I am very sad this restaurant is closing. The food and service are wonderful. The atmosphere is very relaxing, beautifully done in Christmas decor. I really hope it opens again. I would highly recommend this to anyone - it is worth the drive!

I always loved Jager Schnitzel, although only regular schnitzel was on the menu, they prepared it for a small up charge. It was one of the best I’ve ever had! We are very sad they plan the close after this year.🥲

We've been here in the past for multiple occassions under non-pandemic conditions and have always enjoyed the food, view and service.

We took a chance this past Sunday for a Birthday brunch with the limited brunch menu, and while the food was good it just wasn't the same without the food stations and the family style aspects we've enjoyed in the best.

Service was great, view was great, it was quiet; just a different dining experience.

Came for Sunday Brunch. Disappointed that the big brunch with all the food was gone but they had a large selection of entrees to choose from. The fruit cup and bakery basket was a nice touch. Good prices. Waitress was very attentive and friendly.

hadn't been out since covid hit. We expected the prices but expected more choices on the menu. Was disappointed with only one german entree at a German restaurant. Had a very scenic table since we made sure to get there early.

My Old Fashioned mixed drink was made as requested. The baked onion soup was very good and not too salty. The offering of a mini schaum torte was perfect. Just enough to finish off a great evening.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary here because we got married outside right here 5 years ago! We got a table that overlooked that space and reminisced on the day and the beauty of it. The included desert was very appreciated. Our evening was almost as magical as the day was 5 years ago. Thank you Seven Seas for a lovely evening. You did not disappoint. We will be back......

We had a 6 pm dinner reservation, but decided to eat all fresco on the patio, which also apparently meant we now had to wait in line for a table. They were so busy. After an initial "We'll be right with you" from a server, it took us more than 20 minutes to be shown to a table that had been sitting open the whole time and this may have gone on longer had I not gone back inside to get the host to advocate on our behalf. I went to the bar to get us started on drinks. Thankfully, I didn't have to serve our own food. Our server kicked in and the rest of the night - food, view and even service - was terrific.

Great place but totally under staffed and under trained.
Our waitress was running like crazy, not her fault but
Device was very slow. Sat for a long time before someone came over and then ordered drinks and she never came back and we then had a new waitress who worked very hard. No management present to manage.
This is not new, been here a few times and same problem.
Understaffed and under trained.

Our waitress was great, but had so many tables. Felt so bad that she was running everywhere. The front hostess was awful, kind of think she is an owner which is worse. Not my best experience.

We had a reservation for indoor seating. Outdoor seating is not reservable. We asked if we could wait for outdoor seating. Was told it would be 30 mins. It was 20 mins. Waitress was very attentive and pleasant. Our food order came quickly. Shrimp skewers and a salmon dish. Both cooked very well and flavorful. The salmon was excellent. Asparagus side was also cooked very well. Rice sides were fine. Beautiful setting, with live music at the outdoor seating area.
