    Great view and great interior. Disappointing food. Tastes bad, seasoned wrong, small and overpriced. Cocktails alright.

    Stories on High is all about the scenic view and not the food, which is underwhelming at best. The good news is that you are able to order a variety of plates because the serving sizes are appropriately sized. The service was absolutely amazing. The establishment should be commended for the professionalism of the wait staff. Unfortunately, as stated above, the food lacked flavor and was overall very disappointing. This is just one opinion, so I encourage you to try the restaurant for yourself!

    The service was OUTSTANDING, we were seated right away even though we were a little early, the dining area and the kitchen were both super clean and neat, the open space is so nice too, and we got a great view by the windows. The food came so fast but was still so fresh and clearly prepared right as we ordered it! Their spicy tuna and spinach artichoke wontons are so so so good! I’m not a huge fan of their drinks but they’re apparently changing drink (and possibly food) menus anyway!

    Jeff, our server was a gem, per usual. We were a little perplexed about the entrance, downstairs, being locked? The manager handled the mishap. It’s always a good vibe here.

    Great place for drinks, but the food isn’t that great (it is good, but very expensive). The view is truly awesome.
