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

    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.

    One of the most beautiful restaurant I have ever have dinner in. Great ambience. Lovely scenery. The cable car to get to the restaurant is so cute.

    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!

    Sirloin steak is the best! Make sure to enjoy the atmosphere. You might even be lucky enough to witness a marriage proposal too!
