This place was recommended for our group. The dinner was preordered and no changes could be made. We had 17 in our group. The food was not real hot and was just ok.

Every time I travel to tacoma for business I stop at ci shenanigans for dinner. I love the salmon, blackened. I always end up with an empty plate. Prices can be a little high depending on the selection, but the food is great.

I have been many times for lunch and dinner with colleagues and friends. My firm also does our annual Holiday party, and I attend business meetings a couple times a year, in the group spaces. The food, the view and the service are all great.
