Server was a joy, the rotating seating area delightful, the food fantastic, and I really appreciated being able to eat in the lounge since I didn't have a reservation.

“Excellent manager and staff”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Our reservations at the restaurant were part of a special trip with my parents. We had two meals there, and Kirsten, the restaurant manager, made certain that we had a great spot to view the Tall Ships. Zach and Joanne, our servers, were both cheerful and accommodating, sharing information about the surroundings and the festival and setting aside a dessert for my mother to take to her room when the restaurant closed. We couldn't have asked for nicer treatment.

“Great view”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Restaurant at the top of a hotel. Not a new idea. But this one rotates as you eat. It did about 1.5 rotations during our dinner. Fun to watch the changing scenery.

Food was good, service was okay. Not special but not bad either. But go for the view.
