A fun atmosphere...great bar, view, food. Had dinner there on December 30, 2015. Server (Jaimie) was incredible. A very busy night and she still found time to make regular visits to our table and engage in personal conversations.

Swift water has good food, maybe even better than Portals, and it has a very good selection of wine. Service is very good also. They also have outdoor concerts in the summer, which are usually cover bands and are very good.

This was my 3rd trip to the restaurant. I live locally and try to use as many local establishments as possible, but our choice in the area is limited. The good stuff. Our waiter was wonderful and service was excellent! It is a beautiful restaurant with a very good vibe, but this is where the good ends! We travel for... More

One word sums of our evening and experience at Hoist House.....Perfect. We met some friends celebrating their birthday and anniversary for wine tasting and then dinner. The service was on point from the Cellar to dinner and they never missed a beat. Suggestions from their happy hour, their knowledge of the menu or wines, and their service was impeccable. I... More

Walking into this building is warm, happy, and beautiful. I'm very fond of their upper tier wines. There's no place I'd rather be than sitting at one of the firepits on a beautiful day. The owners have done an outstanding job with the structure, the wine, and the warmest of welcomes. I don't understand why they haven't brought on a... More

This is our second time to this restaurant and both times, we had an amazing meal and service. They do an excellent job with fish. This time my husband and I shared the 32 oz steelhead. Sounds like a lot, but wasn't. My friend had the sea bass and wouldn't share, because it was so good. Service is always excellent,... More

Overlooking the golf courses, this west coast high ceiling beam structure is attractive. I had a gluten free steak-tip sandwich (sans bread) with a salad, which looked tasty and was great. All 7 of us were pleased with our selections. Service was good and the place was clean.

Took eight of us here to celebrate and everyone really enjoyed their meals and desert. Several of us had the Kasu Sake Sea Bass. All of us really thought it was top notch, super delicious. We split two Gelato Flights amongst us all for a nice sweet finish to our meal.

When we walked in we were seated very quickly. The service was nice and the food came within fifteen minutes of ordering. I ordered the chicken guacamole sandwich, and it tasted delicious! There were many different and unique components to the sandwich, such as the jalepeño bacon, the grilled chicken and the guacamole, which was served on a crispy pretzel... More

This is a place I take guests and it never disappoints. We typically come for lunch. Their flatbreads are ample and delicious. Three served 4 people, with enough for leftovers. But best of all, they had flights of wine that were outstanding, both for taste and value. A flight of five full glasses of wine for only $14--we ordered two... More
