The crab panini was very good and the she-crap soup was a little disappointing. The view was wonderful and the service was prompt. Reasonable pricing.

Nice friendly staff, the menu could use a makeover. We enjoyed a pizza, but would maybe try somewhere else before here.

We stopped in for lunch after a recommendation from my new buddy Pete, their PR man, who I met outside their front door. He sold us on their food and he was right on. They have a great bar also.

If you're concerned about this, I recommend avoiding this place all together! The food is great: well seasoned, presented and portions are ample. Of course, they do have salads with oil and vinegar on the side to dress it up. More
