We had a lunch buffet in this restaurant. It was the best buffet possible. All the food was of the highest quality. The service was impeccable. The restaurant was extremely comfortable. You could eat at a slow pace. One wishes one could stay there forever.

Happened on this place. Buffet dinner only ...at $60. You can't beat the view, the service or the quiet unhurried atmosphere but the food was very blah and the drinks too strong. Generic salads and desserts. Nice salmon in puff pastry but dry. Forgettable food....More
