The last time I went to The Whip, I was 17, working at the Gap and having friends way older than I was. Fast forward 15 years and The Whip is still around which is a good sign that their food is still good. The Whip is an interesting place because of the unique art that is hung around the restaurant. It is like an art gallery with some pieces priced at $1500 (the naked back of a woman).
You're here for the food... I ordered the seared ahi-tun sandwich with slaw, wasabi mayo, and seared of a kaiser bun. Tuna was cooked perfectly, still raw in the middle, not fishy at all. There was a light panic crunch to the tuna and added freshness from the slaw. Fries were very good especially with the accompanied garlic mayo.
Lillian ordered the special which was a halibut goat cheese risotto which she loved but I'm not a huge fan of goat cheese. Halibut was cooked and seasoned nicely. The seasonal vegetables cooked in butter.
Also they have a great micro-brewery beer selection if you're into that (Backcountry Brewing).
