Great Food but Slow Service

If you are not in a hurry and want some great seafood, this is the place for you. All of the food on the menu is fresh and the menu is adjusted daily to let the customer know what is in season. They have a wide variety of fish from around the U.S. from Alaska to Hawaii. Also save room for dessert, because it is out of this world. Whenever I am here, I am seated quickly but after I order I always had to wait quite a while to be served my salad

and wait a bit more for my meal and wait some more for the dessert menu and finally the dessert. The service is friendly but very slow so if you want to get in and eat in about 30 to 45 minutes this is not the place to go, but if you have no time constraints this place is must.

Great place for a special occasion

We had a small party (12 people) for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary here, and it was really quite wonderful. The food was very good - not overly fancy but well prepared and tasty enough to satisfy this 'burgh native-turned-California-foodie! The wine list was decent and everything was very reasonably priced, and of course the view from Mt. Washington was spectacular (which was nice, because the decor is a tad garish). Staff couldn't have been

friendlier. We had a lovely evening all around!
