    Daniel. Is. The. Absolute. Best. The food at this place is good, but should be better.... especially for what it's priced, but the real reason to come here is for the view, the ambience and the service. Specifically Daniel. I haven't had service like it, really ever before. Daniel took such good care of me and my clients, balancing conversation with perfect timing of the food and drinks and was just plain and simply so kind and authentic. We will definitely be coming back for Daniel, and hoping in the meantime they figure out how to take the food to the next level.

    My wife and I were on vacation and went there for breakfast on a whim. Boy were we impressed. The place was practically empty on a Monday at 10:30 AM. We got the best seat in the house with an amazing view of the city. The service was excellent. Our breakfast was fantastic. We ordered the crab omelette French toast both were really really good. The bloody Mary’s were also very tasty.!

    Everything was perfection! From the spectacular views, most delicious octopus, cauliflower cod soup, halibut, pasta, and oh my, the 3 desserts we ordered! And then on top of that, the service and ambience was so elegant yet comfortable. Our lead server, Daniel Gorges, was especially exceptional, and truly made our night extra special. Can't wait to go back!

    The venue is well decorated, but very empty and quiet, so if you’re sat next to another party that is lively, it is very hard to ignore and concentrate on your own experience. The menu is enthusiastic, but the execution is average. Wait staffs are accommodating and gives full effort. The food and ambiance is just not quite there

    The appetizers were excellent. The main dishes and the desserts were less so. I had the pork chop and it was a thin slab of pork. Though tasty it was a bit overcooked. We had the fixed price menu. The entrees prices on the A la Carte menu were exorbitant.

    Honestly one of my worst dinner experience, due to a particular bad service. To set the scene, we asked for still and sparking water at the table. The waiter had the clever idea to serve each of us with two glasses, one still and one sparkling??? In our group of 8, there was one vegetarian guest. The only proposition was to remove from the fish dish the fish, and from the meat dish the meat. Nothing alternative. When asking why they couldnt simply make a veg dish like a salad, the first answer was "Sorry it would take too long and we only have 3 chefs instead of 5 - restaurant was half empty". Then we got a second and even worse answer "We are preparing the banquet for saturday - i doubt and hope not they prepare food for saturday on wednesday ??. Finally we ordered multiple (and very expensive) wines and they found a way to blend different wines into the same glass when serving. And instead of apologizing, the waiter said "all the glasses are very confusing" No to mention that the octopus "signature dish" was completely burnt and overcooked. Honestly I have no idea what happened, it felt like a surreal experience

    Not a good place for vegetarians or vegans. NO vegetarian entree options. My vegetarian friend ate an appetizer of gnocchi for her entree; the gnocchi was undercooked. I had the halibut and it was cooked well. The bread that they raved about was average. My Rosemary Mule (rosemary, ginger beer & lime) was delicious. The server was not very attentive even though it wasn't very busy. The ambiance was nice and the view was relaxing. No desire to go there again.

    Outstanding service and food was above par for the price. Did the 3 course prix fixe and it came with 3 outstanding and generous amuse bouche courses. The atmosphere Is classy and modern with a great view. I’ve eaten at several michelin star restaurants and can say the flavor profile combinations were complex and challenging. Preparation was executed perfectly and although there were a couple small hiccups in service, nothing I’ll complain about fresh out of post Covid. Plus our server handled it graciously and warmly. Elegant, wonderful meal. One I will always remember.

    Listen. Save your money and go some place else. Yes. The ambiance and the view is great. But for the food not worth 120 per person. There’s better food anywhere else where that will at least leave you full and cost way less.

    Sigh, I looked forward to this dining experience for a birthday for my significant other. The setting is beautiful and unique and hard to top in Seattle. The private dining rooms are chic and comfortable. However, the key to any fine dining experience is the food. The ingredients were fresh, high quality, and well presented, but on the first, second, third, and final bite, the feeling was...absent. There was no flavor or soul to the dishes. Peach gazpacho: fresh but lacking a distinctive peach flavor, there was barely a hint. Stone Oven Octopus: cooked well, but the most distinctive flavor was the sunflower seeds. Anderson Ranch Lamb: I've had more interesting pieces of Safeway porkchop prepared in my grandmother's kitchen (for free!) Lemon-Yazu Tart: tart level on a 1-10 scale, 2 :/ Was this a result of my particular path through the pre-Fixe menu or an indicator that the chefs need to reevaluate how they season their food? You decide, but I recommend enjoying the wine list, cocktails and views. Save your $150 a find another place for fine dining. I also tested negative for COVID, and my flavor receptors are fully functioning, evidenced by a variety of cocktails and deserts later that evening.
