This was our first time visiting Cambria Suites! Recommended for the last year by friends, we decided to give it a try. We found the atmosphere much better than expected, the food was great, service was excellent, and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends. We will be seeing you again!

My husbands mushroom soup was excellent. That’s it. I had the filet and scallops. Steak did not melt in your mouth. Scallops were the size of quarters. Very unforgettable. My husbands had fiket and crab cakes. He rated them the same as I rated my meal. Our Caesar salad had horseradish in it. Very unusual and did not add. Highly recommended to us. We would not recommend esp for the price point. Our waitress was very good.

Dinner with my family (5 yr old included) was phenomenal! Wonderfully sourced ingredients (local where available), wonderful value and the service was top notch. Location is unassuming, but wonderful experience.

Our waiter Edward was very knowlegable, friendly and answered all our questions. He made some good suggestions. Order 2 different fish dishes - very good. Decent wine list. Small area so I would suggest considering making reservations.

You wouldn't think that you would find such a super meal in a hotel in TC. Superb food and reasonable prices and service that was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I would absolutely recommend to dine here while visiting Traverse City.

Several of our wine choices were unavailable and a bottle of white wasn't chilled. Gold beets were actually red beets and the morel mushroom risotto just had 1 and pieces of other. Other than that, dishes were great. Filets we're very good, as were the various fish dishes

Very good food, service as well. Some classics , like various 'surf and turf' but others take classic ingredients like salmon, whitefish, perch, and do them a little differently. Reasonable wine prices including wines by the glass; wish a few more of the wines by the glass were from the local vineyards.

Loved the food and thought the atmosphere was very nice, not too fussy and formal. As we were settling our bill, a family with young kids came in. The staff handled the situation well, but I was glad to be leaving. I would not bring kids there.

Got a lobster bisque and the lobster was so rubbery I could not eat it. They did take it off my bill but didn't offer to replace it with anything (I did eat the broth though). Also got a shrimp scampi and the shrimp was over done as well. When we got the bill they added someone else's meal on our ticket. Overbilled almost $50.00, so glad I checked. Waitress just laughed. Overall our 40th Anniversary dinner was a bust.

The food was wonderful. The setting? I was baffled that nothing was done to create any atmosphere or separation from the hotel. We felt like we were seated in the breakfast buffet of a mid level suites hotel - or in a hotel lobby. The elevator was right there and while dining on my wonderful meal - the food truly was fantastic - I watched maid carts and sandy swim suited families go by. It would be so easy to screen the dining area from the elevator lobby, dim the lighting, put candles on the tables... please try!

This isn't the same place you read about on Open Table, Yelp and Trip Advisor. An entirely new kitchen crew has ruined one of the best restaurants in TC.
The only thing worse than the food was "Ellie" and her amateur, pretentious style of service. This waitress will singlehandedly ruin what little remains of a previously fine restaurant.

 (Memphis)·Dined on July 4, 2017

Normally, we avoid hotel restaurants unless we're overnight guests there, but since Reflect Bistro was highly rated, we decided to try it. Because we enjoyed our first meal (dinner) so much, we went there 2 times within just a few days apart (second time being for breakfast). We highly recommend it; however for those on a budget, this restaurant may be one to experience on a special occasion. It's very small, has a quieter atmosphere, the food is uniquely prepared and is delicious. The servers were very pleasant & attentive to their diners.

 (Orlando)·Dined on June 29, 2017

The food was deliciously prepared with some innovative culinery surprises, and was creatively presented, the service was attentive without being intrusive, the white table cloths lent an air of formality, but the ambiance was friendly and warm. Even when our party hadn't begun to say our good-byes after four hours, we were never rushed and we felt invited to stay as long as our conversation would allow. My only suggestion would have been to lower the lights to provide a more subdued ambiance; otherwise, we could not have been more pleased.

Great idea for reasonably priced good food and good wine.

Not the best atmosphere but a good tradeoff for the quality and pricing on the menu.

One server for the whole restaurant. Too busy to take care of everyone properly.

This restaurant is next to the lobby of the Cambria Suites. There aren't too many tables but it appears there are additional tables on the other side of the quick bites counter. The staff is extremely friendly and cheerful. They were really good with our kids as well as kids at nearby tables. And the food was SO TASTY!! Really truly so good. The service was prompt. The seating is in an open area so you can watch people arrive and depart so great people watching

We were in the Traverse City area for a few days and decided to try this restaurant as it was so well rated on Trip Advisor. The food was very good (I had the fish duo as a main and it was excellent). Others in my party tried the mushroom soup and the lobster bisque and both were very good but a bit pricy ($15/cup of soup). The service was excellent. The setting is fine, not terribly intimate and tables are relatively close. My dinner with cocktail, appetizer, main and dessert was around $50 without tip.

Came here based on Yelp reviews. The food was awful. Steak tartare and mussels among worst we've ever had. Calamari was so so. Atmosphere fitting g for a lower-end hotel lounge. At end of meal we were encouraged by waitress to leave a positive review so she could get a prize - could that be the source of good reviews for a bad restaurant? So many great restaurants in Traverse-this is not one of them.

Excellent menu, food selection great, hard to choose. Service was a bit slow and we wanted to order the lobster Benny but the waitress said they were out of lobster, however a table beside us that came in after us received it. Three in our party ordered the filet and all three were over cooked but overall food was really good.
