First time in, and we immediately recognized the friendly vibes of the staff and smiling diners. When you can you always should start any brunch with beignets, and we did. So light, and the powdered sugar was as high as Rainier…we just scooped into the warm insides and took the sugar rush, thank you. Oh, the coffee. The coffee. We were like a couple of tourists going on about it…well, maybe the sugar was kicking in but Batdorf & Bronson Dancing Goats blend is our new choice. Onto the Dungeness crab cakes-perfect. And Eggs Shakshuka. I know it can be a challenge to try something new, especially when the all the favs are on a menu, but this was amazingly spicy/tasty! Wow. And the coffee! Go on by, your tastebuds will thank you

It is a great restaurant by the park with a pound and overlooking the capital. The food is unique and good. There are several displays of art throughout the restaurant, and it has an open atmosphere with a patio.

Great options! Fresh and balanced flavors in each dish. The grilled octopus was exquisite. I’m gluten free and dairy free and found a well marked menu with several options in each category.

Came here for the first time tonight for coffee and dessert after dinner down the street. With Capitol lake in the near distance, the lights made a welcome reflection for a pleasant evening walk.

Fresh and good quality sea food, fair prices. Tasty fresh and baked oysters. Though some main meals receipts should be revised for a good flavor balance and ingredients matching. Good was excellent.

We went with 2 other couples tonight and it was our first trip. The intent was to share appetizers and drinks with good company. However, after walking in and experiencing the atmosphere and reading the menu it was a full meal for all! I had a Rose of the Dead cocktail – We did share a few tapas – crab cakes, a potato dish, and cauliflower dish and they were all fabulous. I had a meatless pasta dish that was very tasty. One of our friends had an octopus dish and he said it was amazing. From my seat, the plating was fantastic, but I didn’t sample. We opted for outdoor seating and am so glad we did! I typically shy away from outdoor seating because I burn easily and don’t enjoy sitting with the sun in my face while I eat. Octapas has solved the problem – it is covered outdoor seating. Perfect! The decor is quite lovely. I felt like it was simple sophistication. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and can guarantee I will be back.

Honestly, the coffee sucked. Huevos rancheros with rye bread we’re delicious. Would come again.

Brunch was better than advertised. The best restaurant eggs benedict I’ve had in a long time, possibly ever. The hollandaise was made from scratch, in house. Fun atmosphere as well. We’ll definitely be going back for brunch again.

Loved the food! My favorite was the octopus. Perfectly prepared. We had five tapas and they were all delicious. Our server was exuberant and was attentive and knew the menu by heart. Will definitely go again.

Great food and drink menu and atmosphere. The service was excellent. Although the food was great and the restaurant is family-friendly, I did not notice too many options for the younger kids. My daughter (12) had the Carnitas Tacos with Salsa verde. This is a great date night spot, to hang out with friends or just try something new!!
