Firewheel Cafe - Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Ratings and Reviews
We went early in the evening, our waiter was prompt and courteous. We had more than one staff check in on us and tend to our needs if any. I had a pasta dish and it was very slightly overcooked but was ok for me and the rest of the table all had excellent meals (Steaks all cooked properly to desire). Soups and salads were right on for flavor and content ( the dressing option was phenominal). The bread/rolls offered were crunchy on the outside and I prefer a softer roll however had good bread flavor. The desserts were a good portion size and delicious. Our waiter was knowledgeable of the menu and described items to a T. We had comfortable seating and was not to cold as that tends to be an issue when living in TX. Hot outside, cold inside. A very pleasant experience overall for our first visit. It is a pricier menu for us so not for everyday dining but good for occasions.
I thought there was a dinner menu you could order from, but upon sitting was told it was buffet only. Being a vegetarian that never really works out to be worth it for me and this wasn't any different. I had mason jar salad, green beans and potatoes. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and had I know in advance we would have gone elsewhere. The food was good just not worth the cost. We also reserved an outdoor table and were frequently forgotten about. I needed to go find our server to get the check.
We made reservations to go here based on the menu. When we got there, we realized the menu listed on this app is NOT the menu for this restaurant. It is the menu for Stories--the nicer restaurant in the hotel. The dinner for this restaurant was a buffet including fried chicken and tater tots--something that as parents we would have enjoyed if our daughter was with us, but not when we were on a work retreat weekend with adults. And, we were celebrating our friends' 10th anniversary, so we were looking for something nice. This was not it.
I will say that we had a nice breakfast the next morning there and enjoyed the buffet. But, if you think to are going to enjoy the food on what they show as the dinner menu on here, you will be disappointed.
On a positive note, we ended up getting into Stories at about 9:00 and the food was delicious! Some others ate at the BBQ place and said it was really good too.
We were unaware that they were not serving their full menu, only a buffet. The food was good, a little inconsistent with the offerings, and they seemed to be running out of quite a few things as the night progressed. The service was a bit disorganized, but that's why I'm not a big buffet fan. Had I have known it was a buffet only, I would have made other arrangements.
This was our first visit to this wonder ful restaurant. It was a buffet with lots of different foods available. Our waiter was wonderful for the service and conversation. We were a party of six and we all enjoyed the food and the experience. We will be back.
We went to celebrate three birthday and my parents anniversary! It was special since my parents were visiting from out of town and this was their only weekend! It came highly recommended by our friends but we were touched by their gesture; they paid for half our meal as 'their' gift to us! In ALL my years of travel and dining (and I've been around the world), I've never been treated to such a kind and thoughtful gesture! Our server Christa was wonderful and we look forward to going there again!!!!
Not my favorite restaurant in the universe. It is a hotel restaurant which does not help. Staff is very friendly and food (buffet only on that occasion) was ok. Nothing to write home about. As far as restaurants go, it's very average. I would not go back, but given that it is one of the few options at the Hyatt, I may have to :).
Our family had the buffet dinner during BBQ theme night. We thought for sure that BBQ in TX would be at least on par with other local BBQ joints around but we were wrong. The meats including the brisket was leathery and tough, and the rib was so dry that it was more of a jerky. Even the chicken was super dry and we were there for an early dinner (5:45pm reservations), so it was not even sitting there all that long. A major disappointment for us and our out of town guests. The dessert was nice and includes a chocolate fountain display. Service was great and we did receive an email from the restaurant manager apologizing for the poor quality of food. Omelette station staff made amazing omelettes at breakfast the next day.
We expected much better service. The kids had the children's buffet, the adults ordered an appetizer and entrees from the menu. No-one ever removed our appetizer plates, the children's buffet plates or dessert plates throughout the entire dinner. It took a long time to receive our drink order and we had to ask for more water at the table several times. Usually service is more proactive in a resort restaurant.
We enjoyed Firewheel and we ended up eating from the buffet instead of off the menu. It was very good and had a good selection. Also, I enjoyed the dessert buffet which had everything from a chocolate fountain, to cookies, and cakes including cheesecake. The service was good, but a little slow at times and not quite as friendly as the rest of the staff on the property.
We were pleased with out lunch at the Firewheel. However, we had intended to eat at the Breakfast Buffet. Of course it had closed 5 minutes before we arrived. I had told our guests that it was the best BF we had ever gone to, a great family outing. On our previous visits we had always gone on holiday occasions when it had stayed open longer. Our suggestion is that you make it a brunch buffet and keep it open until 2 PM or so. Thank you for the feedback opportunity.
We were staying at this highly touted resort and this is the family oriented resturant for the resort. We ate there three times. We found the service staff to be poorly trained and unorganized. They had a tendancy to stand behind us and mumble which we found anoying. The food seemed to take a very long time to come out even though the resturant only had a few tables full. Little things like no bread plates for a dinner meal, no table cloth or place mats, or coasters for ice water or tea all made for a subpar experience. The food prices seem high for the experience. We expect more from a Hyatt facility.
We had a choice of ordering from the menu or trying the buffet. The buffet is the best deal, a good variety of food choices, especially the elaborate dessert table. The enchilada casserole was really good. Our server was friendly and attentive. It wasn't the most romantic setting for our anniversary dinner, lots of kids and noise, but we are grandparents so we enjoyed watching them.
