The view is worth the trip, have a dinner at sunset. The aged steaks are pretty good, not excellent, but enjoy them while watching the sunset. The hostess, not very friendly, gruff, have to push for a window view, and wait which is fair. Waitress lukewarm.

The views here are amazing, delicious food, great service. The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is the decor is not great. Carpet on the floor and stairs was kinda gross. But if you stop looking down at the carpet and look at the view while you eat your delicious grilled kielbasa, you won't care about the carpet! Kitchen... More

We went to the incline and had to eat so decided to try this for the view on a perfect night. The steak was some of the best ever had. All the food was good. The local Riverstone Red Ale on tap was one of the best beers I've ever had too. Try the grilled veggies if they have them.... More

The only aspect of this restaurant that is 5 stars is the view. The food is average, which is fine, but not when you're paying $30+ a plate. Very disappointing for a $113 dinner. The calamari was rubbery. The crab stuffed jumbo shrimp was tough and rubbery and the broccoli was barely cooked. However, the roasted red potatoes and the... More

We were looking for a bar to go-to with family that was in for the holidays. I have been here once before but it an awesome view and great place to show off the city. I need to come here more often.

The service was poor at best. The server was not interested in her job. When I bit into my martini olive and hit a pit, I had to ask for a napkin and the server ask...What is a "pit". The food was fair, the room was noisy with kitchen noise, plates clattering, and the servers scraping plates in plain view.... More

I suppose given it is a high traffic tourist area because of the incline and view of the city, it will maintain appeal. We thought the food was ok but overpriced and the service a bit slow. If it wasnt for the location, the business would have suffered by now.

We had a large group on the balcony seating area at the top of the restaurant. It was an amazing view - the food was wonderful - light and fresh - and the service was terrific. It could not have been a nicer evening. Thank you!
