I had the Horseradish encrusted salmon; I wasn’t impressed. It sat in a tomato based soup like dish. With a horseradish pancake on top. My Chocolate Lava Cake was overcooked...so Ne mealtime chocolate inside. The server was great and a nice view.

Food was pretty good, I ordered the Chef Special salmon stuffed with crap, brie. It was over cooked and not really stuffed with anything. Not a favorite.

Great food in a lovely setting. It is my favorite pre-theater restaurant. For other occasions parking is the only deterrent.

We were there for my birthday dinner also dinning month we picked this place because I like mussels however we got there for dinner at 4:00pm and they ran out of mussels. Food were good but our server did not seem to like her job. I would come back but I would call to make sure they have the dish that you are looking forward to have in advance

We like the food and service! A good place to relax and enjoy pretty good food.
Perhaps they can change the mussel dish to white wine sauce instead of tomato base?

Kind knowledgeable staff with superior customer service and stellar food!! The oysters Rockefeller and lobster bisque are a must but the horseradish crusted steel head may be my new favorite!! You will not be disappointed!!

Food portions for a dinner meal I paid for were way too small (Parmesan crusted chicken). Not coming back.

Fantastic all around, food, ambience and the waiter, Chris.

It was our 50th wedding anniversary which made the evening extra special.

Thank you for the complimentary dessert!

The rock fish had no flavor an for $36 we expected better. The clam chowder was way too spicy! So sad because it’s usually better.

Not the best trip here. Waitress was bad, service was super slow for us. Other staff was serving tables in a steady fashion where as we were left waiting for our food several times.

Not my normal visit to this location. I always have a seat in the main restaurant where noise level is low. This visit I was placed in what I would suspect is a banquet area that had stairs leading down to the bar. I can say that because it appeared that our servers were confused on who had what table....waited a good 10 minutes to be served after we were seated.

I have been here before and it’s always been a great visit.

This trip to Harborside was a bit disappointing. The appetizers and main were good, but the timing was pretty bad and felt rushed at times. For example, we were done our appetizer before the wine even showed up. The desert wasn't great - we had the creme brule and it was very soft without much crust. Not nearly as good as we've had there before. So overall, it was Ok, but for the price, I expect a bit more. We've definitely had better evenings there, so maybe it was just a slightly off day, but it doesn't encourage us to bother going back given all the other choices downtown.

This restaurant is my favorite for both the location and the food. No matter where you sit, there is an awesome view of the marina/river. Food is excellent, and if you go early enough, it is quiet and you get the best attention from the waitstaff. We had a VIP sign on our table (my husband's birthday)!
Will be back for sure!
