The food and the service were both excellent. It was pricey but worth it. We had the fish special- sole and it melted in your mouth. We were outside on the lake and the view was spectacular.

There are some vegetarian dishes available but am not sure if they are truly vegan. You would need to call. The nearby Ethos restaurant is a large and varied menu, very tasty vegan restaurant for all ages.
