The restaurant had a special three course Xmas menu. I’m thinking of making this an annual tradition it was so delicious. The pumpkin ale bisque appetizer was unique and so tasty. Then two of us chose the breast of turkey slices, buttermilk mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy, and green beans, beautifully seasoned. And one friend had the prime rib entree perfectly cooked with mushrooms, polenta and Brussel sprouts. We took pictures; the dishes were so gorgeous. And each of us had the pumpkin and apple pie dessert with a dollop of cinnamon cream - again, just beautiful and delicious.

We stayed at the hotel and enjoyed the bar food, room service, and especially the breakfast buffet and Thanksgiving lunch. The servers, hosts and chefs were lovely people and made us feel at home, especially on a holiday away from family.

The restaurant menu has a lot of variety and delicious options. I was dining with my parents and we all have different eating styles/preferences. I was able to find a few different dishes I wanted to try and my parents were happy to have options, too.

I arrived promptly on time for my reservation and was greeted immediately. The restaurant is open in the lobby of the hotel, which has vast ceilings and noise was bouncing off the walls. There are no privacy walls for the restaurant so the lobby noise is shared with the restaurant. Open concept.

Our server was on top of it, which is always a great thing. My mom, who is an adamant Diet Coke drinker, did not see the bottom of her glass. My water was constantly filled. Food came out promptly and dishes were cleared quickly upon finishing our food.

The food was delicious and met expectations. Mom had the crab cake sandwich - which the slaw was not a favored addition in her opinion. My dad got the ribeye which was cooked perfectly medium well. And I got the crab Alfredo, which was good and filling. The apple pie a la mode was the dessert of choice to be split, and we were content. It’s a large slice so it was perfect for sharing. No complains about the food but also nothing to rave about.

Overall, I’d come back and try a new dish. I’m happy to know it’s a safe bet for my family and all of our preferences.

After a morning of exuberant t tours, we were looking for a family friendly lunch. Article One saved the day! We took an uber and we're surprised it was in the Hyatt Hotel but not disappointed. The server and chef were accommodating to our picky eaters. It's off the mall so not as crowded or noisy. It was just what we needed to refresh for the rest of our day.

My wife and I had the breakfast buffet and enjoyed it very much. The price is a little steep for a basic breakfast, but it's more than that. The buffet features an omelet station with several different options, a number of buffet meat and egg choices, plenty of fruits and cereal, and a number of other excellent options.

The service staff were friendly and efficient and we felt we could eat at a comfortable pace.

The place was vacant but extremely noisy being in an open lobby where kids and conference goers were coming and going...
The food took forever which was strange we were the only ones there... And though the waiters were pleasant they were disheveled. It was pretty ridiculous.

 (Raleigh)·Dined on February 5, 2016

I was visiting DC and had some Hyatt Rewards points to use up. Thought I would take my husband out for an early Valentines dinner, and chose American Grill. Points were confusing to use, but they did honor them. The food was delicious but probably a bit high if I were not using reward points. Service, impeccable. Ambiance, maybe for a work gathering or convention group but for a romantic dinner for two, pretty brightly lit and no music, soft romantic or otherwise. I thought even the Hyatt could have had a grand piano playing or p[perhaps a harp in the lobby near the restaurant, but nothing.

We have enjoyed holiday buffets at Article One a number of times, and made a reservation for Christmas Day, 2015. We arrived to discover that there was no buffet, it had been canceled. I must say that my immediate response was annoyance, but that soon faded when we were shown that there was a special menu for the day. To make a long story short, we were treated like royalty, with the chef taking our order personally. It was a great meal, especially the pumpkin soup with apple compote, and the opera torte for desert. Thank you Article One!
