The meal was absolutely delicious. What really stood out in this fine restaurant is how the waitress went out of her way to do everything possible for us.

Treat yourself to fabulous lunch and a great view. There mushroom soup and scallops are amazing. We usually share some wonderful salad, too. It never disappoints. I've been there 5 times.
