A large and boisterous restaurant, bubbling with the city activity. The hostess was not on cue the night we went, but the wait staff was excellent. Our food was very good.More

The hotel is beautiful and historical. The lunch was fine but not fabulous. The cocktails were crazy overpriced! I guess you are paying for the real estate here. $22 for a martini and $18 for a very large filling lunch. Service was good.More
