"Great food for special occasion. Favorite dessert the coconut cake. Like the validated parking as well. The location is great and views of Canada are awesome.  Ambiance is perfect. For fresh seafood this is the place to go. So far favorite downtown restaurant for hubby and I."

Yelp Review

"Had dinner just before the Christmas tree lighting downtown and what a way to kick off a great evening. Calvin was our server and seemed to know what we wanted before we even knew! I had the lobster pot pie (not on the menu) and I think it is my new favorite dish. Couldn't have been better."
