First of all, the place looks fine from the outside. Very clean and lots of parking. But yes, once inside, the atmosphere is great. Lots of spacing, soft but uplifting music, good lighting. Then the service starts, and from the first contact, you just know everyone loves working there, and all have received excellent training. Courteous, friendly, helpful, never overbearing. Our server was Mary, but my observation was that all servers were of the same caliber. Our cocktails were perfectly prepared. Stuffed mushroom appetizer was flavorful and plentiful, and not salty (nothing was). Both side salads were a cut above. I had the Cioppino and my wife had pink prawns with risotto, a special. Both were just excellent. I marveled that my tomato stock was so deep red and rich, and yet still tasted like fresh tomatoes. I have no idea how this is possible, and I've tried cooking it many ways. It is not tomato paste, which would be too sweet. We speculated that the stock must have been cooking for at least a couple days... Dessert was huckleberry bread pudding, with real Idaho or W. Montana berries. Just perfect. I would like to go back many times and have the entire menu. It's that good. As for cost, you get what you pay for. You can see the prices on-line. They are justified by all aspects of this restaurant, and so was our above-normal tip. So happy to have this restaurant in Olympia.
