“Pretty expensive for portion/quality”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

Avoid the inexpensive pasta dishes (although $25 isn't inexpensive for a pasta dish). Maybe the more expensive meat dishes ($30 - $35) are better.

“Pretty good; pretty slow”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

Good steaks. Good happy hour. Staff all seems to be working in their first restaurant job. Kind of slow. Wine portions small. But nice views and food quality is good.

Sapphire is a wonderful restaurant in it's own right. Often chosen by locals.

“Excellent breakfast buffet”
Reviewed December 25, 2011

My family just got back from eating at Sapphire's (they were one of the few places open on Christmas). We knew their dinners were fairly expensive, and from reading the reviews, hit and miss with quality. Well, our breakfast was a hit.

Yes, the buffet was small--hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage, French toast, and biscuits ad gravy were the only hot foods available. A small fruit tray, yogurts, juices, cereal and some pastries rounded out the rest of the buffet. They had an omelet and waffle station (I had an omelet) as well. Not huge but a decent selection.

Food was good. Service was good. Now, there was only 1 other group in the restaurant, and we received excellent service (our server was the restaurant supervisor/manager).

The key may be going when they are not crowded. I have never ate there for dinner, but I have hear they are on the pricey side.

I had no complaints. Good food at a great price ($9.95 for the buffet!). Clean, great views of the city, and a very nice staff.

“They try hard”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

The fish I had was well-prepared and the warm apple pie was good. Not a huge number of entree choices. Other desserts looked terrific.
