Love the patio seating with a view of the river and the walkway. We had the Pork Osso Bucco and the Steak with Gorgonzola fondue. Both perfectly cooked and tasty with local seasonal vegetables. Will be a great place to take out-of-town guests. Can’t wait to go back!

We want to try the restaurant again, despite not having a good experience with the food this first time. We'll order seafood the next time. My coulotte steak was thick but not too firm, and the hamburger left an unpleasant taste.

I would and wouldnt recommend this place to a friend.

If someone is trying to have an intimate dinner with a date/spouse I WOULD NOT suggest this place. Im not a fan of the seating arrangement. I sat next to two people I didn't know because the seat was a long "bench like" couch with tables in front of it. My husband sat in a chair across from me and it was extremely hard to hear him because of the people sitting next to me as well as the overall noise of the place.

If someone is trying to go somewhere with a big group of people at a high energy place for some good food then I WOULD suggest this place. The food was good and the place was fancy.

We loved it but my salad was not as good as the last time I was there. I got the pecan chicken Cesar and it was not as flavorful. It was very bland.

Underwhelmed!
Beautiful setting and personable server but kitchen and barcstaff need upgrading.
Our starter bottle of pinot noir was very good.
Starter salad was fresh and flavorful.
Pizza was undercooked/not cooked in center of the pie.
We passed on ordering entrees as reviews/comments from diners at other adjoining tables were lackluster.
Bartender (Chris) didn’t know how to make a Bourbon Manhattan.
Hopefully things will improve there

The food was excellent and so was the service. Enjoyed the view of the river. The only thing that took away from the enjoyment is the noise level. I would have preferred it less noisy and a little less rock music

Only two toilets for women??? The line was always at least 7 long to use the loo. No lines at Wildfin across the street. This is a fatal flaw as far as I am concerned. You should have heard the women talk as they stood in line. They were furious.

Nice lunch. GREAT service from Amy. We all ordered different meals. My wife had turkey wrap with a salad and really enjoyed her meal. I had a gorgonzola burger and soup. Soup was very good and the burger was good. I ordered it medium rare and received it medium well to well done. The other woman ordered flat bread with figs and was not satisfied (don't know why). The other man ordered mac & cheese with crab. He felt the crab was not fresh and the cheese in the mac & cheese was of a lower quality than he expected. All drinks were OK.

All in all, the high point was eating outside looking at the river and enjoying the view. My wife and I will return but, not sure about the other couple.

It's a great location and menu. We had a shrimp ruffle pasta sauce (which we split). It was good, but very rich and we didn't finish it even though we split it - didn't include very many shrimp, but the ones in it were tasty! We probably wouldn't order it again but we will definitely go back many times.

Basically everything was okay except we had one in our party with a dairy allergy. She specifically told the wait staff to leave it off her salad. Her salad came and as she started to eat, she discovered the cheese thinly sliced at the bottom of the bowl. Unfortunately, it was hidden by all the lettuce. She had taken several bites before realizing it was there. Because it was sliced and all at the bottom, she could pick it out. The restaurant didn’t charge her, but the fact that such a simple request wasn’t done correctly, is of concern.

Nice place, they still have a lot of work to be done as far as attending to their customers, our waitress barely visited us while we were there and my wife had to keep going to get help, that's not cool. Nice view of the Columbia and the restaurant is great looking inside and out!

Food was great when they opened but has gone to pour quality. Dinner salads were not good, very skimpy on anything but the lettuce. The waitress just wanted to rush us through instead of letting us enjoy our cocktails prior to ordering dinner. Did not even mention specials, etc. There has to be more than views when it comes to restaurants.

Made online reservations for outside seating with a puppy (they’re dog friendly for outside seatings). Checked in, waited about 5 min and were seated initially near the patio outside but not outside. A few moments later we were moved to patio for puppy. Service was fast, friendly staff, and great recommendations for family (even GF options). Food and drinks were delicious! Highly recommend.

Wonderful location by the water with great drinks, wonderful food, and a fabulous place for a celebration. With the "industrial decor" the noise level is always a little more than I like, but some people thrive on that. Will return very soon.
