It was ok. Good food, good service, but like most hotel restaurants, extremely overpriced for the quality of food and service you actually recieve.

Meals were OK, but not worth the final price tag - I've had better New York strip cuts from less trendy / high-end steakhouses.

Excellent service! Waitress was amazing! Chocolate brownie dessert and French onion soup were was delicious 😋 Steak was ok and seafood tower was good, but they didn’t have crackers for the crab legs so hard to eat . Overall very pleasant meal ☺️

Went for my wife’s 30th. It was super nice. The food was good. They gave us some Champaign and a dessert. The service was prompt. They were attentive but not overbearing. Overall good experience. I would go again.

This was hands down the best dinner we've ever had! The NY Strip was worth every penny and paired perfectly with a bottle of Cab, best anniversary dinner ever!

This review relates to brunch on weekend. The omelette chef was fantastic. Other food just average. Nothing special for price paid.

Seemed short staffed, totally understand but no table maintenance, drink ordering and held hostage when trying to cash out. Our server was way over her capacity to give even moderate service. Food was expensive, seafood tower over rated.
Restaurants need to hold back reservations if they can’t handle busy!

Slow service and mediocre breakfast. Husbands food was cold and toast was not toasted. He requested additional ht water, it was never delivered. It was interesting, we heard the server tell another couple all of them were management since they were short of help. I hope they are not the trainers. I was disappointed, was really looking forward to a good breakfast before we left.

This is a lovely restaurant, wonderful service. the waitress went above and beyond - it was out anniversary, and they presented us with a lovely dessert. The food was absolutely delicious as was the wine. Nice atmosphere. Probably not for kiddos, good place for a fancy occasion.

We have had one amazing experience on New Year’s eve prior to anything shutting down. We ate there for a special occasion and first date with a group. The service was excellent, the waiter was phenomenal. Every time since, we just have not had the best experience. The staff has been in a bit of a mood, we have had to wait long times to be seated, and the wrong seating was picked without reading special instructions… several other things

Overall, I am just disappointed

We waited over 25 minutes for our first round of drinks. Over 10 minutes for our 2nd round. Water glasses were routinely empty.

Food was below average. The quality of the fillet was far below that of the NY Strip.

Truffle fries and creme brulee were spot on.

While the breakfast buffet was tasty, the kitchen did not pay attention when various dishes ran out. People were often asking for waffles and they would make just a few, then leave. This was pretty disappointing for an expensive brunch.

The service was so so and our food was not cooked properly. We received a well done steak that was supposed to be medium rare. They recooked it but it was still too done and they never even asked us to cut into our steaks when delivered. Mediocre overall.

Service was great the small intimate nature is nice but we were seated right next to the door with staff going in and out all night , seafood tower was mediocre for the price . Our server was top notch and bartender made perfectly crafted drinks , food needs to step up to the level of servers and bartenders

Margaux did a wonderful job of not only accommodating a three generation celebration of our anniversary and three birthdays, but they went the "extra mile" to make it a memorable event for all of us. Highly recommended.
