    The brunch was overpriced and the food was bland and not hot. We had an early reservation around 10 AM, so we were quite surprised at the slow staff and disappointing food selection.

  • Too Expensive

    The price for brunch was $50.00 which was somewhat pricey. There were a few excellent items on the brunch especially the jumbo shrimp and the smoked salmon. The ham was perfectly cooked too. On the negative side the leg of lamb was stringy and barely edible. I am not a fair judge of desserts as I don't eat them. The eggs Benidect were pathetic. I ordered two mimosas (expensive at $10.00) which were delicious. We had the oldest waiter working ( who doubled as the bartender). He did a yeoman's job handling at least five tables and all the drinks for the entire brunch.

    We came for Easter Brunch with two grandchildren, 7 & 5 y/o. There were eight of us. The attention that our group received from the staff despite the fact that this is a buffett affair was outstanding, friendly and much appreciated. The food was well prepared, there was variety and it was just right for a family gathering. It would not be a meal for gourmet food enthusiasts, with many new unfamiliar dishes, but that is not what we came for and the children certainly would have been uhappy. They thank you for the waffles and great deserts. We have celebrated birthdays at the Westin and will most probably come again as long as we live in this area.

    A gift certificate brought us to the restaurant for a dinner with friends. We enjoyed the evening and the food and service were quite good. We thought the prices especially for drinks were a bit too high and would probably only return to the restaurant if we obtained another gift certificate.

    This hotel restaurant charges a lot of money for very mediocre to bad food. we ordered the fried calamari and it was so greasy, rubbery and not crunchy we sent it back. Everything we ordered was way overpriced and mediocre at best. You would think an 18 dollar cheeseburger would be the best you've ever tasted.My partner ordered the chicken($23) and it was bland, He said he has had better for 10 dollars at the 99 restaurants...There is no ambiance in this place. I think it was an open space near the lobby that they decided to make into a restaurant. Boring and noisy because it is attached to the lobby.

    We were very disappointed in the brunch at the Westin. The Westin did not have a bartender on duty so no Bloody Mary or Mimosa to enjoy with our brunch so they should not advertise as a brunch just as breakfast. Our service was very slow and the whole experience was very disappointing. We would not return.

    This restaurant has a lot of potential but it has to really try harder. The food was inconsistent but adequate. Some of it was very good and some was just OK. My salmon was under-seasoned an had no crust, yet our appetizers were very good, as were the drinks. This was a Sunday night and they were severely understaffed. Our waitress disappeared for long stretches and half the time we were served (and our drink orders were taken) by the hostess (who was excellent, good attitude and very attentive given what she was covering for)...

    We made a reservation here for 715 on a Saturday night for our anniversary, no need...the place was absolutely dead. We knew going into it that it was overpriced but we had a 20% off coupon for being a Starwood preferred guest so we thought "why not?" We sat down and it took our server about 5 minutes to even notice us. Bad start. The Caesar salad was delicious, but the rest of the food was pretty mediocre. I got the steak frites, medium rare, and it came out closer to medium well, my boyfriend got the green tea lacquered salmon, no hint of green tea. We didn't get a dessert, mainly because our server, Sarah, was awful and had absolutely no personality. Just all around a pretty bad experience.

    It's a restaurant in a hotel, and most of the customers looked like they were on a business trip other than us. It was nice and quiet. We ordered Beefsteak tomato and fresh mozzarella with arugula to start, and it was well dressed. Our main course were Steak Frites, and they were well seasoned, juicy and tender. The fries were pretty good, too. Overall the food were good, and service was courteous.

    Average hotel weekday breakfast buffet - not a Sunday brunch. Cold scrambled eggs and lackluster side with a real piano player do not make this a Sunday brunch. Yes they had a good omelet cook and a friendly staff but not what it used to be.

    Would not go back again. My boyfriend are always interested in trying new places, and we're open to trying hotel restaurants. For restaurant week in March this year, 2013, we decided to stay in Waltham. There were only 3 options in Waltham and we've tried the other two, why not try Seventy@Third. Sounded cool before we realized it was a hotel restaurant. The service was extremely slow, and there were a max of 5 tables with patrons. The food was ok, nothing to write home about. The ambiance and view was very nice, we were freezing at the table we wer seated at. Overall, good experience to remind us we don't like hotel restaurants.

    In my Open Table reservation, I had requested a table with a view that was also in a quiet area, because I was bringing a friend to the restaurant for the first time and wanted to be able to converse and to impress her. The staff came through with flying colors. Our table was off to the side, and my friend's chair faced the lovely view across the reservoir, right by the window. We had a really great time catching up and an elegant environment. Thanks!

    We had a reservation for 7 pm on a Saturday night--usually a very busk time. We were one of two tables in this very large restaurant--deathly quiet except for a group apparently celebrating a bar mitzvah in the nearby bar. Pity--menu selection small but food very good, service attentive, good view from the windows and patio (rare in Waltham!); drinks, including beer, wildly overpriced. If you go here, order a drink somewhere else before you go!

    We chose a table outside, beautiful view of sunset. Our waitress wasn't very knowledgealbe but polite. I ordered salmon with shiitake mushrooms and it was on a dry side. My husband had aged sirloin steak and it was prepeared right to order but lacked seasoning. So we had a good time , great view- you can see lake from there but food was just ok.

    We had dinner on Saturday night with almost no one in the restaurant. Since this is a business hotel, that is expected on a weekend. The food was good to very good but a little expensive for the quality. Although the room is set up for a good view of the area, in the evening the reflection of the interior lights prevent that. During the day it would be much better Service was good.

Fortunately we arrived at 12:45 and were able to get a plate of breakfast brunch for $25.00 per. Staff was clueless on the reseervation and offered no alternative for dining after brunch.

    This was my first time at this restaurant and I love it. I had their steak and was pleasantly surprised that it was seasoned- so many places don't season their steak which is shame because with a little seasoning steak is so much better. Wait staff was super nice and very around the way friendly

    After two tries, we're done. Service was horrible. It wasn't the servers' fault, but an interminable wait for food from the kitchen, both times! Many others walked out, be we stuck it out because at least our servers were kind and apologetic. I'm usually willing to overlook long waits, especially if the house takes care of us (which they did on our first occasion), but each time we waited over an hour from being seated to getting our entrees. Twice. Sorry, we won't be back.

    We went because of a Groupon. The food was quite a bit better than expected, but the good news stops there. There was ZERO atmosphere. The lights were way too bright for a Saturday night. We were seated by the breakfast buffet setup; I was looking in the direction of tiny boxes of breakfast cereal. Because it was a slow night, staff was putting out little jars of jelly on the other tables. Meantime, a few tables away, a little girl in her underwear and no shoes was running around. (A stark reminder that we were in a hotel lobby. To top it off, they're charging Boston prices: $16.50 burger, $31 schrod. Bad call. We won't be back.

Menu was interesting and my burger was tasty. Food all around was good, but nothing spectacular which did not match the cost. At the end of the day don't visit a hotel for dinner if you don't have to.
