Caliterra Bar & Grille reviews from OpenTable diners
  • They have a new more limited
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 4/28/2011
    They have a new more limited menu with less sandwiches. The food was good, the portions were small and the prices were reasonable. Feels like a hotel restaurant, I assume it is often empty at Lunch time as there are many tables.

    They have extended their Restaurant Week menu so that any entree on the lunch menu is $19 and that includes choice of soup or salad and choice of dessert. I had the crudite, lobster roll, and key lime pie for $19, all in a beautiful restaurant with excellent food and great service.

    Four people in my group went to Caliterra for a business luncheon. The set lunch (3-course)was excellent, and the price was very reasonable. Two of the guests had sea bass. Cooked just right. The others had caesar salads and they were equally good. Dessert was also excellent, especially the strawberry shortcake -- moist and delicious.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 3/18/2011
    I was extremely unpleased. The food was over cooked, the spices were not well blended (each bite tasted completely different than the last). Went for restaurant week to see how the wait staff treated people. Our waiter was rude and continued to make comments such as, "I don't need to ask how your food is. You are here for restaurant week and got lucky that we ran out of the other stuff so now you can try the good stuff." The steak that he was talking about had been ordered rare and was a medium well. Not worth going to no matter how good the price.

    Food was average. Service was like getting from a local cafe. Maybe we ate after the 1pm rush hours, we could not find our waiter any wait staff to ask a question near 2pm.After we tried so many restaurants during the restaurant week, this is the first one we felt we would not go back anymore.

    This place was just under new management. The were in the middle of changinf over their wine list so the first 2 choices we made were unavailable. Also, several items on the menu were unavailable. The waiter was very good and genuinly felt bad that items were not available. If I was staying in the Hilton i may go there again, but other than that I won't go out of my way to eat there again.

    KoreanderVIP
    Dined on 12/13/2010
    Caliterra is a great spot for lunch. The menu offers great variety for lunch and the food is consistently delicious. The one drawback is that service is often too slow. While I don't like being rushed out of a restaurant, it's hard to leave there in less than a hour and a half - even after telling the waiter that you're in somewhat of a hurry.

Maybe I'm being to hard on it with 2 stars, but the whole thing was just....bland. I guess with so many great restaurants in the area, I'd be hesitant to return.

    YRUL84TVIP
    Dined on 10/28/2010
    First time for lunch here, and despite disappointments, I'd give it a second try. The dining room is very attractive. Because there are so many hard surfaces it can get a little noisy, but not terrible. Food is inventive; the flavors pronounced. Pumpkin sage ravioli really tasted of sage (a good thing). Apple mix atop swordfish way too sweet. Tart-sweet balance would have been more successful. Wines by the glass poor re: quality / selection / price: Cavit? Really? Aim a higher and charge a bit more. On the other hand, desserts unremarkable and about $2 overpriced for what they are. The only espresso and cappuccino available were DECAF. Really? (Again.) I'd say Caliterra is a work in progress. We shall see!

    It wasn't what I had expected, walking in the front door with tons of construction going on. It was quiet, and we were placed in the back corner which was nice, but not so great when it took 15 minutes for our waiter to come with a wine list. It also seemed every time we were looking for him, we couldn't find him for another 15 minutes. It wasn't the greatest restaurant I've been too, probably won't go back.

    If it wasn't restaurant week, I wouldn't be dining at Caliterra. The prices are extremely high for the location. That said, the lunch menu they offer for restaurant week is well worth it - they actually have one of the best selections in town. I agree with most of the reviews that the service is a little slow (however the waitress was very friendly). My only complaint was that the dessert did not live up to the bar set by the entree - I think the key lime pie was probably the worst I've ever had.

    Unable to check into our hotel early, we came here for breakfast & were pleasantly surprised. They did offer the usual hotel-buffet breakfast-but we ordered from the menu. Blueberry pancakes were perfection! Fluffy yet firm, with identifiable berries instead of the weird fake blue blobs most places offer. Ham was thin and flavorful,not oversalty and fatted as elsewhere, custom omelettes very filling. With offerings such as brie and asparagus as ingredient choices, we were happy campers. Staff were all extremely professional and helpful.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 5/22/2010
    Hotel restaurants sometimes get a bad rap, but Caliterra is the type of place that can give hotel restaurants a good name. We were there on a Saturday night, and this "business-oriented" hotel was relatively uncrowded, so the restaurant was quiet. The bar picked up a bit as the night wore on, but never became overcrowded or uncomfortable. The servers were friendly and attentive. The food was very good. If you're staying at the Hilton, there's no real need to go outside the hotel for a good evening of food and comfort. If you're looking for a place to enjoy a drink, some good food, and a reasonably quiet and sophisticated place, you'll enjoy Caliterra.

    Service was top-notch. The restaurant itself had very few diners, so perhaps the waiter was able to better focus on us, but his service was great. We didn't feel rushed at all but also felt we didn't wait long whenever we wanted to place an order, make a special request or ask for the check. The food was also very good and worth coming back for.
