    All aspects of our evening were outstanding. Prices have gone up though and a 5% service charge was added that is retained by the restaurant. I am not sure of the the purpose of that.

    Beautiful setting for dinner! Gorgeous views of the water. Staff was very friendly but service was slow for a group of 8. Food was good, but not good enough to justify the price. You are definitely paying for the views.

    This was our first time here and the food was amazing! We each had the mignon with the lobster tail. We got seating near the windows so we could enjoy the views of the water. It was quiet in there so you can carry on a conversation without yelling at each other across the table, even with the tables filling up with customers. Our server, Natalie, was absolutely amazing! She allowed us to take our time with the menu and our conversations and we never felt rushed. What I especially liked was how she sat us at a booth close to the window yet in front of our view were other empty tables. She didn't fill those tables with customers as it would make us look like we're staring at them, so she allowed us to maintain our views and privacy. This is a nice place to go and we'll definitely be back!

    The food and service were good, although pricey - what you're paying extra for is the best view in Tacoma, and a very nicely decorated space.

    The food was good but it was cold on arrival. I got the salmon and it honestly lacked flavor. Pretty expensive, small portions. Service was alright, never got a refill on my water or asked if I wanted more to drink.

    Phenomenal view, great guest service, food is buffett quality .. the bacon wrapped scallops and filet mignon was fantastic, the shrimp and sirloin not what I'd hope for...overall I'd do it again for the company and view.

    First off , the hostess was awkward and seemed confused . We had reservations for a window table but she proceeded to sit us In the corner of their back room until we mentioned our table by the window . There was a cold breeze throughout the whole restaurant enough to make you shiver . The menu was very small and expensive . $70 for a surf n turf , lobster was good but steak had no flavor . Could’ve gotten better at red lobster . 2 people and the tab was $200 . You’re basically paying for the view . Not to mention they add automatic 20% tip to every tab and ask for additional. The breeze was so strong it made the food cold in a few minuets . Overall the ambience was nice , but the food was not worth the money . If you’re looking to fine dine and spend at least $100 a person this is not the place .

    Belated Valentines dinner. Had limited menu that was kind of a let down. The staff was good but price a little high for the quality/quantity.

    Unfortunately, my husband and I ended up sick. We both had the Valentine's Day special salmon. It was delicious! But within an hour my husband started burping it up. I was fine until later in the evening and I was burping it up also and had bad heartburn. I ended up being sick throughout the night. My husband got up a couple of times and didn't feel well. He didn't eat all of his so he didn't eat as much as I did. Also, we felt gauged by the prices they offered on their "special limited offer". We could have had the pasta for a lower price but we didn't go out on Valentine's dinner to have pasta. Pasta is fairly cheap and easy to make and it was expensive also. We had to pay extra for bread, it wasn't even included in the very expensive dinner. Gratuity was already added and for the price of the dinner, I thought it was included in that price. We couldn't afford drinks after seeing the prices, so we drank water. We went here last year and prices weren't near as high as this year. I have to say it was the most expensive meal we have ever paid and that didn't include drinks or dessert! It was ridiculous and then to get sick afterward, I was totally upset! The waitress we had was a sweetheart and did a great job, in spite of everything else or I would have rated it a zero star! She was your only redeeming factor. I would not recommend you to anyone at this point. Needless to say, we will not be going back for another Valentine's day dinner.
