    I celebrated my birthday here with a group of friends and family and we all had a great time. The waitresses were very accomdating and attentive. The waitresses made sure we never ran out of refills and that every order was correctly placed, especially with the large group of guests I had. They allowed me to have my birthday dinner in the glass room in the restaurant which was very nice. The food was very good. I like that they waive valet parking if you eat at this restaurant. I highly recommend dining at this restaurant, you will get great service and food!

    Sustenio is a lovely oasis in the midst of the beautiful Elian Hotel. Convenient and comfortable, we always eat here when we stay at the hotel. Service is low-key ,courteous, and efficient. Unfortunately, this last time, the steaks were uncommonly tough although flavorful. The manager came to apologize personally, which is the hallmark of a well-run establishment. She was gracious and offered a delicious cheesecake for 2 as compensation. We will return, of course, because the waitstaff is excellent.

    There was a holiday standard gratuity of 25%, which I had no problem with, other than it was not mentioned prior to the bill arrival. The problem was that the 25% was taken on the basis of the entire bill, meaning I was forced to tip 25% on the tax for a $350 tab! Worse than that, when I spoke with the Manager, she refused to even acknowledge my concern and would not offer any assistance.

    Thanksgiving dinner was poor considering the high price. Some items were running out and meats were served in watery containers. Very limited selections of food items. Deserts were uninspired, pies looked to be purchased from the local grocery store. One dessert was inedible by everyone at the table due to excessive seasoning. Won’t go back.

    Based on previous reviews I expected a nicer experience. I had a 630 reservation, arrived on time and there was no host available for at least 10 minutes. When I was greeted, my table wasn’t ready/set so they had to spend another five minutes getting it set. Menu options were limited and uninspired for the price point. Our campfire queso came out lukewarm warm and my Caesar salad was forgettable with too Much cheese and store bought croutons. Steak was ok, ordered it Rare+, came out Medium Rare and was never asked if the temperature was ok. Ambience was meh, loud kitchen interrupted our conversation multiple times and for a $200 meal, the overall experience was underwhelming. I def felt like I was in a hotel restaurant instead of a fine dining establishment. Just felt more like a place for brunch than a nice dinner. Wouldn’t recommend and likely won’t return due to the lack of value vs price point/quality.

    Clean and bright environment. Limited, basic menu. Nice staff, but our waitress was limited on her knowledge of the menu and it’s descriptions. Everything was “good“ or “popular“ but no information beyond that.  can’t say I’d be eager to go back there again, even though the food was delicious. There just wasn’t anything that “wows.”

    My friend and I love going to Sustenio. We sit in the bar so that we can enjoy a great meal and play cards afterwards. The staff are always super friendly and attentive. We had the Crispy Brussel Sprouts to start off then had the Shrimp and Grits and an Autmn Salad with blackened Chicken. No photos taken but the food is always consistently delicious!

    We were disappointed with our Mother’s Day Brunch. There was a wide selection. The omelet was okay, but most of the main entrees were pretty bad. The prime rib was very overcooked and dry, and the salmon was fishy tasting. The best part was the salad. When the bill came, we were surprised to see there was already a 25% gratuity added for our party of five. This surprised me because it was a buffet. The servers only had to refill our water and take stone plates off the table. They had trouble getting the mimosa order correct. Overall, we were disappointed with the meal and the total price.

    The food was ok, nothing was impeccable or outstanding. The best part of the meal was the Caesar salad. The pizza was underdone and the steak was cooked inconsistently, along with the sides. We were not greeted at the host stand although we stood there for a few minutes. I don’t think we would return to this restaurant.

    The staff and service at the restaurant were excellent and accommodating. The Eilan hotel staff however were horrible. After our dinner, we took (non-flash) pictures on our phone after our dinner and was treated very rudely. Told we couldn’t take pictures by the empty staircase and the guy who claimed to be the hotel manager was threatening and blocked us from taking a group picture. Needless to say, I will not consider staying at Eilan Hotel at all!

    Staff was great, manager was great. Ambience was beautiful, quiet, intimate for a lovely birthday dinner. Menu was awesome. I would like to try the ribeye chicharron -they were not available…but all meal options were great. Beverages not so much… I think they need work. Sparkling wine doesn’t go in a sangria. And too much banana in the rum bunch. Otherwise we had a great time and will return.

    Understaffed. didn’t have menus available. didn’t have steak knives available. Ordered a medium steak and when it came out it was Bleu. When they took my steak back I was told they would make a new one instead they brought the same steak out with a charred exterior and still Bleu. I will never go back and definitely not pay $80 again for a steak that was burnt and still mooing. Didn’t get one refill unless I got up and asked for it. The table cloth still had stains on it from before my reservation. My whole meal was $230 and I would’ve been better off at Texas Roadhouse.

    Expected a dining experience at a nice hotel to be elevated. It was none of this. Apart from the kind server, I did not enjoy this restaurant. Chopped salad looked like regular salad that had been tossed in the dressing with sliced tomatoes and chives. Salmon over cooked and dry, chicken cutlet with pasta was bland. Ordered chocolate cake for dessert but sent back- reminded me of those vending machine brownies. Will not return and do not recommend unless something changes.

    We ended up sitting in the bar area because we wanted to play cards afterwards. The bartender who served us was amazing. She was super friendly and responsive. We had the brussel sprouts as an appetizer and they were to die for! For dinner we had the wedge salad, shrimp and grits and a caprese pizza. Everything was delicious!
