Dinner was excellent. My friend and I dropped off flowers to be set on the table for when we arrived with our ladies. They did a magnificent job in making sure everything was perfect. Our waitress (Dawn) was just the best! She made the night so enjoyable, as we were not rushed into ordering and given all the time we... More

We have been a few times for brunch buffet, had good food, great view. Visited this morning for weekday breakfast with kids. Had great food but painfully slow service. The child at the table next to us was crying by the time their food finally arrived. Save visit for adults only.

Scheduled dinner to coincide with sunset (do it about 45 min BEFORE SUNSET) A Ruffino chiante superior... And it was. Split Caesar and a clam chowder... A very fine interpretation of a clam chowder... Very pleasing very light sauce with touch of cream and bacon highlights. Had some olives and a really tasty sirloin crustini... Tangy! Entres: large portions Prosciutto... More

The food was a 7 out of 10, the view was great and the staff was great as well. The stuffed meatloaf was one of the less expensive items, but tasty and nicely proportioned.

Last night was my second dining experience at this lovely restaurant. Christmas 2015 we had our year end work party here. Both times we got this amazing server, Cindy, who is at the top of the top servers ever! She made great suggestions, knew the menu well, and was very helpful explaining some of the attractions and sites from the... More

I ordered the same breakfast two days in a row. The 2nd day was much better than the first. It was delivered promptly and hot. Everything I requested was on the tray and my omelette was fantastic. The iced tea was good too.

My boyfriend took my here on July 27th for my 24th birthday and it was absolutely phenomenal. Cindy was our server and even though she had a full section she was willing to cater to our ever wish. I came here last year for breakfast and every time I come, we have such a wonderful time. We started with Martinis,... More

We loved the ambience and this place turns so you can see a 360 view of gorgeous Duluth. Cindy, our server, was delightful and so gracious about the 100 questions we asked regarding the menu. Our food was delicious, the Sinner Fries were heavenly! The cheese cake fantastic! Plus Cindy made herself available to take about 20 pictures of us... More

My family came here a few years back. We thought it was cool because the floor spun. It was cool but we got there and we went around fully 2 1/2 times without getting our food! It takes like an hour for it to go around! We finally got our food and man it was disappointing. My cousins cheese burger... More
