Had the filet, wife had the halibut. Both were excellent. Sushi and goat cheese appetizer was amazing. Service was very good as well.

Steak was good. The server we had wasn't very nice. Very nice drink selection but it can get very expensive. They do take the dining plan, which is a plus. Awesome view.

We made reservation six month ago to celebrate our younger son's birthday on Christmas Eve, due to its high reputation on Yelp. However, we are very disappointed on their slow services and food quality. Definitely not come back again.

The only reservation that I could get was for 9:35pm, it will be our first trip. I was really hoping to see the fireworks from this location, will I still be able to? Can we get there a little early and go on the observation deck while we are waiting for our table and watch the fireworks?

Yes. And even if your seated, you can either watch from your table or go outside on the roof and watch. The wait staff will accommodate whatever you choose.
