I have to think about it.
I took my boyfriend and his family last time and we had a wonderful time, our waitress was very friendly and attentive, the food was excellent, it was perfect. Then this time, my daughter and I went for Mother's Day I was bragging to her how good it was last time. Our waiter left us after getting me water, my daughter didn't even get her drink from him, I had to call someone to get her a drink, our waiter obviously was into his big group of tables and forgot us on the corner. He didn't get to check on except when it was time to give me my bill. I had to ask the other waitress to call him so my daughter and I can go. I'm so very disappointed not to mention it was my day, Mother's Day.

The restaurant is in the middle of the lobby. It is loud. Everyone that walks by can look right in. We did have live music which was nice . It is very bright and they have very distracting color changing lights. If you are looking for a private ambiance this is not the place. It took a really long time to get our order. Our waitress seemed a little lost and forgetful. Brought very sweet tea (she said she knew it was extra sweet because she wasn’t paying attention) and an extra glass of unsweetened tea for me to water it down. The prices are exorbitant. I ordered herbed chicken and my husband got fillet mignon. They were both braced in the same sauce. The chicken wasn’t herbed as I expected. On the website it said outdoor sitting but we found out it’s not the case. I also scheduled the reservation online and when I called to confirm they didn’t have anything reserved.
May come here for brunch but it’s not a dinner date kind of a restaurant

I guess that one of my frustrations is how clunky the open table app experience is. I was at market garden at the Hilton last night but do not see any credit being given for the hefty 1000 points in the system.
This is now the second time this has happen at this restaurant. I brought and paid for a group of 10 people the Sunday between Xmas and New Years and this reservation was never acknowledged. Really disappointing.
I have sent at least one query regarding my points to the open table administrator. No reply whatsoever.

Thought we were going to an actual restaurant but this is just the lobby bar of the Hilton. Seems to be more marketing than market. Room service food dressed up a little... NOT a gastropub. :(

We went to Hilton Market Kitchen for Sunday brunch. The hotel lobby, atrium and restaurant were very modern, attractive and comfortable. We arrived 10 minutes early and after a short wait our hostess Jennifer got us a great table. Our waitress/server Sally was very attentive and helpful and brought us an ample supply of (included in price) Mimosas (that was a nice surprise). Even though it was very busy Jennifer and Sally really helped make it a great experience. Food was varied and very good too as was the female singer. Definitely plan on coming back soon - overall 4.5 stars.

Recent visit was on Thanksgiving. Buffett style service. Overbooked and understaffed. Plenty of food, seating was being thrown up while dining, long waits for drinks from bar. Overall overpriced for dinner, as experience was more like being at a wedding and seated so far from the bride & groom you wonder why you bothered to show up or why you were invited in the first place. Food was tasty and will go back, just not on a holiday.

The most disorganized dining experience we have had lately. We could never quite figure out the issue, whether staffing or just plain lack of organization. We had to order drinks and the meal three different times from three different servers, including the manager. The setting is a lobby bar for a Hilton hotel; not a very good choice (and the only option) for guests of the hotel with kids. A big disappointment.

Thank you for you review and I must say it was not the experience we would want any of our guest to ever have. Though we would always love to hear the remarks of the great or good experience our visitors and guest have, it is the comments such as yours that allows us to step back and see what we need to do to make sure you as well as all our future guest never feel the way you did on that day. I would love to hear from you please feel free to call me F&B Manager Freddy Lopez 352-854-1400

The menu was better than most restaurants in the Ocala area but the prices were way to high for a bar restaurant. Definitely fine dining prices. I would not recommend this restaurant because of this factor though I thought the food was fine.

Had Mother’s Day brunch. The air conditioning wasn’t working so they had all the doors open. Flys were getting in and we’re flying around food. Hardly any breakfast items. No omelet station no waffles no pastries. Hot and mediocre food. Definitely not worth the money. Very disappointed.

Was quite expensive for Easter brunch and had only eggs benedict for a breakfast item, rest of buffett was lunch-dinner menu. Buffet wss set up too close to entry door, and seating even for those loke us with reservations was handled strangely wiyh long lines and no clear method or preference for reservation holders. Service staff was great, master chef visited tables as a really nice, friendly touch and he listened to comments.

While the food was ok the service was virtually nonexistent. Stood at the hostess station waiting to be seated for 7 minutes while watching two employees just hang around the bar area talking and laughing. Then waited for another ten minutes for our drinks. We ordered and then some time later had to ask the server if she put our order in because nothing had come out yet. Then our appetizer comes out about 5 minutes later. The food when we eventually got it was just room temperature and the cheese that was once melted was once again a nice solid piece. Not at all likely to return here.

Have been coming here for several years on a monthly basis, since it was called Arthur's (my mother, who is 93, likes to sit at a table rather than a booth). During this time we have witnessed its steady decline, despite several management changes and renovations. Last Sunday was the worst. We had reservations, but they weren't worth a darn, as we still had to wait for a table. The person at the omelet station was an abysmal cook who served an undercooked lump of food swimming in RAW egg product. Soup was Velveeta cheese with beer dumped in it. Green beans were completely cold, despite being kept in a "hot" tray, not only unappetizing, but a potential health hazard.
The only bright spots at this place are George and Sally, the great servers who have hung on through thick and thin. If it were up to me, I would NEVER go back, but, alas, my mother likes the place.

Waited for over 10 minutes to be seated. After that time, went to inquire about where to give Open Table reservation to, only to find there was no one to take the reservation.

Regardless, we decided to look at the menu, only to find that a number of the selections listed on the Open Table menu for this establishment, were nowhere to be found on either the lunch and/or dinner menu.

Very disappointing! No one there seemed to care much about our patronage, so we left.

Just awful. This "restaurant" is nothing more than a few tables in a hotel lobby. Nothing like the pictures, and certainly no food was served. I made reservations here for a quick dinner with my company's Vice-President based off of the "reviews" and was humiliated. I can't help but wonder who fabricated some of these reviews, but this place needs to be investigated by OpenTable. Never again.

We were an elderly couple alone on Christmas Eve and between meeting the chef and having frequent conversations with our waiter, we almost felt like we were with family. Our table for two looked out on the patio/pool area and the atmosphere was delightful.

It was not mentioned in Opentable that the restaurant was in a Hilton or that the only menu they serve on Sunday am is $30 brunch. We got there at 2:00 and evidently brunch is over at 3:00 but they were very nice and did not rush us. The selection was very good.
Sally our server was fabulous!
She kept the Mimosa's flowing.
The hotel seemed very nice and quiet even though it is right off I-75.
We are planning to go back and stay for a weekend. Very impressed.

It is not obvious from reading the overview that this is a hotel restaurant. I only say that because my expectations immediately changed once I realized this. However the service was excellent and the food was good. The price value point was better than expected for a hotel but my husband did say the ribs were average at best. Honestly the food was average not bad not great.
