The food is what you want to focus on. The setting on the river is a nice addition. For a seafood restaurant, I thought they could of had a few more choices, but I had the Halibut which was a featured special. Was not disappointed. Service was excellent as well. I would definitely return when visiting Portland again.

We visited on July 4 evening. We had great weather. I had some kind of 4th of July special of BBQ and fish and sides. Others had fish. The food was well prepared, the service was good and the view was very nice. All in all a very good experience. Not quite 'fine' dining, but definitely a step above casual dining in both food and service. If you plan to sit outside, consider a jacket in the evening as you are right on the river.

The brunch here is incredible!!! Buffet style with just about anything you can imagine. Made to order crepes, omelets, and pasta, eggs benedict, wffles, pancakes, pastries, prime rib, oysters, prawns, crab, and a huge dessert section including a chocolate fountain. If you can't find something you like here, you don't like food. The restaurant also has beautiful views of the river.

This is not just food, and busy as they are they know how to serve their customers. The prices reflect all this. This is a special place for special occasions such as this warm summer evening that brought many diners out. Our waiter was helpful making recommendations and aspiring to serve us with what he really thought would please us.
Return? Yes.
Recommend? Yes.

The View is splendid and the service is great. Wish the food was better- in our case, we had the italian crusted halibut- loved it, and the large shellfish appetizer which was ok, but marred by less than fresh dungeness and snow crab. Being a northwestern native, and accustomed to fresh dungeness (the best crab in the world) this was old, texture was poor, and overly salty. The oysters were good, ceviche was good, the prawns were good but the crab really marred the experience for me.
