The restaurant seemed like it would be more high end but the food was below average and nothing really struck me with a desire to want to eat here again.

The bar area was very busy, which is typical for a hotel restaurant. There appeared to be one server for the rest of the restaurant so service was pretty slow. I had the bison meatloaf which was good but my husband was less than impressed with his steak. There was nothing bad about it but nothing really blew us away.

Our server was very friendly and attentive, and valet parking at the connected hotel was free, but that didn’t change our feeling that we’d just paid fine dining prices for a hotel restaurant-level experience. The rustic ambience shown on their website ends at the bar—the dining room looks like a lobby restaurant, complete with self-serve cereal dispensers still sitting out from breakfast. Food is described as “locally-inspired,” but apart from some mountain-y names, quality and prep scream Sysco. It’s not bad, it’s just not good. With so many better options at the same price point within a couple of blocks, you can do better.

There were very few people at the restaurant when we went, but our order for 3 people took over 45 minutes to get to us. The staff was apologetic and discounted half our bill, but we arrived at 5:45pm to have dinner before a 7:30pm show and we had to rush through our meal and jog to the theater.

Our dinner at Territory was a major disappointment. They were clearly short-staffed. There was no host or greeter. The busboy clearing the tables was telling arriving guests just to sit wherever! The bartender, at the entrance, seemed distracted. There was only one waiter serving the entire restaurant. The food was fair, at best. There was a large convention group in town, and the restaurant seemed totally unprepared.

The restaurant was completely empty except for us when we got there, so it was nice and quiet and we could take our time with our lunch. My burger and fries were delicious and cooked perfectly, and my friend's fish and chips were also very good. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and thought it was a great pre-theater lunch option.

We came here for a business dinner. Had to wait 30 mins for drinks to be delivered and it was not busy. After eating some appetizers the waiter let us know that the three most popular dishes on the menu were sold out. Eg beef, chicken, fish. They should have told us this when they took our drink order. We all left and struggled to find another restaurant for dinner. Terrible ambiance and lighting as well. Do not eat here.

We arrived at Territory Kitchen and were happily surprised that they offer free valet parking! This was the single good thing about our evening. When going over the drink menu, the waitress informed us that "The head chef just walked out" that week so none of the liquors needed for those drinks were available. So no specialty cocktails. She also told us they were already out of two of their main entrees. This is already a limited menu, so this was very disappointing. The place was empty- I think there were two other tables taken- and yet it took 20 minutes for her to come back over with waters and to take our drink order. My Manhatten was water with a slight burbon flavor. The food was all bland, the fries were cold- it was all just very very disappointing.

We had dinner because we were going to the Convention Center and it is really close. The pour of wine for $12 wasn't much. I would expect this type of place to have a glass of wine under $10. It is a hotel restaurant. It felt alittle cookie cutter...our server was new, so she did her best. I had to ask for condiments for my burger; she didn't offer. She wasn't really familiar with the menu, which she should have been. I had the burger and my boyfriend had the gyro. It was all fine. But nothing great. For a real food experience, I would go elsewhere.

We picked this spot for its location, and were pleasantly surprised by the food! Interesting takes on some classic, great flavors. Reasonably priced. We did have a large party next to us that was pretty boisterous and loud, but we were still able to converse easily. Our only issue was slightly slow service which made us feel a little rushed in getting to the theater. Would definitely return!

We had a reservation for dinner on New Years Eve. We arrived and it took over 5 minutes to be greeted by the hostess. Several employees walked by us and said nothing. Once the hostess greeted us, she told us it would be a few min while she set up the table. This took close to 10 minutes. She was not friendly and barely spoke to us. It appeared that the employees had no idea what was going on. With few patrons, the place seemed chaotic. Our server was polite, but we still had to get his attention several times when we needed something. Our drinks took a very long time and the water was never refilled. Several of us ordered burgers and the meat seemed like preformed frozen patties. It was edible, but not good. I think the restaurant just opened, but we will not give it a second chance.

The short ribs didn't taste like beef or pork, so not sure what it was. The ribs were very tough. Rib meat should be falling of the bone and crazy tasty when correctly prepared. It was neither.

I made reservations on Open Table for 7:45 on Christmas. When we arrived we were told that they were closed and wouldn’t be seated. When I said I booked on Open Table he said he had just turned way someone else. He also said we should have used a different app. It was very disappointing after we had driven down there, parked, and walked two blocks in the cold only to be turned away.

Friends and I recently dined here as we wanted something easy pre-theatre. Everything else was booked full and I was able to reserve a table for 4 last minute. At 5pm it was pretty empty, and the staff pampered us. We ordered small plates & drinks, enjoyed a quiet atmosphere and arrived at the show unhurried. Exactly what we wanted!

Nice decor/design, great service, but unfortunately disappointing food quality.
The mushroom barley soup seems to have been an afterthought. For $7 a cup it had the same red vegetable base as the Manhattan clam chowder with a few mushroom slices and 1 or 2 pieces of barley added. The buffalo burger was priced at $14 but was served with an impressively thin patty of meat.
The $11 chicken gryo was a pita pocket with grilled chicken pieces that were quite dry and had little seasoning. Could not appreciate the citrus marinade advertised.
We won't be going back.

While my Salmon BLT was good, my sweet potato fries were undercooked. The poutine had at most 2 tablespoons of shredded beef on it. It was ok, but the gravy was very good. We asked for a cheese quesadilla for a child and it came with a lot of other items inside besides the cheese. Oh well we could have sent it back but decided it wasn't worth it. Our waiter wanted to be somewhere else..........

The service was quite good but the food was mediocre at best. I ordered the fish and chips and my wife ordered the grilled chicken gyro. The fish was actually pretty good, particularly with the lemon tartar sauce. The fries were mediocre; I understand there are lots of kinds of fries but the ones served here were relatively soft and thin while I prefer something more crispy. The chicken gyro my wife ordered was just plain terrible. The chicken was bland, as though it hadn't been seasoned or brined or anything prior to being cooked. Worst of all, the grill marks on the chicken were burned into the meat so badly that the charred portions of the meat were incredibly bitter; I insisted on tasting it when she complained and I could smell the char before I even brought the piece of chicken to my mouth. She had to eat around or cut off the burned portions.

This could be a nice enough place to hang out for a drink; the atmosphere is nice and the service was very friendly and attentive, but I wouldn't eat here again. We were visiting from out of state and the food everywhere else we ate was so much better than here.
