Setting is very nice. That is the nicest part of the restaurant. Ate four meals here. Breakfast was very nice. Lunch was Ok. Dinner was nothing special, particularly when you consider the price.

This is one of the greatest restaurants I’ve ever been to. Amazing view, and even better food. The service was extremely high end, and everything about our meal was exceptional. Would definitely recommend for those looking for a five star place.

I have been to a couple of weddings there, one outside and one inside. Both were handled beautifully, and the size of your wedding is ideal for them.
