We were a party of 7 business associates attending a conference at the Hyatt Regency down Riverwalk. The climb up to the dining room from Riverwalk on bricks and stairs was not easy and not well lit. We were all seated at a comfortable round...More

Ate here alone while in town for a conference. Promptly seated on the outdoor terrace with a view of the Riverwalk, which was lovely. Had the roasted quail for an appetizer which was perfectly cooked, easy to debone, and had a great pate on top....More

This is a five-star restaurant in every respect. After learning that it was our anniversary, we were seated at a wonderfully cozy table and provided with complementary champagne and truffles! The food and service were impeccable and I would highly recommend going there!

As the others have said, yes. It is terraced up the hill from the Riverwalk. Strongly suggest reservations as far in advance as possible if you want to sit outside with the best view.
