Staff was all very nice. Will definitely be back for more dinners.
Our Waiter, Mike did an outstanding job.
The dinner at the top of the mountain was awesome. We did this for our 20th wedding anniversary and it was a great dinner night for my wife and I. Service was awesome and the food was amazing.
The food was never hot, judt warm and clams in broth should be piping hot. Salad portions increased as the evening got later tables served. Salad was underdresstand I asked for a side of olive oil. Servers were sweet but not used to a fine dining experience. Felt for the money it should have rocked.
Everything was great, the food was delicious and the view was stunning!
The sunset was spectacular and the food amazing. All great. I had told them it was my husband's bd, so I was hoping for a candle in his dessert. That would have been a nice touch. Oh well. Still great food and great views.
What matters the most here is the view, and that alone makes this a 10/10 experience. I will be back and I will enjoy it as much as I did this time. The food was good, but there is definitely room for improvement on the main courses. The tataki was over seasoned in general and very salty. We also had the rib eye which was cooked a bit beyond what I normally would consider medium rare, and the french fries were a bit lack luster. We would have paid more to enjoy a better meal with the view. The service was great, and everyone was just lovely :).
We had a very nice time. Thank you so much! I'll be back again as soon as I can afford it. lol
The view is fantastic. Food was great. We did not like the cocktail, a margarita.
We enjoyed a delicious and well prepared meal in one of the most scenic locations in the Northwest. The Farm to Table meal was quite a bit with our family.
All of us really enjoyed our dinner and look forward to returning
The food was very good. The Ambiance is very bare-bones. Wait staff was very polite. Unfortunately there was no view because it had fogged-up.
Food was prepared and presented with great care. Spacious seating separating dining parties. I felt comfortable. Memorable!
Experience turned out simply great. I have already recommend to others and plan on returning my self. Thanks for the great evening.
There were no red meat options, and nothing was hot. The chickpea pancake was so bland I traded it in for the mahi mahi, but that needed some sauce as it was bland too. This was not a $250 value for two people. I had higher expectations it would feel more like a gourmet dinner.
The food and service were great. We had 7:30pm reservations and felt the server was really rushing us. The best part was Mt. Rainier coming out at the end!
A decent value, all things considered. A couple of the dishes weren't that great to me, but everyone's palate is different. The view and the gondola ride make it well worth it.
First, Julie , our server was incredible, friendly, kind, helpful!!!! The crab cakes appetizer was served lukewarm, should have been warm at minimum. Coffee and tea water no t hot either. The salad wasn't fresh. We had a 730 seating pm, so maybe things had sat too long. 250.00 for dinner didn't make my dinner up there worthy. Julie, however, was exceptional!!!!!
The weather was perfect. Clear skies and warm temperatures. The mountain seemed as if we could touch it. The gondola ride was fun, as usual. Quite a beautiful introduction to the evening. We were a little disappointed in the restaurant. The cost of the experience led us to expect a more formal experience. Instead, it was business-as-usual. The server was attentive and friendly, but the food was below par. A medium rare steak showed up raw and fatty. The tuna was smothered in pepper. All in all, the day was saved by the glorious view and dining a the top of the world.
