We were staying at the Radisson with out of town guests. We have two young children and our friends had a newborn baby. We dined early. 6 pm. The restaurant was fairly empty at this time. The restaurant was very nice, good ambiance, not what I would consider a family place, but it was in the hotel we were staying. All of the service was very good, attentive and patient with the young children. They had a childrens menu too. The cheese and meat plate was nice as were our other appetizers. I had the gnocchi for my main dish and my husband had the scallops. I would say the main dishes were good, but not the best part of the meal.
Our food was very good. Our server was great. A great restaurant to have available when staying at the hotel.
Our family of four went for Christmas dinner. The only option for ordering was the 4-course special menu, and not the regular a la carte menu, as touted would also be available online. Our college-aged kids thought the meal was good, but would have preferred regular options. At $65 per head, the portions were truly tiny - especially the entrees. While good quality, there was just so little. We didn’t expect a gluttonous portion, but 4 bites of duck was hardly enough to call a meal.
The pancakes at the buffet station was hard as a rocket, apparently from being there too long.
Great restaurant for relaxing, reasonably priced dinner downtown. Friendly service, relaxing atmosphere. Great cheese-salami platter, grilled octopus. Nice wine selection.
This is the 4th year my friends and I have gathered at this venue to exchange Christmas presents. We make a meal out of several appetizers and wine. The service is great and they tolerate our unwrapping gifts. We will be back.
Pasta sauce was too salty. Pork chop not well seasoned, too fatty.
Food was excellent and the staff was very accommodating! My Team and I will definitely be coming back!
We enjoyed the experience overall...the restaurant was lovely and the service was superb. The mussels app was okay but quite fishy tasting and smelling, and we love mussels normally. I had the Cornish game hem and the hen was delicious but the squash side was not very tasty and the broccolini was pretty good but overly oily. My husband had the halibut and thought it was way overcooked. The panna cotta dessert was nummy...tough call but probably won’t go back. Sorry.
We came here prior to a dance performance at the Harris. It was a beautiful dining room with great city street views. Vibrant bar on level one. Great food with just The right amount of spices. Would highly recommend the octopus appetizer. The menu could have used a few additional entrées and vegetable options. Service was friendly and efficient. Will come back.
