I had eaten there twice during my stay and it took over an hour for food to arrive at our table after we ordered.

Great place to meet convention going colleagues for a casual meal. The menu is moderate in expense and high in freshness and appeal. Try the crab cakes which are a local specialty. It can be busy, so if you can, go at off hours.

Food was fine but every single table needed to be shimmed. They were super uneven and very hard not to tip your glass of water everywhere. The tables are also super close together, which made it even more awkward.

We were staying at a modest hotel nearby that did not offer breakfast. But I saw that the Marriott Marquis Anthem was mere steps away so we made reservations. We will definitely come here again. We were greeted so warmly and our waiter was wonderful as were the people serving the food at the buffet. Everyone was so warm and welcoming! And we really felt cared for every step of the way. We are elderly but not disabled. Getting that little bit of extra care means a lot to us at this stage of life. We got it from everyone today. And I haven’t even gotten to the food which was fabulous and abundant. I had expected very high prices and was willing to pay but the cold breakfast which we had was a bargain and provided more than enough to fuel us for the morning. The space is bright and cheerful besides. The Anthem is a winner in every way.

Food was okay but I would say that being able to cook eggs properly is the fundamental requirement of a good breakfast place. I would say it was average. Cappuccino was good.

Antham was very convenient for the business lunch due to the location close to the convention center.

I booked my reservation for 12:00 through Open /Table. I was at the reception desk at 11:55. Another, 4 person group with a 12:15 reservation was sat before me and my party. Also, the waiter was not very attentive.

Soup was good, but lukewarm. Caesar salad dressing was more of vinaigrette. Service was okay.

More than 1 napkin at the table and some of the silverware was dirty and we had to request replacements. The table had not fully been wiped down and there was some food on the floor underneath. We were not given any menus and after we had received our drinks we had to stop a passing server to ask for them. It took a long time to get someone's attention to get the bill and then we had to leave the table to find someone to process the payment for it. The food was decent but the service and cleanliness of the restaurant was not acceptable.

They were very accommodating despite our party of 5 coming in waves. I had the seared tuna salad and asked for the tuna barely seared. There was six large pieces of tuna which I really loved. Salad was very good, would have been out of this world if they used some type of wasabi dressing.

The food was fine and the ambiance OK. But, after we ate our meal, the staff started pulling all the tables and chairs off the floor for what appeared an upcoming event. It became noisy and disruptive to the business conversation. We were sitting in a dining area with only one other table as they removed all the other furniture around us. Its as if we were being forced to leave.

The menu is pretty basic but the seared rare tuna salad nicoise I had was very fresh and tasty. The ambiance is Earl Schieb's living room. (Robin Williams joke for bright and a bit garrish)

It's good for business food but would take a customer to the nicer Arrozo restaurant attched to the Marriott if budget allowed.

I went for the classic Hot Shoppes experience. The service was poor, the food was not cooked well, the cake was frozen, and the prices were high for what we had.
