    The service and atmosphere was good and the food tasted okay, but we’re not able to give a higher rating until the very basic menu is more inspired.

    The Brasserie French Toast was so delicious. The bread they used is different from other french toast I’ve tasted. I will come back here to try their other brunch menus.

    We were staying at the hotel. The menus online didn’t designate a certain time of day for each menu. We thought we were going to have brunch menu options but it was only breakfast until 10 AM. The hostess put a screaming child in the front room where there were only adults sitting. The back room already had children in it. Service was subpar.

    Restaurant has a very lovely ambiance. The steak tartare lacked seasoning and had imprecise knife cuts. The yolk shaving did not add to the dish, and I would rather have had an actual egg yolk. However, the raspberry sherbet was very good.

    The restaurant didn't live up to my expectations. I was hoping for a more authentic French Brasserie. The menu was limited and didn't offer the dishes I would expect. The food was OK but not memorable, especially for the price.

    Cold steak, non attentive service and very pricey. We don’t mind spending a lot of money on dining if the food quality is exceptional in the service as well, but they both fell short in this instance we would never return. We didn’t complain, but it was very upsetting to spend that much money literally on a cold steak and french fries and some French onion soup. It is a beautiful restaurant, and a nice location, and I am certain that they are sometimes on point. But this was definitely not one of those nights.

    The host was very friendly as was the manager. I don't think the waiter wanted to be there. The food was mediocre not worthy of the pricing, for sure. Not one thing I ate did I say "This is good" My steak was burnt which we weren't charged for but I still wouldn't recommend this place. The ambience was nice.

    The place is beautiful and we were given a table in the far end room by the windows where it was quiet and we had a nice view. The food was tasty and the presentation was nice but I expected more because of the whole aura of pretentiousness and high prices. The place was a strange mix between luscious, luxury decor and people walking around in flip flops and torn jean shorts! The server was matching the place perfectly by being pretentious (he literally rolled his eyes at me once) and at the same time had no idea about etiquette! He was leaning up the back of the chair talking with my daughter about an order for couple of minutes before he realized my friend has been patiently standing and waiting to sit on that same chair! Overall 3 stars experience, 4 for the ambience and comfort!

My friend and I were a bit underdressed but nonetheless, amazing experience! James, our waiter was absolutely amazing as well! He helped me out with selecting a wine that I very much enjoyed! The food !! The FOOD !! Simply amazing !! Just this whole experience was over the top! I highly recommend coming here! And of course, I will be back to dine here! 💗
