I went by it recently and that place has been 20 different places since I lived here so I want to know what you think and what was good?

        How is the wine list? A seafood place is fertile territory for some great wines.

      2. We went there in Sept (via boat) and we thought the food was quite good, but the whole atomsphere could be friendlier. Still, the quality of the food would bring us back.

        1. Average food. Nice views. Good for a burger and beer on the deck.

          1. Same guy owns g/r/a/n/d in downtown -- which has a more creative (tho just as eclectic) menu. Probably the most underated resto in the area because of the hot bar and music scene later in the evenings. It's also a great space, think you're in the city. So go to SWG for the view. To g/r/a/n/d for food ... and some very nice scenery, too.

            Tho it's been a couple of months since I've been there... the tuna pizza is unforgettable. Laced w/ candied ginger and a miso vinagrette. Also I've had their moules frite, with a lucious coconut cream sauce that blends asian and french..

            Their signature app is Mac and Cheese -- the gruyere flaked with of truffles. I'm not a M&C guy, but my friends give it a rave.

            For big plates, the ricotta gnochi features lobster, morel, and fava beans. Or go for the hamburger, wagyu beaf, red onion marmalade, cheddar.

            Some crazy combos, but they work. And not as scattered as SWG.

            1. Went last week for dinner and would not return. 6:00pm on a Saturday and no one else in the restaurant. Bad service (waitress was clueless about the menu), rude, drinks are at least half the size that they used to be. Blender was broken and the food is just average.

              Save your money and pass on this restaurant.

                Honesty, I think the location, while very lovely, is plagued. Nothing has worked in that spot for the last 15 years. I just don't understand it. I would think a good solid seafood spot would do a killer business over looking the water like that--this has not been the case at all.
