While the food had wonderful flavor, we felt as though we were left waiting for more. My fillet was cooked perfectly however I could've used more. My wife had the lamb and was left severely underwhelmed. The flavor was divine however three 1/2" pieces are not enough to constitute a meal.

The price was not worth the view and small portion sizes. more

This review is for the bar, and whether you want to be here for the bar or the restaurant, it's difficult to get in unless you have a reservation. I was turned away as a walk-in on a Saturday night, but made it in early in the afternoon the next day.

Once you get in, you can understand why gaining entrance is so tough to begin with. The wrap-around bar "island" is actually rather small and,... more
