The view was spectacular, and the young man was an excellent host, very friendly and helpful! Food quality was medium. a cold platter for a main dish at Christmas was a bit of a bummer. from the description we expected something else.

The service in this restaurant is unbelievably poor. We waited 90 minutes to receive our drinks order despite reminding the waiter three times in a courteous manner. Our food took another hour to arrive although we only ordered a toasted sandwich and a burger. Every...More
