My friend and I went for lunch on a rather dreary day, but that didn't matter. The view was stunning and I could only imagine how fabulous it would be on the patio overlooking the water in the summer. I had the fish tacos and they were quite tasty. Freshly charred corn and the pineapple salsa were a nice touch.

Ate here for a birthday celebration and what a great experience. The resterant is in a great location, very scenic on the bay. We made our reservation on open table and had no issues with that. We arrived early for a drink on the deck and they asked if we wanted to move our reservation up which we did. We enjoyed a nice quiet conversation on the deck with very nice views of Mt Rainier in the background. Our drinks tasted as described and were well made not too heavy or light on the alcohol. Once seated at a great table (I requested a nice view for a birthday celebration) our waitress came out and I was very happy with her service. Instead of taking guesses on wines she bought out samples and if we wanted something we only had to make eye contact to get her to come over. The food came out at good intervals and was well portioned. It was delicious and we had a very good meal. Surprisingly the atmosphere was very nice considering they were busy but it wasn't too loud and the food came out with no errors, on time and tasting great. I say this is Tacoma's other great upscale restaurant as I love El Gauchos but haven't been blown away by a lot of other spots as far as classy eateries go. Upscale is in quotations as I don't feel you'd need to dress up or anything to eat here. A nice touch was we got complementary ice cream bought out for the birthday celebration. Great place.
