We went to the breakfast with Santa. The ambiance was great and Santa was perfect. Staff was very kind and friendly. The problem was the food. This was a relatively pricey buffet breakfast and the choices were minimal. Additionally, the food was cold. It was really a disappointment when I look at the money we spent.

We love the Santa breakfast so much but I really wish they still had the omelet bar like every year in the past. For the price of the breakfast you should be able to order an omelet.

Our Prelude dinner at the Nonantum was wonderful. The resort's Christmas decorations and ambience was all I had hoped for. My beet salad and pierogi selections were scrumptious. Husband's short rib dinner was surprisingly delicious and melted in your mouth.
Thank you, Nonantum, for a memorable dining experience.

We chanced to eat here on a Thursday evening, where they serve a “Date Night Menu”. At $49 for Two, which included a glass of Fizz each, shared starters and dessert and two main courses. Good size portions, wide choice and excellent quality. Who could wish for more?

95 Ocean was great. Lobster and halibut was outstanding although a bit pricey. Menu was quite limited though so I’d suggest checking it out via their website to make sure it meets your dining needs.

We had halibut and it was outstanding. Loved the combination of risotto, asparagus, and lobster that dressed it up. Also enjoyed the pumpkin cheesecake with the "fan" of pumpkin seed brittle. Our waiter, Kevin, was a gem.

Had the whole lobster and scallops...both very good. The garlic risotto was excellent and the clam chowder was ok for something different but wouldn't order again. Had the peach (baked?) with brittle for dessert and while good, the portion was very small. Not worth what we paid.

We’ve had several excellent meals here this season. Tonight the service was spotty- long waits, incorrectly prepared steak - and several of the dishes not as good as previously experienced. (Wish they had specials, we’ve tried almost everything on the limited menu.) Perhaps it’s end-of-summer exhaustion. But we brought guests from out of town and it was disappointing.

We had a nice quiet table on the porch which was perfect. There was a wedding inside and we were able to enjoy their music. The food was very good with clearly marked GF options. Our waiter was knowledgeable and prompt. The food was very good however the arugula salad had no arugula! It was really a mixed greens salad. The roasted peach dessert was tasty except the peach really wasnt ripe/cooked enough -pretty hard. We ate everything, so the waiter couldn't really say much when we told him.
4 of 5 entrees were very good - 2 halibut, 1 cod, 1 scallops entrees were very good, the other cod was dry and not great.

Beautiful views from all tables. Quiet, peaceful atmosphere. Our waiter Kevin was absolutely exceptional. He went above and beyond to take care of us and even brought my lobster back to the kitchen to crack and open it for me and clean it up when I cracked it and all the green stuff came out. The wait time for food was a little long but not terrible, and we really enjoyed all of the fish (large portions too!)

The food and the presentation was wonderful. $12.00 for three small pierogies was a bit much. The hotel had a wedding in the room next to the restaurant. This made for a noisy occasion. It was not conducive to a quiet meal. The service was slow. We noticed other diners were not having the same issue. We dine in the area and this was our first time at 95 Ocean. It may be our last as well.

Meal was excellent although portions were actually to big. I had grilled halibut and portion must have been close to a pound. My wife had the salmon and couldn't finish her's either. Both meals were done perfectly one of the best seafood dishes we both have had in quite a while.

Arrived about 15 minutes early but were seated right away, nice table looking out at the water. Service was excellent though our waitress was a little hard to understand do to her accent.

Will go back again when in the area.

This used to be a great place with a wonderful, full menu. Now they have gotten rid of the blueberry ribs, the great salads and the menu is skimpy. The chicken was bland and the polenta cake gritty. They need the old chef and menu back.

We were there for a rare getaway without children so we’re looking forward to a quiet “nicer” dinner. Didn’t happen. Clearly a great place for families since it has an affordable kids buffet but would not recommend it if you want to chill. The tables are close and we had loud small children on both sides of us. Again, I have kids too and it would be fine if I wasn’t expecting a quiet date night. The food was very average and the service was also slow. I think more of a symptom of our particular waitress and not everyone.

I was very disappointed by our dining experience. From the photos I expected a high end restaurant located within a well known hotel. However, other then one dining room the rest of the restaurant felt like a side note in a hotel hallway or part of a closed off banquet room. Another room was set up for a breakfast buffet and there was a pizza buffet set up next to the host stand. There were even guests walking through with luggage just feet away as though they were going to their room. It was very loud and filled up with families and small kids (which is not a problem but again not in line with the high end profile displayed through branding). Our server was friendly and responsive. The food was was under whelming and more on par with banquet food.

This restaurant had some nice reviews which was why we went. After being seated our server pored some Luke warm water. I asked for lemons which took 10 minutes to deliver. Then another 10 minutes to get our drink order, we felt very ignored! Finally we made our dinner order, my husband asked that his cod have no added salt. When I tasted his it was Very salty! ( and I like salt) so not so good on that point. The Menu was very small in choices and our server did not seem to know much about the choices we had. My halibut was delicious, but considering the whole experience I would NOT recommend going here. Go down the street to Mabel’s much better choice!
