Seth was a great waiter but honestly the food just was not that great. My husband’s salmon lacked flavor and on the other hand my shrimp was way too salty.

Everything about this place was amazing! Came here with 2 girlfriends for my birthday dinner. The ambiance was cozy and warm. The food was absolutely phenomenal, the drinks pretty and yummy! And the service incredible! If you're in Portland and want food seafood, I highly suggest coming here. Our table was impressed with every aspect of our experience!

We booked a week in advance for a party of 8. We called 2 times to try and get 4-6 more ppl added to our reservation. They said they were overbooked & could not accommodate.. when we arrived we had a whole room to ourselves and 5-7 tables empty. Wish we could of had our other friends join, since not booked at all. Awful organization and lost revenue because.

Tough $60 rib eye
One meal missed and had to wait additional 20mins ...
Lost in the shuffle....
Not the worst but for 600 bucks we deserve a better experience.

Really efficient and pleasant staff.

The ventilation seemed to be quite good.

It got quite noisy. The music just added to the noise.

There is a great selection of seafood and cocktails, but no vegetarian entrees.

This restaurant scored “must return” points in our book. We had a great time: checking in and seating was fast and efficient, we had a GREAT VIEW upstairs, our waitperson Karen was simply wonderful, and the food was amazing. We ordered from the chef’s choice selection, and my son had the pre fixe Thanksgiving plate. Dessert was cleaned off the plates too. Our only comment would be the length of time the food came in, but it was probably due to the holiday crowd, since some of the tables had huge seating.

Ordered traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Dry meat, not enough gravy, stuffing tasteless. Good salad, mashed potatoes, green beans, and sweet potato dish. I should have stuck to my original thought of ordering seafood. I know that would have been exceptional!

The service was lacking and the server was testy. She forgot sides and drinks and seemed put off when reminded. The two Turkey entree’s were ice cold. They were not sent back because no one checked up on us. At least not until a good 20” had passed. The shrimp were mostly a thick batter. And the Caesar salad was bland. Our party of eight all said they aren’t going back. The location and views are beautiful.

We had a mixed experience because the heat was not working, and the food was not the quality we expected. The calamari was overly crispy and the Parmesan cod was soggy.

Nice restaurant, smaller, larger bar area yet we do not drink. seemed to really "push" the alcohol. dinner was fine, requested a window table, nice view yet kind of cold because the cooling system runs along the bottom of the windows. OK experience, probably will not return

Took advantage of Happy Hour in the bar then had dinner in the dining room. Food & drinks were great. Our lounge server, Brian, was excellent. Our dining room server never introduced himself & was rather abrupt at the table. Our experience was excellent however & we will certainly return.

The food was quick and hot. The breading on the fish was light and tasty. The beer selection was adequate to make many choices. There were few people in the room so the waiter was very prompt and accommodating. It was a quiet and peaceful venue to have a lunch. I checked no on a recommendation because I have been burned too many times relying on them.

Service was definitely slow and a little inexperienced. We were throwing some big money around on wine and the ~21 year old server bro didn't know red wine from kool aid. You'd think if they sensed a table of wine dorks looking to go big was in the house they'd send over someone more knowledgeable over to help, or that he might ask for help.
The food is as always just ok, never great. It's been that way for 20 years so didn't expect any different.

It was really just OK.
The bisque was way too thick- inedible.
My fish should have been a delicate Parmesan crusted Fish and I can only liken it to burgerville’s fried fish (but with less fish in it!).
It was over cooked and flavorless.
My sons steak was served rare (ordered medium).
It took 25 minutes to get him a new one at which point all the rest of the table had finished.
The sad part was it was his special day and all he wanted was a nice steak.
UTTERLY disappointed.
If you only do 2 things- steak and seafood- for the love of God,
Please try and do them well.
There are about 200 ways to check a steak for its level of done ness.
It’s such a nice location. I hope they get it together but we will absolutely not go back.

We came here for the first time last night to celebrate our 6 year wedding anniversary. We were seated in a private area over looking the restaurant which was amazing. Our server Michael was awesome and hooked us up with a nice celebratory dessert. Literally every dish we ordered was so tasty and the overall experience was outstanding. We can’t wait to come eat here again! Thanks for making our day special.

This was our first outing since February 2020. My birthday called for us to take a chance, go in early and hope few diners were around. Also, this restaurant is, in a word, cavernous so it being my birthday and wanting a special meal, we figured we were overall safe. It was a terrific choice. Food was delicious and interesting; I had steak as my annual birthday present, and my husband had the fish called cobia --- tastefully prepared. The appetizer salads were generous, the bread to die for and I had dessert, creme broulee. Service was friendly, informative and timely. We will be back!
