A nice place for happy hour too - well-stocked bar in a happening part of town.

Parking around the restaurant was challenging. There was a lot just across the street with a cost of $9 for the entire evening. Flat rate, no exceptions. This was still our first afternoon in Seattle and I was not familiar enough with the area to have been searching much further for other parking.
We were seated at exactly 5:45 with prompt service inquiring about drinks. The restaurant offered a lengthy wine list and the waiter was very helpful in making some suggestions. As we were all making similar choices, he reccommended a specific bottle of wine that would be more cost-efficient than individual glasses and would probably be acceptable to all four of us. He was correct.
We ordered two appetizers to share between the four of us. The calimari was cooked wonderfully, not too greasy and the spring rolls were just right.
The dinner menus are typed up daily, based on the fresh fish available. I selected an assorted seafood offering served over pasta. My wife had mahi mahi. The food was served in a reasonable amount of time on very large plates. In addition to the fish, my wife had serving of mashed potatoes, seasoned with herbs for an excellent taste and steamed vegetables. The dinner plates were oversized with the food centered in the middle of the plates.
For once, my wife ate just about everything on her plate. She usually has enough left over for me to have a fair sampling of her dinner. Not this time.
We decided to try a dessert and as I should have expected, my wife chose the apple crisp for us to share. She always picks that dessert. Never the dark chocolate or deep rich brownie that her cousin had. No. She had to go with something more healthy, like fruit. However, when the dessert arrived and I tasted it, I was pleased with her selection. The apples were tart and the sauce was sweet, all under a large scoop of rich ice cream. She was so busy visiting with her cousin that I think she only got three bites. I polished off that dessert quickly.
The food was superb, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was terrific. The only issue I had with this restaurant was the quantity of food. I'm usually full when I leave a restaurant, but I wasn't this time. Fortunately, we purchased some fresh fruit and snacks at the market earlier in the day, so I filled up with that food when we returned to the hotel.
