Just now paying the bill for late lunch. The onion soup was fabulous. Very light and creamy. The chicken parm sandwich was tasks. Chicken was not overcooked which is often the case with chicken breast. The fries were cooked perfectly. The only reason I didnt give it five stars is that we waited a while to be noticed at the...

We just stopped buy for some drinks, the service was impeccable and the martini & wine were excellent. It's a nice cozy lounge and the views are unbeatable. Can't wait to get up to the top by the tram and have dinner up there.

Both meals were good. Nice atmosphere. Good view of the tram and ski hill. Soups were good and so was the pizza.

Great service from Devon, great drinks. The blueberry basil drink was not as great as I had hoped, but the fireweed tea was just what I needed to satisfy my fruity-drink craving.
