The building is terrible and there is absolutely no attention to detail- flowers wilted and decaying deck. Please do yourself a favor and do not order the sangria as it tastes like cough syrup.

If you want to go for the experience, view, and wine tasting don't expect very good wine. But that's typical of Connecticut wines. It's a fun at a pretty location.
