They sure know how to surprise guests and “enhance” the experience. Once we were seated, the waiter handed each of us an iPad. That’s right, an iPad for each one of us with an interactive menu pre-loaded. Even though you can’t really order directly to the kitchen, and still have to read off each of the items to the waiter, I guess it’s something that you will remember them by. Anyways, enough about the menu. The tempura California roll wasn’t the first time I’ve had it, but it was a pretty safe selection for the appetizer along with the crab cakes. For the entree, unfortunately they didn’t have the cured & smoked salmon like mentioned in the menu, so the pasta was missing a bit of a kick. The spaghetti was pretty regular as well, but the cornmeal crusted trout was pretty good with a crispy skin. For dessert, the chocolate torte with ice cream was really good – excellent way to finish off the meal.

Personally I thought the menu should’ve been $28 for its value, then again you might get a good view during the daytime instead of being dark and foggy that night.

Below is my selection:
Appetizer: Crab Duo – mini crab cakes & tempura California roll
Entrée: – Seafood Cappellini – baby shrimps, capers, lemon cream & tobiko
Dessert: – Warm Chocolate Torte with ice cream

Overall I give it a 7.5.
