The food here was to die for. The presentation of each entree was created to perfection. The service, well, they couldn't do enough for you. Oh, the lemon poppyseed mousse I still dream about.

Eaten here half a dozen times (all for breakfast), very good food yet expensive. Recommend the pancakes or french toast.

What we liked - the view, the building, the interior - it is an absolutely beautiful restaurant. My seafood dish was delicious. What we disliked - the bread was only so, so. My husband's chicken dish was too salty for his taste. Very small portion.

This is absolutely fine dining. Can't say anything negative. The dessert souffle of the day is a must. It could be pricy, but what true fine dining isn't? For some, this can be a regular occurrence, for the rest of us this is a real...More
