Lovely food, lovely staff, great views. We ate here every night during our stay at the hotel. Food was always very good. Only negative was that the main menu didnt change over our 10 night stay.

We had cocktail hour and then some. Drinks and appetizers were excellent...not exactly inexpensive...but well worth the fantastic setting and impeccable service. A rare treat.

My wife and I had lunch here on an extremely rainy day. Our meals were excellent, and the service was impeccable. It is expensive but well worth cost. The dining room is absolutely beautiful. Would always return.
