    Nice view but watch your personal items in summer I have been here several times and the food is always very good, but the service is just too slow at least for a business lunch. Also, to note, and not the fault of the restaurant, but my purse was stolen from under my chair during lunch. Be very careful when you sit outside as there is a public walkway right behind your table.

    Giant servings Who knew that when you ordered the chicken you would get the ENTIRE chicken? We didn't. Nor did we know personal pizza meant a size medium. Or when you ordered the cake, you got 1/3rd of the whole cake. I can only imagine what their dishes for two would be. The portion sizes were WAY TOO LARGE. It was ridiculous. We hadn't gone in that hungry and were just astounded. It explains the prices being so high - for a 10 oz filet when I am accustomed to maybe half that at other fine dining establishments - but wow. Nice view. Big prices. Huge food (sometimes more quantity than quality as was the case for the tuna which was a bit dry, and the medium rares that were more medium).. And the side dishes are extra.

    I was expecting much more. I ordered perhaps the fattiest sirloin I've ever eaten. I ate maybe half of it after I had to trim so much off. I ordered it with the cajun seasoning which COMPLETELY covered the flavor of the steak. It could have been ANY meat because it was so heavily seasoned (perhaps I should not have ordered it that way, but the seasoning level was just ridiculous). On the plus side, my wife had the simply grilled filet and it was VERY good. VERY tender. We also had the angry shrimp appetizer which was very good. I guess the lesson here is to avoid the sirloin and avoid the cajun seasoning at all costs because it will just ruin your meal. Also, the waitstaff was very good and the manager even came over to check on us. Very friendly staff.

    Lots to like here, quality steaks and monster -sized portions. Good venue for a nosh in the bar or a corporate event, too.

    Convenient location, good experience. Was at a hotel nearby for business last year and ate here one night. My memory of it was: The wait staff was friendly. The meal was delicious. The portion was filling. Overall, a fine experience. Good for business dining.
