Since it was the last day they were open 12/6 they were running out of a few options. But other than that it was great had a filet mignon steak pretty good. As well my dad had a Lobster & shrimp bucatini. What a bummer you guys had to close due to this new regulations but lets hope for a better year in January so you guys can make your comeback. Definitely recommend this place.

Went the last day before the second lock down for covid. They were out of oysters, prime rib, and tiramisu, but the food we did get was excellent.

Service was impeccable but the food....beyond delicious. Elegantly presented but most importantly you can taste the quality of ingredients and freshness. Highly recommend. Worth the drive!

Wow! I couldn’t have asked for a better evening! My first time here, with a first official date of someone I am falling for. I chose this place because I wanted it to be “Our Spot”. I look forward to coming back as the food was incredible and the view was breathtaking! Thank you <3

It was my birthday dinner, i splurged and got the Kobe medium rare, which was delicious, also my first time eating Kobe steak so I have nothing to compare it to. However I would have preferred the filet mignon, wasn’t quite medium rare a little over cooked more like medium well. The view was absolutely stunning. I wish to come back in the summer though since they open at 5 and it was past sunset during our dinner on 11/30/20. Wine was amazing and service was great. At this time it was a bit cold even with their heaters out there, price was a bit high but I feel like the view was half the cost which is alright.

Perfect view. Excellent service. Great for romantic dinner. The only (minor) issue is that on-line menu is quite different from the real menu. If pre-selecting something, you may verify that it's actually available.

The expectation was more than the experience! We traveled all the way from Florida to celebrate a birthday only to be told we couldn’t take photos of the city view because there was a wedding reception at the restaurant! Imagine the disappointment after spending so much on dinner. The noise from other guests celebrating a birthday was a bit much and cheapened the experience for us.

Overall an amazing time eating here. Loved the views and how well servers took care of us!

Only critique or advice I'd give is maybe have some Vegan options!

We went during COVID and they had a great set up. The food was amazing and service was great! They were out of the wine we selected but of course had a more expensive bottle - that was the only disappointment. Overall it was a great experience and highly recommend.

This was not a good experience as it begins with no parking and the pitch black night. Next, our server hardly checked on us and we waited an hour and a half for our entree. He wasn’t clear on the menu items which led to dissatisfied appetizers. Also, when he told us the special, they were out of stock. We didn’t have a table cloth on our table for some reason and I had to ask for a napkin. This was awful service and ultimately a terrible experience. I will not be returning and would not recommend anyone to go here.

Had a 7 pm reservation. Ordered one of their signature cocktails and was told it wasn’t offered at this time of year. Ordered an appetizer and was told they were out of my choice. Had the fried calamari instead. Very salty. The chicken parmigiana was just ok. My wife had the salmon dish and it was very good. This was our first time here. I guess we will give it a second chance. It’s all about the views.

Great disappointment.
Sitting outside is cold and no faculties to be warmed. Outdoor furniture is not for a restaurant but as in a cheap cafe. Service is ok but we got ordered wine only in the middle of our dinner. Food is overpriced and nothing special.
The view is gorgeous.

It was cold and their heaters did not work. We were shivering in the cold and then finally we came back home before the main course since it was so unbearable and the service staff showed so less empathy. The chairs were also low and not the right height.

It was husband’s 40 th birthday and we were there to celebrate that. They asked us what’s the special reason to be there and I explained and they didn’t not bring in any complementary dessert to celebrate. Also bread was cold, even on request no body bothered to ask again. My dish said grilled farm vegetables and it was Lima beans with the salmon. I loved the view but rest all was not up to mark.
