Very good food, but be prepared to pay an arm and a leg for a hamburger and fries, or the breakfast buffet. The staff was friendly and helpful, but maybe stretched a little thin on the weekend we were there. We were in no hurry...More

Had the fish tacos for lunch one day. Had the Wagyu sliders and a Ceasar for dinner the next. Both dishes were fresh and very tasty. Presentation is nice and different for the tacos - kind of a build your own on one giant plate.

The service was outstanding and very fast. The restaurant is located inside the marriot hotel in san mateo. The food was tasty and the prices were normal for california.

The fish taco are very good and they come separated out in a build your own soft taco dish which is a nice presentation. The buffalo wings are pretty good as well. Full bar and decent wine menu. Service was good. Not a bad option...More

Usual hotel food served hot , only the slow service let the experience down . 30 mins waiting for a cheese steak sandwich with coleslaw was very long.
