Great Dinner...excellent choices, flavors and wine list. Beet & brussel sprout salad very good. It's a bit noisy, but the food is worth it

Cozy atmosphere, great food, great service. A little pricey but oh so worth it! You get to watch the chefs prepare your food. Beautiful view of the water.

Our experience was wonderful.... food fresh and wonderfully prepared. Our salad with grilled peaches won the day! Fish was seared perfectly and the entire restaurant was filled with a happy buzz.

The only glitch was the wine... We had decided on a Sancerre and a person who was not our server or the owner came to our table and managed to talk us out of a wine we knew to be wonderful and more less insisted that we try a Sauvignon Blanc from Traverse City. The longer the wine was open... the less pleasant it became and the more we regretted not sticking to our original choice. This peculiar wine was a cross between an overdone New Zealand grapefruit bomb and a catbox.

Despite this curious incident, it won't dissuade us from returning. We'll just choose our own wine.

We stopped for an early lunch on a Sunday. Cute/bistro-like décor, on a pseudo cliff with a terrific view of the lake. There was a storm coming in and it was spectacular. Although not a "kid friendly" environment, there was a toddler at the next table and the wait staff was great with him. We had the grilled three cheese sandwich, which was fabulous, and an omelet. Everything was wonderful. Nice atmosphere & decor, clean bathrooms, efficient and very pleasant wait staff. We'll make a point of going there again next trip

Mesmerizing view, appealing modern decor, and friendly service do not unfortunately outweigh disappointing results from the kitchen. We visited twice for dinners during vacation and experienced very uneven dishes----one excellent entree which brought us back a second time, everything else meh or below on both visits. Everything we tried sounded better than it turned out to be. Also way too much oil used in cooking.
