Wonderful seafood restaurant right on Puget Sound. Creative entrees, salads, and a good wine list with reasonable pricing. Recommend reservations an hour before sunset, so you can see the spectacular views of the sunset over the mountains. A bit out of downtown ($17 Uber each...More

This is a great place to watch a sunset! Seated promptly and staff was very accommodating. Drinks came out promptly and food was good. My halibut was quite tasty but less than "hot". Rest of the crew enjoyed their meal and the experience.

Located on Puget Sound, you are at the waters edge. Truly a scenic view. Part of the shipping channel with ships from all over the world. Their seafood is outstanding. Other offerings are very good too. Valet Parking.

Headed to Seattle?? This is a fine dinning experience for sure. Worth any wait, well known so expect crowds at peak times. We elected to sit outside over the water...excellent choice. Wait staff was spot on and courteous, and took order in timely fashion. Food...More
