A little pricey, but in line with the area. Service was excellent. Dining in the open space was magnificent!

“Nice every time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

The food and service at the Fontana is very good. It's very centrally located to meet friends and have a drink, or spend the day by the pool.
