    Panoramic ocean view on 2nd floor but water is a bit far. Table setting and service is good in general but not that impressive. However, quality of food is extraordinary! For the price less than half of what other fine dinning restaurants are charging, you can get a 3 course dinner and everything from our selections was just great!

    French/Japanese fusion fixed price menu ($59 per person; except when it’s not). $12 upcharge for beef and some other dishes. Small portions. One beef was good, the other was tough. Server was very nice. Hardly anyone there on a Friday evening. Last year was a different restaurant that was packed. Not going back.

    I normally just give stars and don’t take the time to comment but this dining experience deserves more. First—the food was excellent. Four of us had the 3 course fixed price menu. Selections included the lobster/burratta salad, the charred octopus, the wagu beef and the duck. Desserts included the pavlova/berries, and the pastry/caramel/pastry cream—both delish. Portions were VERY small—typical in a trendy posh French restaurant. And the food was priced accordingly—each couple spent almost $250 (including tip and wine). But that’s where things go sideways. The atmosphere and experience just doesn’t mesh with the upscale menu and pricing. We were in a cavernous space (used to be Crab Landing, then Flavor) without warmth or ambiance. There is a sushi bar at the end of the dining room that is very casual—it was loud and full when we were there. There are no table clothes on the tables; there is no Somalier as you would expect at that price point. There is no full bar and the most affordable bottle of wine was $70. Also, you really need an orientation to figure out where you’re going and how the menu works. We found the signage/reception desk confusing. This is really three restaurants with one entry. Kinda strange. Once seated, we were left to peruse the menu ourselves. The first page details a very expensive 10- course “discovery menu”. Beyond that were listing of hot/cold appetizer, mains, desserts....with no prices. When you get to the last page, you see that there are 2 fixed price options—that info should have been on the first page. Then there are “add-on’s” to the pricing depending on what dishes you select. Honestly...this should all be reworked to provide a more welcoming, understandable dining experience. I’m concerned that this place is not going to survive in HMB. While I would recommend Impressions, there would be lots of caveats per my comments above. I hope some changes are made because the chef does very good work.

    Friday nite, 7PM. Terrible food. Their bizzare “Impressions” of what French food should be like was a disaster. Expensive doesn’t equate to good here. We all agreed: a big miss. Sad to say cuz it’s a nice view and this town deserves a great French restaurant. Doubt it will be in business much longer

    It is so nice to have a high quality restaurant on the coast and it was divine! We had the two appetizers and main course option for $59. The main was beef with mashed potatoes and the appetizers were octopus and lobster salad with heirloom tomatoes. The other sauces and accompanying items on each plate paired perfectly. The steak was prepared with Japanese charcoal and so tender and delicious! The value for the quality of Food and the great views makes Impressions well worth the visit. We will be back!

    The most surprising dining experience I’ve had around the world. Not expecting this made it that much more fun. But then the explanation is even more unexpected. The Incredible Chef d’Cuisine. Having worked for Robuchon in Paris as Saucier, then onto Tokyo, Hong Kong, multiple Michelin starred establishments et al, and there’s the story behind the amazing food. Go while you can, extremely recommended. The Chef is destined to move continuously upward.

    This was our first time at this relatively new restaurant. We went on a Wednesday for the Chef Tasting Menu. The food and service were outstanding. The chef is clearly very talented. The food was presented beautifully and exquisitely prepared. A foodie delight! We will be back to check out more of the menu. This place also has a sushi bar and more casual dining downstairs. Not inexpensive, but worth it. Highly recommended.

    We had a great dinner here. The food was of the highest quality, perfectly prepared. The fusion of french with high end Japanese was a unique experience for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I even asked for an additional appetizer after the entre was served because I had to have more! If it was just for the food, I'd think I was in a Michelin starred restaurant. The service was good, but still seems like a work in progress which isn't surprising given the short time this restaurant has been operating.

    Excellent quality and creative dishes fit for foodies. A great find for those who appreciate attention to every detail. The only annoying thing is the pricing — it is complicated and deceiving - prix fixe meal dinners have added up-charges that should be included in ONE price. Instead of $49, $59, $69, it should be more appropriately priced at $59, $69, $79.

    The quality of food surpassed our expectations. The chef used the freshest ingredients and the and the presentation artistic. The Octopus appetizer was crispy on the outside and melt in your mouth tender on the inside. The Foie Gras appetizer was served in a beautiful Dashi broth. The Seam Bream was crispy skinned and beautifully moist. The duck breast was perfectly cooked and served with a side of shredded duck leg in mashed potatoes "Parmentier". Yummie. The desserts were beautifully presented and decadent. Although the portions of some of the dished appeared small we when the meal was finished we were perfectly satisfied with the quality and quantity. Service did not match the food experience. It was obvious the server was inexperienced and could benefit from some training.

    I hosted two couples at Impression, including my wife & myself and another couple. I chose the 5 course option and none of us were disappointed by the food. We all chose the same 3 appetizers, not understanding we could have chosen different ones and shared. The food was brilliant and delicious. We ordered two bottles of wine and could, perhaps, have benefited from some recommendations. I found the restaurant to a bit pricey, but the meal was delicious.

    Very disappointing dining experience. Was ignore for an hour, and didn’t get the food for over an hour. Restaurant wasn’t busy with at least 1/3 of the tables were empty. Almost stood up and left before food arrived because it was just taking too long. We were seated by 7pm, we didn’t get the first course appetizer till around 8:30. Went to talk to them abt that and also told them we were there to celebrate birthday, we were completely ignore and they did not do anything about it. When we got the menu, also found discrepancies between the menus, some items were in some menus but not the other, and even the add on pricing were different between the menus. When we told them, they just took all the menu away and then came back later with another set. It was also disappointing that on a Saturday nite, restaurant doesn’t look busy, but yet they have already run out of multiple things on the menu!! What’s also makes the dining experience here so bad is that, the waiter didn’t even know they were out of those items. Especially those were the items he recommended, and It was only after we ordered, he kept having to come back later to tell us that item were out of...

    Overall disappointing despite the high quality of the food. I'm not a fan of price fixe menus but do them frequent enough to realize they are often worth it. This was not the case here. First, half of the items on the menu had upcharges, so if you want to go with the basic $49 or $59 3 or 4 course versions, the choices were very limited. And then, the service was terrible. The waiter tried to talk us out of a less expensive glass of wine (why would you ever put a wine on a list that you are not proud to serve); he had forgotten to then bring it to us and had to remind him, and then brought our second course before we were done with our first course. This second course was a "hot appetizer" and they had not interest in taking it back so it wouldn't get cold. In addition, the "general manager" seemed to pay attention more to some tables than others; were we not important enough because we didn't order a fancy enough wine?? At the same time, the food was very good....especially the deserts. I hope they figure out their business model since the chef is apparently very good and I hope they succeed.

    We celebrated Father's Day at this new restaurant. All dishes were beautifully presented. You can tell the Chef put a lot of love and attention in each plate. For 5 people, we ordered two appetizers to share, 3 tasting menus and two entrees. It was more than enough! We had a great server. He was friendly and attentive. Very good first impression. We will definitely go back for other occasions.

    Disappointing. Limited menu - not enough options for non-fish eaters or vegetarians. The wagyu beef was delicious, although could not eat 25% of the tiny serving due to gristle. No adjustment or compensation offered when I returned the plate with the uneaten portion of the $60 meal. Dessert was excellent. Bread was also very good.

    Finally! A fine restaurant emerges along the coast, rising above all the seafood joints. We tried Impressions yesterday and had a fantastic experience. The food offered a refinement and unique fusion which is so rare. One of us had the duck and the other the sea bream the seafood was prepared to perfection offering a flavor and textures that surprise. The wine selections by the glass show that someone understands fine wine, and which is served at the correct temperature in Riedel glasses. Not the half-filled bottle from behind the bar that’s been open for days, that is pervasive at other restaurants. The service reminded me of trips to Japan and Paris - polite, there when you need it, not at all stuffy. We had a pleasant talk with our waiter about our trip last month to japan. The restaurant overlooks the marina, through a wall of windows resulting in an open light atmosphere. There are three restaurants in one, so you can choose the style you wish, from casual to formal. Next week we’re trying the sushi bar. Good job, whomever created this star on the coast!

    Impressions is a new waterfront restaurant on the coast and I was looking forward to giving it a try to celebrate Mother’s day with the family. The website positions casual French dining but this is a restaurant with entrees in the $40 range with portions that suggest at least one appetizer so I think the casual reference is really more about the coastal ambiance. The food was excellent and the wine list offered a nice selection of French wines including a few well chosen by the glass alternatives. We started with a choice of bread that included a variety of appetizing small baguettes. We chose the lobster ravioli and Spanish octopus and I would recommend both without hesitation. The ravioli was delicate and paper thin with a rich and generous portion of fresh lobster. I don’t recall the details of the preparation from the menu but there was a light sauce, roasted fresh pine nuts and a light citrus zest. This was the unanimous favorite of the evening. The octopus was also well received and arrived fresh, perfectly cooked and with a hint of smoky flavor. Entrees of beef and fish were well presented, cooked to perfection and very good. The menu has a small number of items that are fresh and very well prepared. The restaurant occupies the upstairs section of the building and I noticed a high end Omakase style sushi bar that was packed to the gills in the corner. I’ll be coming back to try that but the sever mentioned that reservations filled up fast for that offering so plan accordingly. The lower level is home to a more casual restaurant offering sushi, ramen and other such items but is much more casual in presentation and price point. My only suggestion is that they promote it more aggressively with local residents, perhaps offering specials for locals as we’ve seen from Sam’s and others. Overall, an exciting addition to the coast that I would recommend!

    The menu was good, the food turned out very good, but we waited a long time to get our food. Also the wine list was very pricey. The cheapest bottle of wine is $69. The menu itself is very good, but it is also very expensive. I think the restaurant is over priced for Half Moon Bay.
