Excellent-a great dining experience

All the reviews are right-great dining with wonderful sunset views. Debbie was an outstanding waitress, and the food was delicious. Great ambiance and certainly the happening place that gets busier as the night goes on. We were not disappointed.

we taste the scallops, lobster and lamb there, the taste is quite good, and there is a free chocolate dessert for us as an anniversary celebration gift, but this dessert is not very good taste, we order another dessert which is better. There are a number of tables that you can have sunset view, but it's better to phone to... More

This restaurant never disappoints. First visit was in 2013 and the food and service is still excellent. Not to mention the beautiful sunsets you can enjoy while dining.

We both had beef--ribeye and tenderloin, respectively...cooked to perfection...wine and dine... More

This was an interesting place to dine. It's upscale, yet friendly. Just the spot for grownups to enjoy fine wine, well-prepared entrees and magnificent desserts. Enjoying the sunset at the end of our meal was an added bonus; we just rose from our table, walked out the side door, and relaxed lakeside as the sun went to bed for the... More

The first thing that will strike you the most will probably be the openness of the dining room. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house! I loved everything I ate there, it was some of the best food I've had all summer. The wait staff are very attentive and very helpful if you want suggestions. I... More

Our table had a beautiful water view. We started with a Grey Goose vodka martini. Three of us had the Ahi Tuna. I have eaten this tuna at many restaurants. This was... More
