Enjoyed the wine selection and sunset choices. Service was a bit slow, but capable! The fresh produce added to a tasty meal. Hard to beat the location!
Easily the best bang-for-buck, high-grade-fusion meal I’ve ever had. We started with the Seafood Martini (lobster, crab, shrimp, caviar, and sweet vermouth cream) followed by Oysters Rockefeller, done right. At first I thought the Duck Prosciutto Salad could have offered a touch more duck, but once you factor in the perfect balance of shaved fennel, watercress, figs, gorgonzola, and candied... More
Was visiting friends in the area they invited us to dinner at their favorite spot. The food service and atmosphere did not disappoint. Several unique items on the menu which we experimented with and enjoyed each one from the Duck Salad to the Ravioli and Prawns, Diver Scallops. All we prepared to perfection. The wine list was very diverse and... More
4 of us came for my wife's birthday lunch. Appetizers of the Seafood Martini and Calamari were very good. Tasty, and well prepared. The service was very good. The server knew that it was my wife's birthday and at the outset she made it clear that my wife was being treated to desert by the restaurant. We felt welcome. My... More
We are here on a non-busy Tuesday evening. Drawn by very positive reviews, we anticipated a nice meal. Unfortunately, we ended up being very disappointed. First, the service was amazingly slow. Our server was friendly & pleasant, but there were far too many gaps during which she totally neglected us. Second, the food was, on the whole, pretty decent. A... More
We are so pleased that we chose the Dockside Bistro for our final dinner on an incredible trip to the Sound. Everything was perfect from the very garlicky Ceasar salad to the perfectly cooked scallops and halibut. A little on the pricy side but well worth it. The only thing that would have made it better was being able to... More
There are several restaurants near the Olympia Farmer's Market, but this is my favorite. Like the other restaurants nearby it offers good views out over the marina, but in a somewhat more intimate setting. The menu offers a range of dishes to suit all tastes. The seafood is fresh and expertly cooked. The wine list is excellent, allowing for good... More
When a single woman comes into a resturant, that is where you can see just what level of service they really deliver. And I am so impressed. The food is outstanding, the wine list in inspired and the staff is really something. How can you top that?
First time here and went because of the many excellent reviews on here. When we entered the building no one was there to great us. We weren't sure we came in the right door. Finally one of the waiters saw us and came over. The service was average. The waiter was neither rude or outstanding. The crab cakes for our... More
If you are only going to eat in one restaurant in Olympia, this is your choice. Excellent menu, very good service, and one of the best wine lists in town. I once tasted a wine there that was so good I had them order a case for me. Its not very large and has a view of the harbor.
