OpenTable Diner (Seattle)
3.0  Dined on November 26, 2015

Thanksgiving dinner was not what I expected. Service was good, but the food was only average. What had once been a very good buffet was now a fixed menu. The problem wasn't so much with the menu as it was with the to-do food and the "renovation" they just completed that had us sitting in the middle of the lobby (literally). Definitely not an experience that I would want to repeat. Sometimes things change over time for the better - this was a downhill disaster.

I was looking forward to having a tasteful and enjoyable holiday dinner out on Thanksgiving.
We had a good idea of what the choices were on the menu as we had checked it out ahead of time on the web. I had selected the scallops with risotto and mixed veggies. What came to me was 4 overcooked scallops that were like rubber, risotto that was runny and very salty, and a few non descript vegetables drowning on the edges of the runny risotto. I sent this plate back to the kitchen and was offered the Turkey dinner which I accepted. The quality of the sides were very disappointing, to me they had no flavor and were not well presented. I requested hot green tea to go with the main entre and what I was served was a small amount of hot water that could not diffuse the tea bag. Then there was dessert. The buffet had no plates available, and the selection by 2pm was fairly well picked over.
Having been this restaurant before on 2 previous occasions for the Thanksgiving dinner, I found it was very good but nothing exciting.

We had been there before for Thanksgiving some 3 or 4 years ago. They had a much better setup then. This time, it was a clear down-scaling. It is clear they are not getting any traction as a restaurant and there were less than 10% of the business of the Thanksgiving guests they had a few years ago. This time, they had us in the main atrium room and there were only a few guests, probably folks staying at the hotel.

Soup was not that great. Prime Rib was served cold and was disappointing. Bread was not refreshed. Menu was very limited but they were one of the few that had chicken on the menu which some family members only eat. The Chicken Marsala dish was ok. Desert buffet was ok and the main attraction. The kid's Mac and Cheese and Cheesburger were great. Mostly, the place was not inspiring or festive in any way. Just a hotel breakfast place. I wish they had their breakfast buffet which is better than most things on the menu.

We waited 45 minutes for our entrée and the server thought we had already eaten it.
Food was expensive but good. Other servers were very good.
