Tablecloth at our table had stains on it to start with. The menu was so eclectic that none of us could determine what we actually wanted. After pointing this out we were told we could customize. The restaurant wasn't busy yet it took 45 minutes to receive our entrees. They arrived cold and most of the items were mediocre at... More

In short the Food & Beverage Mgr should be held accountable for the procurement & delivery of high quality meals. The Chef blames the supplier for the Quality of the walleye he receives & goes ahead and services mushy under cooked walleye to myself and the guests at the table behind us 15 minutes later. A complimentary dessert didn't make... More

I was dining alone. I was seated at table with a view although all of the tables have views. The waiter helped me select a glass of wine, brought me a sample of two different wines to help me choose. I ordered as a starter 3 fried oysters - nice presentation on a bed of watercress. My main course was... More

On our recent trip through Michigan we weren't expecting to find such a gem of a restaurant in this touristy town. The first thing you notice when you step off the elevator on the 16th floor is the amazing view of the bay and city below. Then you notice the lovely restaurant, high sealings and upscale atmosphere! We were seated... More

Very memorable meal. The food was extremely well prepared and the service was great, and the view was equally as special. Despite the prices, I would come back in a heart beat.

We went here for an anniversary dinner. The view cannot be duplicated....panoramic of al of Traverse City at the top of the tower on the Grand Traverse Resort. The food was wonderful, the service exemplary, and the atmosphere the best. We will be back again sooner than later.

Wonderful views, outstanding cuisine, and all served by a professional staff that understands getting the pace of the meal right. We always go here when in Traverse City, and the Tower section of the resort is 4-5 stars as well.

Prices are high for the quality of food that you get. Appetizers are better than the entrees. Stunning view with many tables facing the lake.

I tried this place while staying at the resort for a girls weekend. We had reservations and were seated right away. It's a beautiful view no matter where you sit. Service was very good too. We both got sea bass that came with creamed spinach and mushroom risotto. Everything was delicious! I could have had the risotto alone as my... More
