A friend took us to Top View for dinner. Shame about the new construction on lower elevations that blocks the view. I'm sure at one time it was really magnificent. That being said, we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner there. Our food was great (our party...More

Food is not fantastic but ok and proposes a kid menu. The outdoor space is plaisant and the rundown playground useful to keep the kids happy. If you live nearby, give it a try, but don't have height exprectations.

The restaurant name probably needs to change as a building is coming up that blocks the view. The steaks we ordered were terrible and the desert (Tirimasu) was drowned in alcohol. I wouldn't recommend it.
