Beverages and cocktails on the roof during a pleasant blue sky Sept. evening! Service was excellent! Then we moved to the basement for supper. BAM! Everything was great! Everyone was happy with meals and drinks. The Hotel Donaldson did a splendid job of taking care of our business social and dinner. I would not hesitate one second to bring out business dinner back to the Hotel Donaldson! It was an excellent night for sure! Thank You!

The taste was good. Very light brunch crowd. For two with two breakfast items (eggs Benedict and eggs with hash) and two juices with tips was $40. Slightly pricy.

You must try the bison hanger steak with the grilled wedge salad. The Mexican spice on the perfectly medium rare bison is a divine pairing. Cosmopolitan vibe and a decent Montpulciano red tops it off.

Disclaimer- I am from New York.
I was attracted to the vibe at HoDo as they are called, and I looked forward to an interesting local dining experience as they describe in their marketing.
To be fair, I dined here twice for dinner and in part, I hope that my review is read by management as well as customers since I did not have the nerve to make any complaints be known at the time.
A BLT salad delivered a satisfying freshness with a fair amount of blue cheese and bacon. The frisée was tough and was hard to navigate however the overall salad was tasty. A side order of "charred" wings were barely charred and rather rubbery.
On the next evening the Bison burger was nicely grilled, almost medium rare with a good char flavor however the already petite beef was dwarfed by a large bready bun.
The bun was not fresh, not warmed, nor placed on a griddle or grill before serving. Inedible.
I was also disappointed at the barely existent slice of light pink tomato, 2 skimpy rings of red onion and a single piece of wilted lettuce.
It was served with potato chips. Ehhhh.
With 2 more days to go- I'll be in search for a better Bison Burger, for sure.
