    Understanding the cold weather that night, the heating or insulation on the pod needs to improve so that the cold doesn’t become a detriment to the dining experience. Unfortunately the cold air and drafts kept coming in which didn’t allow us to fully enjoy our dinner. Service and food on the other end was great!

    We arrived on time for our reservation but had to wait because the Pod had its air turned on rather than heat. They noticed it and changed it to heat but we were freezing the entire dinner. We noticed people in the other pods with their coats off but we had to keep ours on and use the blankets because it was freezing so we ate quickly and left. Average at best.

Mary went above and behind to make our early valentine days dinner one to remember. Would recommend this to everyone and we definitely plan on coming back.

    We loved the dining pod experience. When we arrived, the table was beautifully set with wooden chargers, beautiful hanging greenery, and our own portable bluetooth speaker to listen to our own music. The food from Cafe Zinc is always outstanding, and the truffle frites cannot be beat. Our server, Stu (sp?) was courteous and offered wonderful service. We enjoyed our dinner and look forward to more like this!

It was beautiful, festive, warm and simply a wonderful experience, down every small detail including the cozy blankets provided. Our meals were top notch and our waitress, Adriana was beyond spectacular. She had a humorous, welcoming, warm personality that made us feel extra special. We will be back!

    Beautiful domes, tastefully decorated in an elegant courtyard lit up at dark. Service was superb. Audrey was very helpful, and thorough. She saw us trying to snap a picture and popped in to take one for us, thank you again Audrey. The food was top notch, I highly recommend the Flatbread for an appetizer, and the duck breast special with wild rice bread pudding, grilled parsnips and mulled wine reduction was a wonderful combination of flavors, and the plate looked stunning. My wife's steak was cooked perfect and the brown butter lemon roasted cauliflower was also. The parm frites that came with it, dipped in the truffle mayo were addictive. Very unique experience that can only be found here and a must-do that I highly recommend.

    H Hotel Dining PodsResponded on January 14, 2023Jesse Q we thank you for the kind words and lovely comments of our food special and service staff! I will make sure that Chef Ryland and Audrey all receive the praise and recognition they deserve.

    Overall great idea with the pods, nevertheless pod was not preheated. The food tasted good, but small things would have made the difference. Chicken and bean soup had almost no chicken, neither beans. Steak medium- rare was over cooked, poppyseed rice had no flavor and glass of white wine was only 1/3 filled. Overall not up to expected standards.

    Our dinner was amazing. Andrea, the waitress, is fabulous. Pod experience was special for us, especially with the Winter/Christmas decor. It should be more transparent that the pods are”free” except you have to spend a minimum of $150. It’s in the small print online and not mentioned when we called.

    We had a wonderful dinner in the pod. It was warm and inviting inside and the blankets were a special touch. The hanging centerpieces were very festive. All the hostesses and servers were friendly and welcoming. They made our 5 and 7 years olds feel comfortable. It was an excellent experience. There was only one dinner option for our vegan family member.

    Our son and his girlfriend from Chicago visited us for Christmas and after mass on Christmas Eve we enjoyed dinner in one of the Cafe Zinc dining pods. In was a very cold and windy night yet the pod was very comfortable. The pod is a very high quality clear plexiglass dome with a sliding door and two sources of heat. It was decorated inside for Christmas and there is a Bluetooth speaker to play your music. The food and the service at Cafe Zinc are both excellent.

    We had a wonderful time eating in the dining pod. It was warm and cozy and had a festive ambiance in the the courtyard. They thought of everything to make the experience very pleasant… chandelier, throws for each, rug under the dining set, blue tooth speaker, and a pager for service. The food was excellent and so was the service.

    Everything was nice. Food was decent but still over priced for what you get. Biggest downside was they don't change the table cloths between guests so we had lots of food stains on our from the previous diners. Pretty gross and is equivalent to not washing a table after people leave.

    H Hotel Dining PodsResponded on December 13, 2022Good Morning Ashley - We appreciate you taking the time to review your dining experience, every review helps our staff learn and grow our service standards. Linens are changed after every reservation. My sincerest apologizes that your table cloth was dirty. We will make sure that the staff is taking a better look at what they are placing on the tables prior to setting them for the next reservation. We hope that you will dine with us again, giving us another opportunity!

    The pod itself was a nice experience! The lights inside did however keep flickering they were looked at and the gentleman stated that the batteries probably needed to be changed. Decorated nicely, making the atmosphere delightful! The food was a disappointment we have the t-bone steak dinner which came with fries, not my choice, they weren't even hand cut fries they were bag fries that were over seasoned! My girlfriend had the pan seared scallops, they were delicious however not jumbo, the risotto was good but the beet root emulsion was a confusing paring. The French onion soup was fantastic!The pod was very close to the adjacent bar and the music spoiled over as did the crowd at times. Over all we enjoyed the pod and the ambience with the holiday decorations. I would would recommend the pod dinning experience for just that the experience however it is pricey!
