I haven't been in a couple of years, but I remember the views and the menu were great.

But I've heard mixed reviews lately.

What do you think?

    We were there a couple of Saturdays ago, our first visit and using a gift card we'd received. We enjoyed it and would return on our own dime.

    Obviously the location and restaurant are beautiful. We opted to sit inside (allergies) but could still enjoy the view. I had the lamb spring rolls with tzatsiki sauce, which were really delicious -- flavorful, not greasy, a nice-sized portion. My husband had crab legs which, well, tasted like crab legs. They were fine. Entrees we had pasta with sausage, peas and gorgonzola cream sauce -- delicious but too rich too finish -- and the cowboy cut rib eye. We also had a side of a carrot/raisin/mint salad which had very interesting flavors and was a nice addition. We also had the golden almond cake -- divine! not too sweet -- and something else I can't recall for dessert.

    Our bill, with 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 1 side, 2 desserts, 2 mojitos, 1 glass of wine, and coffee, plus tax, came to about $170. (We were trying to use up a $200 gift!) So, to me, that seems like it was reasonably priced.

    Two downsides: we had an inattentive server, though all other service (bus boys, drinks) was prompt. Although our food was delivered in good time we had to wait forever to finally pay the bill. And, my husband's rib eye was half the thickness you'd get in any steak house, at the same price. Well prepared, but disappointing in size.

    I'd go.

      The views are great, but I thought it was way overpriced for the quality of food.
