My husband and I went for Valentine's (our second trip to this restaurant). As with the first time, the food was divine... Staff was helpful in picking out the right wine. The restaurant was busy, but well run.

Go to Ceviche to watch the sunset then go down a level and listen to music with a drink. If you eat there, don't expect too much. Their namesake dish, ceviche, is subpar.
