Fodor's Review

Contemporary and seasonal Mediterranean and Californian cuisine, and huge floor-to-ceiling windows and an outdoor deck overlooking the river are the attractions of this popular restaurant that's designed to resemble a vintage steamship warehouse. Consider dining here for lunch or brunch, when you can enjoy the beautiful water views. The food is unfussy and consistently good—burgers with rosemary fries, Baja-style fish tacos with pineapple-papaya salsa, Dungeness crab and shrimp Louie salad. The big draw here, however, is the ambience.
