Food here isn't bad, but it's just average and overpriced for what it is. However you are held hostage to eat somewhere unless you bring a picnic lunch and this is as good as any and the view is very nice.

Our waitress was very friendly. We ordered the chicken sandwich and it was fantastic! The best part was definitely the Ghirardelli brownie sundae they have. I would recommend. The restaurant has great food and great views!

I think you would want to see the sunset from the balcony on the back side, but probably not the best view, you are on the peak looking down into the valley but the sun sets on the back side of that mountain.

Yes the tram is the only way there. The restaurant is in the same building as the tram 'station' when you get to the top.

I don't believe their is a dress code at lunch. We were there in tshirts, shorts and running shoes. Not sure about the dinner service but I suspect it is the same.
