We had the pre-fix menu which includes soup or salad, entree and dessert. Each of us got something different and it was all delicious!

The prix fixe menu is a great way to enjoy a three course meal, and enjoy a little more time soaking in the view. We are glad everything was delicious and hope you will return soon. Warm regards, Nate S.
