Reflect Bistro inside Cambria Suites
Rated #1 In Traverse City by Trip Advisor.
Staff was friendly and attentive, and food was delicious. It was a bit loud, but seeing as it is part of the hotel bar it was not unexpected.
We were in town to see the colors and celebrate my 40th birthday. As anticipated, most of the restaurants were booked so we were happy to have found a table here. When we arrived and looked over the menu we were excited as we love a fine dining experience. We do it often! We started with Oysters. Stop there. Unless you like a lot of grit! Soup was average at best, too much basil. Then the entrees come. Piled high with odd looking deep fried nonsense on top. He got the filet coulottes, The steak had zero seasoning on it and tasted awful. I got the chicken. THEY SERVED ME RAW CHICKEN! Raw. I asked for a salad to replace the raw food, and they actually charged me for it! I was appalled. If you decide to eat here, stick with a burger, definitely what level their kitchen staff is at. I will NEVER come back.
The waitress was inexperienced and brought out the appetizer with the main course.The Calamari were excellent with a nice sauce and asian slaw.My seafood hot pot was excellent though i would omit the sweet potatoes and potatoes and add a little more corn and peas (goes better with seafood).The pasta seafood dish ,the seafood was overwhelmed by the pasta .
Reservations for breakfast at on a Saturday during COVID, amazing! Incredible menu, great service and delicious food! Recommend! I’ll be back!
Excellent food and service. The lighting was a little bright for our taste.
Great; beat expectations; very tasty food; great selection
Terrific food and wonderful service.
My boyfriend and I’s experience was absolutely wonderful! Our server was very nice and catered to us diligently, the food was wonderful, and the upscale business casual atmosphere of the restaurant was delightful.
Found the recompense Trip advisor, lived up to it’s high marks!!
We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the breakfast. Our waitress was professional and efficient, and they did a great job with the COVID-19 restrictions.
While some dishes were delicious, it was not as consistent as I would expect from a trip advisor #1 restaurant. My $40 bone-in strip steak was over-cooked and on the smaller than expected. Salads, apps, desserts were great. Service was not fine dining, but friendly and casual.
We were both VERY surprised by all of the good reviews for this place.
Walking in the door, I couldn't tell if we were even in the restaurant to be honest. All they did was plop some tables down in an existing hotel lobby with 80's decor and called it a "bistro".
The maitre d made us wait 5 minutes to sit in spite of the fact that we were on time for our reservation, were the only customers there for a table, and half of the restaurant was empty. Strange.
The food was mediocre at best. Absolutely no flavor in either of our dishes. Olive Garden has more interesting choices than they offered.
Service was good. I hope the waitress can get a job at a better restaurant soon.
This restaurant is fabulous. The food is outstanding and the service is superior. My husband and I were visiting Traverse City for a wine and color tour and are so glad we selected Reflect Bistro for our Friday night dinner.
Best perch in Michigan. The pork chop was to die for. Excellent service. A 5 star experience
Great service from the staff. Social distancing was observed. The food was pretty good except the lobster bisque was not fresh, too salty and over-spiced with thyme. They did take it off the bill. The walleye sandwich was really good and the oysters were very fresh and tasty.
The food overall was good. One of our steaks was overcooked. Med Rare v Well Done. The ambience fails due to guests wandering through dining tables with their luggage in tow. The bar is also too close to dining tables. Loud bar customers within a few feet of our table.
menu stacked with many gourmet options... Corn beef hash was phenomenal... slow cooked for 12 hrs!
Food was very good. Enjoyed the Whitefish pate and would recommend the three fish Northern Michigan combo of Whitefish cake, Walleye, and smelts. It was delicious. Service was good as well. Get reservations early as with the virus protocols seating was limited.
Restaurant was busy with the brunch rush, and it seems a host did not show up to work. The servers went out of their way to take care of everybody and still get us in for our reservation out on the patio. Food was delicious, Libby our server was a joy and very helpful!
I have never been more pleasantly surprised by a restaurant. Tucked not far away in the lobby of the hotel (so one walks by the selection of soda pop and red bulls before being seated), almost as an afterthought, was this gem. Six of us raved about everything that came out of the kitchen. Everything. Even the salads were spot on. The worst thing we ordered was the whitefish cake, which was still perfectly good--it just wasn't remarkably special. Everything else was. My brother, a spectacularly picky judge of perch, said he'd never had any better. Our server was pleasant, competent, and attentive. The chef knows his business. I hope they can keep him here in Traverse City.
Wasn’t sure what to expect being our first time but was surprised restaurant was located right in lobby. A lot of hockey families checking in. Wasn’t a problem for us as we had a table in the corner in bar area. Other diners may have had an issue with this. Everyone’s meal was at our table was very good. Our waitress, Kate/Katie was very friendly and attentive.
The menu was very interesting and I was able to find several selections that I wanted to order. The food presentation was very good and the combinations with my pasta was very good. Service was excellent and the physical appearance was nothing like a hotel restaurant. Will go back
Food was delicious and our server was great. Brunch choices to fit everyone’s appetite!
We made a reservation for New Years eve. The place was packed. The man at the reservations desk was working hard to move some people "that had taken up residence" at the table. He finally gave up and moved some chairs with backs to a high top table for us. The server was great too. We will go back.
A wonderful small and hidden gem with amazing food.
Wonderful food and atmosphere. Will definitely return.
Hidden gem in Traverse city
They tried hard to be a real restaurant, but it is just a hotel eatery.
The Thanksgiving buffet was amazing. So many wonderful choices, it wasn't possible to try everything!
Food for Thanksgiving banquet was delicious. Service was outstanding. Tables were a bit too close together.
We come for the shrimp! This is our third year at Reflect bistro. I really can’t think of any way I would improve it. Not against families with kids but the lack of large noisy families makes the dinner much more enjoyable.
The service is very attentive and the food is creative and seasonal and excellent quality. Portions are huge (plan accordingly).
Very clean, nicely decorated interior. It was a little confusing finding the entrance, it's tucked behind the hotel through a gate. We were greeted immediately and seated (we had reservations). We brought our 3 kids (10-15) with. We enjoyed the Reuben, seafood potpie, chicken sandwich, whitefish cake, and kids burger. All the food was amazing. But due to the prices (talking about $20/plate)... I wouldn't take my family here again. It's a perfect restaurant for a date night though. Our waitress, Katy, took great care of us and very helpful with the kids. She took them on an 'ice cream outing' to pick their small cartons of Moomers ice cream for dessert. Kids thought it was awesome! My husband and I split the carrot cake. It was divine and HUGE. We ate half at the restaurant and took half home for the next day it was that big!
We had a large group. Food and service were amazing. The chef visited the table to accommodate someone who is vegan as none were listed on the menu. All dishes were fantastic and the vegan dish was very much liked and impressive as well. Will certainly return at our next visit to Traverse City.
Best breakfast in Traverse City!
Great happy hour. Wines by glass 20% off and special happy hour menu with very reasonable prices. We stayed with that menu and had the sliders (very good) and the walleye chips (good). Waitress was pleasant and efficient. Place had nice decor and a good vibe. Would definitely come back.
Food was amazing. Would definitely visit again.
Food was out of this world, I had seafood pot pie, which had loads of seafood! Highly recommend!
