3rd year in a row a large group of family has gone and spent Mother's Day brunch there. The prices are awesome for a brunch buffet. Everywhere else you choose a menu item and prices start at $28 not including your drinks. Mimosas are unlimited for this Mother's Day brunch. We'll see you next Mother's Day 2019.

Almost empty upon arrival. Slow service from the get go, though not in a hurry — it was still a bit painful getting an employee to even establish eye contact.
Recommend the buffet and getting your cocktail at the bar if in a hurry or trying to make an event. Looked good and priced nicely.
What we ordered was good and for a hotel, price was as expected.

The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. This restaurant is in the lobby of the Hilton Americas, so great for people watching. We had the cod with risotto and it was delicious and had amazing flavors. The wine list was unimpressive and overpriced would be my only negative about this experience.

Although we enjoyed the restaurant & food---I was angry at my reservation time. When I made the reservation, I was told we could only have a 5:30 or 8:30 time. Upon arrival, the restaurant was totally empty! We certainly could have eaten earlier!!! It was too bad our evening had to be so late, when it could have been much earlier!!!! If you can't get a better handle on times available---maybe you shouldn't be taking reservations for this property! Next time we will make every effort to contact the restaurant direct. This was certainly unacceptable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you 1600 Grille! We were staying at Hilton during the ice storm and 1600 stayed open while most other downtown places were closed. They only served a buffet, but there were many great choices, drinks, and desserts. It beat going out in the subfreezing weather and ice. Thank you!

The food was tasty and the service attentive; however, somewhat slow. This was a business meeting for drinks and appetizers prior to attending a game. I made reservations for 6pm; however, when I arrived (shortly after 6) the table (for 7) had not been arranged; therefore, I had to wait outside of the restaurant with my client for approximately 10 minutes. I would have assumed that with a reservation the table seating would have already been set up. Overall, the staff was friendly; however, I think that the table should have been prepared ahead of time and not after I arrived, given my reservation. Other than that, I would certainly go there again.

Great service and food as always. This was not our first time here. We’ve spent at least a couple of Mother’s Days and Easters at this restaurant. The food is always plentiful and the service is always top-notch. Would recommend to anyone!

We just got back from the Thanksgiving Day bufffet. The food was absolutely unbelievable. It is nearly impossible to make any buffet food taste "homemade" but they did it. The turkey, cornbread stuffing, turkey gravy, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce were incredible!! The food was endless... from the traditional Thanksgiving fare to a huge breakfast bar, omelet bar, salads, HUGE peel and eat shrimp... It was amazing! The desserts were incredible too.

I went here for their Thanksgiving spread, and it was delicious. The inclusion of the Eggs Benedict station was great. I would suggest that in future Thanksgiving buffets, another green alongside the Brussel Sprouts be included-- I felt like some greenbeens almondene or asparagus would have made the meal feel more complete.
Beyond that, great place for the value for Thanksigiving-- I was even able to smuggle a slice of Turkey home for the dog.

This lobby restaurant is a great place to dine before going to Toyota Center. The food was absolutely delicious, so well prepared with freshest of ingredients. Our service was excellent. Unfortumately we had less than 1 hour to enjoy, but service was so prompt we had little time to wait.

It's ok if you are staying at the hotel and don't want to go out for food. It's nothing impressive at all, I don't see my self going again it's to many better options in the area, just depend how far you want to go or drive.

Ambiance was devine. The low lights and flickering candlelights on the table made it very cozy and peaceful. There was one child who screamed for a little while, but lucky for us the family left early. The food was good. I had a steak and though this was bragged about in other posts I thought it was ok and really overpriced. Sides are extra and for the two of us it was close to a hundred dollars. Save your money and go to Saltgrass.

I should have known better than to trust a hotel restaurant (unless I'm in Vegas), but the menu here was captivating. Needless to say, it was a very disappointing experience. There were moments of greatness tucked throughout our meal, but on the whole, this restaurant failed to deliver. Our experience was tainted upon being seated due to the horrible service from our server. She couldn't be bothered to spend time discussing the menu with us. Thankfully, a few of our questions prompted her to summon the chef. I expect high-end servers to be very knowledgable of their restaurant's menus.

The spinach artichoke dip and the tortilla soup deserve many compliments; both were classically delicious. The entrees and desserts, however, left much to be desired. The garganelli had only a scant showing of the Brussel sprouts and pork belly. It felt and tasted like an expensive bowl of (albeit well cooked) noodles. The ancho honey chicken was actually quite good, especially with the acidity of a grilled lime, but the real star of that dish was the Mexican street corn. I was very excited for dessert because they offered a gluten free Nutella torte. Unfortunately, it was bland and showed almost no taste of Nutella. We left knowing that we would never dine here again.

Went for breakfast with Santa on a Saturday. Buffet was good. Bacon was slightly greasy and undercooked but otherwise everything else was great. Good selection. Really enjoyed the omelet station. Service was great. Our waitress Katherine was very patient and sweet to our twin girls. Will definitely be back for the breakfast.

The wait staff and kitchen were not prepared for the business that the Barbra Streisand concert brought to the restaurant. After waiting for 20 minutes past our confirmed reservation, a nice guest invited us to sit with them in the bar as the line wrapped around the lobby. The server was so overwhelmed by the pace, management was having to take guests' orders and expedite the food. Guests on either side of us were saying that they had placed their orders 30 minutes earlier and they were still waiting. We opted for the pizza on the appetizer menu to make up for lost time waiting. The pizza was good but it was not a relaxing experience.

This restaurant is located very conveniently in the Hilton Hotel. It was an easy stop back and forth between our hotel and the convention center. Three of us opted to have the buffet. The food choices and variety were good, but all three of us experienced intestinal problems for the next 12 or so hours. The one person in our party that opted to just order soup and bread off the menu was fine.

I took my mom here for a nice Mother's Day brunch. Unfortunately, it was loud, the service was far from good and the food was just ok. While the shrimp and crab legs were fresh and delicious, the eggs Benedict station was terrible. The English muffins were so tough from sitting out since early in the morning that I could not cut through it with my knife. The Canadian bacon was similarly tough. I can imagine eating here again only if I were staying at the hotel. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant for special occasions.
