Had an early dinner there after a play at The SJ Performing Arts Theater. The wait staff was wonderful. We were not rushed at all. Food superior. On the 6th floor and a wonderful view of the city.

Very nice atmosphere, and the food is excellent and reasonably priced. Excellent service and reasonable wait time without a reservation. I highly recommend for a “Date” night or special occasion.

We had a wonderful meal with oysters, the Halibut cooked perfectly and my friend had the Eggplant and risotto. Excellent all around. We sat inside and the planes fly right at you from the 6th floor vantage point. Great to watch!
