Hubby and I just needed a quiet night away from reality and this was perfect. Such a relaxed, yet Covid abiding, night at dinner. Food was fantastic and worth the amount spent! Waitress was phenomenal....professional but welcoming! Just what we needed!

Very nice place to eat, waitress was very good, yet I found a very long hair in my food, actually fried into it.

I would have given 5 stars however there was a family who just came from the pool in there bathing suits who were allowed into the restaurant and I know the attire is smart casual however it wasn’t enforced.

Admittedly, haven't been to the restaurant in 10 years but it was definitely not what I remembered. Fine dining is probably a stretch... somewhere between a pub and casual. Limited menu, food was just OK, service was average and unlike before, it felt like I was dining in a hotel restaurant versus the restaurant having it's own identity.

Horizons is our favorite restaurant. Friday, Oct 30 you could see the impact of covid. High wine prices, VERY limited menu, $48 strip steak. It certainly is not the upscale restaurant I now miss. Think of it for now as a upscale tavern. Not a special night out. I understand the circumstances, but i was so disappointed.

Good dinner. Very good waiter. Would’ve been nice to have more elegant music. Heard some Ariana Grande all top 40’s pop seemed out of place for such a nice restaurant.

The view of the sunset was great as was our server Marco. However, it's an expensive restaurant and wasn't worth the price. The tuna appetizer was tasteless and had veins in it. The broccolini was served cold. The lobster and venison were both good but for that price, each meal should have included one small side.
