Had the special they have for summer and I am not sure what cuts of meats they were but both great and super juicy. The restaurant itself is in a super nice plaza and the staff were great ... the only bad part was that you are not allowed to add tip, I think for the service they provided 20%... More

The only "but" I have against this place is that the last time I have breakfast there, they served me an egg fried in very hot oil, so, it formed hard bubbles. Eggs must be fried over low heat. When I go to a restaurant, I expect to eat better that at home. This was not the case that time.

View was why we originally decided to go to this restaurant, as on a clear day you can see forever. We went right before sunset so that we could see both day and night. Started with shrimp and butternut squash soup, and both were excellent. Great flavors and the shrimp was perfectly cooked. My husband, a huge carnivore, declared the... More

We had Spinach Malfatti as entre; maybe too much sauce nevertheless the sauce was more tasty than malfatti itself. As main course, short ribs was the option. But it was not so good due to two reasons: 1) the pieces were the most thin I ever had in my lifetime, and 2) the meat was a bit harder even it... More
