The Depot Restaurant - Seaview features casual fine dining offering a Chef's Table to watch owner Chef Michael Lalewicz perform his magic from a display kitchen. The covered heated deck adds outdoor seating. A northwest and international wine list offers 16 wines by the glass, five microbrews and a hard cider on-tap. This 132 year old train station from the peninsula's Clamshell Railroad feels like a French Bistro especially when seated at the 9 seat counter reminding one of the Orient Express. Northwest Palate claims "Lalewicz has food angels in the kitchen" and food writer Gerry Frank of the Oregonian declares "the Depot is one of the best Dinner Houses in the Northwest"

    Outstanding evening!! A lovely restaurant with a cozy vibe and interesting history. My husband and I had a delicious meal starting with the french onion soup. I had the clams bucatini which was delicious and my husband had one of the "specials" of the evening which was Ling cod served with a porcini cream sauce and it was fabulous. Dessert was on the house as I was celebrating my 60th birthday!! Our server was Don and he was very cordial and made great recommendations. I would dine here again in a heartbeat....Highly recommend!!

    Our third visit since moving to the area 7 weeks ago. Have always eaten inside although the outdoor patio looks inviting. We have tried two different red wines, both around $20/bottle and very good. Appetizers are small but most enjoyable and you can have them and still have plenty of room for dinner, so go ahead and try one! The nightly specials have been worth wonderful. Fresh tuna one night and local ling cod another night. Off the menu we have had the 7 oz. steak Killian done to perfection and the duck with a crispy skin and lovely rice with cranberries. Make reservations in advance, if possible, it has limited seating but oh so worth it.

    Had reservations but didn’t like the seating by the door. Ambience not very romantic. Reserved a while ago and said it was our anniversary but no mention of it. Food was good but portions were small. Overall value a 2 out of 5

    We have eaten at the depot many times, however this time it warrants a review. Our waitress was busy as she could be, but still found time to make us important and thought of. She had every excuse to make excuses but did not. I'm an old fashioned consumer and huge fan. I've never ever had a better old fashioned then from our bartender. The hostess was helpful and polite and it was SLAMMED in addition to a huge bachelor party. Great job all!

    Such an inviting restaurant with fantastic ambiance. The menu was varied to please everyone with a nice wine list as well. Finding a family favorite wine on the list was an added bonus. Celebrating a special occasion, the complementary dessert was very much appreciated. The service was spot on. Thank you so much.

    Atmosphere great. Service great. Food very disappointing. Bland, and the pan fried/rock fish tasted like they were prepared with overused oil....salad was good but sides also lacked. Hopefully it was just a bad night for them. Tarter sauce for oysters very off. Not sure what was used. Two dinners, two cocktails 100.00 and some change.

    Nothing but wonderful things to say about The Depot, their staff, service, and food. Top quality ingredients paired thoughtfully and served friendly. The peninsula deserves at least one fine dining establishment. We’re stoked they have it.

    This is a little off the main drag, I found it online. It sounded intriguing so we decided to try it as a belated anniversary dinner. We definitely weren’t disappointed! Although we had to book a very early dinner time, there was a line of people waiting for them to open the doors. Drinks were excellent, a great wine selection, and a wide variety of dinner items, although a fairly small menu. My husband had the 14 ounce ribeye and I had the clams with pasta. Both entrees were large, far too much for us to eat for one meal. I made a delicious pasta chowder from my leftovers for dinner the next night and we’ll share the steak with some salad and veggies tomorrow night. To top off a perfect meal, they brought us an unbelievable chocolate mousse for dessert in honor of our anniversary. Through it all, our service was impeccable. I highly recommend this place!

    We have been dining at The Depot for the last 13 years as part of an annual vacation. The food is excellent. We’ve had our kids with us since they were <2 years old and have always had excellent, welcoming service. The Oysters ‘Scargot, ribeye, chowder, seafood, desserts and more are all stellar.

    Excellent food and environment. Service had minor challenges on the night, but the effort and attentiveness was good. Busser needs a small tray, and I'll leave it at that. It's a polite and professional staff, so I think service is usually top-notch here. The entrees are the best around. Dungeness crab Mac n Cheese is a favorite. Clam chowder is the best I've had in a long time. Locally caught tuna was delicious. And the peach cobbler on special was other worldly. We never felt rushed and it's a warm welcome, to go with an upbeat crowd. I highly recommend it and we will go again, when visiting Seaview.
