    My wife and I went to celebrate Valentine's Day and we both love seafood. My wife had the Sablefish and I had the Alderwood Sockeye with crab cakes a dessert to die for was the Ravioli cheesecake with peach compote. Jessica was so very helpful as we explored the amazing menu. As I said we love seafood so the choices were difficult as everything looked like a wonderful taste sensation. We were not disappointed and were wonderfully pleased as everything met our needs. Jessica helped us select our choices and were pleased with our dinner, drinks, and dessert.

They even waited until we drove back and unlocked the door to return it. Much appreciated. Over and above. Highly recommend and will be back. Thank you to your Team.

    We love the ambiance and of course the view is amazing however the salmon was undercooked. We were never asked how well we wanted our fish cook and I’ve had salmon more than once and have never been asked how well I want my fish cooked and never thought to ask but it is usually cooked through at least unless specified as being seared like tuna. For that unfortunately I have to give them a 3 on the food even though the desert was amazing! Hopefully this was just a one off and we would definitely go back.
