“Yummy Food, Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Had a business dinner for party of 3. Enjoyed great sunset view, and very tasty food. Two of us had filet mignon prepared perfectly, and the other had a Hawaiian pizza that he reportedly enjoyed very much. Great cocktails, a "good but not great" Caesar salad. Super-yummy dessert of a trio of Creme Brulees. (Kona coffee, vanilla, and mango.) The service was exceptional! They had live music on the Monday night we were there. Would definitely return to continue exploring their menu! Would recommend for both business or romantic dinner, and even saw some families in there.

“Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The restaurant is nice and the wait staff friendly and informative. The food was top notch. They offered a buffet but we decided on a sit down dinner. Again it was all very good, no complaints.

“Excellent pizzas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

The pulled pork, goat cheese and guava sauce pizza was fantastic. Kids will love the smoothies. Worth a visit to meet Big C - he was so friendly and interesting, with lots of tips and suggestions. All the staff were super friendly.

The service was top notch and the food (although not cheap) was excellent. We had fresh Ahi and it was delicious. The views are terrific too!
