Wonderful and relaxing! My husband & I enjoyed our very relaxing dinner to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary- he had the halibut & I had the duck. Both well prepared with just the right amount of light sauces (he doesn’t comment much on food but did on this one) ! We’re familiar with many halibut & salmon dishes having met & lived in coastal AK - eating these frequently. Every dish had wonderful unique tastes from the oysters appetizer to the dessert. Thank you for making the dining experience memorable for us.

I had the halibut my husband the clams. My halibut was delicious but it only came with asparagus could have use a starch, enough for me but would have been skimpy for a larger appetite. The clams were a little bland and light on the pasta. They kept binging the bread and taking it away, it would have been nice to have with the clams. Would have liked a dessert for our anniversary celebration but very limited in selection as was the entire menu. The staff did a very good job and Richard was wonderful.

Richard's never lets us down when it comes to food, quality, and service. Dining here for our annual Easter brunch for past few years (except for 2020, of course), and they are great at accommodating. Wait staff always knowledgeable of items on the menu and impeccable with their attention and service. We love the atmosphere- not over the top to distract you from what you need to focus on - delicious unique meals on the menu, great drinks, and service ! The place is small (-ish) but we don't mind it with the tall windows in view. Planning to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary here.

We checked in early (@4:45) for our 5pm reservation and told the hostess we would be at the bar. We noticed that at 5:10 that people were being seated and we had not. I had to ask to be seated and it seems if we were forgotten about. We were seated quickly and our waiter Kevin was amazing! It was our 25th wedding anniversary and we had an amazing time.
I plan on coming back.

We did have to wait an extra 15 minutes, even though we has a reservation, and ended up having to be right by the kitchen, since our reserved table wasn't ready. The food was good, though the portions were not as big as the price would suggest. The service was good. The atmosphere is nice.

The overall experience was great. When we came in a few months ago we weren’t taken back by the food but decided to give it another try and glad we did. My wife had the ravioli and I had the braised beef. Both were incredibly delicious and perfectly cooked. We were very happy with our experience and will be coming back.

The food was less than desirable. I had the paella special and it was extremely dry. I had the apple spice cake for dessert and that was also dry. Took home leftovers hoping they might be better the next day but I ended up throwing them away. Very disappointed as I have been wanting to go there for a while now. I would not recommend. The bar and drinks were good.
