The coffee machine was out of water. Our server was so busy. When the two folks standing at the door saw me try to make it work, one remarked: "it's out of water - just find your server and tell them to fill it". Really, I thought: you're not busy at all and you're standing 15 feet from a faucet, do you think you could trouble yourself to fill it? That would simultaneously help their far more busy colleague, and it would also allow me to leave the restaurant and get back to work. That apparently was too much trouble or they felt it was beneath them (I'm polite so I did not say anything).

We came for lunch with a group of coworkers. We called ahead and they were able to accommodate our party without any issue, and we were sat immediately upon arrival. They were even gracious enough to add another chair when our group got some last minute additions. The lunch buffet was a great deal with a wide variety of fresh and high quality options, especially the dessert!

Excellent location for a business lunch with staff from the Cleveland Clinic. The lunch buffet is always delicious with a wide range of entrée options and fresh, delicious salads and deserts. Excellent wait staff as well contributes to a worry free dining experience.

Went here for during a weekend when family was in town for breakfast. Food was good but very overpriced. Service was some of the poorest I have ever had. Our family had flights to catch so we chose to eat here since they stayed at the hotel nearby. We sat for nearly 40 minutes after finishing our meal before the check ever came. No ones water, coffee, juice was refilled and everyone had empty glasses at the end of the meal. It was not even crowded that day. The waitress was not very friendly. Was very disappointed and embarrassed we chose this restaurant for our family. Then we got the check which for 6 people had already included a 20% tip (I always tip this anyways but on this occasion the service was so poor I would not have). The whole experience was terrible. Would strongly recommend against.

The wait staff was slower than usual on this particular visit. I would have appreciated my water glass being refilled during my meal but it was never offered. No one checked on us during our meal either; although we did select the lunch buffet.
This is unusual relative to the numerous times I have dined here for luch,

, did not wait at all for the table, food was great, server was wonderful! She managed ALL of our special requests without a hesitation, she then even brought 4 tiny little desserts to the table and said "Happy Friday! Compliments of me!" It was adorable and they were REALLY delicious! Thank you! Great experience!

I've dined at North Coast several times and always order the buffet lunch for convenience and to save time. The quality and variety of salad and entrée options is always very good to excellent. The serving staff is most often attentive with few exceptions. I appreciate the smaller sizes of desserts as a bite is usually all I want and I hate to waste food. Thank you!

I had the cobb salad which was ok. I ordered it because of the blue cheese, but the blue cheese was hard to find and very mild. The chicken was overcooked and dry. Lettuce was fresh, but I expected more for the price. If I ordered that on the hospital cafeteria, I would have said it wad a good salad.
My mom had the vegetable barley soup which had a few pieces of celery and some slivers of carrots. She was expecting more vegetables. Our server Alberto was very polite and accomodating.

The food was fresh and good. Especially for a buffet. Service was slow. All the staff would disappear for minutes. But they were all incredibly nice. We weren't in a hurry, so it wasn't a big deal. A couple people in our party customized their omelets and thought Marcus did a great job. When I need a brunch spot in University Circle, I will consider this again.

I came in with a group of coworkers for the lunch buffet during the week. The food was fresh and delicious. Everyone was impressed by the entrees as well as the dessert bar. Compliments to the chef!

The service however was terrible. We were never offered drinks other than water, we had to ask for our check 6 times before the server brought it to us. The dishes were cleared off the table quickly by the bussers.

Celebrated the end of summer research projects for two students in my group. The whole group enjoyed the variety and quality of the lunch buffet, with delicious choices for a vegetarian (me) and the carnivores in the group (with brisket, fish, etc.). Fresh pasta, the carving bar and the dessert selection were highlights. Friendly service, great value!

It's a shame when an Intercontinental hotel price gauges it's customers for badly prepared Sysco food. The menu was uninspiring and bland that tasted like it was microwaved. Save yourself time and money and go to a Waffle House. The food is the same anyway.

My husband and I had gone to this restaurant last year and enjoyed it - so this time we invited another couple. We wanted to have a leisurely brunch before heading over to see the latest exhibit at the Natural History museum. They loved it - the food was good - they raved over the omelets, the smoked salmon was of a high quality and the bacon was crisp without being dry. They asked us to add it to the small list of restaurants on our regular go-to list.
