the pancakes were kind of dry and dense and it was very loud even though having the jazz band was cool ambiance
Food was excellent. Staff extremely professional and friendly. We will definitely go back. Hotel Viking great place to stay
We really enjoyed Sunday brunch. The menu is diverse and we all enjoyed our choices, from eggs to French toast to bagels to a burger. The music is really nice, perhaps a bit loud in volume for easy conversation. We’ll be back!
We went here for an early valentine’s celebration. The food is pricey but we used a food certificate and ordered all the appetizers. The oysters were from buzzard bay and they were so sweet and nicely shucked. Our waiter was very enjoyable!
I was very disappointed with the scheduling. The Viking Hotel's website said that afternoon tea is from 2 to 4 daily, so I made a reservation on Open Table for 2 p.m. on Sunday. We walked in and there was a jazz band blaring so loudly you couldn't hear yourself think. Nobody greeted us as we walked in. I had to approach a group of three waitstaff, all of whom were nice, but who looked disorganized and disheveled, and had a hard time making eye contact with any of them. I said we were there for tea and had reservations, and was told that on Sundays, tea starts at 3. I had to drag her to the next question of: "Then can I make a reservation for 3 p.m.?" She said yes, so I did, and my friend and I went and killed time until 3.
We came back around 2:50, the band was still blaring, and we were ushered in right away, which was nice, but then I saw three other tables were already seated. So they didn't open at 3, they opened earlier than that. That part of the experience was really poorly done, very cheesy for something that's supposed to be sophisticated.
I will say that once we were seated, the service was great and the food was delicious.
Enjoyed our meal, wait staff was attentive and the manager stopped by to see if all was well. We had the scallops and the duck. Enjoyed both.
The lightning was bright and unappealing for evening dining
The waitress stood way back from the table to take our order as if we were infected with something
My filet was excellent but the potatoes stone cold
My husband’s special meal lobster ravioli had no taste
The service was the glaring flaw in an otherwise pleasant evening. It was so slow that, after 2 hours, we had to request the bill instead of enjoying dessert and coffee. The food was good, but underseasoned (NOT something I am used to experiencing as a minimalist myself in that regard). My guests enjoyed our time together and the potential of utilizing valet parking was a HUGE benefit as 2 of the 4 of us suffer from serious mobility challenges.
As always, a great experience! Great food. Excellent service.
The location was nice, a modern flair in a historic style building. Services was good, and tea services was served at a good pacing, and they had a harpist playing holiday music. The only thing I would change was that 2 of us ordered tea service, but the scones and sweets each came in odd numbers.
