The food was wonderful, along with the views in the bar, but the service was really poor. We were there over two hours. The staff is friendly, but they were understaffed the night we were there. Wasn't worth the wait or the price.More

The lounge has an outstanding view with comfortable seating. Very pleasant atmosphere. The food choices in the bar are limited but everything is excellent. A very good, upscale restaurant. One of the best restaurants in the area!
