  • Owned by a big-chain company/restaurant but still a beautiful building to go look at. Food is great and at decent prices. Gives you a fancy/old-school vibe, nonetheless still a nice place to eat at. Wait times are expected as is very busy and close to one of the busiest tourist areas in the city, but definitely worth the wait. The second floor has great views!
  • This place was awesome. The first floor has paintings of plants on the wall. Second floor must have been a ballroom with cream color walls and awesome chandeliers. I had a drink comprised of sparkling mineral water, lime and salt....reminded me of a margarita minus the tequila! My fave drink now. A must see!
