“Good food, good service, great view”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We had a good experience here for our Monday lunch. I ordered the Santa Fe chicken burger, others had prime rib panini (on the specials list), and halibut tacos. We all enjoyed our food and had prompt service. We'll be back to try other meals as well.

“Nice view outside, dark inside”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

We were seated at one of the high table unfortunately. Wish we had a window seat. Waiter was pleasant and the place was packed. Food not bad. We both had burgers. The ceaser drink was great!! We'll be back but not with a vengeance.

“Slow and dreadful”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Lovely place for a restaurant with a great view and nice decor.

Our group of six went there for lunch on Friday afternoon. We told the server we were on a lunch break and had meetings to make. Didn't see him again for over twenty minutes. The place was not full but did seem badly understaffed.

One of our party ordered food to go, paid up front - a salad and was the last to be served by at least ten minutes. Our orders were taken incorrectly, wrong food and someone who stayed was served to go (she ate out of the container). The waiter was nice but didn't have the time to make it right and was distracted by other guests.

The clam chowder was good but the rest of the food was average at best. I did not finish my meal and left a $20.00 bill on the table as our lunch hour had stretched to nearly two hours. Never heard some of my friends swear like that before - it was a frustrating experience.

The place looks nice but is disorganized, understaffed and the food was disappointing. There appears to be a real communication gap between the wait and kitchen staff.
Don't go here unless you have a lot of time, are retired or just want to enjoy the view.
Not good for families or anyone with small children.
Not good for working class people on a schedule and a budget.

A very disappointing experience - we will not return.

“Trots”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

Saturday afternoon, closed event in the upper floor so lunch in the lower level bistro. Had the mushroom melt on Focaccia bread and a couple beers. Within two hours and the rest of the afternoon the bathroom was a very important room. Service, view and decor very good. Obviously not afraid to serve grub gone bad. Too bad. No, not looking for a free meal or apology. Just cleanup.

“Fantastic view”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

With a lovely view it's too bad they don't have the food to go with it. I waited two years for the restaurant to be built, and as I live in the area thought I would be there frequently. On three different occasions I gave them a chance to prove themselves to no avail. They couldn't even do a good eggs benedict, the menu is not interesting and the price expensive.
