“Almost great”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

First off, the views are fabulous. The food was good, but I was a bit disappointed with my main course--salmon with risotto--which I ordered without too much thought. The salmon was cooked in a novel manner: rare in the middle but seared to a crisp on top. That was tasty enough, but partnering it with a creamy risotto made the entire meal too rich. Fortunately, my wife had ordered a side of asparagus (cooked perfectly) which we shared. She just had the scallop appetizer, which she enjoyed. Service was good but a bit slow.

We just had some sandwiches and soft drinks. The views were great, there was live music. Rather loud for our taste. Friendly staff.

“2 Happy Hours in a Row!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Thoroughly enjoyed the views, the bites and I decided to stay for dinner even. The prices were great for wine and other drinks and I loved the flatbreads, short rib sopes, sliders and the rest too:) At dinner I had an amazing salmon dish.

Delicious food. Great wait staff - recommended dishes and, when a dish I had had previously was not listed offered to have it specially made.

“New Chef hit it out of the park....Had the Sea Bass and Rack of Lamb...”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Great service, wonderful views, the chef hit it out of the park. The prices were good. They were just a little more of what you would pay at a good steak house, but they offer dishes that are typically offered at a more expensive restaraunt. Our party ordered sea bass, rack of lamb, and the rib eye. And the chef hit it out of the park!
