I had the Grilled Miller's Amish Chicken, the Ensalada Verde and the Creme Catalena for dessert. All were prepared well and delicious. Food is expensive but worth it. Service was good and the view is fantastic.

By the time you combine a great happy hour-Tuesdays and Thursdays-along with the great view of Grand Rapids, you can't go wrong in this upscale restaurant. We tried several appetizers, all were outstanding. Plus the added bonus of FREE valet parking.
