                                                  First time there, went for brunch. Service was excellent, great views and I think 52 dollars for brunch is pretty good. The only think I would suggest is maybe adding another dish or 2 for more variety , oh and the creme brulee could be a bit better, but I enjoyed myself, the blackened salmon was really tasty, I will be back.

                                                  Very pricey $52 /person. Food was not that exceptional for the price. Far different from the old Castaway Restaurant breakfast brunch. It was a 3 course meal, food was not that great , let’s just say I would have gotten the same taste eating at Denny’s. With the quality of food and the price I wouldn’t recommend this place.

                                                  The food and service was excellent. My only gripe was that the decor and furniture was a bit lacking. The outside chairs had peeling paint and chips, and was overall a bit cheap when looking at a comparable price to a place such as the mission inn. If they can pay a bit closer detail to the cleanliness of the outside seating and areas it would be a much better experience.

                                                  Great location with a scenic view of the city, perfect for date night. Food was cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly. Highly recommend to reserve at 6:30 as there is hardly anyone and it can most likely be you and your partner.

                                                  Great service by our waiter. Beautiful views and patio was nice and clean. Super excited to enjoy a beautifully cooked Fulton Mignon however it was over cooked.

                                                  I ordered the salmon from the brunch menu, when it Came out, it looked amazing but when I cut into the middle it was raw inside. I sent it back. 15 minutes later I was returned the same salon piece just extra cooked. You’d think with Covid they would’ve given a new piece of salmon but it was the same one… and Unfortunately the salmon, rice and veggies all came out Extra salty. To the point where you couldn’t swallow it. I feel the blackened seasoning was too salty and it took over the whole dish. I had to spit out the rice because of extra saltiness. To top it off. My date ended up waiting for me to get my salmon fixed that his steak And eggs became cold and we’re too cold to eat….

                                                  I can not blame to much on the waitress/manager. She helped us with our kids to have adult menu at the kids price. My guess is that’s why I didn’t get a bill adjustment or discount at the end. Due to the fact that we weren’t takin care of for several minutes after seating. She blamed the other waitress for that. Okay fine the other waitress was at fault, that’s none of my business. Felt kinda like there maybe tension with the workers at this establishment. She did the best she could, I admit that fully. But when she brought out the molding chocolate cake that killed the whole high-end dining experience for us. Seems this restaurant is trying to make it happen there, but just don’t have the experience. The food was mediocre my shrimp cocktail was watery. The blackened salmon was too salty, the grilled diced potatoes were oil soaked. I paid $156 for two adults and two children. I believe this place is more about location and the quality of food. My wife and I always say, you never know till you try. Good luck to this place. It has a lot of potential.

                                                  Went here for my second wedding anniversary. The calamari was not edible, we returned it. My wifes salmon was overcooked and dry. The food was subpar. I had creme brulee for dessert it was a liquid. I would not recommend this place. Nothing good to say at all.

                                                  Banquet is somewhat outdated and needs to be updated. Its the same décor that I saw 20 years ago.

                                                  They brought me the check before getting our desert to our table, we paid for everything and as soon as we get the desert we found a duty nail in it, it was definitely disgusting. We just got up and leave the place. Customer service was really good, the hostess was really nice too. But your personal definitely need to pay more attention on the food.

                                                  My waiter forgot my shrimp that I paid extra for. By the time I got it my steak was cold and the shrimp was bland. Also way overpriced for kids food.

                                                  Unfortunately my eggs were over cooked and I only had sauce on one of them and my potatoes were warm not hot. My daughters waffles were all over cooked and she couldn't eat them. She specifically asked for no caramel on her cheese cake but got it anyway. I know he was busy with big tables but we should have mattered too. The only reason I would recommend this restaurant is because I have been before and had great food.

                                                  The worse customer service I have ever experience in the food industry. They do not care about their customers. They are also dishonest and do not keep their word. Be aware they WILL process unauthorized charges, when I did not even dinned there.

                                                  This is the 2nd time I've gone since it opened after the lockdown. The waiter was very nice and was on top of things, he did mess up on one of the orders, but he fixed the problem immediately. My family really likes the restaurant so we will be going back again soon.

                                                  Amazingly different since the change of ownership. We’re seated promptly and greeted with earnest enthusiasm. Our waiter was very attentive, answering questions asked and finding out the answers to those he could not. Prime rib was perfection as was the salmon. Highly recommended those seeking an intimate dining experience.
