The server got our orders wrong a couple of times but rectified the mistake. The wasabi potatoes were overwhelming to the person who ordered it. The appetizers, entrees, and dessert were wonderful.

The food was not good, a very dissapointing experience. The clam chowder tasted like clam juice with lemons, I couldn't even eat it. The stuffed salmon arrived still frozen in the center. The stuffing of crab and shrimp was minimal and cold. I sent the plate back and it came back warm, still not edible in the center. The mashed potatoes were a lump of potatoes, not like any mashed potatoes I've ever seen and cold. The sorbet was like frozen corn syrup and hard as a rock. The couple next to us sent back their plate and didn't want it back. There seemed to be a bread shortage, people were asking for bread and it never came? We had a bad experience several years ago, but thought we would give them another try. It's nothing like the restaurant in Berkeley, too bad.

Service was a bit on the slow side. It took over 1/2 hour to get our food after we ordered it. The waitress seemed to be 'away' from the dining room more than other waitress. Seems like the other customers were getting more attention... sadly... for us.
We were celebrating my birthday, with was obvious since we used my Birthday Reward. But the waitress didn't even offer a birthday dessert. Although she might not have since she said she felt that we were in a hurry since we had asked about the status of our order earlier. Anyhow, she never even offered dessert to us (nor even a little something to celebrate my birthday).
We were a little disappointed and decided to leave anyway since we wanted to get our car out of the parking garage before our 2 hour validation limit expired. So we ended up driving to somewhere else for dessert.

I recently enjoyed a great business lunch there. I had the scallops and a Mondavi Sauvignon Blanc. I'll certainly be returning in the future. The staff was incredibly attentive.

Everything was good; food, friendly waitress, cleanliness. We ordered the Special dinner with salad, steak, shrimp and veggies and dessert-all done to perfection. The only thing was the noise. There was a large group seated next to us and they were very noisy!

Food & service was excellent. Need to put a wall near the door to block the wind tunnel and it wasn’t a windy day.

Food was good but service was terribly slow. Soup and salad were served seconds before some main courses and in some cases after the main course.

The restaurant was relatively empty and several managers or supervisors were milling about, seemingly not doing anything.

Very mixed - Martini was OK; Oyster's Rockefeller were good; salad with grilled salmon was OK; filet with two small lobster tails was a disaster...lobster tails way over cooked - came out soggy and tasteless, and the filet that was ordered medium rare came out extremely rare, really just seared and served. Got the feeling that the chefs/cooks had little if any kitchen experience. The services, however, was top notch - friendly, efficient and helpful.

Went here for my mom's 73rd birthday. They were able to accomodate a party of 13 which included an infant in a stroller. Food and drink was good, service was good. My son didn't really enjoy his burger. My only disappointment is that I was told a molten lava cake would be provided for birthday recipient with the words Happy Birthday written on the plate. Instead, a scoop of ice cream was provided with no Happy Birthday written. I would go here again, but probably only during happy hour for the holiday season when Christmas in the Park is also happening.

My request for rare salmon Caesar arrived poor quality fish burnt to a crisp. The salad lettuce was a disgrace to California. We had to hunt down a server to order as well as to complain about poor quality in a restaurant with few clients.
