    Made the opentable reservation but ended up not in the restaurant but at a table outside the lobby and hotels main elevators. A good area to have a after work drink but not a nice meal. They had to kick some poor unexspecting patrons from the tables to convert to a dinner table, was that awkward . Food was average expected a little more when paying $300 for a dinner for four. other choices in the area that have the same quality and selection for less.

    Food - good, but not memorable. Service - competent. Appeared to be an abundance of staff on duty. Because we were seated near the kitchen entryway it seemed like a non-stop parade of staff back and forth by our table. Atmosphere - a hotel (albeit a nice one), so the fact that it was not an overly inviting ambiance wasn't surprising. Not bad for a hotel restaurant, but would not seek it out again for anything other than a business lunch or as an easy option if we were staying at the hotel.

    We dined here on Sunday night and it was an outstanding experience. Fantastic service, perfect ambiance on the river with the sun going down. The food tasted amazing. We had an extremely pleasant waitress. It was a perfect 2 hours of pleasure. Unfortunately, I became very ill later that evening almost certainly from something I ate. After a day of bed-rest and extreme unpleasantness in the bathroom I am finally on my feet again. My wife was fine and suffered no ill effects from the food. I highly recommend this venue for drinks but you may want to think twice before you sample the amazing tasting food.

    Dined on 7/25/2014
    We made reservations to dine before going to the Buble concert, so it was supposed to be a splurge while being all dressed up to eat here. However, what a disappointment! We had reservations, but had to wait for our table even though the room wasn't full. Our table was the smallest in a tiny corner and we had another table not a foot away dining as well... It was not private at all. Our waiter was terribly slow, couldn't make recommendations, never brought us dinner rolls, and had absolutely no personality. We asked the lady that brought our entrees to bring us bread, she did but dumped half of it in my lap, so we only had a few pieces of blah white bread to enjoy. I will say, dinner was very tasteful, but TINY portions... Expensive meal.

    I have dined at Six One Six several times and am never disappointed. The menu is creative yet approachable. Most often my experiences are of a business nature, but this latest was with our teenage children. We all found items on the menu that we liked. So much so that we shared bites with each other. In other words, all four plates had wonderful food and we wanted to share. I would recommend to business people and families with teenagers. The wine list is sufficiently extensive to find a nice selection across varied price points.

    I had not eaten at this restaurant for dinner; Met a friend for a business dinner and the food was unique and very good. I had the pork belly appetizer which is so tender it litterally evaporates in your mouth; then the pheasant breast which had great flavor and tender inside and crispy outside. Wine list was excellent and the Service was excellent while not intrusive - Just right!

    Six One Six NEVER disappoints for the Food - we were there again for the breakfast and enjoyed the tasteful and gourmet style breakfast spread - salmon, gourmet omelettes, waffles made to order, frittata, delicious pastries, lots of fresh berries and fruit. Waitress was a gem - she inquired about the gifts we had brought and when she found out we were celebrating our daughter's high school graduation, she brought a very special dessert with "Congratulations" written in chocolate on the plate!! She arranged for a tour of the concierge level when she found out that our mother-in-law had never been there - excellent! For future, would request a seat with a view (as we sat in the back area for the first time) and the violin was too loud.

    Dined on 5/11/2014
    We made reservations for five for Mother's Day Brunch at Six One Six. Maybe we had unrealistic expectations, thinking this brunch would be similar to Charley's Crab and others we have been to, but we were mistaken. When we arrived, there were not many people in the restaurant, but they still sat us outside the restaurant, in the Mixology Bar area. Right away, we felt like we were outcasts. Essentially, we were sitting in the lobby of the hotel. The selection of food to choose from seemed more like a continental breakfast, instead of a Mother's Day Brunch buffet. I would not recommend Six One Six for brunch.

    We ended up here because we couldn't get into Ruth's Chris for dinner as there were no open reservations for that evening. We were staying at the JW Marriott for the weekend so this restaurant was conveniently located. Overall the dinner was fine albeit somewhat overpriced for the experience. We had eaten at Ruth's Chris for our anniversary the previous year when we stayed at the Amway so this is what I'm basing my comparison on. For our soup we had the seafood chowder which was excellent. We both ordered the filet for dinner. Our steak was cooked to perfection but was not aged as long as I would have expected for such a high end dining experience. I love that this restaurant used all locally procured foods for their menu.
