The food was top notch, from the nice simple mixed greens salad to an amazing steak frites with poblano butter. Service started off fantastic and very timely then tapered off quite a bit at the end. Still positive and good when our server came to the table but he disappeared for 15-20 minutes at a time when we needed drink refills and other things. But overall this is a great restaurant with a nice beer/wine/cocktail list and we’ll executed food menu. Highly recommended.

The menu has changed; and not for the better. What used to be homemade yogurt has been replaced with store purchased yogurt. What used to be wonderful French toast and other such dishes seems to have been replaced with the mundane. And the fruit cup which used to be big and contain a variety of fruit was reminiscent of a fruit cup found at Dennys. We were so disappointed. We’d love to rerun, but not until the old menu is back!

We frequent this restaurant a lot and every time seems to get better and better. Worth the trip? I'm from California and we eat there 1-2 times a month, yep, it's that good. Our waiter Chrit is awesome too. We highly recommend Bambara

The wine list too was good as was dessert. It is a good location in a nice hotel. The only issue was the service was really really really SLOW! I realize this is a problem with staffing in many places but it is a real problem. One of our main dishes was a little bit cold too by the time it actually got there. Plan on spending several hours at dinner if you come here.

So what fell short? In order: It was a little bothersome to see the hotel's discounted parking rate for restaurant guests was $10. That's better than $28 for non-restaurant guests, but it adds $12 to the cost of dining here (including the valet tip). We waited over eight minutes for a menu after being seated--we would have loved to have used that time to select our orders. (This also means tables have eight more minutes between turnovers than needed). The server who brought our water while we were waiting did not acknowledge our existence, other than pouring water. No eye contact, no "hello," nada. Seemed odd. The brewed coffee I requested was only mildly warm. After adding a splash of creme it was lukewarm at best. I requested it be swapped it for a cup of coffee that was kept warm or freshly brewed and received some nice, hot coffee pretty promptly. Last, I always appreciate it when the wait staff checks in shortly after serving the food in case something is off and it's better to do that too often than not at all. However, the six times staff checked in after we had received our food was a little much. That meant 4-5 unnecessary interruptions to our conversation. Better to check in once or twice and then establish eye contact when rounding to allow us to indicate when we'd like assistance after that. Or approach the table, then wait 3-10 seconds for us to finish our sentence before interjecting. Overall a good experience. May try again with the family but not up to par for business meals.

The eggs Benedict was overcooked and barely warm. I think the chef had trouble timing these two options together. So I’ll LD definitely go back.

All were great, with the lamb being the best. For dessert we had the adult root beer float and the creme brulee. The root beer float was different and tasty, while the creme brulee was the best we've ever had. It's a fairly pricey place, but the food and service was worth it.
