It was New Years Eve and they were slammed and service was taxed a little. Otherwise it was 5 stars all the way. Staff was super helpful and friendly. Cheese board was great. Meatballs were very tasty, I wanted more. Wish they were open more days. Loved it. Best sour dough bread ever!

The noise level was unpleasantly high. I guess you need to keep groups from congregating at the bar. There were 15 guys, more or less, just standing near the entrance end of the bar. Our waiter was very nice, and efficient.

First visit, did not disappoint despite challenges with transformer and water issues that affected most downtown restaurants. My friends and I had a lovely evening and the hotel is a perfect 20 step walk from Jones Hall. Great concert, wonderful meal. Wish they had a greater variety.

Great food. Great service. Restaurant has great ambiance attached to a beautiful hotel with amazing art work. Lovely place to dine after enjoying entertainment at Jones Music Hall or the Hobby Center -- walking distance from both. Great selection of cab wines including Cakebread and Camus.

Food was good, but service was very slow, much slower than normal. Since we ate there pre-symphony, were concerned about making the show. To make up for the slow service, they did comp a glass of wine

Was very dissatisfied with service at this hotel 4-5 years ago & vowed never to return. Attend plays & theater’s downtown & this is ideal location for overnight stay. This was first time back after remodeling & understand new ownership & management! I cannot say enough about changes that have been made! Excellent!!! My compliments to all as the service, food, and total hotel accommodations was excellent!
We will be back!
