Granted we were there during a conference and at some peak times but they wouldn’t allow substitutions like turkey instead of corned beef on a Rueben. Prices reflect a captive audience. $25/b’fast buffet, $15/sandwich are typical but where else can you go.
I wouldn’t go out of my way to dine here with so many remarkable places within walking distance in the Gaslamp district.
Dinner with colleagues. Great service!
We had a beautiful table tucked away in the corner overlooking the water. In terms of the balance of food variety and food quality this was among the better restaurant brunches I’ve had. There was more variety than listed on the menu. I especially enjoyed the huevos rancheros, blueberry pancakes with lemon curd, and fresh blueberries and raspberries with lemon creme fraiche.
Anthony best server ever! And perfect wine pairing
Christmas Dinner buffet was excellent. I did however feel drinks were overpriced and under value.
We have booked this restaurant for Christmas (we arrive the same from Belgium !) time. There was no lights (too dark to see the menu !). Service was poor maybe due to this period ? Less people available. So in conclusion good but ...
Very nice. The prime rib was amazing!!!
My husband and I were really looking forward to dinner at Marina Kitchen. We even looked at the menu ahead of time and talked about all the delicious sounding entrees.
When we arrived, we were shown to a table and given the beverage menu. We ordered drinks and then asked for the dinner menu. The waitress told us they were only serving bar food that evening due to low reservations. It would have been courteous to let us know ahead of time. We booked the reservation via Open Table several days ahead of time. It would have been nice of the manager to offer a personal apology.
We left the restaurant, not wanting to eat bar food when expecting a special meal. We had to scramble to find another place to go at the last minute.
In conclusion, I'm unable to provide a rating for this restaurant. I would never recommend it to my friends and we definitely won't be going back.
Went for Thanksgiving dinner, place was packed. Food was great for a buffet. Not the usual spread but some more interesting offerings- truffle Mac n cheese, pumpkin risotto, burrata, celery root. Our server was attentive and helpful despite how crazy busy the place was.
Went for Thanksgiving. The food was quite good but the service was poor. It took forever for someone to take our drink order then rarely returned to check on us. I expected much better service at a Marriott. What was very disappointing was that 18% gratuity was automatically added to the check. I typically tip 18-20% for good service. On this occasion I would have tipped 15% but didn’t have a choice.
