    Beautiful view but the food was extremely average. Definitely not worth the price. Service was excellent. Building entrance was going through reconstruction so it took away a little bit of the exclusivity of our overall experience.

    My glasses were stolen or thrown away by staff right off the table no longer 3-5 min after I walked away . I immediately went back to table and they were gone . Management showed no concern . I have contacted the restaurant several times but no one has responded to my emails and or voicemail messages . These glasses were prescribed by my optometrist and must be replaced .

    Despite having a reservation we waited nearly an hour for our table, and were only seated after the hostess admitted to giving our table away. Management failed to give us an adequate explanation as to how that happened as well. While the food was delicious, with such a hefty price tag I would expect better service.

    All I can say (write) is WOW!!!! The dining experience was unforgettable. My spouse and I went for our anniversary. The host greeted us by saying "Happy anniversary." The service was outstanding. There were bursts of flavor with every bite of food we took. The view was amazing. We went right around the time when the sun set, which added to the already amazing atmosphere. I will not stop raving about this restaurant. The next time I'm in CA, we will definitely be back. Highly recommended!

    The ambience is absolutely wonderful. No words to describe it. I read all of the reviews prior to attending this dinner and would have to agree it really is a special place. The staff will tend to your needs and will accommodate you. We requested window seat and our request was honored. Thank you for making this occasion wonderful. The only thing was the temperature of food, it is not warm enough. Taste could be improve on certain dishes. Cocktails are amazing. View on views on views. You really are 71 above when dinning here. Parking is $15. Expect an automatic gratuity of 18%

    I came for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner. We had the 3 course meal. I am plant based so I asked ahead of time if they could accommodate me. They never responded back to me. When we got there the service was great, however I was told there are no substitutions. I said okay and when I got my entree, I discovered a plate with a silted cabbage leave with some wild rice mash. It was disgusting. I messaged the manager and all they offered me was a gift card for drinks. I will definitely not go back to eat there unless the chef adjusted the menu to be plant based friendly and not plant based disgusting.
