The service and atmosphere were top-notch. However, the food was not overly flavourful, unique, or memorable. The green tea iced tea was delicious though.

The service was excellent, the food was delicious and beautifully presented.

Really nice and fancy place to dine. The view is awesome and next time I go, I'd definitely wanna be there during the day so I can have a better look at the water. However, it's really romantic at night so really good place for a date night. The service was nice.

As for the food, I've had better, especially at nicer places like this. The lingcod entree gave me stomach issues afterwards, and I tasted the lamb my husband got and it wasn't that great either. Considering the price we paid, I expected better. The appetizers were really nice though - the soup and salad.

The venue is excellent, good service, good food but now during Covid it is frustrating that customers have to eat quick and go. 90 minutes was definitely not enough time and this is not to reflect on the quality of this place but the non sense government rules that are in place are affecting how such venues operate. Will go again, but not during Covidian times.

Oscar - thank you for the feedback. We are happy that you enjoyed your experience with us. Our menu options will expand once restrictions on capacity (and therefore the 90 minute seating limit) are eased and we can get back to 'normal'. The entire team is excited to be welcoming our guests again and we look forward to providing you and your guests with another memorable experience again soon.
