We both enjoyed our meals and looked like everyone around us was also enjoying theirs. Service was good and the views were peaceful. As we walked out, we saw lots of people enjoying the piano sing along.

Very lively place - even though it was busy and told a wait time would be 25 minutes we were seated in 15 minutes. A good selection of different foods, great service.
