I was entertaining my 7 and 6 year old grandchildren after taking them to see The Lion King.
My 7 year old granddaughter announced, after reading the children's menu, "This is my dream menu...Penne and Lemonade"!

The waiter was particularly kind with the younger set and the outdoor ice skating view provided to be entertaining for all.

Thank you.

As always, a fabulous meal. Window seating, allowed my daughter to watch the skaters in awe. We were lucky, we saw a man propose to his girlfriend. Fortunately, she said yes!! Love the food choices.

We had a delicious breakfast overlooking the Skating Rink. The blueberry pancakes were delicious. Very large and lots of blueberries.

This is a pretty restaurant over looking the ice rink. it was very quiet for a Friday evening. We had a Kale salad app and it was very good. We got the Skirt steak and the red snapper fish filet special. The skirt steak was very tough and not very good it was served with Brussel sprouts and a horseradish sauce which were both excellent. The fish was really tasteless and forgettable . Overall I like the place but the food was a bust. Service was good and everyone was very friendly

Horrible experience. Everyone got their food before me. When my family was finished eating, my steak finally came out raw. Our waitress said another server "stole" it for their table. The manager made it clear that she didn't have time to deal with it or so much at apologize to us. I can't believe that a restaurant manager would be that dismissive and degrading when her restaurant made a huge mistake. She has zero business in customer service. It was beyond rude & I didn't eat dinner that night. I highly recommend dining anywhere in the city but here.
