Fresh and amazing food. The small bites/shared plates were actually larger and we had food left over.

Love this place, the food, the service but the noise level of the music was quite loud my last visit and made it very hard to converse with those at our table and even for the waiter to hear us place our orders.

Almost impossible to get server to get refills for cocktails. Salmon was overdone, reminded me of the texture of canned tuna. Bar staff is wonderful!!

Truly phenomenal experience! Upon checking in, we were greeted with respect and professionalism. Although it was Valentines day and it was busy, we didn’t wait that long. Our server was awesome and very hospitable! We had the Valentines day 4-course special- it was delicious. Although we waited for our main course, they served us more champagne while waiting. There was live music- violinist playing romantic music. Our server was so nice, he took pictures of us and gave my wife a rose as well for the occasion. We were also given a free parking voucher as we left the restaurant. We love ASADOR! We’ll be back next time definitely! Thank you for the wonderful experience!

it was a very good restaurant at the Renaissance Hotel. We were running late getting on on our drive there but they were able to nicely accommodate us with a later reservation and this was on Valentines Day!
The food was enjoyable and not overly priced. I received a rose and a chocolate cookie at the end of the meal for VDay--and that was extra special!!

The only downside was the violinist was NOT good and it brought the evening down just a little. The manager needs to rethink the type of music and how loud and/or annoying a violin can be. to some ears.

We reserved our table so there was no wait... defiantly recommend if there during a market. Food is always great but with a full house... service gets a little strained--But that was expected and accepted.
It's our every market food stop for the last 10 years.

The wait staff was exceptional. The food was very good and prepared to order. The meal arrived piping hot. They even spent the time to figure out the name of a drink (that was not on the drink menu) and made it for my wife. We really enjoyed our time in the restaurant. I would have given 5 stars all around but they bought into the fad of playing loud music during dinner to make it seem more festive. It wasn't even that loud, it was just louder than I like (but I'm old).

The restaurant was a bit "off" this night. I had been there before and highly recommended it to my colleagues for this dinner. The meals were good but not outstanding. Maurice, our server, did a great job to make our experience a better one. I was turned off by the host in his inability to handle the fact that the Open Table app had many openings for the evening and when we arrived three minutes late, he was not willing to seat us. It took quite some time for the host to get the manager. I was not willing to give up and finally the host retrieved the manager. The manager listened to my concerns in that the app had tables available not only for the time we had selected but also times fifteen minutes later (when the host said we would have to wait 45 minutes for a table). I told the manager that I felt that we should be seated. The manager understood and found us a table.

It was absolutely amazing. The food was outstanding, as well as the service! We had the seafood Texas cioppino (best I’ve ever had) and the pork belly Mac-n-cheese (addicting). This will definitely be a new “regular” for us!!! We’re staying at The Renaissance, and this was just an amazing plus.

service was extremely slow and restaurant was not too crowded. house salad was just lettuce, nothing else for $7. Could have just opened a baby lettuce mix and put it on the plate. Medium steak was between raw and med raw. would never go back. guac and chips only good thing.

We were treated like kings. The waiter was quick and attentive. Very knowledgeable about the dishes and how they were prepped. Gave detailed descriptions and explanations of the dishes, where the came from and what type they were. All are farm to table both vegetables and meats and fish. Beef is from local farmers as well.
The Salads , many varieties are hydroponic and mealt in your mouth, totillia soup was unique rich and best I've had and I thought I had long ago had the best, the Salmon on a bed of pureed carrots and couscous, which the combination of those three flavors will make your mouth salivate for more and will delight your taste buds. Crochets are like no other ice ever tasted. We also had many special treats as party of our dining experience as the chef was trying new taste, twist and creating new dishes and putting spins on ours and used us to taste his creations. Down to an entire dessert tray of his latest marvels. Which all more than fit the bill. Speaking of the BILL it was surprisingly reasonable and even on the low end. About $30 each and that included wine. To recap, I eat out a lot and this had to be by far the perfect meal. Each and every dish were the best independently and when combined they became the perfect symphony far ones palette. Highly recommend the restaurant for every reason, as they checked every box that one might want in a dining experience.

When we initially arrived the dining room was empty; a bit surprising we though. However, we were very pleased with our waiter, her service, and the food. Everything was excellent! We were even given a complimentary appetizer and desert because they knew we were celebrating our anniversary. We recommend and will definitely return!

Phenomenal. Words can't aptly describe how wonderful this restaurant is. It is mostly farm to table. Whereas farm to table usually means simple dishes prepared beautifully, this restaurant has complex dishes served beautifully. I'm a big foodie and can be rather critical. The meal was flawless. As a starter I had the hydroponic salad. I took the first bite and stopped. Everyone at the table looked at e wondering if something was wrong. "You have to taste the lettuce". I proceeded to share some. The look of joy on everyone's face said it all. The lettuce was the best lettuce I've had in my life. I never thought such a common ingredient could deliver a punch of complex flavor. I'm not talking about the salad dressing, I'm talking about the leaf itself. Where they source it, I have no idea. But if this restaurant can deliver a gourmet piece of lettuce our expectations were elevated for the rest of the meal. Tortilla soup? Brilliant. Rib tips: succulent. Beef burger: inspired. Brussels sprouts: heavenly. Macaroni and cheese: unlike any other because it was done with fresh cheese so it was sensually creamy. But the dish that simply blew us all away was the salmon on couscous & carrot puree. Picture this: the carrot puree is chilled and is at the base, the couscous sits on it and its wonderfully warm, and the salmon was served pipping hot. In one bite you didn't get just the three wonderful flavors and textures but three varying temperatures making the experience of the bite unlike anything else I've ever had and the sensation extraordinary. Genius. Absolutely genius. For dessert the three of us shared a cheesecake. The cheesecake was not the traditional style, it was like the rest of the meal: groundbreaking. The food is so rich, complex, and satisfying that it was nearly impossible to eat the entire portions served. Ambiance is tops too, and though large, each table still felt private. Excellent service with a very knowledgeable staff! And GREAT cocktails!

The food here is amazing. We always get the charcuterie plate and a main. Roasted cauliflower and Brussels sprouts are must try sides. Get Demian if you can; he is a level 2 sommelier and his service is fantastic.

I was excited to try something different for Thanksgiving. The flavor of the food was top notch! I’ve always watched cooking shows wondering how the food they taste can be that good. I experienced it today!
I know that sounds silly, but I’ve never had a reason to say, “you have the perfect amount of sweet, savory and the heat.” I had the pleasure of really experiencing that!
