Group dinner for tour passengers was had in this class restaurant in the sky. The dinner was a buffet and the best fare on display. Eat as much as you want ! Just brilliant.

The staff made sure we were taken care of and quite attentive and responsive. The view was beautiful, even though it’s only 10th floor. The food was good, but not awesome. At $48 per person, I was expecting a meal that was superb, not average....More

The food was just bad, the deserts were too sweet and cheap, the salad bar felt like a cheap buffet, enough said.

My wife and I went here for the view, which was nice but the windows face the west so (1) you don't see any mountains and (2) the sun shines right through the window so they had a shade pulled down. The food was average....More

This was a Tuesday night at about 5:15 PM, very light crowd at the time. As a note, I am reviewing this based on the $42/person we paid ($90.56 with tax), and in comparison to Golden Corral which I know could be considered unfair, and...More
