It's the kind of place you would take your prom date in hopes of impressing them. The food was just average, not bad not great though. The service was below par for the price although the place was only half full they rushed to try to turn the table.

So, I've herd a lot of great things about this restaurant, just had to try it on date night. First of all, reservation is a must. The scenery from up top is definitely breathtaking. Atmosphere is very private and comfortable. The decor, very modern. Now for the drinks. Lots of beer option. A variety of milky drinks even with eggs.... More

This restaurant has the best views in White plains but could use a new chef. The food is bland (rubbery shrimp) and the management staff is rude. Try another place

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food as this restaurant. We ate there for our anniversary and had a great meal. We hadthe lobster cocktail, oysters , the flambed chorizo, Clams casino which were juicy and meaty, the octopus, fried chicken sandwich. And a pork cutlet sandwich which was the only thing that was so so. Our... More

We had a 5:45 dinner reservation. I'd agree with the poster below that this is not a fancy restaurant. Let's face it, we came for the view. That aside, we were more than surprised with the quality and the size of the portions. My wife and I shared 2 tapas, the Clams casino and Macau pepper steak. I also ordered... More

My wife and I wanted to get dressed up and eat a great meal. Obviously, the big impression is the view but the food was average at best and the decor was not up to par for the ticket price. Not a restaurant I would visit again.....nice staff but it just does not make up for the low value.

Even one star is too many....took some friend there last night for both view and some bite...we had to wait 30min for our table. Meanwhile my friend very discretely went close to the windows to check the view. Right away the manager came by and asked us to go back to the waiting area. He was concerned that other tables...

A fine dinner on a Saturday night. Our evening began with two choice Tapas Crispy Calamari & Shrimp Jalapeno with tartar sauce was uniquely excellent - a highlight not to be missed. As was the Drunken Burgers. Two neatly packed - freshly medium mini burgers. One bite and the hidden ketchup evenly oozes out. Thoroughly enjoyed. Our mains - while... More
