Great service and a super ambiance. Our party of 5 had a great meal and a very good bottle of wine. The service was super and the expo team got the food auction right. We would recomend this for dinner and would visit again .

This was one of the best meals I have eaten. We went with some friends and each one of us shared the sentiment. Our friends had the halibut and scallops and my husband had a steak. I had the vegan ravioli. As a vegan for...More

Excellent food, attentive service, and a relaxed but classy atmosphere make this the best dining experience of the island. The courses are of moderate size and well plated.

Third time here, disappointed. First time, a charm, second-so so. After this time, we won't be returning. Their trendiness has cost them and our selections this time were not up to par. I think they are more into the drinks & appetizers crowd, which is...More

The place is a bit pricey but the bread is delicious and the salad portions are generous. Lots of chicken on the Cobb salad and fresh, crisp lettuces. Local Catalina Island waitress provided lots of insight into life and activities on the island.
