The food was mediocre and the wine pairing very poor. Too much money and trouble to get there for what you get.

Excellent food and unique setting. Gondola ride up followed by a snow cat to the restaurant make for a truly memorable evening and the food and service live up to the rest of the experience. It's pricey (especially the wine list...) but overall worth it.

Thanks for taking care of us and remembering we were celebrating a graduation. Adam is a great server that made us feel at home and didn’t rush us at all. Josh recommended a great bottle of wine in our price range. Nothing beats the gondola ride and snowcat ride at night in the snow!
