Good night, food was good. I like the way the menu was designed, some very thoughtful dishes. A couple of dishes were under seasoned. The 'Tuscan Black Cabbage Slaw' was a really boring dish, baby cavolo leaves with julienne of carrot and squeeze of lemon juice is pretty underwhelming, thought it would be more of a South Carolina style slaw. Crab Raviolo was a good dish, fennel nage was good, lacked a bit of seasoning, could have used some fennel tops to finish, crab lacked a bit of seasoning and citrus too but overall a nice dish. Cured ocean trout was a well put together dish, seasoned well and garnished well, could have been sliced a little thinner so it was a bit more 'fine bouche'. Will definitely be back, ambience was cool and super friendly service staff. Hopefully a few more french drops on the wine menu next time ! A plus ! More

Amazing menu that caters to everyone’s taste. The portion sizes were spot on. Every mouthful was an OMG! The wait staff are extremely professional, friendly and knowledgeable on both the food and drinks menu. I’m so glad we went for lunch, as we got the opportunity to sit and take in the view of the station. This is definitely a place to put on your bucket list. More
