Altough there seem to be problems making reservations online and also over the phone we managed to have brunch on our anniversary and it was great. There were different, and less options compared to those prior to the renovation, but still stunning location and choices....More

Great location and good service. Food was pre-prepared and very disappointing. The calamari starter was good and the wine list was excellent. Not likely to return

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

Lovely dinner and great service (at least by the servers). If not for a reservation issue I would give the restaurant five stars. We had booked a reservation for dinner at 7pm on a Saturday night well over a month in advance. This was also...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.
