Five Sixty's Dinner With a View

The scenery isn't worth the price of admission.

There are exceptional cocktails too, made with fresh fruits, infused syrups and the passion one would expect in a $16 drink. Pepino's Revenge pairs tequila and lime with the coolness of cucumber, while aromatic basil adds freshness to this worthy summer sipper. And the Samurai Sword, which makes use of a smoky Japanese malt whiskey, offers citrus and a subtle sweetness derived from the cautious use of honey. The drinks are reason enough to come here. Paired with a snack and the unparalleled view, they mark the best use of Five Sixty.

High-end cocktails and lobster shrimp rolls are among the few reasons to eat at Reunion Tower.

"The puck didn't live up to its pedigree" best line of the review. I think you hit the nail on the head, you rode up with a teenage couple celebrating a birthday which is still how people view the top of the reunion tower. It's where you went for mediocre food to feel "fancy" in a spinning restaurant. The waitstaff won't have to be up to par of the prices they charge due to the clientele.
