I have genuinely eaten better salmon and potatoes on a flight. The potatoes were reheated and bad. The salmon was not fresh enough. Good wine list and view but this place needed to close.

We've enjoyed the restaurant largely for its scenic waterfront location. That latter quality led to the restaurant's November 30 closure. Construction is soon beginning on a massive residential development on lands surrounding the restaurant site.

Went for a midweek Birthday dinner after a long time. The location is great, on the water, watching the ferry and boats. The service was slack and not polished. You'd expect much more as a minimum standard for a restaurant of this calibre. Food was...More
