Had to stop in for Happy Hour. Great Bar with cool Polynesian Props. Extensive Drink list and Appetizer list. I went classic with a Mai Tai to drink and Pu Pu Platter Appetizer. Friendly staff and great San Francisco Bay Views.

Beautiful views and the food is great. This is our favorite place to celebrate important occasions. Their fish dishes are excellent, especially the sea bass that is prepared Chinese style.
