Service was fantastic and food delicious. I held a business meeting there for a large party and the only complaint I have is that the staff kept rolling large trash bins and other things in the hallway next to our table. The rolling made such a ruckus it was hard to hear the conversation. They should put down mats on the marble floor to dampen the sound.

We went for a important business meal. The service was amazing. Truly five star. The noise was terrible due to a very loud wedding. We sat on the patio which was better but not pretty. It was still worth it because the food and service made up for it. I would very much go again.

My meal (shrimp capellini) was overcooked. The pasta was stuck together and not enough olive oil to toss. The rest of my group did enjoy their meals. Perhaps just an off dish.

The food here is quite good, but beware: what you read on the menu may not be what ends up on your plate. The restaurant decor is pleasant, but bland. There is no real ambience here. Service is excellent. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly.

The waitress brought the wrong order to someone in our group. She acted offended when we told her. Food was average at best.

Great Mother’s Day brunch, good food and nice activities for the kids will be back next year. I guess the only thing missing was breakfast potatoes.

We went to Mother's Day Brunch. Our table was pretty much ignored. We did not get refills on orange juice (we did not want mimosas) or water, and our plates were not cleared when we went back to the buffet for a second helping. We were seated at a table behind a building post so perhaps that was why we were not checked on. The food in the buffet was pretty good, but no eggs benedict were offered. Few choices for desserts compared to other brunches we have experienced. There were cute balloon sculptures near the buffet tables, which made the area festive. For the very expensive price (with tax and tip included it came to about $75 a person), we expected much more in terms of service and variety of food offerings.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed their Easter brunch and are going back for mother's Day! Staff was outstanding, food was delicious and we loved the atmosphere. Great fun for children, face painting, photo booth, and the Easter Bunny too.

Friendly staff greets you by name if you have been there several times. Parking is so easy right on front of hotel. Quick service for business lunches. Ask for Greek salad with dressing on side.

Husband and I had a wonderful Valentine's dinner. It was our first time eating her and would highly recommend it. The Manager Roger and waiter Noel took excellent care and made us feel very welcomed. All the staff was pleasant and the food/wine was excellent. Will definitely return.

For cocktails, we had a cucumber refresher and Toki Fashion. The drinks are a little on the sweet side and we were not able to detect any actual spirits (Hendricks and Toki Whisky were expected). Besides that, presentation and flavor were fine.

The sesame seared ahi was too fishy for my wife and a little spicy for me, but the seaweed salad that accompanied it was good. Nice presentation. The Roasted carrot soup was excellent. I ordered the cowboy steak, medium rare. For a 16 oz bone-in ribeye, it was a thin slice...well under 1 inch thick with a light pink center instead of the warm red center I was expecting. A little fatty, but flavor and texture were good.

The dining room environment was nothing special...standard hotel restaurant layout. Noise levels were lower than average, in part because so few other diners were present. Overall, the dining experience was okay, but we've definitely had more enjoyable ~$250 meals elsewhere.

Was La Fontana up to the Thanksgiving dinner challenge? Sort of. The prix fixe menu was limited, which is fine, but …. The arugula and shaved brussels sprouts salad was dressed like cole slaw, which was not very appealing and not something the menu hinted at. The turkey and prime rib were fine, but shared the same mashed potato and dressing sides (although one had green beans and the other had brussels sprouts). Desserts were accompanied by a very pleasant vanilla ice cream, one of the higher points. Service was mostly good, but perhaps because of Thanksgiving scheduling, not top notch: a server brought entrées to our table when we were still eating our soup and salad, but it turned out that there were not actually ours, they were meant for another table.

We had a great Thanksgiving Lunch. The food was fabulous. Three of us had the pork loin and the other meal was Prime Rib. We loved the warm bread. It was served with butter and an olive tapenade. All sides were great. The desserts were individual torts. And the coffee was great (usually something that is not always expected). But what really impressed us was the manager came by a couple of times and the server came by numerous times to see how things were going, or if we needed anything. It was a great Thanksgiving Meal.

We were somewhat disappointed. The restaurant was not busy, yet service was still slow. The ambiance was not very good, even for a hotel based restaurant. It was also overly bright for an evening dinner. I don't think we will go again.

We made an appointment at 1PM. We were not seated because not everyone arrived at once. Some were stuck at the long line at the front, which took 20 minutes. Once everyone paid and arrived, then there was a 40-minute wait. If the restaurant cannot seat us until everyone arrived, then it cannot ask us to wait once everyone arrived. It should be either or. The restaurant cannot take both to its advantage. In addition, we made an appointment in advanced.

Once our table was ready after a 40-minute wait, we learned that emptied tables were all over next to ours. Very strange that we even had to wait, let alone for 40-minutes.

Food selection was very limited consider the charge, tips included we paid $70+ per person.

This was the worst Mother's Day Brunch EVER! Reservation at 12:45. Checked in and they charged us immediately including an 18% gratuity for a buffet. Seated at 1:20 only because it was clear we were going to leave. Sat down, no one came to the table, after 10 mins, waived down a waiter to get drinks. It took 2 trips to get 4 drinks and no water. The buffet was set up in the lobby, where the doors were constantly opening, so they food did not stay warm. Oysters ran out before we even got to the buffet line. The staff was working extremely hard as management clearly over booked. But as brunch slowed down, service did not improve, the staff went through the line and sat at the bar to eat themselves.
