2 hour wait for the re-opening of the cliff..

The staff was attentive and nice. I got the tomato penne and added chicken.

Brought my friends from the east coast here. The view was nothing but great. The tropical margarita was refreshing and worth the entire wait.

Great atmosphere.  Little cold so bring a jacket.  Seems like many of the people where locals drinking wine like this is the place to come.  Check in on Yelp to get in line for the dinner reservations.  
Food was mediocre.  Not the best but had a nice selection.
