The service was great, and the setting was nice, but the food is overpriced and not really noteworthy. The menu is a little limited and being a farm-to-table restaurant I had hoped they would have an off-menu offering but no such luck. I had the wagyu strip (which looked oddly like a filet) and it was fine but corn purée under it was delicious! My husband had the bisque which he said was pretty good but he said his red snapper a little dry. Our kids has the chicken and steak. Steak was fine but the chicken was pretty dry. Our group ordered a few desserts…peach dessert was just not very good, white cake dessert was ok, and the chocolate dessert was also ok. If you’re staying at the Hyatt it’s a nice change of pace from the sports bar food and the pool-side food but I wouldn’t make a social trip here, to eat, if I were not staying at the hotel.

Very happy to arrive and have our requested table attributed to us. My started with a bottle of Dom Pe, my husband took the sea scallops and then very well cooked steak. I picked the beets and the Wagyu. The meat was absolutely perfect. The beets delicious. We took a bottle of red wine to elevate the meat. We obviously left with our bottles. Will was very friendly and took good care of us. The only few things that I'd say is that the glassware could be a better quality, especially for the champagne, it feels a bit cheap to drink such a great champagne in a very low quality glass. Too much light in the restaurant for the last evening ambience. At the end, after signing the bill and add the tip, we've been offered a glass of bourbon, my understanding was that it was offered by the house since we were the last clients, not that our bill will be amended, small details, but use to this kind of practice in some restaurants around the world. We might probably be back for the food, but most likely not for the atmosphere. (Be indulgent english isn't my first language)

If you are a POGM then you do not want to come here. It’s not worth the blatantly discriminatory practices and hostility. You’d think at a four star resort the money = money all the same but there’s an almost palpable tension — not only among the white guests who are sharing “their” vacation space with PoC but also from the staff who seem perturbed to have to serve us.

Hyatt has and will always continue to be a welcoming community and we are sorry we were not able to share that welcoming atmosphere during your visit. We always appreciate feedback though, as it is a way to show us what areas need work. We hope you will come by and see us in the future as all perspectives are appreciated. Thanks, Stories

The food was good, just not out kind of place. Super expensive for good food but a very small amount. I enjoyed a “banana size” eggplant for about $30. The dessert was probably a 2x2” slice (maybe 1.5x1.5) and we had decided to split dessert. The small beet salad was very good.

When we got there the restaurant was closed. They’d only been open for 2 days at Christmas and someone forgot to take down availability on OpenTable. We didn’t know. When we arrived we were told this restaurant was not open but we could be seated in the bustling casual area. Not what we expected when making the reservation! The manager was gracious to admit a mistake had been made and found a spot, although not ideal, was the best he could do. This was appreciated. Service was excellent. We thank them for working to make this horrible discovery come to a decent conclusion.

On a birthday we received a card from the staff and glasses of campaign at no cost. Nice touch! We shared some mushrooms and steak fries and ordered ribeye steaks. Both steaks were cooked to a perfect medium per my request. The cost is on the upper end but we knew that prior to making the reservation. We enjoyed the dinner very much.

My husband rated his beef tenderloin oscar five-star delicious. However, my seared scallop dish was lackluster and flavorless with everything but the scallops ill-prepared. It was an extreme disappointment. The noise level made it difficult to have a conversation with my husband, and as a result, the atmosphere was far from a fine dining experience. Recommendations from me would come with extreme reservations.

They have all the right stuff to make this a great dinning room. The problems.. My wife's filet was over cooked and so she sent it back, but the server said something about the chef being on break, or on down time? I still don't know what that meant. So they cooked her another smaller filet, probably a better cut but was still over done. You could see how one side cooked way longer than the other. My lamb was a tad over cooked..I'll take the blame for that as maybe I wasn't clear about how I like it. Or, more likely, maybe the server misunderstood our temperature preferences for both the beef and the lamb. The creamed spinach side, I believe, was a frozen product and jus horrible. Highlights.. The Wedge Salad was very good. The brie appetizer was acceptable. The wine list was pretty ok. We may have the opportunity to go back and try it agin as it is pretty much the only game in town or hotel as it were. I'm just hoping they figure some things out.

Oysters low quality and warm. Same with stone crab. Shrimp good. We were last seating and they ran out of some of desserts and champagne. Kids did love chocolate fountain. Turkey was just hunked off bone...not a nice presentation. Green beans weren’t al dente...they were raw. One person was trying to keep up with salad table and it was impossible. They ran out of plates for a while. Out of some dressing and some toppings. Our server was inexperienced and needed guidance. It felt like Hyatt was in over their heads trying to serve so many people so many things. We wish we had eaten in one of the other restaurants which we found to be excellent.

Much this year was the same... but noticeably different. Every year is cookie cutter. Same layout, same decorations etc. Staff is BEYOND AMAZING! The hostess Zara (it has been 2 days so maybe I am mixing up names now???) was so welcoming and friendly. Our waitress Yoly was just so lovely, pleasant and extremely attentive. She deserved an extra tip above the 25% built in charge. The meat and sides were pretty darn good. There were a couple of things they need to improve though. I mention this because it you are going to charge each patron $85/plate ($68+ 25% gratuity) .... it should be 5 star quality. 1) need more veggie options to go with meal. There was basically salad and green beans. 2) dinner rolls sitting in baskets at the serving line were cold to the touch. 3) The servers at the meat table were very nice but did not follow customers request. 3 different people in my party requested certain cuts and it was not followed the first time. So I went over there and took care of business. They were very accommodating but I told them they were just wasting meat because when someone requests breasts and you throw chunks of dark meat on their plate... that is not ok 4) Y'all desperately need to do better with the desserts. The EXACT same stuff last year was there this year. Which meant to me they were bought from elsewhere and dressed up. Very pretty but not that good. Not only were the strawberries not ripe at the chocolate fountain, they were green. The bite size pumpkin cake was dry. The tart shell to the lemon meringue was hard like it was straight out of the package. Your desserts need to meet the quality of your hot food buffet. Sometimes less is more.

This meal cost 3 days of income for us. So this may be why our review is lacking. For your average client, it is probably a day in the park. However, here are a few suggestions to make this a better experience for our family. We were at one of the later seattings and the buffets were picked over and cluttered, the salad bar was good but was near empty. I recommend having the table set with enough flatware: at least 3 forks; salad, main course and dessert; real coffee cups at the table or have server bring you coffee for the dessert, water and tea glasses. Our center piece was filled with trash, so took away from the experience. Kids were running around everywhere, not a problem if you have kids, but very distracting for those of us who were childless. Perhaps shift the seating, reserve 1/2 the dining area for kids, the other 1/2 without. The smoked turkey and prime-were exceptional, you could cut them with a fork. The potatoes and stuffing were cold and difficult to get off the serving spoon, they tasted OK. Desserts were plentiful and had a great variety. I will say the live music was great and added to the atmosphere.

We had 6 adults and 3 children. 2 of the children under 6, so they ate for free. Children’s buffet just right for them. A little pricey for a 7 year old. I think Thanksgiving buffet for child over 6 should be same as price at Firewheel. Overall selection great for everybody! Probably only 4 of the 6 adults ate $68 worth of food

The dessert s need to be monitored better. After an hour or two it looked like they were ravaged by starving people. Totally mess.
