Overall, the food was good. The avocado salad was delicious as was the filet mignon. The service could improve as we all waited a long time for our appetizers and for coffee. At least there was parking in the front. Word of advice: if your...More

A great view of course and excellent service and presentation. Out of the 4 dishes we had (2 appetizers & 2 entrees), 3 were horrible. Octopus, Duck and I think the 3rd was Ahi Tuna. All very fishy. I was very disappointed.
