    This is actually not a bad place food-wise; but as far as the service goes, this place is inconsistent with its service. One night you might come in and have someone stay on top of your service and the next you'll have someone disappear on you for large chunks of time. We experienced the latter even though the restaurant wasn't busy. Another thing to note is that the menu is very limited. I get that it's a hotel restaurant, but having a new special per week to choose from might be a nice change of pace.

    Not sure if I was there on a slow night but it seemed like the bartenders were also the ones taking food orders. There was no one at the entrance to greet or seat us. There were a lot of television, perhaps too many. But the food was fantastic.

    Meeting friends here for dinner was a good choice as it was centrally located and parking in the hotel garage was very reasonable. Close to theaters makes it good for before or after a show. Ultra modern atmosphere a bit cool rather than cozy but a cheerful waiter haloed warm it up. The service was a bit slow however due to a major event in the ballroom, which probably backed up the kitchen. Very good filet mignon although menu selections were limited.

    We have dined at the Hyatt times over the years, with changing menus and decor. This time was pleasntly different. We were seated immediately upon arrival, although the restaurant appeared busier than usual; our greeter was very gracious. Our server quickly proffered menus and told us the evening's specials, The menu appeared limited, but that was deceptive--there are choices for just about about any taste. The prices were reasonable, although the wine was a little pricey, though delicious. The food arrived promptly, and at the proper temperature, and was brought by a very ebullient server. The food was very good. FYI, the 'small plates" aren't that small---my wife had 2 of them, and had trouble finishing her meal. Great staff.

    The service and food was exceptional. The dishes were creative and had tremendous flavor. I had the Seafood Bisque which was perfect with alot of meat and the base was exquisite. The Sea Bass dish is not you usual. It was in what they called a salsa but it was so much more. My fiancé had a fresh salad and the Filet Mignon in a Knob Creek sauce that was amazing. We suggest the carrot cake for dessert which we split because they do give you a lot of food. The waitress was phenomenonal and very attentive. The only drawback is parking and walking or an 18$ valet charge. If your in the area for a night out then that is negligible. One note is they are going thriugh a menu change so ask for the lunch menu also which I ordered from.

    This is one of my favorite places to go for a drink to unwind or to get a simply great tasting meal. My brunch experience was awesome. The buffet has wonderful options including juice and coffe for only $19. That can't be beat. Omelettes made to order, fruit pancakes, potatoes, fruits, cheese, danish, cereal, bagels...you name it! I chose the eggs Benedict off the a la carte menu and it was perfectly prepared. Lattes are splendid as well. Will always come back here...love love love!!!!

    Was there on a Friday night and we were a party of three. Ordered a chicken panini but got the soprasetta panini. It was good but not what I ordered and since it took a long time to arrive I didn't complain. Ordered a beer before food arrived and after finishing my meal told the waitress to forget about it. Good food but very disorganized

    It is a hotel tavern. I usually have very low expactations for hotel dining (pricey, not good). The dish I've ordered (red snapper) was excelently done and not very expensive - $24. I may eat there again on my next trip.

    Visited Glass Woods as a midpoint between two groups getting together for dinner. My daughter and I had salads and some very good New England Clam chowder. Service was a bit slow, even with the restaurant not crowded. Prices were average for the area. I would consider returning if I was in the area - there are lots of other choices.

    When things are clicking, this place is very, very good. However, on any given night, it's been inconsistent. For instance, sometimes there is a hostess to greet you and other times you pretty much have to flag down a server to get a table. Some days you get a bread basket and some days you don't. And some nights the food quality just isn't there either, which is a sham because the menu is rather promising. Last comment--they have a nice sized party room, but on the night we dined there, they left the door open and the people in the party room were LOUD. not sure why that door couldn't have been closed to mute the sound, as the people in there were shrieking. If this place can become consistent, I'd be happy to increase my rating.

    We booked this on a whim because it was a 1000 point reservation and were won over by the quality and care in which everyday favorites were prepared. The Chicken Tortilla Soup is a meal in itself and the Lobster Pot Pie was out of this world, with the most delicious crust laden with fresh whole thyme sprigs. Everything was fresh and fabulous. Very quiet atmosphere probably due to us being there on a holiday weekend but it won't deter us from returning.

    I chose the Glass Woods by recommendation of Opentable and was not disappointed. It was a nice spot to meet with friends and have a quiet evening over a delicious dinner reasonably priced without the stress of having to leave after taking the last bite of dinner. The food was very good for a hotel lobby restaurant. Our waitress was exceptional friendly, helpful and made the evening even more enjoyable.

    Our party of 3 tried Glass Woods during restaurant week. We felt the $25 menu was very reasonable for the meal we had. The corn soup shooter and crab cake were both fresh tasting and delicious, however we would have loved a larger portion as they were the best thing on the menu. One of us had the chicken entree, which was a bit on the salty side but otherwise tasty, and the other 2 chose the flat iron steak with wine sauce which was a disappointment - the meat was bland and the sauce didn't help. The blueberry cobbler was the better dessert, as the red velvet mashed potato cake was too sweet. Overall, we enjoyed most of our dinner, however if we dined here again we definitely would not choose the steak.

    We went for Restaurant Week. The appetizers were great, entrees decent, dessert was way too sweet. It was a nice value for everything we got, but the best part of the meal was really the drinks. Cocktails are well-made and strong. Nice atmosphere at the bar but unmistakably a hotel restaurant in the dining section; cheap-looking booths and things like that. Open-air atmosphere is OK, but makes it impossible to forget that you are in the lobby of the Hyatt.

    We were a party of four and had 6:30 reservations for a Saturday night. We were the only ones there until after 8, at which point only one other couple arrived. The food was very good and reasonably priced, the service very accommodating. However, I'm always a bit leery when a restaurant has such little patronage. Perhaps it's because the restaurant is small and tucked back in the hotel lobby, but whatever the reason, I prefer a livelier atmosphere. That said, in other regards it was more than adequate.

    The ambiance at Glasswood is very contemporary& inviting & would be a great place to get together with friends for a small group or a lg party. The food tasted fresh & looked appealing. The service was ok, took along time to get our order even though it was only two other tables open at the time (total of 6 people). I was there on Father's day in the afternoon, I would like to return & see what it is like at night.
