“Food Good, everything else very bad!”
Reviewed May 26, 2008

Lets just say that the food is comparable to any other restaurant that charges the same prices and is of good quality. However this is totally overshadowed by the poor greeting and service. There is a guy with glasses that greets you at the door/counter and he makes it obvious that he is staring you up and down as if Esca is a restaurant on the Champs Elysee, which its clearly not. Arrogantly he will show you to your table. The atmpsphere of this place is avarage and the decor around the rear is dull in comparison to the front side of the restaurant. The only thing this place has going for it is a view, but how many of us are looking out the window while we eat??

“Great location and great...”
Reviewed November 25, 2007

Great location and great view. The food is good and well-presented without being very imaginative. Although the desserts are interesting--101 uses for coffee!! Service generally good and attentive and a reasonable wine list. Perhaps really 3 & 1/2 starts, but I'm in a generous mood.
