The food is good portion (ie not the American load your plate up full), great variety (salads, veg, meat) in a healthy proportion, service was good and attentive. The view on a few occasions was gorgeous. During the winter, the fog from the river made it impossible to see but that didn't take any from the excellent food.

Went to this place after reading the reviews. We arrived on time, only to wait for our table. Some mix up, they were also having a few Christmas parties. Should have known then it was going to be bad. Our table was nice. Our server not so nice. Not to sure why she became a server, she was very rude. It took 10 minutes to get water and wine, not a problem, but then to wait over an hour for a meal..... I think not. Our meal was just so borderline ok. Cold, and not very tasty. I really do want to try this place again in the summer, perhaps the view and deck make up for the horrible service.

Hadn't eaten here in years and decided to try for a birthday dinner. Very tasty food although the seafood dinner was expensive for what you got. Biggest hit was the linguine in tomato sauce. Will definitely go again.

Our server Allison, made our evening here a pleasure. She is pleasant, polite, knowledgable, and has a good sense of humor. We wanted to take our time being there and she didn't make us feel rushed at all. Some restaurants do that and I find it annoying. We chose a good night, as it wasn't overly crowded or noisy. I like that they have separate areas and know where to seat which kind of groups. Overall my date and I were very pleased here! (food was fantastic)
