Will come back? For the Crab bisque yes
What I ate:

Crab Bisque
  • 8.5/10
  • There was a good amount of crab
  • It was slightly spicy
  • Creamy and luscious – flavours were great
  • Downside – somewhat salty

Whole Wheat Vegetable Ciabatta
  • 6/10
  • Fries were nice and crunchy but way too salty
  • The ciabatta was also too salty probably due to too many sundried tomatoes

French Onion Bowl
  • 8/10
  • Quite nice – there was lots of onions inside providing that sweetness
  • Lots of cheese and a good amount of bread to soak up the deliciousness
  • But again on the salty side

French Dip
  • 7.5/10
  • The fries on this dish were perfectly salted and also nice and crispy
  • The bun was nice and soft but I think they could have substituted the bread for a different one that would have been better for soaking up the jus
  • The beef was pretty tender
  • The jus was the disappointing part – it lacked flavour, very one dimensional

Halibut and Chips
  • 7.5/10
  • The halibut and chips were a last minute order because we saw the table next to us had good looking ones so we decided to get it too
  • The halibut was nice and crispy but the halibut didn’t taste the freshest – tasted somewhat frozen which was disappointing had a gritty flavour to it
  • The chips were also not over salted on this one
  • The horse radish that accompanied all the chips was enjoyable – good for cutting away the fat and an extra kick

Mushroom Risotto on the Side
  • 5/10
  • Should not have ordered this
  • It was gritty and overcooked
  • Lacked mushroom flavour to it
  • Hard to finish
Things to Improve on: Consistency of saltiness, using fresher ingredients, cleanliness, service speed
Summary: Good Old American place to stop at when you get tired of shopping at Nordstrom. Although the service is somewhat slow, some of the items are quite good.
