Went after a vigorous hike up to the tram, so perhaps anything would have tasted good. But enjoyed the vegetarian pasta, which was flavorful.

For all the rave reviews, expected much more unique and creative menu options. They did offer us each a nice glass of complimentary champagne for our anniversary which was nice. Small, intimate dining area and great service but food was just nothing special.
