The presentation of the food was nice except the food quality was less than expected. The braised short ribs I ordered was chewy and stringy. The preparation of the salad my wife ordered was drenched in salad dressing. She took 2 to 3 bites and...More

Beautiful greenery and views. Wonderful cocktails and food. Great desserts -- the basket of cookies was my favorite.

We had chowder, salad and pasta for lunch while we waited for check-in. We said we would share and dishes were served in two halved portions, which was very convenient for us. Everything was pretty good, but chowder was not hot enough. Fettucini with eggplant...More
