    Had the best table by the window for sunset with my girls. Great service and vibe. Food does need work still. Steak was bland, needed less spice and more salt. Tuna tartar needed better presentation and citrus. Fries could have been better also. Great views and good wine selection.

    The view might be the draw, and a good one, but when paired with the food, something magical happens. The food is very well made. The side of Brussels sprouts are some the best I’ve ever had. Got the strip loin which was incredible.

    Nice ambience. To get there, you have to go to the office building and then take the elevators. It's not part of The Well . Service was slow. I waited for 10 min to get seated ( I had reservations). Another 15 min to have a server approach us and obviously couldn't get more happy hour drinks because of the stalling. Sushi was good. Fries was too soggy. Washrooms could be cleaner. If you like a Lakeview, hotel x offers better patio and view vibe.

    Very disappointed. Service was very slow and food was decent ( could be better ) but cocktails were underwhelming for the price we paid .. for spending about $150 you would expect lot for more from this .. welcome experience was also not so great .. so much potential for this well done place , views are unbeatable

    Not a good experience they will make you sit somewhere else and make you stay there for a long time and they won’t be able to move you because they say that they’re too busy. The hostess are not nice and nobody really helps here. It’s overpriced the food isn’t that good and it’s small the only thing that’s nice of you, I won’t be back

    Overall, our visit to the restaurant was good, but there was insufficient staff on duty which caused delays. The waiter was unable to keep up, so after we finished eating, there were many plates left on the table for quite some time without being cleared. Additionally, it took too long to flag down the waiter for assistance.
