My guest and I arrived on time for our 8:30 reservation, there was no hostess to seat us so we made our way to a table ourselves, as a server walked by we had to ask for a menu. At that point I figured the server knew we wanted to order something, we waited 15 minutes before my guest walked to the bar to ask for a server to take our order, the bartender said he would send someone over. We waited another 10 minutes and decided to get up and leave a go to another venue close by on Franklin Ave. This was my first time going to the Garden City Hotel and it was extremely disappointing!

Great service and good food but very small portions for some menu items. I had a baked dish for the Sunday brunch and it was very tasty but it was very small. I had to fill up on the bread. On Friday we ate dinner there. My wife ordered the lobster roll for $28 which was good and adequate size. I ordered the grilled octopus which was listed as a MAIN course, not an appetizer. When it came we both were stunned. There was a small bed of couscous and two small peppers and on top was the grilled octopus, one tentacle which was the size of my pinky. It cost $23. I am not a complainer but I can't believe I didn't request to see a manager and ask if it was a joke. I'm also sorry I didn't take a picture. My wife and I were joking if there was a hidden camera to catch our reaction. In any case I want to emphasize that both times we ate there the service by staff and management was exceptional.

Responded on September 18, 2021

Thank you for your feedback. I am glad that you enjoyed the service and food. Our portions and pricing are in line with market prices. With inflation in the food industry, some delicacies have increased industry wide. The octopus we use comes from the Mediterranean Sea, arguably the best. However, if you are dissatisfied with anything we would love the opportunity to correct things if you bring it to our attention when you are dining. I hope you will give us another opportunity to serve you.

I had arrived with my party about 5-10 mins before our reservation to check in. At the time of the reservation, we were told it would be a 5 minute wait so that our table can be ready. 20-30 mins later was when it was actually ready.

The place was short staffed, so I wouldn't blame the service we did get. It is definitely a management issue. There appeared to be 2 people "checking" the place, but never with any of the tables and never assisting staff.

The waiter was polite when he was able to get to us. Food was good, but nothing exceptional for the price. Decor is what you would expect from any hotel restaurant.

It was overall, just good. I wouldn't turn down an invitation here, but I don't think I would return.

Responded on June 24, 2021

As in most busy restaurants there is sometimes a small delay and I sincerely apologize that you experienced this. Regrettably we are experiencing the very same staffing challenge that most employers are struggling with across the country which is a low volume of people seeking to return to the workforce. We believe it is best to be honest about this and ask for your patience as we work diligently to fortify our business with talented, dedicated and well trained new team members

I booked the King Bar only because the Red Salt Room had a private party. I didn’t realize that the noise level was so high due to the Triple Crown race on TV. The bar itself is attractive, the chairs were so low for my tall family we all asked for pillows! Food was very good but the service was way too slow.
Not returning too soon.

Responded on June 8, 2021

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize that the noise level was high and the chairs not to your liking. The TV's are only on for the Belmont Stakes race which only lasts a few minutes but it is understandable that people get excited and may have been a bit loud during the race. Usually the TV's are off during so we do hope you give us another opportunity.

This restaurant was very deceiving around Redsalt and king bar we had planed on dining in red salt and were stuck in King Bar. The hostess was really less than helpful even after the manger told us he could accommodate. While we had some very good food, the service was mediocre at best. We only saw our server when flaging him down and had to ask for our check after being there for 3 hours.

My first indoor dining experience in a year and it was outstanding. Tables were well spaced for safety, so we felt very at ease. We were seated by the fire for the first time, and the ambience overall was lovely. Seafood platter was fresh and pasta tasted homemade, with generous short rib. So delicious. Our server, Brian, was professional, attentive and kind. Overall, a wonderful experience.
