My husband and I were in town to visit family. Needed to ditch them for the evening and spend some time together. Opted to have dinner here, and was a little bit leery about the menu based upon the descriptions. We decided to go anyway. What a beautiful restaurant! We ordered the Edamame with extra salt, and the edamame with garlic. Both of them were steamed to perfection. Crisp yet soft. Then we split the seared Ahi tuna and the sampler plate with tuna Poke, beef, eggrolls and coconut shrimp. We LOVED IT!! Our server, Sydney, was attentive but not in our face, which was refreshing. Make time to go here. We both had 2 drinks that were doubles and we left for under $150 and really enjoyed our evening!!

My wife and I had dinner here at a window table Friday night, for our 25th wedding anniversary. The atmosphere is romantic beautiful view, and the food tasted like it was bought in the frozen section at Trader Joes. I was quite disappointed in view of the high reviews. The last time I ate here was almost 50 years ago and it was much better not that that means anything. Bottom line nice atmosphere go somewhere else to eat.

Totally enjoyed a nice dinner on the terrace under the heaters on a chilly evening. Waiter was terrific in guiding us in our food choices. Flavors were awesome and the drinks were pretty terrific too! Couldn’t beat the views.

We arrived shortly before our reservation time and were greeted and brought to our table. Our hostess left menus, but it was 10+ minutes before our waiter arrived.
After answering several questions and making recommendations, we ordered. Our food arrived so quickly, we had barely started our wine or the bread that was delivered.
The food (crispy beef and Korean chicken) was fabulous! Flavors were wonderful, veggies were crisp, meats were tender.
It was another 10-15 minutes after we had finished and our plates had been cleared (the waiter never came to ask how the food was, if we needed anything) before the waiter asked if we wanted dessert. We ordered coffee, which took another 10-15 minutes.
Bottom line... if you luck out and get an attentive waiter, you'll be very happy with service and food. We were only happy with the food.
