Excellent food, and incredible view. The wine bottle drinking glasses were unique, and the hummingbirds on the patio were charming. Service was prompt and polite. We never had to ask for anything. Even the kids enjoyed the higher-end meals.

Food here was delicious. I had clam chowder (soup of the day) and a salad and was very impressed. That being said, service was somewhat spotty and it took quite a while to get our check.

The meals were very good-solid I would say. They had a nice selection of wines and service was very good. Loved the artichoke! Good size proportions, especially the pasta dishes. Would eat here again.

Service was poor - appetizer not brought at all, food did not get served as ordered, had to look for the waitress to get our bill.
