The service - slow. The food - OK The view - superb. I thought it was a little overpriced but they do have a good happy hour. Stop in for a drink and appetizer

“Nice view but it's time for a new chef”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The menu threatens to provide a great meal and with the view from the top of the rock expectations were high. I ate here twice convinced I didn't order the right thing the first time. The second time results in the very generous score of average. Too much deep fried and poorly balanced dishes. There were some good things but for this price it failed to measure up. Definatley skip dessert.

“Happy Hour overlooking the city”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

We went to Happy Hour. The sweet potato and chorizo is delish. So is the Hamburger with an olive on top. Chocolate pie is delish too! Look out over the city while eating.

“great views, good food”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

This is not your typical dining place. The food is very good. A lot of the ingredients are farm fresh and locally sourced. They make very unique sauces and have original combinations of food. Every one at our table (there were 9 of us) had some thing different and every one enjoyed it. It's definitely worth a trip

“Great happy hour and views!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Stopped by after planning our daughter's wedding at the Buttes (needed a drink!). Service was fantastic. Happy Hour snacks were very tasty. Really liked the chips and salsa and fried shrimp. We sat outside to enjoy the terrific views. My wife explored their homegrown herb garden. Several staff came out and talked to her about the herbs and how they used them in different dishes and drinks. Really outstanding people.
