The food is always good, but the strawberry chiffon cake is AHH-mazing!!!!! There is no doubt why it was featured in a magazine.

Started with a delicious Vermont salad. The stuffed pork chop was huge, very tender and wrapped in bacon. I had enough left over for another meal. Dana, the waitress, was excellent. One of the best dining experiences that I have had in a long time.

The food was great, the service wasn't. We got there at 4:25 for a 4:30 reservation and we were standing waiting to be seated for 15 minutes. Countless employees walked by us with no concern. The restaurant wasn't busy on Sunday (3/31/19) but we waiting for what seemed like forever for the hostess to notice we were standing right by the door. They then seated us at a table in the middle of the restaurant and we asked for a seat on the perimeter. Then hostess told us she might be able to accommodate that request and walked away for another 10 minutes. The whole experience left a whole lot to be desired.

The food was great my wife had the Lobster club and I had the J Morgan's Pub Burger. The quality of food was excellent and the burger was cooked perfectly. The ingredients seemed high quality and they did not cut corners when it came to quality and presentation. We will definitely go back for the food but I wish the service was better.

We enjoyed our meal very much however the lines were very long with only one person doing eggs and waffles. My boyfriend ordered a bloody marry thinking that would be in place of the mimosa that is included only to get the bill and see there was a 9.00 charge. You would think maybe an upcharge from the mimosa but to charge the full 9.00 is a bit odd.

Friendly staff, but not very attentive. After looking at the menu I was very excited, but the meal I received was a huge disappointment. Salmon was tough, over cooked. Veggies were mushy. Calamari however, fantastic. It is a hotel restaurant.....expect that kind of quality, but double the price.

I sat in table area near the bar on a Friday evening., very very loud. I ordered a filet mignon w peppercorn sauce, The meat was tasteless and served w the wrong sauce first, when corrected I wasn’t sure of the second sauce as it seemed more like a gravy that lacked any pepper taste. The server was courteous and very attentive during the visit.

The extensive menu offers lots of options. They should build a noise barrier between the main dining room and the bar since the noise level is a bit high. The wait for our salads and bread was quite long. Salads were mediocre but main dishes were good.

We usually have a great experience but not the last time. Our server brought out our main course and she hadn't even served us our salads yet. We both ordered the lazy man lobster and both dishes were way over cooked and we actually had to ask to have our water glasses refilled. We were also seated next to a very noisy table of 6.

The noise level is so loud you have to yell at your dinner mates. Conversation is difficult. Some tables are worse than others. I also find the table height is very high in relation to the chair level. If you look around many patrons are eating at a table that is chest height. The food is delicious but having to yell across the table at my dinner mates isn’t pleasant and I really feel the tables should be lowered to fit the height of most of the seats.

The food as a rule can't be beat! My order was perfect, some of the others were a little disappointed with theirs. Steak bites were deep fried on garlic mashed potatoes, didn't know they bleu cheese on them and wasn't thrilled with "chicken fried steak". A bad personal choice perhaps.

The food was fantastic, as was the variety of the brunch buffet. From previous experience, I know that food off the menu is also fabulous. I also love the decor. I was, however, disappointed that having reserved a table weeks in advance, we were given one of the crappiest tables, at the end of the bar, so high traffic area. Despite staff walking by constantly, it took forever for my husband to get refills on his coffee.

This is our second time coming here and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is lovely and the staff are very welcoming. The only problem that I had was that my potatoes were massively over salted but other than that the food was delightful. Would definitely come back next time we’re in the area!

I am completing this review honestly, but I do not want a refund or coupon. I ordered the Billionaire's Cake because I thought it looked interesting and satisfying. Sad to say, but it was one of worst dinners I have had at the Plaza. I could hardly see any lobster, just small specks, two tiny shrimps and the crab meat mixed with a dry tasteless mix that comprised most of the plate. I should have complained to the Waitress, but we were their for a birthday event, and I didn't want to ruin the mood.
