Must ask for Vegan Menu

Restaurant has a nice atmosphere, bay views upstairs, need to ask for the vegan menu!

Pros: Liked that the Chef does include a big Vegan menu!

Decent vegan menu

We got the risotto and Zuppetta. I was disappointed they didn’t have any vegan pasta options. I’m not generally a risotto fan, but this one was very good and filling. The basil sauce was delicious. The Zuppetta was not a soup as I was expecting, but a bunch of olives 🫒 artichokes, and other vegetables roasted in a tomato sauce. The focaccia bread was not the soft bread I was expecting, but more like crunchy bruschetta base. It was ok, but I wished they called it something else since the crunchy bread was not nearly as good as what I normally think of as focaccia—soft, herby warm goodness. The chocolate covered strawberries were good but very cold like they had just been taken out of the freezer. Not worth the $15. I’m glad they have a vegan menu, but the menu has a lot of room for improvement. It would be great if they could add a pasta dish and some options with more protein like tofu or seitan. Most of their vegan offerings are just vegetables prepared in a fancy way.

They’re trying

I came with my mom because she wanted seafood and they have a full vegan menu. I ordered the “zuppetta” as an appetizer which was a bunch of vegetables with a spicy tomato sauce and some focaccia. It was pretty good but I wouldn’t have described it as a soup.

As an entree I ordered the “apple wood smoked” which was grilled eggplant, roasted potatoes and mixed sautéed vegetables served under one of those glass lids that they lift to release the smoke. It was okay but a little bland, I needed to add some salt. It also completely lacked any protein component. Lentils or grilled tofu would have been a good addition and really brought it together in my opinion. It wasn’t bad but not really worth $22.

The service was a little all over the place but I attribute that to trying to navigate covid reopening procedures.

The cocktails were delicious and very reasonably priced.

All in all not a bad experience and I definitely appreciate the effort behind the vegan menu but there might be a better, less expensive option.

Went to this restaurant because we found that they offer a vegan menu. I have to say it was amongst the most disappointing vegan meals that I've ever had. I ordered the "Modern Cartouche" which was an entrée for $21. What I received was a small to medium size portion of vegetables in a "curry" sauce/broth that was essentially devoid of any flavour. No grains, no legumes, no tofu, no seitan, no bread, no rice.... just vegetables. It was essentially what I would consider a side dish of vegetables with enough calories to sustain a large rabbit. In a world where delicious vegan options abound, especially in a place like California, they should be embarrassed to serve this. Though the server we had was polite and professional she had essentially no knowledge of the menu, even after returning from the kitchen to seek some answers about the vegan menu.

Pros: Nice ambience

Cons: Poor flavour, Extreme lack of variety

Vegan Menu Available Upon Request

The chef has really been expanding the vegan options recently. And, getting more creative and making dishes with non-dairy cheeses and cashew creams and such. Always ask your server what vegan options are available in addition to what’s on the vegan menu. The chef and his crew usually have some exciting stuff that they’ve been working on.

Recent not-on-the-menu specials have included vegan alfredo, vegan caesar salad and vegan LASAGNA!

On the vegan menu, which is available upon request at this time, my fav is the Zupetta which comes with grilled focaccia!

Happy hour for drinks is 4-6 PM. On Fridays during happy hour you can get a $5 falafel plate. Just be sure to specify vegan when you order it.

I’m rating at 3-star rather than 4-star due to the overall culture of the restaurant which unfortunately is a foie gras kind of place if you know what I mean. But they really are putting a lot of proactive effort into appeasing vegan diners, and in a small town that is a big deal since there are fewer dining options in general. The vegan food options are easily at 4-star level.

Pros: Has a designated vegan menu, Many additional vegan specials often available, Bar seating available

Cons: Serves foie gras, Lobsters are slaughtered on-site (in kitchen)

Delicious gourmet vegan experience

Worth the expense. The restaurant is beautiful, with a modern aesthetic interior, designed by the chef with pieces from local artists. Our server was friendly and sociable. Vegan menu was made available on request. Our appetizer was good, and my main course, an $18 risotto, was well worth it, looking absolutely amazing and rich with complex flavors. Afterwards, the chef came out to let us try a vegan ice cream that was prepared on the house, just for us! This was such a treat; our chef was uniquely talented and quite kind. I'll note that this implies not many vegans eat here, and the staff seems to regard veganism as a dietary restriction, not an ethical choice. Be aware that while locally sourced, many animal products, including foie gras are served here. I'd recommend this restaurant for any vegan traveling the Oregon Coast and looking for a fancy night out.

Pros: Beautiful restaurant, Friendly staff, Complex, local, flavorful food

Cons: Serves Foie Gras

A must-go!

My husband and I ate here last night and we were pleasantly surprised! We’ve been eating out all week, California to Oregon to Washington and back to Oregon, and this by far was the healthiest meal I’ve had. I had the Caribbean curry, mixture of veggies in a delicious sauce, and the strawberry “soup” for dessert. It has strawberry sorbet and fresh berries. Mmmmmm. Jennifer was a friendly server, who took care of our every need. The chef personally made us vegan mango- violet mini “shots” (non alcoholic), as well as an appetizer of carrot juice and a little falafel. It’s worth the money ( it was around $60 for 2, no alcohol).

Pros: Vegan menu!, Ambiance ( music, decor), Friendly staff

Cons: Pricey
