Wine tasting was a riot. Whales entertained us for hours while we tasted the best of California wines. Servers were professional and knowledgeable. Went back every day for lunch. Flatbread pizzas were delicious.

With Cannery Row over supplied by garish tourist traps, eateries and bars we were relieved to find ourselves up stairs here. Beautiful views, excellent wine and craft beer choices. Plus good food and service.
