    The name of the actual entree item escapes me at this time, however it was Chicken and Green Beans. The chicken was extremely dry and the green beans were cold. Some of the fruit was cut to close to the rind and was hard. Nevertheless, the eggs (especially) and the rest of the breakfast food did not disappoint. We will be back.

    We were pleased with the food and service. The seafood seemed fresh, and the staff did a great job ensuring that all items were available through the evening. The sushi bar was very good, and the staff there did a great explaining the selections. The crab legs are cold, and I prefer warm, but other than that, it was an enjoyable dinner.

    Drink order came out wrong. We were the only table in the restaurant the entire time, and this was at dinner! My filet was overcooked. For a $40 dish, this is inexcusable, especially since we were the only people in the dining room. Gratuity was automatically added for a party of two! The menu states that parties of eight or more get auto-gratted. Wish we would have tried any of the numerous options just a block away at the mall. Maybe their sandwiches are better. They seemed to be more affordable, but we were out for our Anniversary and wanted to splurge a little bit. Should have gone to Cooper's Hawk!

    We were in Columbus for vacation and have dined before at the restaurant in the Hilton at Easton. Friday night they have a Seafood Buffet with Sushi. To accommodate more customers, they moved the sushi tables out in the hallway. It was a little strange going out of the restaurant to get food. I also thought some of the big rolls were not done as well, as in years past. The wine we had was excellent, but took a while to get. The hot food selections and the deserts were both varied and very delicious.

    It is our first time there, took my mom for nsj smothers day dinner. Hear very good feedback about it, I was excited that I picked a good restaurant to celebrate for Mother's Day. Very upset, food was not upto the quality, service was just okay. Sushi was not fresh. All of us went home with upset stomach and went to the bathroom all night long. Will not recommend to friends and family.

    I am disappointed at this restaurant in this time. I will not go there again. I enjoyed Temaki sushi, Uni, Sweet Shrimp, Octopus and smoked salmon on 2011, 2012, 2013. But there are not Uni, Sweet Shrimp, Octopus and smoked salmon in this time. Plus, Chef told me that he could not make Temaki sushi because he did not have enough skill for making it. Plus, there were not scallop after 45 min. opened the restaurant. This restaurant is poor now.

    We have been here nearly a dozen times for the seafood and prime rib buffet over the past 5 years. The prime rib on this trip was better than it has ever been. The selection in sushi seems to be going downhill. They used to have more variety. My biggest complaint on this trip was at the pasta station. The woman in front of me got lobster. When I asked for it I was told she called ahead for it. If it's a buffet, everyone should have access to the same things. If not, then this should have been brought to this woman's table rather than having 10 people watch this one woman have her lobster cooked. Everything else was great. Overall service was great too.

    My daughter loves sushi and raw bar. My husband prefers beef. I like variety. Thank goodness the Friday night buffet has it all. A little on the pricey side at $36 per person, so we reserve this for special occasions. It was my daughter's birthday pick.

    Pros: Oysters, snow crabs, prime rib, sashimi The pasta/prime rib server with good smile Cons: Any other food; average or below The big black worker on the dining floor with no smile destroying the ambience The shaved head sushi cook eating food there with no smile destroying the ambience A server who doesn't know what kind of payment method is available It's worth to pay $36+tip if you expect only these food; oysters, snow crabs, prime rib, and some sashimi. If you care about hospitality, here is not a place to go.

    Scalloped potatoes were dry and not much taste. There were very few other side dishes available. Salad bar, rolls and desserts were the best thing on the buffet. I did not eat anything on the sushi bar so cannot comment on that. My husband and I expected a lot more for the price. I don't think we will return.

    The food is excellent and the restaurant is beautiful, but the staff is very unfriendly. There were a lot of people working there, but no one smiled. They seemed irritated if you would ask any questions. I observed the same situation then again on Sunday when I went back for brunch.

    Hilton Easton's Friday night all you can eat Sashimi/sushi bar alone would be worth the price, but there is also king crab legs, made to order seafood pasta, prime rib, fresh vegetables and an assortment of tarts, pies, cake for desert. The quality of this buffet is top shelf. As stated in the title, this is the best value in Columbus for sushi and probably as far as buffets go as well.

    Service was excellent; Gene is a gem to have as a waiter. The chicken caesar salad was very mediocre - I've had better in far less expensive restaurants. The grilled Atlantic salmon was OK, but again nothing to write home about given the watery sauce it came in. Overall the food was pretty mediocre and not worth the price.

    We went here for an anniversary dinner on a Monday night. Ours was the only occupied table in the restaurant the whole time we were there, so it was nice and quiet, but freezing cold. Since we were the only table, you would think that we would get excellent service, but this was not the case. The food was lower than average since none of the four of us could say ours was good. Two got the $24.99 3 course dinner and thought that they got what they paid for. The filet was OK but ruined by the bitter sauce poured on top so that there was no getting away from it. The other order was a Rubin that was less than an inch high, so mostly just bread.

    Friday night buffet which include fresh sushi, steamed crab, oysters, prime rib and much much more. The price, $36, was high but not too high considering the amount of options and the high quality of the food. The place was packed and our service was a little slow but the server was polite, and did a very nice job. This is a big, open and therefore noisy room. This is not the best place for a romantic dinner but the Hilton Easton has a nice bar to retire to after dinner which makes up for it. With 2 glasses of wine and coffee expect to pay $100+ for two people.

    How can you beat an all-you-can-eat buffet of the highest quality? Friendly service, kid-friendly, and great atmosphere. Food is wonderful! Sushi and pasta made in front of you, made to order. Great prime rib and crab legs. Price isn't cheap, but more affordable than a few specialty sushi rolls at nicer sushi restaurants. For the same price, you also get salad, pasta bar, great fish, crab legs, peel-and-eat shrimp, and friendly service. What can be better?

    Thanks to all of the Hilton staff for helping to make my husband's father's day extra special. It was a perfect beginning to a very special day. In addition to the day being Father's Day, it also marked the 10th anniversary of the first time we dined there. Brunch at the Hilton was a surprise gift to my husband on Father's Day, 2003. We have been faithful, loyal customers since that day. My husband and I estimate that over the course of the ten years, we probably have only missed about 5-6 months of Sundays not dining there. Can you tell we love it? Thanks to all the special people that make things so enjoying for us. Kim, Brent, Gail, Aster, Tiji, Moola, Omha, Steve, Aleyda, Naomi, Melissa and Teddy.

The staff always makes us feel so welcome and special. The food choices can be overwhelming because there are so many things to choose from it is well worth the price. We are stuffed every time we leave there. That meal lasts us all day. Thanks again to the fabulous staff.
