38 years ago we stayed at Hotel Bethlehem for our wedding night. Last night we celebrated our anniversary in the restaurant there. It was comparable to our meal at Gordon Ramsey's restaurant! Every detail was taken care of. I had requested a bottle of champagne for the table and when we arrived we were told it was compliments of the... More

If I was rating this experience solely on the food, I would give it only a four. The meal was very good, but the service and overall ambiance of the hotel were fantastic. The hotel is stunning and the entertainment was wonderful! We grabbed a drink at the bar since we arrived a few minutes before our reservation. The singer... More

Good food, wait staff has a hike to get food from kitchen to table. Went during holidays so might have been a bit crowded, or understaffed, but food was good.

I would've given this place a 5 stars because the food was incredible, the was wine delicious, the setting festive and very classy. However, they forgot to include the scrumptious parsnip puree on my husband's braised short ribs dish - not mine, and the waitress seemed noticeably aggravated that we had come in to eat that evening and required her...

Rowena, our server, could have not have been more pleasant and attentive. I asked to change my entree. She satisfied my request with a smile and pleasant attitude. She continued to be sweet and friendly throughout out the night, I thought she should be recognized for her exemplry service.
