“Good view average food & service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Went to this for an anniversary dinner. We were seated promptly (the restaurant was not took busy). The views are good and since we were visitors to the area it gave us a good overlook of the city. Had to ask the waitress if there were any special offerings for the evening. Which there was only one (an appetizer) I had a steak my wife had salmon both meals were fair portions but average on taste and preparation. I would recommend to order a drink from the lounge and sit at a lounge table for the view. The meal for two was over $100 and we each had only 1 glass of wine and no dessert.

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”
5 of 5 stars 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.
