A large group of us had lunch here to celebrate a birthday yesterday and all of us were impressed with the food and the service! The birthday girl said the the menu had been updated recently and we were all happy with the choice of selections! They provided the birthday guest with a complimentary desert, which we all shared and... More

I went for a Sunday brunch, and I wouldn't go anywhere else in Redding now. The price is not dissimilar for brunch but the quality and service is elite. I would love to justify going there for dinner and cocktails but as yet I haven't tried it. A fantastic experience that reminded me that high end service exists!

We ate here for our anniversary and were very happy with every aspect of the restaurant. It is a very upscale restaurant in a great location overlooking the Sacramento River. (Unfortunately we were here in January, so it was too cold and dark to enjoy that aspect of it, but we look forward to coming back during the summer.) The... More

From the moment you enter this resturant you feel as if you're going to have great food. The restaurant is beautiful and has a special view of the Sacramento River. The LD lights hanging outside on the patio which is also very beautiful make the occasion even more special. It's as if you are looking at the stars and the... More

We have eaten at this restaurant a couple of times and have yet to have a good meal. The setting / view is very nice but the food hasn't measured up. My wife had a salmon special that was just ok and I had the $21 hamburger and the meat tasted off. It all looked great and the service was... More

A nice place for a higher price. The food is very good, so I do enjoy making this my special place. And if the weather permits, you can't beat the outdoor dining and fire pits, the view is fantastic! Sometimes the service can be slow slow slow, but typically it's fair. I still would recommend it.

If you want a great view and great decor inside and don't mind paying the price, this is a great place to go. If you want to eat, not so much. The menu is very short, the food was alright but the servings small. The prices were so high I thought I was eating in a French restaurant.

Food was good at a good price, but the views from of the river and Mt. Shasta from the patio were spectacular. I could have sat out on the patio all day.

We have been back three times since the menu/chef change two years ago. We love the view from the patio enough to occasionally come back, but the food is, at best, average. Please reconsider going back to what worked.
