    We had a reservation for 11 am, got there and they said the kitchen closed at 10:30 am. It wasn't really clear from OpenTable that this was a hotel restaurant, which wouldn't necessarily be the worst thing but it would have been good to know because it didn't really fulfill our needs. I don't know why OpenTable (or the restaurant) let us make reservations during a time the kitchen was closed! Terrible experience. I'm not sure if OpenTable or the restaurant is more to blame.

    Overall, the experience was nice. It’s located inside of Marriott hotel, very close to the entrance. The ambience was nice and it was quiet. The service was great and food was decent. Me and my wife’s meal required more seasoning but was still pretty good.

    Granted, the hotel was completely empty thanks to the COVID, But the staff was attentive and great. We were the only ones in the restaurant. Or the hotel. The ambience was great, and the fireplaces were lit. It was a great experience. Recommend the salmon kale salad.

    This restaurant is so good, I can't figure out what it is doing in the lobby of the Marriott Hotel at the Fair Oaks Mall. And when you add its amazing selection of bourbons, if this restaurant was in a trendy location, it would be jammed every night. Then again, maybe it's nice to have a place where you know you can get a table and the food is great.

    Drinks were great, creative and delicious. Service was good, attentive and prompt. Unique appetizers the beef spring rolls were crunch, savory and delicious. Husband got the jambalaya pasta which was really good. I had the fried chicken which was well done, the accompaniments of roasted carrots and potatoes were good, but not my preference, would have preferred a waffle or mashed potatoes as my side. The restaurant being in a hotel is a bit odd, it wasn’t really busy and it felt odd eating in a hotel we weren’t staying in, but it was definitely good. Would recommend

    I arrived with a OpenTable reservation after regular business hours and there were no host available so I sat myself at the bar. Tony G was the bartender and I had asked where could I check in for my reservations and I was hit with a confused look, along with a response “I’m just the bartender” but he was able to go to back and check with another staff and make sure I got my points. The service was attentive but it stopped after I received my meal. I order the jambalaya which was recommended and it turned out to be watered down wrongly used noodles. After it was brought out from the kitchen Luke-warm, no one bothered to ask how was everything but was only available to close out my tab. The only thing good was the glass of wine I ordered with it to wash everything down. Usually a bartender would ask if I’d like another glass and that also did not happen.

    Don’t let the fact that the restaurant is in a hotel near a mall fool you. The food here easily rivals restaurants in the city — very interesting takes on familiar dishes. Bison meatloaf stuffed with gooey buffalo mozzarella and topped with the most amazing bacon jam I’ve ever had was delicious. Crispy Brussels Sprouts were great too. And the Mac & Cheese came with very generous portions of one of four proteins — lobster, crab, bacon or beef short ribs. The beef short ribs also come as an entree. The beef takes 72 hours to prepare (first sous-vide, then marinated, then finished in the oven). The menu has three levels - appetizers, small plates, and large plates. Appetizer and small plate, if you’re a light eater or not very hungry. And appetizer and large plate if your famished. The portions are generous. The chef clearly takes pride in his craft and comes out at some point during the meal to greet everyone. Highly recommended. I stumbled on this place last week and came back again when I had family visiting.

    After looking at the menu online, I made a reservation for a business lunch. Worst experience and an embarrassing selection. We arrived with no host and sign that the dining room was closed. The waitress/bartender came from behind the bar and was about to sit us at a high top table even after we explained we had made a lunch reservation. We asked to be sat at a booth which was incredibly uncomfortable. The service was terrible, never checking in and we had to flag her down anytime we needed service. The food was cold and fast food quality. We were mortified we had suggested this place for a client meeting. Never again!

    Quality small plate starters to share. Main course was average at best. We had meat loaf that came out with a cool center. Dish had obviously been sitting out and not warmed all the way. Also had a burger that was just ok, and wasn’t given enough time to rest before serving— resulting a greasy, wet bun. This restaurant is in a hotel. While it is tucked to the side of the lobby, the carpet is dingy and the wallpaper and lighting is hotel lobby style wallpaper and lighting. There is also a faint smell of stale smoke in the air. Would recommend for a drink and starters. Would pass for dinner. Good service overall.

    A good hotel restaurant is rare; this is one of those. Winners are jambalaya, housemade tater tots, and the fresh fish whether Covina or salmon.

    I am not sure I missed it somewhere in Open Table, but I was not aware that this restaurant was inside Marriott until we arrived at the address. The food was tasty but I felt hungry after we left whereas at some restaurants, I only get the entree and I can't even finish it. The wait staff was friendly but seemed a bit overwhelmed even though there weren't many people seated - not sure if they were also responsible for bar patrons as well. It took a long time to get a beer given the number of people and we had to ask a second time for a second beer as I think the wait staff forgot the original request. As hotel restaurants go, it was less expensive than we thought and we did like the taste of the food, just maybe more of it.

    The setting of the restaurant is unusual in that it is in a relatively open space in the front of the hotel. At first, we weren't sure that we were in the right place. The variety of dishes on the menu was what attracted us to try the restaurant in the first place and we weren't disappointed. The food was prepared well and had excellent flavors. The dishes were meant to be small, almost tapas style, but the price appropriately reflected that; it was possible to try a number of different dishes at a reasonable price. One waiter was very personable and helpful while another waiter acted as if he couldn't get rid of us soon enough. Overall, we enjoyed our dinner and will definitely be coming back.

    I was very excited about all the gluten free options. It is very hard to find crab cakes and short rib that are Gluten free and they had both. The small plates are actually very generous portions and everything we had was wonderful. While the menu feels upscale it is a casual environment and you can dress up or come in shorts.
