We strive to offer you our own take on classic dishes that showcase the bounty of the Pacific Northwest. All dishes are made from scratch. Come in and experience some delicious dishes featuring fresh seafood, local produce, handmade pastas, and a rotating array of steaks and chops.

The city's population was 219,346 at the time of the 2020 census. Tacoma is the second-largest city in the Puget Sound area and the third-largest in the state. Tacoma also serves as the center of business activity for the South Sound region, which has a population of about 1 million.
Bravo Tacoma! With ample seating options, friendly and well trained staff to start with, your experience as a customer is only brightened by the libations which are fresh and well curated. The experience is rounded out by a small but carefully curated menu with rotation based on seasonality and market. Typically I wait until having dined several times before reviewing but I felt it necessary to share the word about this wonderful new restaurant. I'm a (very) picky about my halibut and king salmon being Alaskan grown but my partner and I got both dishes and I couldn't be more wowed. Not only were both filets cut, seasoned and cooked to perfection with pan crust to die for, they were dressed with just the right amount of accompaniment (love that lemon brown rice) and garnish. My partner noted that it was the best salmon tartar he's ever had the waffle chips are a work of art, albeit a little too delicate for the dish they are best when you use a fork to scoop the weight of the avocado and salmon onto the chip in small amounts. We left satisfied and excited to return!
Absolutely amazing!!! I would give 10 stars if I could! It was an extraordinary gastronomic journey that exceeded my wildest expectations. From the elegant ambiance to the exceptional service and, of course, the awe-inspiring culinary creations (all dishes made from scratch-even hand made pasta!), every aspect of this dining experience was nothing short of perfection. What truly elevated my dining experience was the exceptional attention to detail. Each ingredient was thoughtfully sourced, showcasing the restaurant's commitment to quality and flavor. The wine and the cocktails menu was also incredible, and the presentation was a work of art. I highly recommend this new restaurant to anyone seeking an unforgettable evening filled with culinary delights.
