Maybe a bit short-handed that night, but had a reservation and waited almost 10 minutes for host to appear at the front. Seated in the back thankfully, so that we could still converse even with the singer-guitarist who was seated near the front door (quite...More

First time visiting this hotel. The food is amazing. Ambience is pretty good not a fine dining. If you are a foodie and want to try different things then this is the right place.

Excellent wine selections--our party all enjoyed the wine flights. Kudos on the crab cakes (a little spicy for one of the group) and excellent fish choices, hamachi with a side of kimchi in particular, but the salmon also had high marks. The Apple crisp is...More

Enjoyed our visit. Service was excellent. We ordered 4 different cheeses and 3 types of charcuterie to share. It was a very nice presentation but portions, especially the meats, were very small. The duck prosciutto portion was minuscule for $7. The cheese board came with...More
