    Slow service. Food made us ill. Do not understand why it is recommended other than the views but only if you are on outside patio. Wine list also weak

    4/4 people were very happy with their food and had nothing to complain about. It was such a well-appointed place to sit and the service from a new French guy who had apparently been in Canada for only 3 weeks was exceptional - just the right level of attentiveness. Would easily go back.

    Beautiful space, great service, delicious food. Really loved the cheeseburger after a long day's hike. The cocktails were good too, but maybe a little too heavy on the ice. A warm cocktail option would also be nice (like a warm version of the After Eight that's on the menu would be sublime).
