Was disappointed at our dinner Saturday Oct 13. The food was average at best. Nothing to complain about but nothing to rave about either. Because the food was just okay I find the prices to be high. A $19.00 burger should amazing. But it wasn't....More

Gold medals for the location, the architectural design and the interior decor; maybe just a bronze for the food. Our party of four had tacos, a schnitzel and an arctic char for lunch. The char was rated good, the schnitzel just adequate and at least...More

They do have a separate room that could be used for a private party. I have never attended a cocktail party there but they may do them. Beautiful view for any type of gathering. Check with the restaurant.
