Everything is super awesome just a bit too expensive so that you can eat with a view. The decision is yours but I like such places once in a while

Well we’ve come to Seattle many times during while her daughter was in school, had never been here before. Food was fine, but nothing technically challenging on the menu. Wonderful views of Seattle, and that’s what you’re paying for here. Decent food But not a great value on its own. You’re paying for the setting.

I was in Portland for the weekend and drove to Seattle to try this place. I was not disappointed at all. My cousin and I had the perfect view, everything was awesome. Just look at the view! Our plates were awesome. The server did take time to tell us about the menu specials.

Apparently woefully understaffed...Took forever to get drinks, etc. Manager finally stepped in and did a fine job of waiting on us.
I know you pay a lot for the view here, but it is still overpriced for the quality of the food. My 27.00 lobster tail was very small and overcooked. My petite filet (46.00)was also very small (5oz) at best and drowned in Bernaise sauce.

Also, 18.00 for a martini is a bit much. New York prices in Seattle

Food quality was mixed. My wife had the salmon and I had the Alaskan halibut - both were excellent. But our daughter found her fish & chips very average. Our waiter was courteous and polite enough but failed to completely clear the used entree dishes before dessert, despite requesting him twice. It was also hard to get his attention, generally.

No pun, the squid was salty so much so it was not eatable. $50 for a steak with no seasoning. The service was good and the view was wonderful. $200 for two next time I'll drive downtown and have food that I'll enjoy.
