    Absolutely fabulous meal. We had friends from out of town and this meal was the highlight of their trip. The view was stunning, the charcuterie was amazing, the dinner was perfect with great service. Our friends were impressed with the extensive non-alcoholic choices for drinks and loved the zero-lush sparkling drink. It’s our go-to stop for any visitors, highly recommend!!

    We booked or table over 2 weeks ago and we felt check in was very long! We had to wait 20 minutes for the host to seat us. She kept disappearing even though we had a reservation. Why were there empty tables and she was walking around to find us a table. Once seated we had to wait over an hour for our food! No one came to tell us or apologize that our food was taking so long. Once our food did arrive it was very good. Ambiance was lacking. Around us were empty tables just pushed to the side that were not being used. For a resort the restaurant needs to be way more organized and when you walk in you want to say wow just like the views. Where are the white table cloths for the prices we pay. It was a disappointing first experience. Restaurant knew they were going to be busy as it was Father’s day so please be more organized.

    The food was fabulous, I had a burger and it was the best burger I have had in a long time. The prices were comparable to other places.

    This is where we went after our wedding night, and had such a wonderful experience that we came back to celebrate our 1st anniversary. Our server, Molly, who served us last year as well, was just as amazing, friendly and personable as the first time. The view is breathtaking, the food delicious and the staff are friendly and amazing at what they do.

    The restaurant was never that busy but service was pretty slow. If you go, have patience. When the food is good, it is great. The staff is also super nice! Very personable. We dined here 4 times during our stay, 5 if you count the mimosas after our massage. Breakfast food was amazing! Dinner could use a little work. My husband’s salmon was under cooked one night and the lobster was over cooked the other night. The other dishes we had were great. Our last morning, there was a piece of glass in the champagne glass and my husband almost swallowed it. They paid for our mimosas but then we sat with empty glasses for over 30mins before we got our breakfasts and were not asked if we wanted anything more to drink.

    What a shame - this spot has every chance to be special. The view is amazing. Unfortunately, the service was horrible. It was exceptionally slow and unthoughtful. Here are some disappointing highlights: - we noted in the reservation that we were celebrating our engagement. Not a single acknowledgment - it took ~15 minutes to receive service when we sat and ~30 minutes from arriving to receiving our drinks - the server took my order and then… didn’t take my partner’s? She had to come back and ask for his - she confused the dietary restrictions on the dishes so I had to change my order - they brought the wrong order for my partner and it took about 20 minutes to bring his actual order - the food was unremarkable. Very basic. - they brought us the bill and overcharged us. She defended charging us for “adding scallops” to the Pan Seared Scallop Risotto. Seems like the kind of thing that includes scallops, no? - I thought it was remarkable that given how poor the service was that, on top of over charging, they didn’t acknowledge the poor service or offer any sort of discount on the bill. They either had no idea how poor the service was or they were apathetic. Both are unfortunate possibilities. I will say the one positive of our evening was the sommelier. He was a ton of fun, knowledgeable and the only person who seemed to grasp how pathetic our experience was. So for the view and the sommelier, 2 stars. We left a 15% tip for that. Otherwise, nothing positive to say.
