We had a window seat on a sunny day. Best place to eat lunch in Olympia on a sunny day. Had the always good the cod sandwich. Our server and hostess were outstanding and took good care of us.

Went for Velentines day dinner, so business above normal. But staff still on top of everything. Server was excited and fantastic. Ordered the beef Wellington and a glass of wine to go with. Would certainly order again. And return to special nights

Evelyn and I celebrated our wedding anniversary on Valentine's day since we married many years ago on February 14th.

Our food was well prepared; no complaints.

Our attendant was very attentive and even took an image of Evelyn and me together on our special day.

I recommend this place if you want to enjoy good food and service.

They were busy for Valentine Dinner. We had reservations and were seated immediately. Service was prompt and food was served hot and properly prepared. Server was attentive and friendly but not overly so.

As busy as they were, we never had a feeling of being rushed and enjoyed our after dinner wine by our window table.

We felt ignored and our requests were not listened to. I asked for a baked potato with my salmon but I got the corn bread which my husband ate. He gave me his potato. Our waitress was nice but so busy with everyone else that we did not get our salad for about an hour after our 5:30 reservation. Our bill was $122 so for that amount we would expect a little more attention and timely service.

Lunch menu - salmon was grilled and tasty but dry and the steaks ordered were small for the cost. Otherwise, the food was good as always.

Love the ambiance of the place, they just need to update their menu with some new stuff, and their bar service is slow. other than that we've enjoyed going there all the time.

This was my first time at this restaurant. The building is very attractive, the interior is very modern, and the view was wonderful. The doors don’t open for lunch until 11:30; people were waiting to get in, so it took 5 minutes or so to get seated (we had a reservation). Staff was a little disorganized; if you’re not going to open earlier, then staff need to be ready to seat immediately.

Our server was friendly and attentive. Overall, he did a good job, but did make an error on 2 people’s checks, having to redo them.

My main disappointment was with the food. I had the crab and corn chowder trio - soup, small side Caesar salad, and small piece of focaccia bread. The soup was thin, watery, and very little crab; it tasted mostly like milk. We had to ask for more bread because the first piece provided was so small. Apparently due to the influx of early diners (try opening at 11am!) they didn’t have enough bread initially. For $15, the quality of the soup should be MUCH better.

I’ll not rush back.

Made reservations for 6:15 pm on a Thursday. Arrived early about 6. Crowded as they were doing a promotion. Didn't expect to not get seated until after 6:35. Was offered a free appetizer for late seating despite reservations (it looked like they seated a couple of arrivals without reservations ahead of us). Food was disappointing. Prawns were overcooked and chewy. Cod was so-so. No side veggies. Just some chopped up yams for both entrees.

The food was pretty good, but the wait staff seemed harried and unhappy. We had reasonable service but I would never call it "friendly."

My wife and I are very upset with your bait and switch coupon that was sent out for $20 off a meal. After our meal was over we were told that we could not use the coupon because we had chosen items on the menu that the coupon would not apply to. Why invite people to your restaurant with your coupon and then say you cannot use it. We have told all of our friends about this little scam hoping that they do not visit your restaurant. We have a lot of friends.

The next time you offer another coupon, have the decency to make it apply to your entire menu.

Really love the reservation system. I made the same day in the morning was a very simple process. We were greeted warmly and taken to a wonderful booth. The view was amazing. the Waitress was fabulous and felt like an old friend. Cannot wait to bring some friends there soon.

Excellent food and service. The restaurant was packed when we arrived but we were seated right on time. We had the salmon and the cod, both well prepared...juicy, excellent blend of spices, cooked just right. Condiments were excellent as well and made sense with the entree. Wait staff was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about menu items. Ambiance was warm and inviting. Highly recommend.

Location and staff were very nice. Food not so much. Our teenager ordered man and cheese which she barely touched because it was so bland. But pretty spot. More vegetarian options would be nice

Have already recommended Anthony's to friends. Enjoyed my experience there and would 10/10 go back. In fact, I probably will be back for a birthday dinner in July.

The food was not what we have come to appreciate. The waiter was only interested in talking to me, was almost rude and condescending to my elderly parents. I was very disappointed with the experience and will not recommend to anyone.

The views from the Hearthfire are really great. The services was a little sub par for Anthony’s. The food was great. The only problem we had was the bill was added up wrong and we were charged $8 more than the bill showed. The numbers DID NOT add up. Check your bill

Even though it was very busy, our server was so great with us throughout the meal. Drinks were slow and the mashed potatoes were so salty they were literally inedible. But we had a great time and a great meal in a very beautiful location.

Busy night at Anthony’s and our first time there. The service was friendly and attentive. The cocktails were made exactly as we had ordered, and we had time to enjoy them with warm complementary flatbread before our entrees arrived. The margarita prawns with fettuccine were fresh and delicious. I rarely finish the entire entree when dining out, but this dish was exceptional. We will definitely be back.

The view is amazing! We have been here numerous visits but unfortunately I think the server did not pick up our order when it was done. The plate almost burned her and our fish was blazing hot while the potato was barely warm. Usually service is very good as well as the food.
