The food was really good. Their happy hour is a great deal and the views of the city are awesome! The octopus is really yum.

Cygnus offers and over-the-top delicious Sunday brunch. There are 3 chef-staffed stations (fresh sushi, eggs and crepes) that are done to perfection. The bartender makes a mean, spicy Bloody Mary and the dessert table is sugar perfection.
