The Ambiance, food, and service was tremendous. We were able to have a very personal and private experience and would definitely recommend this place!

My experience at theGreatroom
I was pleasantly surprised to find a warm welcome along with my food in front of me within reasonable timing. The wait time was just right and long enough for me to order a drink from the bar first. The burger I had was incredible and I can't wait to come back. One of the most important things is my server was there when I needed him and didn't overly drop by to question me every 5 seconds. They gave me just the space I wanted with excellent service. I couldn't help but write a review about how pleased I was with my dinner that night. Thank you. :)

I had a pleasure of dining at theGREATROOM for dinner the other night. It was hands down one of the best dining experiences I ever had! The food was just DELICIOUS, and the service was EXCELLENT! I usually refrain dining alone at the restaurants, but I had no problem dining alone at theGREATROOM. The restaurant has very open feel with lots of corner tables for me to have a little more privacy at the same time. TVs are located everywhere so no matter where you sit, you will have something to watch :) The restaurant seems great for the group too! From the appetizer to dessert, everything was just perfect. If you are in Fremont / East Bay / Bay Area / etc, I highly recommend theGREATROOM!

Memorable from start to finish
We dined at theGREATROOM the evening their new menu debuted. I had scallops and my husband had the filet mignon. The plates were works of art and our food was delicious and cooked perfectly. The cauliflower gratin that came with the filet was particularly outstanding. For dessert we shared the chocolate pot de crème which was amazing. Our waiter was well trained on the menu - a requirement of an upscale restaurant. The decor is lovely with warm colors and comfortable seating. Since this is a "business hotel" on weekdays, the restaurant is very quiet on weekends so it is perfect for a nice, unrushed dinner. We will definitely return to theGREATROOM and will not hesitate to recommend it.

Our experience may not be
Our experience may not be standard, as we ate at 6 pm on a weeknight. The staff was very attentive, but we had few other customers to compete with us. The food was excellent, though, and as good as anything we have eaten in the Fremont area.

Took my fiance Cynthia here for her birthday.
The food was fantastic, service was great. It's great to have discovered somewhere else in Fremont that has really good food.
The restaurant is in the Marriot, but the food is much better than typical hotel food. As a plus, they brought us champagne as a gift for the special occasion We will definitely be going back.

Always good food and service
Our server Danny was awesome and so was the rest of the staff. I always feel that theGREATROOM goes beyond regular service. I'd like to keep coming back here. Plus, the cooking is always amazing. The cooks are extremely talented. I can't wait to go back!

One Wonderful Evening
theGREATROOM is a place we love to take our friends and family to . The space itself is beautiful, and remodeled
The staff is always welcoming and caring. The hostess Judith was so kind to pull up our reservation and she sat us to our table that was prepared for our arrival. We were fortunate to have a table away from everyone, but still close to the bar - and we were able to have a quiet conversation, thanks to great acoustical design!
The food is sustainable, thoughtfully prepared - and delicious. Lots of original drinks on the bar menu as well - clearly, there is a lot of attention being paid to the quality and originality of their offerings.
We look forward to visiting again!

We were looking for a place to eat while driving on the 880. We found the Greatroom. I have to say we were very pleased with the choice. We arrive to a mezze platter from the chef. The hummus is the best I've had. The chef even gave me the recipe. The ahi tuna tostada was great as well. The Mary's chicken was tasty. I don't know what they do but it was moist and very flavorful. We overheard other guest saying the same thing. The Seabass was excellent it had peas and fava beans. Fresh tasting and colorful. Their crispy dulce de leche is a must. My friends are already planing our next visit to the Greatroom. The chef mentioned the menu will be changing for the fall. We can't wait to see what he comes up with next.

I had dinner here with a special friend. She had some specific needs as far as her food goes. I wasn't expecting the chef to come out but he did. He starting by explaining what he could do for her. She was blown away and agreed to let him prepare a few dishes. He made a scallop dish that was amazing I believe that's how she described it. I had a filet with a cauliflower gratin. I don't like cauliflower and it was very good. Service was attentive as well. The chef came back to check on us and we expressed our delight. I believe that this chef has a bright future. We will definitely return.

I am new to opentable and I decided to try the Greatroom in Fremont. I have to say the food was great. We started with the heirloom tomato salad and the charcuterie platter. I have never had a truffle salami before it was very tasty.My hubby had the filet mignon and I had the scallop dish. They were excellent and very well prepare. The waiter I believe his name was Dago(hope I got that right) was very attentive and personable but not over bearing. The desserts were great too. I read about the dulce de leche dessert on here and boy did it live up to the hype. I again never had something like this. Just simply put fantastic. There was also the molten chocolate cake. It was great because it was not overly sweet. We will return soon.

A rare find indeed
My wife and I were looking forward to our anniversary so we stayed at the Marriott Hotel for a stay-cation of sorts. We love to eat out and were suprised that we had not been here sooner since we live so close. The staff acknowledged our special day and went above and beyond the call of service. Friendly and attentive without being overbearing or fake. The food was divine. Simply put the Crispy Dulce De Leche was one of the greatest desserts i have ever had the pleasure of partaking. We will be back without a doubt. A big thank you for making our night something to remember.

I went to the great room because we had a business function in the Marriott Fremont hotel and I was very surprised that the food was very very good. The restaurant had multiple TVs that do not bother me much because the food and service were awesome. I had the Mary's chicken and my boss had the special they had in the restaurant which was swordfish. He said he never had a swordfish that was good and this one was spectacular. It was moist juicy and a great choice. The chef and the sous chef came out to the table and introduce themselves I was glad they did because they made me look really good in front of my boss. Kudos to Chef Paul and Chef Steven thank you guys and I will definitely return with more clients.

Being a serial diner I joined opentable to expand my dining in the area. I was talking with a colleague and they mentioned they had a good meal at the marriott. I thought they were talking about Arcadia in San Jose. Nope they said in Fremont. I said where? So we took the trip up to Fremont. I was impressed. The good was excellent and the service was good too. I had the a lamb dish that the chef was featuring. It had a lamb sausage that I have never heard of. The lamb was prepared correctly and that sausage was terrific. I asked to speak to the chef and he came out. He took the time to explain everything and thanked us for choosing them for dinner. I think it's called a dulce de leche. It was very good. Well done Marriott your chef is great!

Outstanding food in Fremont
I found this restaurant on Open table looking for something new in the Fremont Area. What a fantastic surprise!! The food was amazing, Sea Bass and Salmon had impressive flavors. The opening dish of three different Hummus type dishes were excellent and the deserts of cheese cake and Pot au fau finished off the meal with great sweet tastes.
The captain, Brian took very good care of use and the rest of the staff were very attentive.
The one draw back is the eating area, it is in the lobby of the hotel with no separation between the eaters, bar, check-in desk, kids playing games.
I just returned from New Orleans where I eat at 5 star restaurants and this meal, in Fremont, was head and shoulders above them all.
