Daughter, daughters-in-law and I were here for dessert at 9:30. We had a delightful waiter who was entertaining, enthusiastic and attentive. And the chocolate fondue was delicious. Would love to try the cheese fondue the dinner menu another time.

In my opinion, just average. We did the reverse happy hour and go the dark chocolate pot. Nothing tasted exceptionally great. Everything was just ok. My girlfriend loved it., Not sure I'd go here again.

Hello, the roof top of the parking garage unfortunately does not have an elevator, only stairs. Our restaurant does have our own personal elevator at ground level though. Hope this helps!
