    Abe was great as was everyone else who helped us. They made the experience memorable. Breakfast was a little pricey $130 for three however the food was very good. Will see you again soon.

    A simple dinner with my son. We split a fantastic bacon cheese burger. It’s was perfectly cut in half with our own bowl of frings (2 onion rings atop fries). It was paired with this awesome dipping sauce - yummy

    We booked for outside dining, however the restaurant doesn’t offer outside dining. The servers tried to accommodate us by getting us a table by the window so we still got a view of the water. The food was great, our waiter was awesome, and the ambiance was perfect! The place was clean, and the food was constantly being refilled. Highly recommend!

    Was in town as a bride to be- to visit the wedding expo! Had such a wonderful brunch with my girl friends before we went to the expo! Lots of delicious breakfast items we enjoyed with the buffet. We left happy & full of energy for the planned wedding planning of the day! Thank you for such an amazing experience! Definitely going back with my fiancé for a date!

    I ate breakfast here twice during our stay. They have a breakfast buffet. I also ate dinner. I enjoyed the food both at the buffet and for dinner. I ordered a fettuccine dish for dinner. We also came in for dessert one evening and found the cheesecake unique and tasty. All the servers made me feel as if I was the only table they were caring for. Friendly, informed, and attentive especially with coffee and water refills. Very nice people. I also liked the decor of the dining room and how open and comfortable it was. It was fun to sit by the windows a few times to enjoy the pool view and sunset. Each meal was expensive for our lifestyle, but we expected that since it was a spectacular hotel, so that is the reality. We made the most of it and enjoyed our meals.

    we had chicken jiordi it was excellent. service was great. atmosphere lively which was ok for us but if your looking for a very quiet dinner might not be the place. It might have been because there was a convention in town.

    Convenient when staying at the hotel. But the food was only decent (pasta, chicken sandwich and cheese burger). In a pinch it will do. For good food venture into Gas Lamp.

    Good atmosphere decor. But for meaty omelette ($14), do NOT choose "vegetable" omelette. When you say so, the server may NOT say that they will charge $1 per vegetable choice, for "make your own" omelette. They did NOT say that the "make your own" omelette would be easy $21 - it would be ethical to say the price difference. Also, when they offer "coffee" at the very start, that means you will see $5 for "coffee." Some rundown restaurants may rip off customers like this, but a 4/5 star upscale hotel restaurant does not need to do this kind of dirty tricks to make more money. I can't believe I still tipped them.
