    The food was simply delicious! I loved everything from start to finish, the only thing I have to complain about is the parking situation, valet parking is very hectic in a very busy road going towards the highway not sure if it’s always been this way but hopefully they change it the future besides that I loved everything. Will definitely come back but next time I’m not driving lol

    Incredible special event venue (birthday, special date, anniversary, celebration, etc.) Yes, expensive...paying for excellent service, terrific staff, gorgeous views, beautiful room, upscale vibe and ambience. Food was good - some things better than others. US Bank Building currently under renovation...not restaurant's fault. However, excellent valet service at street level, and helpful security staff to guide you to correct elevators to reach restaurant.

    We went for our anniversary. The food was great! They offer a three course menu; wine pairing optional. I ordered the octopus, cod and the chocolate dessert. My husband ordered the pasta, rib eye and the strawberries and cream dessert. The wine pairing was also very nice. We look forward to coming back!

    Most of people are going for the window table don’t give people hope when you cannot guarantee it. Limit your seating more and have an option to chose the table during reservation. It just makes people not want to go back again. Food is so average people are going for your marketing.

    No continuity or consistency in service. Service is lacking - not what you would expect from a high end restaurant. That said, the ambiance and food are outstanding. The pre fixe, 3 course menu has a thoughtful variety of options.

    The best thing about this was the view. Food was either too salty or under flavored. I got the fish was a bit overcooked and chewy but my brother thought it was good. The Christy octopus was not crispy but it was tender. The desserts were okay. Nothing was really my favorite. The farm fresh salad was surprisingly good but it was like 80% lettuce, a small slice of cheese, and like 5 radish slices.

    Great food and great service. They made a mistake with my order but they had no issue correcting and expiditing my order. I ordered the Wagyu but they gave me the Ribeye instead. It was okay, because once I got the Wagyu it was super delicious and worth the wait. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Overall it was a great experience.

    Birthday dinner. Food was ok, not great. I ordered the rib eye cooked rare-medium. It had no char on the outside almost like it was baked. Steak was also cooked medium-well. Other than that everything was awesome. Great service from all employees.

    Really disappointed!!!! Server took forever to come to the table . Had to ask everyone walking by to at least bring water. Got the prefix menue. Meat came COLD. How do you service cold steak and only offer to reheat it? We asked to have it remaid. They didn’t remake it they REHEATED IT!! What scam and shameful process.

    Best advice to get a window seat, book an early dinner (5:00-6:30pm). Did the 3 course meal with my family and it was worth every penny, from the ambiance to the service to the food itself. Every bite was delicious, and don’t let the portion sizes fool you, after 3 courses you will be full! Visited this restaurant multiple times in the past and I am always pleased with the experience.

    The ambiance was of course phenomenal, the service impeccable, the food was ok. My pork came out well above medium and ribeye’s at the table were cooked appropriately, but lacked flavor. This was overall ok and passable, but could also use improvement in execution.
