We arrived with high expectations. The view is terrific. The decor feels very dated, like it was designed and decorated 20-30 years ago. Our food was excellent, but the service was just terrible. I had asked for a glass of white wine to go with...More

It is unusual for me to write about about service, let alone first, but it was abysmal. They were nearly as many servers as customers, but it did not affect their inability to provide service. You wait for the server, and even the menus. We...More
