Beautiful View

We enjoyed our dinner, Rainbow Trout, Salmon and Crab Cakes. The steak was not up to par, however, staff was accommodating and prepared another steak. Lovely view, so all food tastes better with a good scenery. Would return.

The food was fabulous here. Staff were very helpful. The setting is beautiful. Romantic and modern. Nice menu. Not trendy, but chic.
