This is indeed a fine restaurant and every time my wife and I passed near Morro Bay we patronized it. On Aug. 14 we were hosting a European executive and wanting to show her the best of the USA we took her to this restaurant where we were seated right next to a dog. The dog was supposed to be a service dog, sitting with a very young people that obviously had no need for any service. But even if they did, a well-managed restaurant staff would seat a dog a bit away from other diners. That dog was so close that it eventually brushed against my leg triggering a complaint that spoiled our overpriced, yet in all other respects classy dinner.

We had a group of six for a dinner at Window on the Water recently. Every dish served was excellent and the service was great without being overbearing. I found that the food while not inexpensive was so good that the value is definitely there because of the outstanding quality. I had the Caesar Salad with White Anchovy and Seared Ahi entree. I will be returning for sure!

Recommended by locals-did not disappoint. Showed up at 5 on Saturday night with later reservation. Seated right next to window. Unusual, but good broth-based clam chowder. Great wine list.
