Big anniversary dinner - made advanced reservation (over a week) asking for a window table. Arrived after a cold ride up the gondola (where were the blankets we normally got??) we were escorted to a table smack dab in the middle of the room. Not impressed. After mentioning our reservation we were reseated in a slightly better spot, but not the window. A quick glance over the shoulder told us why - 50 person wedding taking up the east half. Maybe they were warm, but a fire in the gorgeous fireplace would have been nice. On to the food. Appetizers were decent but small. Mains of elk and black cod - elk could have used some seasoning and black cod was perfectly cooked, Barley risotto with the meat was awful. Someone forgot the cheese and butter, Gruel. The fish was served on tomato sauteed squid - or was it rubber bands? Awful. And both plates were cold. Really?? Desert was an assortment of cheese cakes but they were far too foamy for us. At least we got comped for dessert. Service was quite nice but the food was hit-and-miss. They gotta be better for $100 a head (with wine).

Unbeatable views. Amazing place. Food has been great....at times, but sometimes the service and food times can be inconsistent. Restaurant really got better in the last year, it really got better.

Gondola experience with our small grandchildren. Saw Boo in his pond, had a great lunch at Eagle's Eye, appreciated the Raptor exhibition, and enjoyed the Red Barn's petting zoo. What a great day to share with little ones.
