    Eat the seafood. Eat all the seafood. Ceviche, lobster chowder, soft shell crab, all soooo good. Bonus points for extensive wine list and great desserts too.

    Wonderful selection of tasty cuisine. Everything is great to share! Great wine choices and pricing system (half off on Wednesdays) I don't even like bread pudding but here it is beyond divine!

    Great outdoor seating, excellent people watching on the weekends, good for a drink and miscellaneous snacks, the food is OK, there are significantly better options within a stones throw.

    Spacious restaurant, with outdoor seating along waterfront of Jack London square. The Pan-American food is simple but delicious!

    Despite the lack of sangria, awesome place! 9 plates and 3 desserts: none disappointed. Must try the peppers, Pacific King Cod ceviche with plantain chips, and bread pudding.
