Diner Reviews
  • "Pleasant surprise in Fremont, easy to get in on a Fri night. The service attentive and helpful. Too bad no separate dining room rather than the middle of the lobby. The numerous big screen TVs distract. Have a good selection of interesting dishes. We tried the sea bass, cooked perfectly and the fresh fava bean succotash was quite unique. The salad was memorable. However, the vegetarian pasta dish "featuring" Portabello mushrooms was very scant on the mushrooms-ho hum. The Crispy Dulce de Leche desert not up to par, the pastry was un-cooked on the inside, probably hastily cooked from frozen. It's a nice find in Fremont that has few decent restaurants of this type, but it could not compete if it were in other Bay Area locations."

  • "After seeing the revieews we decided to try out the Greatroom. For a hotel dining I must say this place should be a stand alone restuarant. The food was amazing! My husband was blown away by the filet and he is very hard to please. I had the Corvina Seabass. I never knew that I like succotash but they way it was prepared I am now a believer. Even the service was good. The hostess was especially helpful. We had a mezze platter that was awesome. I have never had that before. A trio of dips and naan bread just awesome. After enjoying a great dinner we were treated to a dessert from the Chef. I believe his name is Paul. He came to our table and presented us with a Torta de Nona. It was great! Thank you Chef Paul we will return!!"

  • "THIS WAS A FIRST TIME FOR THE 4 OF US DINERS FOR VALENTINES DAY TOGETHER AND AT THE RESTAURANT. I DISCOVERED THE GREATROOM ON OPEN TABLES WEBSITE. I READ REALLY GOOD REVIEWS ON IT AND THIS IS WHY IT WAS CHOSEN.THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT! RESERVATION WAS AT 830PM. WE WERE SEATED RIGHT AWAY AT 820PM. THE FOOD TOOK MORE THAN 40 MINUTES FROM THE TIME TO ORDER TO THE TABLE. WHEN FOOD ARRIVED, THE PLATES ARE HUGE BUT PORTION IS NOT EVEN A PORTION. WE ORDERED THE ROSEMARY CHICKEN THAT CAME WITH ASPARAGUS AND POLENTA CAKES, THE ASPARAGUS WAS NOT CLEANED RIGHT AND WE GOT 1 1/2 POLENTA CAKES EACH. I WISH I TOOK A PIC OF OUR DISHES TO SHOW WHAT WE HAD."

  • "This is located in the Marriott Hotel. Nothing spectacular but it is located near the freeway (off Fremont Blvd)."

  • "It was really a pathetic experience ever. It took 3.5 hrs for 2 ppl to dine with worst quality food. They don't have much on their menu and watever was there wasn't good at all. It spoiled our valentine day eve. Will never visit it again. It took around 25 mins to get water and menu card."

  • "After a long search, we've finally found a fine dinner spot close to home. The Greatroom offers fresh and creative dishes. I had the day scallops - there was a generous amount of scallops cooked perfectly. To compliment the excellent food, the service was the best we've experienced anywhere in the area, and even beyond. Typically you have to drive quite a distance to SF or other others for a fine dinner and good wine list. This makes for a long drive and a late night on a regular just to get quality food. Fremont finally has an upper end option. You do have to get beyond the idea that you will go to a hotel just for dinner, but the food was by far worth it."

  • "My guests and I had a great time at the Great Room....we were delighted with the luncheon menu. Each of us ordered a different item and all were delicious. The host staff was gracious and accommodating. We had a well-behaved 6 month old with us and she was good. Besides, it was so relaxing, we could really enjoy ourselves. Our waiter was delightful as well. We were not hurried or rushed at all. A very pleasant experience."

  • "This is the second time we have dined here and are so glad we have a high quality restaurant in Fremont that serves American cuisine. We both had dinner salads which were delicious and contained the freshest ingredients. The falafel appetizer and the dessert (key lime pie) were wonderful. We will definitely be returning."

  • "We enjoyed the Mezze platter and tuna appetizer which were delicious. The fish entrees were first class. However I ordered the steak/frites and the meat (skirt steak) was very fatty - almost inedible. The french fries were delicious however. Fremont does not have many good restaurants that serve American cuisine so this spot is welcome. However it is in the JW Marriott hotel and we were the only table occupied on a Saturday night - it felt a bit lonely."

  • "My girlfriends and I plan a yearly get together every December. I came across the GREATROOM on yelp and was curious after noticing the number of great comments. We look for a venues that have great food and wine so we thought we would give this a try. The servers were hospitable and we had the chance to chat with the Executive Chef who whipped up something different for our special occasion. The food was comparable to a fine dining establishment. We enjoyed every bit of our experience from the presentation of the perfectly crispy french fries to our sous vide skirt steak that was exploding with flavor. I can't believe such a gem is located in Fremont, not to mention a hotel restaurant. I will definitely recommend as well as return."

  • "Every entree we have tried in 2 visits is outstanding. Everything about it befits a top quality restaurant. The ambience is designed for a mainly business clientele, so it has gone the sports bar direction--TV screens on several walls, albeit with the sound off. A few elegant touches would be nice. They serve large banquets. We long for a venue that accommodates 40 to 60. Service is beyond courteous--so personable and thoughtful."

  • "I found this restaurant on Open table looking for something new in the Fremont Area. What a fantastic surprise!! The food was amazing, Sea Bass and Salmon had impressive flavors. The opening dish of three different Hummus type dishes were excellent and the deserts of cheese cake and Pot au fau finished off the meal with great sweet tastes. The captain, Brian took very good care of use and the rest of the staff were very attentive. The one draw back is the eating area, it is in the lobby of the hotel with no separation between the eaters, bar, check-in desk, kids playing games. I just returned from New Orleans where I eat at 5 star restaurants and this meal, in Fremont, was head and shoulders above them all. Go, enjoy!"

  • "Being a serial diner I joined opentable to expand my dining in the area. I was talking with a colleague and they mentioned they had a good meal at the marriott. I thought they were talking about Arcadia in San Jose. Nope they said in Fremont. I said where? So we took the trip up to Fremont. I was impressed. The good was excellent and the service was good too. I had the a lamb dish that the chef was featuring. It had a lamb sausage that I have never heard of. The lamb was prepared correctly and that sausage was terrific. I asked to speak to the chef and he came out. He took the time to explain everything and thanked us for choosing them for dinner. I think it's called a dulce de leche. It was very good. Well done Marriott your chef is great!"

  • "My wife and I were looking forward to our anniversary so we stayed at the Marriott Hotel for a stay-cation of sorts. We love to eat out and were suprised that we had not been here sooner since we live so close. The staff acknowledged our special day and went above and beyond the call of service. Friendly and attentive without being overbearing or fake. The food was divine. Simply put the Crispy Dulce De Leche was one of the greatest desserts i have ever had the pleasure of partaking. We will be back without a doubt. A big thank you for making our night something to remember."

  • "I went to the great room because we had a business function in the Marriott Fremont hotel and I was very surprised that the food was very very good. The restaurant had multiple TVs that do not bother me much because the food and service were awesome. I had the Mary's chicken and my boss had the special they had in the restaurant which was swordfish. He said he never had a swordfish that was good and this one was spectacular. It was moist juicy and a great choice. The chef and the sous chef came out to the table and introduce themselves I was glad they did because they made me look really good in front of my boss. Kudos to Chef Paul and Chef Steven thank you guys and I will definitely return with more clients."

  • "I am new to opentable and I decided to try the Greatroom in Fremont. I have to say the food was great. We started with the heirloom tomato salad and the charcuterie platter. I have never had a truffle salami before it was very tasty.My hubby had the filet mignon and I had the scallop dish. They were excellent and very well prepare. The waiter I believe his name was Dago(hope I got that right) was very attentive and personable but not over bearing. The desserts were great too. I read about the dulce de leche dessert on here and boy did it live up to the hype. I again never had something like this. Just simply put fantastic. There was also the molten chocolate cake. It was great because it was not overly sweet. We will return soon."
