I've been here numerous times and consistently found the atmosphere great, the food, fair, and the service, fair! Not much else to say unless you just like to sip and chat, and take in the beautiful views! A "little pricey" for what you get!

We walked in at 10pm not expecting to get dinner since the sign said closed at 9pm, but they sat us and had our dinner shortly after. Great service.
