    It's a beautiful restaurant. The service was great, from the hostess to the server. Recommended for a special occasion. We were celebrating our anniversary and they treated us well.

    I ate here last on Thursday night when all Seafood dinners are $20. So glad I chose the Pacific Rim Salmon! It was wonderfully delicious. I can't wait to go back for this dish again.

    Riding the trolley is fun but walking down the stairs through the garden is better and you can always ride the trolley back up the hill when you leave

    A good time in a beautiful spot. Nothing particularly modern here: a good martini and a delicious menu of 20th century continental greatest hits. Only thing missing is the smoking section.

    The prime rib was spectacular and the mashed potatoes were exquisite. I also enjoyed the frozen strawberry drink.

    Beautiful setting, great service thanks to Wyatt, our awesome waiter, and delicious food! We had pork chop, filet mignon, and the prime rib: all 3 were very tender and flavorful.

    Loved the cable car. Chicken sandwich and artichoke pizza were great. Jack Daniel’s whisky mud pie was really good

    The Caramel Appletini and the seared ahi appetizer were great. The molten chocolate dessert seemed like the best bet - wouldn’t recommend the apple pie.

    Check dress code requirements, although not strictly enforced when we were there. Use Shadowbrook cab if not from the area. Arrive early and walk down (take cable car after meal). Butcher's Filet!!!

    This place is so unbelievably cool & gorgeous! The food is fantastic!! Make reservations tho & arrive early evening so you still have light out to walk the gardens which they get their herbs from!

    One of the prettiest restaurants I've been to. Food and drinks were average. Menu a bit dated.
