Amazing food, wonderful ambiance, delightful service. Would 100% return again.
No doubt the food was excellent, portions were small but the quality and taste make up for it. Service was excellent considering just coming out of COVID. Incredible sceneries and nice seating areas.
Went for breakfast with my parents, food was delicious and we had an amazing view!
We certainly enjoyed our lunch – the view – awesome – our server -awesome. There was only one glitch and that was a fire alarm which kept sounding. We were told the heat tripped the alarm and caused it to ring. That part was noisy!
The service was excellent and the meal was very tasty. The view was to die for and we were able to relax and visit after the meal without anyone rushing to get us out.
View is outstanding and food was good. Service at the restaurant itself was good but we had difficulty getting information from the restaurant in advance. My wife is vegan and they said we could ask for custom vegan dishes if we gave them 24 hour notice. They did not respond to my question on the opentable site and they did not respond to a voice message. Finally got to talk to a real person and they assured us that something would be arranged. When we arrived, the server and chef gave her two choices that were not on the menu so ended well.
I had dinner at your restaurant a month ago and I loved it so much that I asked my whole family to come – I regret doing that. Should have taken them elsewhere. First, The food took over 1 hour to be served and at no point did the waitress apologize or explain why it was taken too long. Second, The first time I was there I ordered the seared scallops which were fantastic so I recommend my family to get them – what you served looked like an appetizer. The amount of risotto was a fraction of what I was served the first time I was there. Third, I don’t know if the waitress was over worked or just tired but we asked for a heat lamp to be turned on and she did not look to happy about that simple request. She tried to turn it on but was not able to. She said she would ask her manager to turn on the gas. She never did. Bad experience all together. Need to improve a lot. First time I was there you wowed me. This time you just fell below the mark.
