The service was fast, it was crowded for a Monday, but understandably, because the food and the views were great. Nice romantic date night. It is dress nice, but business or date dressy casual is perfect.

Wonderful views, great service but it certainly doesn't offer the intimate dining it offered at the original location. Well prepared meals all around with good noise control. About $75 pp with no alcohol and a shared dessert.
