We've eaten here several times and are never disappointed. I love the Mayan Salad and my husband had oysters. We shared their wonderful calamari. The wait staff is exceptional and very attentive. The bill adds up pretty quickly but we always enjoy the meal so it is worth it.

I had the past seafood medley, and my wife had the salmon. Both dishes were tremendous and there was no skimping on the food by the chef. From the wine and beer, to the table bread, EVERYTHING was delicious.

This is a lovely restaurant. We had a wonderful lunch when we went. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. It was nice to be able to view the water from our table.

Very innovative cooking. Not too much fushion, so many overdo it but not here. We enjoyed New Orleans style fried (fresh as they get) oysters and prime rib steak. The starter salad was excellent as well. The service was friendly and professional.

Lovely location looking out to the River & bridge The food is better than average, but not a super inspiring menu. Price is a touch high for what you get.

I've had lunch here, but I prefer dinners. The Hungarian Dill Soup is so unusual and so good. I usually have the fish in parchment (whatever it's called). It's just so good and so one-of-a-kind.

We went for lunch in the pouring rain. Got seated right away at a partial window table (a column in the middle of two large windows blocked some of the views of the bay. Salad, chowder, and bread arrived quickly and was amazing! The clam and muscles chowder was almost lobster bisque style. Awesome flavor with just a bit of... More

Stopped for lunch while traveling through Astoria and fell in love. Nice ambience, friendly and accommodating staff and fantastic fare! I thoroughly enjoyed my ham, pear and caramelized sandwich, along with a tasty raspberry lemon drop. Wish I could eat here every day!

The view at this place is stunning and plenty of windows for a few pictures. The food was good (Fish and Chips and Turkey Sandwich.) Staff was good a little forgetful about refills and we were basically the only people in the restaurant. The menu is more suitable for a fancier palate and a wine drinker. But overall great place....and... More
