My wife and I enjoyed excellent steaks. Our server was very friendly. I would suggest locking one of the outer doors that leads to the hotel, since that was used as an entrance by guests at one point and was rather noisy. Otherwise, excellent dining experience. I will definitely dine here again.

Perfect (late) breakfast
Out for the day with my wife, had an enjoyable late breakfast. The buffett, no matter what time you enter, is always fresh and ready for the take. Made to order omlettes and oatmeal are simple, yet perfect way to start the day. Open until 11:00am, sneaking in at around 10:00am after early breakfast crowd made for peaceful morning start. Always great service.

Steak and Wine!
We booked a reservation at Octagon for a romantic birthday dinner. Everything was excellent, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable, the steaks were cooked perfectly, and the wine was superb. The oysters and clams were awesome to start, and the crab cake was the best we've ever had. It was all lump crab, amazing! The seared tuna wasn't great, it was cold, and we expected it to be freshly seared, as in warm on the outside, not seared the day before and put in the fridge. That was the only negative, the porterhouse was amazing, and the filet with balsamic and garlic was out of this world! We chose the Columbia Crest Reserve Syrah, and at $62 was the best value/best overall wine we've ever had at a restaurant. Expensive, but worth it!

We have dined at Octagon many times, and never have we been disappointed. The rack of lamb was superb, and the crab cake appetizer was exceptional. If there was filler in that crab cake, it was impossible to find. Service was attentive without being overly so, we were not rushed and could enjoy finishing our wine after dinner without feeling like they needed to turn the table. A Saturday evening visit that once again, turned out to be a wonderful dining experience.

My husband and I stayed at the Mystic Marriott Hotel & Spa this past weekend. The staff was very inviting and they all seemed to enjoy what they do. My husband had the Filet Mignon and I had the Rack of Lamb. We both left satisfied. In the morning we had the Buffet for breakfast...it was delicious. The chef will make your omelet to order and they have everything you can think of for breakfast needs. highly recommend making a visit to Octagon for your dining experience.

Not a bad place for food
Never had a bad meal at Marriott. Bar could have a better, bigger TV for games.

The dinner we had was excellent. I ordered the salmon which was delicious, my husband had a steak which he raved about, his steak was cooked to perfection: medium rare. My husband had wished that he had gotten a side vegetable. This was something that we had overlooked, maybe the waiter could have reminded us. This was our first time there and we were unfamiliar with the menu. I had veggies that were included in the salmon meal, the steak came with a halved roasted garlic. The table was ready for us, it was nice to be able to reserve a table via the internet.

While staying in the hotel for a weekend get-away for our anniversary we decided to try the Octagon for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised with delicious, quality food. The lobster bisque was flavorful and creamy. The chopped
salad was okay but contained olives and feta which i enjoy. For entrees we had a light and flaky snapper and a delicious chicken dish with peaches which paired well. Dessert was a praline bowl with very fresh berries. So delicious. Would definitely dine there again.

Good food, a little pricey. Lots of noise from the bar in the dining area.

Another visit to the Mystic Marriott Hotel and Spa. Dined at the Octagon Sat and Sun evening. Never disappointed. They serve consistently good food. The Cowboy steak is always excellent. Great selection of appetizers and starters. Quite an extensive wine list. Lorraine was our server Sat nite and she was wonderful. She couldn't do enough for us, and made it a special evening. Beth was our server Sun evening and and was sweet as could be. Looking forward to our return!

Nice date night
My husband and I enjoyed a nice date night at Octagon. The ambience was calm and romantic, and the steaks were among the best we've ever had. Our only minor quibble was that we waited quite a while before we were brought anything to eat or drink. Overall though a very good meal and nice evening.

Always consistently great!
Eating here is a nice experience. It's always great service, great wine list and nice atmosphere. Food is excellent, but never perfect. If you're eating beef then it's better than the fish, but many times the fish is not cooked to perfection and can be a bit dry. You have to have the mushrooms no matter what you're having as they are a treat!

Great food and service except...
We loved your 2 choices for restaurant week and the service was great. We liked the general ambience, except please ditch the awful mural. I had to switch seats with my husband so as to not look at it.

Great anniversary spot
We celebrated our 1 yr anniversary at octagon. Nice up scale atmosphere, excellent food. The filet mignon was fantastic.

Very pleasant surprise
We were staying at the Mystic Marriott and this is the only restaurant (besides Starbucks), with nothing else close by. We were traveling with our two small children and felt badly taking them into such a nice place on a Saturday night at 6 PM - people were having romantic dinners and the nighttime ambiance was far different from the breakfast buffet we had been to hours earlier. That said, the staff was very accommodating and we had a great dinner. Kids' meals were excellent with lots of great options. I had an excellent chopped salad and perfectly cooked filet mignon. Even desserts were great - we weren't expecting much, especially given some of the reviews. Terrific drinks and great wine list.
