    Expected better food and service, considering the 21% gratuity that is automatically added to your check!

    I'm an "average" guy, 56 year-old professional. A friend and I chose this restaurant to eat at before seeing a show at Pantages (which is a short walk). The restaurant is pretty casual and, wearing a sport coat, I was overdressed. Our server, Stephanie, was awesome! Unfortunately, she was the only highlight for the night. Let's start with the menu. It's extremely limited. You primarily have three real choices for an entre - a hamburger, salmon, or fried chicken. We chose the chicken and were really disappointed that it was dry, overcooked, and tasteless. We even asked for sauces on the side, but they were as bland as the chicken. The serving size (half chicken) was plenty, but it was on par with a grocery store deli fried chicken. We ordered prawns (4 small prawns come with each order) and some oysters as appetizers. They tasted fine, but like everything on the menu, they were premium-priced. We each ordered a drink from the bar, and the drinks were good. This restaurant charges a hefty service charge of 18%, and the service charge IS NOT the tip. Our check was $300 with an additional 18% tip. For the quality of food, $300 was just way too much. We actually ended up running through the drive-thru at McDonald's to get a couple of filet of fish sandwiches after the show! I won't be going back. One final note if you're walking from any of the parking garages for the Pantages Theatre. There are a high number of homeless along the sidewalks between the restaurant and the theatre. No one bothered us, but if I had been with my wife or children, it would have concerned me.

    The food tasted fantastic although the portions could’ve been a little bigger. The ambience was great and our server was wonderful. we went to dinner before a show with the Pantages and got out with plenty of time to spare.

    Food was great. (Get the rolls 😅. The rosemary and butter was so tasty!) Salmon - crusted skin was same consistency as the rosemary (waiter said it’s a Korean grill they use - amazing texture. Bougie fries : truffle fries so good. Especially the crispy ones. Endgame - lol I felt like an Avenger - the amount of alcohol was enough to beat Thanos to a pulp. The lychee was definitely infused 👀😅 I tried my sisters rice and oh my. Wil need to get some next time with the Salmon. Mac and cheese had a spicy kick to it

    Our party had to leave suddenly and our food order was quickly and efficiently packaged up so we could take it with us. The staff were more than kind to assist us, and our meals were delicious when we ate them after we reached home. Stellar food and service.

    This was such a mixed bag! The menu here was well-conceived, creative, and very tasty. There were far too few choices, so we had to order entrees we would not have otherwise picked, but they ended up being quite good. The service was wonderful. Everyone was friendly, incredibly helpful, and fast. If I could give 6 stars for service, I would. Also, the food was absolutely delicious, limited menu or not. WONDERFULLY tasty food. The three downsides: 1) The place is geared heavily to a younger, energetic party crowd. This makes for a fun, lively atmosphere. However, without a restaurant in a separate area from the club, the noise level really damages the atmosphere of a nice, quality restaurant. The noise level was seriously high -- club level high, with your water glass vibrating visibly on the table to the music. You could not talk. This is GREAT for a club or bar, but unless ALL your hotel guests want to experience this for dinner, it means they are FORCED to experience this. The rooftop bar is iconic, and obviously the big party draw here. If you're going to dedicate the rooftop bar to the club crowd (we were up there, and it was pretty loud and wild), maybe save the downstairs for hotel guests who don't want their brains bruised from the music during dinner. 2) We eat out a lot, and we enjoy trying new restaurants. In our many years of trying many restaurants, I have very rarely found unwanted items in our food. However, TWICE at this restaurant I found a mid-length human hair in food. Once was at this dinner (in a delicious order of greens), and the other was the day before in the same restaurant (embedded in butter, at breakfast). I know these things *can* happen anyplace, but in both cases, it was disgusting and for it to happen twice in the same place on consecutive days tells me someone needs to change how they deal with food safety in the back. 3) The menu needs more choices. It was all delicious, but far too few choices.
