    The service was terrific. Everyone was very friendly, and our server MK was the best. We arrived early and there was a window table overlooking the city so that was very special because the view at night is amazing on top of Mt. Washington. The food was also very good, although you have to be ready to drop a couple bucks. Overall, we didn't have any complaints. It is well worth a visit if you are looking for a friendly staff, great food, and an amazing view!

    The food was excellent! I had 3 shrimps and medallions and the shrimp were HUGE! I never saw any that BIG! My wife had filet mignon and lobster tail(4oz) and my shrimp were bigger than the lobster! My wife loved her filet and lobster. She kept saying , This is the best! The waitress we had was fantastic! And the desserts were fantastic! The bill was high but was well worth it! We will be back!

    Unfortunately our dining experience on Thursday 2/15/24 was under pare. Having dined there several times before, we just didn’t feel it was anything special. Although we did have a view of the city, the restaurant was very noisy, the service was just okay and I didn’t care for my entree (Shrimp Florentine, a dish I order quite a lot when I’m out and I just didn’t care for it, personal preference I guess). This is our usual anniversary dinner restaurant, so not having a great meal and a nice atmosphere was very disappointing.

Thank you so much this evening for Renaud’s knowledge and advice. The service and food was so good that we forgot about the view!

    Incredible dinner. Anne was an amazing server and was very knowledgeable about the menu. She took the time to walk through the menu and the features with my friends who had never been to the restaurant before. It was very impressive and everything I could ask for. Thank you Anne for a great experience!
