Water was good but downhill from there! Sat for 30 minutes with no service. Asked for assistance. Finally gave up and left! Thinking of sending them a bill for my time. Couldn't pay me to go back!

My husband had appetizers one evening and a late lunch another day. The food was fresh and perfectly done. The weather was pleasant so we were able to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful landscaping. My dietary issue was very well accommodated!

Had the breakfast buffet at Muze, they have an excellent choice of pastries, lox, bagels, jams, eggs were cooked to perfection. There's also the option of having miso and dim-sum for breakfast, which is typical for Asia but unusual this side of the Pacific.
