Enjoyed the lovely, rustic reception area on the 2nd floor of The Red Building, overlooking the Bistro with great views of The Cannery Hotel. Staff was friendly & attentive. The buffet-style food was ready on-time with the Asian-inspired cabbage salad our favorite.

Great view though the deck is very windy and can be cold. Closest restaurant to Cannery Pier Hotel. Friendly staff, good wine list. Quiche and Hungarian mushroom soup were excellent.
