    This was our first visit to Stories on High. We took our out of town friends there before the Clipper’s game. It was a perfect experience. Our waitress was attentive, prompt, and a pleasure. The food and drinks were great; as was the incredible view. We will definitely go back.

    It was way to loud with the DJ. We would have stayed longer but we couldn’t hear each other.

    Views were nice and the cocktails and food were good. We reserved a table for three but were put at a bar table that was only for two people. Shuffling drinks and plates all night was not ideal. If I were to go back I would go for happy hour for a couple drinks and a few small plates rather then for dinner.

    Had a really nice evening here! Was my third time coming. The ambiance does not disappoint, and the food, while very small almost tapas style, is very tasty and the quality is there for sure. The food took a while to come out but overall our server was very kind and also the main host/manager was being very helpful.

    First visit here. Really enjoyed the venue. Great views. Food was excellent. The servers and bartenders were working their tails off. And it showed. We didn't lack for anything. I would definitely recommend reservations. We look forward to going again when it's warmer to enjoy the outdoor patios. We'll be back.
