The food was - nothing spectacular or memorable. Very friendly and efficient service. Roomy inside with comfortable distance between tables.

So...great location across from the Olympic Sport Center, contemporary looking restaurant, and nice staff EXCEPT a couple of odd things that surprised me for a somewhat upscale restaurant. The restaurant opens at 5pm, we had reservations and were promptly seated at 5:30pm, told the specials, and when we all decided on the prime rib special that night were told the kitchen ran out of it. I find that odd a half hour after the restaurant opens, with only 3 tables full as did other diners there that night. But, what really annoyed me was how UNaccomodating the chefs were about making even a minor change to their entrees. For example, my wife ordered a Salmon entree that came over spinach (salad type), she asked if she could have it over cooked spinach and the waitress said no unless she wanted to buy it as a side. At $22.00 I think that's a fair substitute to accomodate. She then asked instead of potatoes if she could have a vegetable again told "no way." My daughter orders Filet Mignon that comes with mashed potatoes, she politely asks if she could have a baked potato instead, the waitress tells her depends on the chef's mood. Needless to say it came with mashed, and when asked what why, she replies the chef was too busy. REALLY? that's inexcusable, rude, and obnoxious. I reminded her that we weren't in a diner, and the restaurant should be more accommodating to their guests. She agreed and felt guilty about the attitude of the chef, so much that she refilled our wine glasses for no charge. So.. the food was OK, but when simple requests get turned down in a nice restaurant, it's time for the Chef to re-evaluate how he wants to run his restaurant. I won't be back!
