We had a large group of friends and family together for a meal at 1587, and it was excellent. The salads, entrees, cocktails, and dessert were all delicious and beautifully presented. The staff was very attentive as well. We love 1587!

The most awesome dining experience. Excellent food, we ordered mussels for appetizers and a very large portion. Excellent view and service, wish we could have gone back additional nite, need to make reservations, and closed mon-tue. A must for a special dining experience.
