My husband surprised me by taking me here for our anniversary. The view was exceptional, the food was good, but we both felt that our server was mediocre. The rest of the staff was excellent.

The food here was excellent. The service professional, but brusque. Our waitress seemed to be just pretending to be friendly. She ignored some diners, especially a chubby couple. Despite the excellent food, I thought it was overpriced. Would not visit again. Most interesting were bronzes...More
