For our first anniversary, we wanted to go somewhere that we don't usually go but haven't been for awhile that was close to home. It's nice to have to not go in to the city all the time to get something nice.
We were promptly seated after arriving for our 5:30 reservation. We had requested a window seat because the river is beautiful at night, and although not promised that we would receive one because others had requested the same thing, we were given a beautiful window seat in a corner!
Our server was always around if need be, and always checking in to make sure we were okay, or if we needed anything. For appetizers, I ordered the spinach, salmon and artichoke dip, and he the oysters as usual. Husband ordered the steak & Dungeoness crab for dinner, and I the steak and crab stuffed jumbo prawns. Both meals were absolutely delicious, but the spinach salmon and artichoke dip, while good, has some spices in it that we couldn't place and probably would of preferred to have had left out if we had known about them. We definitely got excellent food for the price they charge.
This is by far one of the nicer Boathouse restaurants, with a romantic feeling when you walk in, not a 'family dinner' restaurant type feel.
