We went in for drinks and appetizers, they were just ok. Later in the week we order sliders. We laughed so hard when we opened our container and there were burgers that were less than quarter size. The smallest sliders we have ever seen. Definitely...More

Really nice place to go for a drink (I've been drinking Cosmopolitan and it was one of the best I've been drinking in my whole life!). The view over the City it's just beautiful. Good place to go to hang out with friends.
