    The view was a little less than I expected. The restaurant is sectioned off with the bar area being the best view. The dining section we had looked out at the bus stop and the 42nd floor where all the window washing equipment for the building is moored. The food was very good! And the service was the highlight. I would certainly recommend it but ask for a table in a different section than I had.

    Ambiance was like being in a hotel room - boring and long-in-the tooth. Food was just OK. Very disappointing given higher prices.

    My wife n I came here for an anniversary lunch, the view is great of the city. We had two glasses of Merlot which my wife really liked. The waiter gave us the chef 's special, which I believe was grilled salmon, mashed potatoes n asparagus. All very good n came out in timely manner. I read the reviews before going so I was nervous but this place is underrated, n needs more recognition. The only recommendation I would have is to adjust the hours to be open later and/or on the weekend, because I like to come and see tgr sunset from here while having a nice dinner sometimes. But besides that we loved it!

    It's a shame that a restaurant at such a great location would be so inadequate. The decor hasn't been touched in 20 years and the waiter was just rude. The food was passable - nothing special. Looks like I'll be asking my guests to drive to another location, rather than walking to this place, next time I schedule a business lunch with someone from this part of downtown.
