    No atmosphere- ambiance was not great for Christmas buffet/dinner, dining room had numerous outside doors that continually were open, service people and guests generating heavy traffic throughout the eating area. Atmosphere not peaceful or conducive to socializing. Food was good, service was excellent.

    We had the opportunity to dine at the Hyatt SWB for our Thanksgiving dinner. We had 6 members in our party. The variety of the food was excellent. There were some unique choices along with the standards. The all important desserts were very good especially the pecan pie and bananas foster. The weather was great and the staff pleasant and attentive.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    I have been there before but it was prior to their remodeling a few years ago. I was disappointed in how casual the restaurant was. I guess I assumed it would be because of the prices. Pay for the ambiance, but that wasn't the case. We sat near the entrance and the open kitchen was to our left. During our breakfast we had the joy of listening to one of the cooks hammer out the potato fries. It was a continued hammering noise. Not at all enjoyable and it continually interrupted the conversation

    This place is good. I ordered the roasted chicken but it came out not cooked enough. The win and dark meat were less cooked than I preferred. The salad was good. The boys serving felt a like they were under a microscope.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 3/10/2012
    All was very good overall. It was a little noisy where we were seated, but we had my two grand children along, so that was okay. Our waittress seemed VERY new, and not very familiar with the menu offerings. We also had to ask for things we needed by flagging her down. The food was very good and the resort grounds were beautiful! We did the gondola rode after dinner, and although a bit pricey for our whole group, we felt it was with it. The grand kids loved it. The band playing was also really good!

    Loved sitting outside by the firepit. Food was good but menu was very limited. In fact, SWB's menu had been combined with the Hyatt's italian restaurant's menu and there were still not enough choices. If you're staying at the Hyatt it's worth eating there.

    Ate here after checking into the hotel. It was really busy. Overall food was really good and the drinks were great. Only complaint was that we were near the door to the patio so while they have heaters outside, we were getting pretty cold. But being from Oregon, we can deal with it. A little spendy, but you should expect that in a hotel restaurant at a resort of this caliber.

    OccasionalDiner
    Dined on 2/11/2012
    Wife was not impressed with her salad. It was uninspired with bland dressing. The cornbread was a disappointment. It was very sweet. She thought it would not be sweet and maybe a little spicy. The guacamole was terrific. My short ribs were very good, and my roasted corn on the cob was tasty. I shared it with her, and she agreed. So bottom line: my food was great; hers was marginal; the guacamole saved her experience. Would we go back? Probably not. We don't drink, so we probably wouldn't pay that much for guacamole just to be at the Hyatt.

  • Food, service and the resort
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/24/2011
    Food, service and the resort ambience were all 5-star. The only inconvenience was that our table for two was next to a large family table and the young mother would park her extra-large stroller right behind my dining companion's chair, which is not really the restaurant's fault. The other thing that made it a less-than-perfect experience was the drizzly weather which made it difficult to walk and enjoy the resort grounds But again that was not the resort's fault, which is why I gave an overall 5-star rating, as the things under their control were flawless.

    Went for Sunday Brunch. Best brunch I'd ever been to. Fantastic food. However, our waiter was the WORST! Saw him once at the beginning for coffee. Didn't see him again until I was almost done for another cup of coffee and then waited over 30 minutes to see him again just to get the check. After waiting, I walked up front to pay. That took another 15-20 minutes. It took just as long to pay the bill as it did to dine. It was one of the most frustrating restaurant experiences I've ever had.

Hollywood couldn't have scripted it better. A PERFECT evening, thank you so much, to the Hyatt and your staff.

    Dined on 8/12/2011
    Having dined here before with very good results, we went back with a large group. This time, 4 of the 7 meals were fair-to-good and the service frequently just stood around. The 100% lump crab cakes were 80% filler. The BBQ ribs were tasteless and the rock shrimp grits were equally bland. The food was so different from our first experience, we asked if the chef had changed. The manager offered other dishes or a free desert, but we just weren't interested. I would like to think our first experience was the better example. We will probably go back one more time to see. This is an expensive restaurant in a 1st class resort - we expected much better.
