It really is in a prime location and the view is amazing. Sadly, the food is overpriced for what it is , the service is below average and the wait for drinks is sort of ludicrous. Too that off with more vacuous, shiny skinned, mobile...More

An absolute disgrace. Horrible service. Poor management (David, the manager is a disgrace). Substandard food. I would not recommend going here on a Sunday. The crowd is awful. So disappointing for an establishment with so much potential.
