We sat on the rooftop deck for dinner. The service was terrible. Disorganized, very slow and not particularly friendly. Our food was not much better. We were very disappointed as we had heard very good things about the restaurant.More

You will see a little of everything. It is California! I would highly recommend the rooftop dining. The view is amazing. There is a breeze, but they also have heaters they can put by your table.
