Numerous choices for a meal and a huge dessert coffee or tea. I chose the filet which was cooked perfectly. And my husband had the fish. It was delicious! The freshly... More

Food was good! Service was prompt and courteous. Not fine dining... but better than bar food. Nice atmosphere and a discount if staying at the hotel.

We stopped for lunch and had 11 that needed served. Was a little slow and there was a bit of confusion. Food good, hot and the chicken parmigiana was good.

Came in around 1030am on Dec 27. There was no line at the door but we waited 5 minutes to be seated. Once seated, we had a girl serve us who was still learning(which is fine) but she took a while to grab our drinks. She clearly didnt know the menu because she had to follow along with us on... More

Loved the decor - living room furniture, Italian Renaissance murals, nice. Liked the upscale breakfast menu - five different kinds of eggs benedict, smoked salmon omelettes, espresso, good. But - six televisions all tuned to sports channels? And non-stop country music? C’mon. p.s. - the food was okay.

My daughter and I ate at this restaurant. The food was great, the waiters were very friendly and helpful. My daughter had the fruit with Waffles plate, it was amazing and she finished it all.

We went for lunch ..I got a wrap...mine was ok but definitely not worth the high price..my wife got the burger ...with a piece of bacon that was similar to a burnt stick..she asked for new bacon..they gave her new bacon free of charge..but the burger still sucked..service kinda lacked too.

We came here for a different dinner, being a part of a hotel, I'm sure they get a lot of hotel guests. We were seated right away, they have a huge alcohol drink list, the food menu is rather large, they do have all day breakfast if you want it! We both got something with salmon in it and we... More
