Fun place to go, particularly if you're an aviation enthusiast. Food's great and the atmosphere: old school (which isn't a bad thing)! Very attentive servers! Try the salmon!

What a delightful surprise! This place has had an upgrade because they are under new management! The person they picked has enhanced the dining experience. We stopped going a while back and although the place is unusual and unique, the Sunday brunch was blah...well NOT ANYMORE. It was a lovely and yummy experience and a real surprise how much it had improved. Even the cappuccino sitting right next to the bar was a treat as we stopped to view the game on the TV there, and I saw it and tried it. YUMMM!!! Make sure you go all over the place because they've got the food set up everywhere. You can eat indoors or outside on the patio and watch (private and small) planes take-off and land. By each table there are headphones so if you're into that, you can listen to the flight control. Just don't know how often they clean the headphones, so I passed on that opportunity. I also love the fact that the parking is free. Call them to check on the price for the brunch, but I think it was around $50. per person. It's kind of far, but easy to get to with navigation. It is off the main street so be sure to look for your directions before you go. Enjoy!

The Sunday Buffet Brunch was excellent, as usual. Our server, Nathaly, was friendly, competent and professional - which added to a very enjoyable experience. The food selection was very good and the serving areas were maintained - proper temperatures and ample quantities. The desert were basically good, but more cake selection and some pies would be a good addition.

We went for drinks and appetizers at sunset. The view from the bar area is nice if you like watching planes depart and land. There are some unique aircraft that come into that airport. The drinks were good. Appetizers were just ok. We’ll go back again for drinks and the view.

Great spot for viewing the runways at Van Nuys Airport with OK food. The Cedar plank Salmon that was recently added to the menu is actually quite descent. They used to have artisan bread that was pretty good as well, but cheaped out and now just serve sliced Baguette which is OK, but nowhere near as tasty as the bread they used to serve. You come here for the ambiance more than the food these days. That said....we keep coming.

My grandson was exciting about airplane so close by. This is a good place for kids. My Open Table reservation was not acknowledge when we ckeck in. So we did not get our Drink special recognized. It seems to be a disconnect between Open Table reservation and what actually happen in your restrauant.

The two gentlemen in our group had the prime rib, and it was fine. I had the potpie, which was 90% peas. Very little chicken. The 4th person had the pasta primavera with chicken. She barely ate it, but did not want to cause a fuss. She said the dish was tasteless, and the chicken was awful. She did her best to use spices to enhance the dish, but in the end, she barely ate. As for the waiter, he was terribly inattentive. We had to ask other waiters for water, as he never returned to our table. We love the view and the location of your restaurant, however, we were disappointed with the service and the food (unless it was prime rib.)
Thank you.

Very nice dinner. Food was perfect. The waiter could have checked on us a tad more but that didn’t ruin anything. I love when my drink is kept refilled without it getting totally empty and having to wait for a refill. The atmosphere is really cool and staff is very friendly. We will definitely return.

Food quality does not seem to be as good as it used to be. My medium rare steak was mostly medium well. The outside was extremely charred and mostly tasted burnt. The garlic mashed potatoes were very dry. I used to really enjoy this place.
