The atmosphere is elegantly upscale, with low lighting and candles on every table. If you can tear your eyes away from the view outside, you’ll be delighted with the ceiling of the restaurant, which sports a painting of the deep night sky.
Reservations are required and dress style is suggested as “casual business.” Expect to pay about $50 each for this unique dining experience.
As an alternative, try the Eagle’s Nest lounge for just a drink and the same magnificent view. If you go on a Friday or Saturday evening, you’ll also enjoy the live piano music there.
