Three of us dropped in for lunch on a weekday. The place is a bit hidden away, but very comfortable when you settle in. Slate cafe tables, attentive service, a simple cafe menu. She had the chicken sandwich and I had the pork and onion sandwich, tomato bisque soup. Crisp bread, fine mayonnaise, lovely meats in both sandwiches. Vinaigrette and... More

8 girlfriends went to Boat Street for breakfast and they sat us no problem. The coffee was great, food was fresh and wonderful and service was good as well. We had to ask for more coffee but believe it was because our waiter was about to bring our food out. A little pricey but believe we paid for quality food.... More

Another amazing dinner here last evening! The food and service are flawless. If you go a bit early, the happy hour (5-6) is a sweet way to begin the evening. I would categorize the menu as French/American, with a wine list featuring lovely, affordable French wines.

The only downside to our visit was we waited over an hour before we got any food. I don't mind waiting for an excellent meal but at least provide something to nibble on with the wine or beer. We did the price fixe menu and began with Taramsolata - Capers - Onion - Dill – Sea Wolf Rye (they didn't... More

Found this place by accident, but glad we did. Quirky location with the restaurant split into 2 rooms of what looks like a former warehouse. Menu was limited, but had some great brunch and lunch options. Clearly a focus on the seasonal and local. I had the duck Benedict, another friend had the steelhead and, to be honest, I can't...

Earlier in the month I had reason to have a family gathering, with family coming from Europe and The East Coast. These are people who like good food and some them have experienced the best the world has to offer. My family is the local branch so we are not formal people. I wanted to find a place that would...

Great food and fantastic experience, food was good but plates small and expensive. Nice funky atmosphere but ritzy style and those small artsy plates

We visited the Olympic Sculpture park and found this restaurant nearby. There was not an easy path to get from the park to the restaurant, but the meal was worth it. Service and food was excellent and reasonably priced. Highly recommended!

Met a friend at the Boat Street. A little difficult to locate, it's down a ramp-way and to the right. It was a beautiful warm Saturday morning and we decided to sit on the patio. Enjoyed a light breakfast with fresh strawberry scone and egg white omelet with ham. Tasty. Shared the small drip coffee...STRONG! Good service, tasty food and... More

Had Mother's Day Brunch. French Provincial food with a Pacific Northwest flair. Menu was diverse enough for a brunch that everyone was happy and well fed. One of the best Bread Puddings I have had in a long time. Wait staff very polite and efficient. I would definitely go there again.
