Way too much money. Great view but that is all. If you have a big wallet than go over there. Better is go to down stairs to Alonso

Had a good dinner including oysters. Bought a relatively new wine that was terribly disappointing. The waitstaff conferred with the bartender about the fruitiness of the wine , and they were wrong. My friends and I left 1/2 the bottle. This obviously made the dinner...More
