    Definitely not worth the cost. I will say, the pork was excellent. The kids pasta was not very good at all. And the cheesecake was quite good as well.

    The cauliflwower steak was instead half of raw hard cauliflwower head. Not good at all.

    The service started off good but then went downhill. Leaving empty plates and glasses on the table, the food took way too long and was just average and the ambience was lacking. I was sorry to be disappointed and will likely not be back for the price.

    Hostess and wait staff were not very friendly, and reluctant to accommodate a simple meal request such as different bread. Food took almost an hour after we ordered. There was a large conference at the hotel, but the restaurant was not full. Felt as though they were severely understaffed. Everyone seemed a little stress. Food was just average.

    The resort was having a conference, yet the restaurant was completely unprepared for the amount of people. We had a reservation and got seated right away. Then we were promptly forgotten. We waited over 25 minutes before anyone acknowledged us, and then over 40 minutes for a Cobb salad, cup of soup, and turkey club. I had to go looking for the waitstaff to find out what was going on. By the time we got our food it was time to be back in the exhibit hall. We had to leave someone behind to WAIT 15 minutes for the check. The bill was over $100.

    The beef skewer was so overcooked it was like jerky. The Sea Bass was so overcooked it was like shoe leather. The salads were delicious.

    Loved it! We went for their happy hour three-course special after getting a day pass from Resort Pass for the hotel. An incredible deal for three courses at $29, plus wine was around $8. Great food and nice atmosphere.
