This place has an awesome view of the city, but it ends there. The prices are extremely high and the portions are extremely small. The food was so over spiced, it made my wife puke.

The menu was EXTREMELY LIMITED and the one entrée that I wanted on their menu, they weren't able to serve it. My husband and I opted for the Filet Mignon's and they did not come the way we requested them as they both were overcooked...More

My colleagues and I dined there as part of a celebration. The decor is modern and a little cold. The views from the 27th floor are spectacular, though. The spacing between tables was comfortable and I did not hear conversations from other tables. Our server...More
