With beautiful mountain views, we enjoyed dinner served by friendly, efficient Dana. Particularly delicious was my chicken pot pie; I don't recall having a better one. From the shrimp cocktail starter to the crème brulee dessert, everything was perfect. Reservations are necessary.

This restaurant was a bit more formal than we anticipated but dressing casually is still fine. The service was good and the food was equally good - a nice treat after a busy day!

Our meal at the Mountain View restaurant was very expensive and disappointing. My husband had the chicken breast, which seemed to be two pressed pieces of re-constituted chicken, with an unusual taste. I fared better with Alaskan salmon, broccoli and some sort of pasta –...More
