    Lovely meal with interesting menu; food could have been hotter but that’s a small quibble. My party agreed we’d all go here again

    The mushroom pasta was rather bland and maybe just a little undercooked. The server was perfectly sweet and warm but a little too attentive. I’ll definitely try again. The Brussels Sprouts and the salmon dish were both wonderful. The restaurant was gorgeous!

    Loved the look of the hotel and the restaurant. Brussels as an appetizer were delicious and generous serving. Unfortunately, the burger and scallops had very little flavor. The presentation was beautiful and appealing but the burger had zero flavoring.

    The sides and appetizers were incredible. Entree itself was okay. Our server seemed afraid (?) of our table. She wouldn’t get closer than 5 feet except to put down a dish.

    Kevin, our server was great. Pakoras were good, charcuterie was good, tuna was bland. Lamb, chicken, salmon, and pasta were all great, burger was good but came out late. Ambience was great and truly complimented the chef’s fusion fare. Liked the privacy curtains, hostess was great. Huge table of laughing folks nearby was the only real distraction and,of course, no reflection on the establishment.

    We paid for the Easter experience and honestly it was awful. Firstly, we arrived on time but had to wait 10mins. That would not be a problem if we had not had to wait over an hour to get our appetizers. We received our main course about 10mins after. I had ordered a steak and eggs and the only thing that came remotely warm on my plate was the potatoes. My partner ordered the eggs Benedict with the smoked salmon. She received hers with ham. In the middle of our already extraordinarily late lunch, we were asked whether or not planned to eat our desert at the restaurant. While I could understand if we had already finished eating and had our meals arrive timely, I could have understood, but it felt as though we were being suggested to leave. We did not leave because we were so ready to leave that we did not complain. Did not enjoy the experience and would not recommend, rather would complain.

    Hello, I wanted to reach out and thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us for Easter brunch. I'm sorry that we missed the mark so badly on service and food. Your experience is not indicative of the hospitality and level of service we pride ourselves on. If you would be willing to give us another opportunity we would love to make it up to you.

    Took over an hour just to get the salads we ordered as an appetizer. I ordered the eggs Benedict; was not impressed. The side salad served on the same dish as the eggs Benedict was limp. Service was below average. The restaurant itself was beautiful, ambiance was very nice.

    Although the food was quite good, the timing of courses and overall service were horrible. Even though we were sat in a timely manner, it took 20 minutes for anyone to bother to take our orders, and then another 40 minutes to get any food on the table. It was a prix fixe menu, yet they managed to forget to bring out 2/3 of the appetizers and ran out of one of the two dessert offerings. While the food might be tasty, I don’t foresee us going back.
