I have eaten here on numerous occasions and the food has always been great. The pizzas are delicious and I particularly like the Portabello Fries with ginger soy dipping sauce. Lots of sports on the TVs and a great vibe in the evenings. Surprisingly good for a Hilton lobby.

Breakfast buffet with cook to order menu. Nice food, fair service. Staff could use more staff when large crowds around to facilitate better turn around of bills. Bar area next door was also available and similar service issue.

We ate a few times in the restaurant. It is always difficult for the staff when you deluge them with lots of ladies at the same time wanting to eat in a short period of time. I found the staff to be pleasant, accomodating and concerned that we were happy. Great job!!!

The food for a hotel restaurant was actually quite good, and wine cellar also has some nice wines. Would recommend if you did not want to venture out in the evening.

We were staying in this hotel, and got together with friends for happy hour, and then stayed around late waiting for friends to come back from an off-site event. Our server was great, and never made us feel like we'd overstayed our welcome. It's a hit pricey, but that's typical for hotel restaurants.

Great food and great staff, I were very tired in the evenings and just went down to the restaurant and did not have to many hopes on finding some great food but I got surprised

No Dislikes whatsoever. Had many, many rooms for a large Rose Parade Band and the service, food, accommodations were superb for a group staying in this hotel. Excellent pool, large in scale, many common areas for gathering. Easy access of motor coaches in and out. Will use again at our earliest opportunity.

Food was good at all times of the day. Turkey burger was fantastic! Flatbreads were creative but I wish I could have ordered a custom flatbread.

We went to the palms when we stayed at the Hilton in January 2013. We went there for Breakfast. There was a buffet that was 20.00 but we didn't like the look of it so we ordered from the menu. The food was ok but the menu was pricey as our plates were around 10 to 11 dollars a piece... More
