    The ambiance was beautiful. The waitress was super, and described the dinners very well. The food was great, and the pricing was very reasonable.

    Extremely underwhelming. Brought my family here for Mother’s Day brunch and received no indication that we’d be dining in the ballroom. Felt like we were on an old cruise ship. Food was average at best, service was fine, but atmosphere was awful. I felt embarrassed to end up seated where we were after telling my family we’d be going to Swan Terrace, which was so highly regarded for Mother’s Day brunch. Had I known it was first come, first serve for the main restaurant, I would not have bothered to make a reservation at all.

    Fundamentally, my wife and I love the Swan Terrace. We were married and had our reception there. We have been back several times. At this stage, the special events are a train wreck. The food is fine and the majority of it is easy enough to avoid making any issues. Service is another story. It’s an assembly line at best and the wait staff can’t be bothered to care. They’re getting $12 or so in tip automatically per person. Why work hard at all? We got one drink each and zero visits from them after we sat down with plates. It took 20 minutes to get a to-go water for my wife on the way out. We were sat and it took 10-15 minutes before we even met our server and had drink orders.

    Mother’s Day brunch was very good. Place was crowded and tables were packed a bit tight, such that it was hard to move between tables even by the servers. Food was really good, just wish there had been more breakfast items in buffet like waffles, pancakes, breakfast sausage. Food was more geared towards lunch. But fabulous nonetheless! Would do it again.

    Nice ambiance & atmosphere. Food was good. My salmon was a bit small for the price but good. Our waitresses were pleasant although when they brought us our bread basket, they didn’t give us any appetizer plates. Overall a nice experience and would go back.

    Choices in food should appeal to all taste buds. The food was good but not great. Only wine and beer available in the restaurant, no liquor.
