Did not like the "feeling" of the place. We left shortly after our water came out because the motion and sound was unsettling to us.

This restaurant was a hit with my family. The food is mix American/Italian, with a great bar and beautiful white tablecloth/dim lighting atmosphere. The best part, as you have read, is tehe view. 360 degrees of Duluth and the Harbor, with a great rotating floor that does not make you dizzy one bit. The food could have been less expensive,...

You can't get this view from any other restaurant in the city and it's a panaramic view. The restaurant sits on top of the Hotel and very slowly spins around while you are dining. The food is top notch high quality. An absolute must for visitors and residents.
