When you enter the lobby of the hotel you would never think that this restaurant would be good. You will soon be proven wrong! The food was fantastic!! As a foodie the whitefish pate app and fried perch entree were fantastic! They have a variety of local beer and wine, and we were constantly impressed as each course came out.
My dish was so salty could eat it and my husband’s fish was over cooked.
Everything was great…. Portions are huge!!
The food was great and there were lots of great options on the menu. It is a hotel restaurant but the food is great.
Knowledgeable server, Diahn, was wonderful. Talked us
through the menu and options. We ordered 1/2 salads which were still huge! Should have split the halves. For our cocktails, she recommended Traverse City spirits, which were really good. Chef Gary’s meals were prepared with so much care. My husband steak was perfect! I ordered the seafood pot pie. I can see why it’s a best seller. Our meals were picture worthy in their presentations, too! Can’t say enough good things about out experience at Reflect Bistro. I highly recommend this restaurant, and look forward to coming back here the next time we visit Traverse City!
We went to Reflect for a dinner date and it was outstanding! This is the second time we’ve gone and the food is the best in town - it’s creative, fresh and plated beautifully! The whitefish pâté is one of our favorites and the menu is always on point - excellent food and never boring, you couldn’t get better at a restaurant that has a view of the bay - this is the spot! Our waitress was knowledgeable and the hospitality is wonderful here. Thanks for another great night and we can’t wait to go back.
Our experience at Reflect Bistro was amazing. The food was out of this world. Our server, Libby, was attentive and kind. Will definitely be back!
Great happy hour menu (4-7). Decent wine selection and great variety on the main menu. Good portions and great servers.
Great meal, super service. So glad we could get a reservation online. Would certainly recommend. Also, good glass of dry Riesling, Chateau St Mischelle
Delicious food. Kind and considerate server!
We enjoyed a delicious meal and our server Jody was terrific!
The menu is creative, with several tempting options! We ordered and shared 2 of what we thought looked most interesting and we’re delighted with both ( s seafood papardelle and s potato-encrusted halibut) the wine list was extensive and interesting as well. We watched delicious looking appetizers arrive in big servings to our neighbor s’ tables. The only problems were that AC was too cold and the room was too loud.
Our appetizer and dinner was fantastic. Our waitress gave us excellent suggestions, and portion sizes are very large.
The food was fantastic. Surprisingly very good considering it was inside the Cambria Hotel. Best fish we have had in a long time. Service was excellent. Price was very fair for the high quality. Definitely will return.
The presentation and quality of the food here is over the top! The onion soup was made with Vidalia onions, therefore a bit sweeter. Delicious! The seafood pappardelle dish was full of scallops, lobster and shrimp, then topped with crunchy calamari. All portions were quite large; we all ended up bringing home leftovers. And don’t forget to have dessert! (But share it). Both the carrot cake and the chocolate cake were 4 layers high, plenty to share and then some! All in all, a terrific meal, made even better by our terrific server, Jodi.
Everything was great except[t the scallops were sandy/grainey
Had a wonderful experience. Food was great, service was fabulous.
Overall just ok, located in the lobby of a hotel the overall ambiance is what you would expect from being located off the lobby of a hotel. Waitstaff was accommodating and attentive, appetizer of smoked whitefish pate as nice, served with warm bread and pickled veggies, not your typical TC smoked whitefish, this one was chunks of fish intermingled with cream cheese. My wife’s seafood pappardelle was ok, pasta was al dente but only two shrimps, one scallop and no lobster. The dish was topped with fried calamari but the breading was very salty. I had the Great Lakes Four with side salad, salad was very nice, the entree was warm at best. The two pieces of perch suffered from the same salty coating as the calamari, the smoked whitefish cake had a nice Smokey flavor, the walleye was moist but tepid in temperature.
Food was good, selection was good, service great. Our waitress Jamie was super nice and took very good care of us. The resturant is kinda open to the hotel lobby which I'm not a fan of.
Went for hubby’s birthday. I got the seafood pastry and it was awesome. Disappointed they were out of the cherry bread pudding as it’s my hubby’s favorite. Tried a different dessert and it was awesome also
Dinner was excellent! Server was very nice and knowledgeable. Restaurant is in a lobby so a little noises but the food made it not matter
The tables are a little too close to each other but they have great food and service.
Food was okay. Wine prices way too high. A bottle of wine that cost them $14 - they charge $13 for a 5 oz. glass. We do not understand why this place is rated so highly? Won't go back.
Great place with excellent food and very good service. The portions are big so keep that in mind when ordering. The bartender did a nice job on drinks we ordered.
Our server was terrific! Food is in plentiful portions. Lobster pot pie was delicious!
Had HH and the food was much more tasty and larger portions than we imagined! Drinks were solid pours and staff was efficient
The ambiance does not fit the up north experience, however the food is excellent.
We went because of the great reviews. Our original table was right next to the noisy bar and lobby, but we insisted on moving. The waiter was excellent. The food was nothing spectacular and the lobster ravioli were awful. They didn’t charge me for them.The filet was very good and the soup was also very good but they are very fond of making mountains of rings and strings on the food. Supposed to be great presentation I guess, but I was unimpressed. The wine glasses are ridiculously huge ( not so the servings and a glass of wine is $10-12). Enjoyed the smoked whitefish app.
we had steamed shrimp which was served ward. Surprised but impressed with a sauce better than shrimp cocktail sauce. chrispy chicken was very good.
Delicious halibut and salads. The seafood pasta was a bit rich but had lots of tasty seafood. Would return.
nice outdoor seating area. excellent food and varied menu.
Very good menu the seafood pot pie was amazing!
The food and service were good, but the tables were too close to each other, given we are still need to be mindful of the pandemic, and for some sense of privacy and space in any case. It was noisy during Happy Hour.
Food was very good and large portions. Happy Hour menu was a plus. Host and getting seated was a problem. Our waitress was a pleasure!
Interesting location in the lobby of the hotel. Had some great food and the service in the restaurant and in the lobby for a drink was very good. Friendly staff.
The food at Reflect is consistently excellent and creative. Our server, Luke, was also excellent. His honest appraisal of a local winess.was very helpful distinguishing between a vineyard’s whites versus red.
The food and service was amazing the only drawback was it it was in the lobby of the hotel and we thought that was a little strange. But would highly recommend and would go back.
I ate here a few years ago and was mildly impressed so I decided to give it another try. The ambiance inside a mid price hotel is somewhat lacking and this time the food was a disappointment. I had the caesar with a filet on the side and it was decent but my three guests said their food was mediocre at best.
