The views are beautiful. This was my first meal in Seattle and what a way to see the beauty of the city. The special of the day was salmon with potatoes and was well-prepared and delicious. They are famous for their white chocolate mousse cake...More

This restaurant was worth the long flight from Boston to Seattle. The view will take your breath away. Mirrors allow the diner across from you to see the view as well. The food is fantastic. I had the salmon and it was the best ever....More

Classic Seattle (and Portland) destination. But, leave your land-lover loved-ones at home. Only non-fish/seafood appetizer: bread basket. No non-fish specials. 6:00 pm Monday: "And oh, we're out of the chicken." $59 for 7 oz. filet mignon - good, but not their strength. My guests loved...More

Fabulous view of downtown Seattle and well worth the ferry ride. We did Sunday brunch so it was a huge spread, but very pricey.

So, the nearby hotels get a small kickback when they send you here. Food not bad, but WAY overpriced, waitresses aggressively trying to get you to spend more, and watery drinks.

There aren't many places in the world offering all you can eat oysters, dungeness crab and USDA prime! Go with an empty stomach and enjoy the excessive brunch with great views across the Sound to Seattle. Booking ahead is mandatory.

This was the best buffet brunch I have ever had. They had everything from crab, omelets, pizza, pasta, and a chocolate fondue fountain. The mimosas were good but they were not included in the brunch cost. The cost per person is $60 not including drinks....More
