Thats where it ends. The service is terribly slow and although the food is good it's way over priced. $115.00 for two people for dinner sharing a salad and sharing a desert.

Nine of us went to the Eastside for my birthday dinner, and I'm so glad we did. Everything was delicious, including hoisin spare ribs, potato-crusted mahi mahi, seared tuna, and huli huli chicken (enormous portion of chicken - enough to feed two). But the highlights...More
