Food: Yeah...the price has gone down a little bit all right. But it's small portion, how lame is that? Taste is so so not memorable. Nothing especial. They use inexpensive ingredients and charge you a fortune. They just sell you presentation, arrange it nicely on the plate but it doesn't taste good and the ingredients are not worthy that kind of money.
Service: For an expensive restaurant, you do expect a little bit more than "getting the order right and not mean". Service is not attentive. You do feel like fool dining in there. Why bother spending lots money there when you are not treated like a valuable guest?
Ambiance: They are more like selling views and ambiance than food.
But the view is somewhat confined. If you go there during raining days, dark and gray, you just look at gray sky and gray river. Nothing much. If you go there at night, dark and cold, you just look at dark river. Not much lighting there. Maybe summer night will be better.
Interior is newer than those restaurants in Steveston but nothing wows you. I have seen better and I am sure you have.
If you like to buy excellent ambience more than great food, if you want to sit in a fancy place and look pretty, this is not the place for you. Go to downtown, there's more places with better interior, vibe and food, and they are not any more expensive than this pretentious restaurant.
Don't you just hate it when people think their restaurant is upscale because they have plating and decor? So lame! It makes you chuckle when you see the decor doesn't wow you and you know plating costs not a lot but only takes you extra 1 minute. My sister can do beautiful plating too because she just always likes to make things pretty. Believe me, it's not that hard.
I went there because my friend forced me to. Now he owes me, he has to go to the restaurant I choose next time.
