We bought a bottle of wine from them, then they tried to charge $10/glass for using their glasses. At least they didn't charge us for using cutlery and dishes I suppose. Food very average and expensive - won't be back

Staff were nice, but food was average. A little expensive. Enjoyed looking out above the houses. They could work on presentation in the restaurant and professionalism.

Don't even bother! I think we were served re-heated leftovers from the previous night - fortunately this was a work function so the boss was paying. Most of the people in our group agreed that they wouldn't be returning.
