    Nice seafood- oyster, fish and octopus! Nice cocktails too. Make sure you have a reservation, wait time could be very long.

    Don't trust OpenTable. Try your luck without reservation, it won't disappoint.

    If you have a boat, they have a dock!

    Overpriced. Over loud. Under cooked. More trendy than good.

    This is one of those hidden gems that is worth the effort to get into. Beautiful views and amazing food. One of the best oyster bars in town with a cocktail list to match.

    Radishes & goat butter are a refreshing and crunchy delight! Paired with oysters and a good drink = #foodheaven

    Great outdoor fire pit and views of the city. Definitely get the almond gâteau.

    Daniel Tewfik · June 3
  • Jacob G.

    Get here early to get a table with a view. Order the oysters, manila clam dip and the trout.

  • Oremo O.

    If you plan on checking out the outside patio on a nice summer day get there early or you will never get a table.

    Sit at the bar for an amazing view. The beets were delicious. So was the quail.

    Allison Yu · April 18

    Awesome new place right on the water. Friendly service. Oysters and the chicken hash BOOM!

    Sit at the oyster bar and order all the things. We went with four or five appetizers and smaller plates, plus a dozen oysters. Glutinous maybe, delicious yes.

    Clam dip and potato chips

    sheela tallman · August 28, 2014
  • Meredith M.

    Come for brunch, and reserve your table for dinner. It's that good. Get the clam dip any time of day. Andrew Knowlton's BA review was spot on. No detail was missed, the space is impeccably designed.

    Meredith Meyer · August 25, 2014

    Amazing patio

    There is a bar on the water you can go to while you wait - they'll let you know when your table is ready.

    Andre Wyatt · August 18, 2014

    Loved the fried cheese!

    Take a seat at the bar and spend hours looking at all the delightfully absurd details of the boat-shaped bar while you drink.

    Serious Eats · May 13, 2014
  • Haley B.

    Order the caramel pot de creme & the chocolate olive oil cake & eat them together in the same bite.

    Haley B · May 4, 2014
  • Erin L.

    Do not miss the Brussels sprouts. So lemony and gorgeous. The Greek beans are also wonderful. 

    Erin Lynch · April 26, 2014
  • Scott R.

    Boar ribs with verjus was a real outstander.

    Scott Rose · April 23, 2014
  • Eric M.

    Excellent outdoor dining for a warm sunny afternoon! Slightly over priced drinks, but the location can't be beat.

    Eric McCarthy · April 17, 2014
  • Katie B.

    Very cute place. Good for a date night our lunch on a nice day. Outdoor seating and fire pit look fun.

    Mediterranean-inspired food like halibut crudo and wood-baked gigante beans in a whimsical, beautiful dining room that was nominated for a 2014 James Beard for restaurant design. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Westward serves a brunch menu item called "Greek Vaso". Order it! The granola in it is heavenly crack. Plus, it's gluten-free. Win and double win!

    Valentina Vitols · March 23, 2014
  • d b.

    Fricking awesome. Get the Brussels, the grilled cheese, and something fishy. Also, the chicken is amazeballs.

    Moroccan Fish Stew

    Denise Dy · February 12, 2014
  • Riona M.

    Brussels sprouts all the way. For vegans, they'll leave off the cheese.

    Riona MacNamara · January 9, 2014
  • Corey d.

    The seafood stew is to die for. But make sure to order the clam dip + homemade potato chips first.

    Corey duBrowa · December 28, 2013

    Fantastic Mediterranean food along with a spectacular lakeside location.

    R Rajan · December 19, 2013
  • Ruchika G.

    Great bar and outdoor fire put with views of Lake Union and downtown. All the food and oysters were delicious, get the halloumi and octopus!

    FYI - the interns all share 1 glock

    The new brunch menu hits it hard with winners like the wood-oven fired Montreal-style bagel with salmon gravlax and labneh and the bloody mary with savory dill aquavit. Save room for bread pudding.

    Eater · October 31, 2013
  • Taline E.

    Great views of the lake. Modern Greek/Mediterranean cuisine. Flawless service. Get the hallumi and grilled sardines.
