! They are served in soft taco fashion and are quit filing. Can't beat the view.We might have gotten a new waiter but other waiters really kicked in to refill our glasses several times and make sure we got what we needed once I asked for something. Normally service is very good here. It can be packed at lunch hour even during the week so get reservations just to be safe.

Looking for a decent seafood dinner, restaurant is located in a tourist area, so should have taken that into consideration. Restaurant was on par with a venue catering to tourists, nice location, more expensive than the quality justified.

This is a great place to bring out of town guests for the view, especially if you are bringing children. The food at best is average. Service was very good. Prices are reasonable, as are the portions. There are better view restaurants, but they are more expensive.

The occasion was my daughter's 50th birthday and I had requested a bay view table. We were given one in the corner which actually gave us better views than just straight on. The food was very good with friendly and courteous service. Thank you for a very pleasant dining experience.

My family and I have loved eating here in the past and I was so excited to take my husband to celebrate our anniversary. What a disappoint. The food was average. The server was terrible...never even coming to check on us. We were stuck at a little table that had me stuck up against a corner. The experience was such a let down.

LOVE their Tuna tower. Mixed sea food plate and paella are great
He an issue with a waiter when asked to change tables as the table next to us used vulgarity. He said we have a lot of reservation though they had empty tables. I told him we have reservation too. My husband talked yo the manager who changed our table right away but again the waitress was half hearted into what she did. We had notes that we r celebrating a birthday, no one mentioned anything. Other restaurants usually acknowledge birthdays with something and a candle. We love the restaurant have been there many times and was excellent. This time we so so
