We had a great evening celebrating our anniversary. The menu had ample selections ... I am not a fan of shrimp and grits, but these werw as tasty as they sounded. We took our time and never felt pressured. Our waitress (Valerie) was the best, attentive, knowledgeable, friendly and great to talk to.

Had an amazing Valentine's dinner here. The holiday-specific menu that evening was on point. Had the delicious mussels for an app, and the beef cheek with the lobster tail was maybe one of the best meals we've ever had. That's only the beginning. The entire staff was fantastic and accomodating. We felt like we were regulars there, even though it was our first time. Glad I was able to get a last-minute reservation. We'll be back very soon.

We came for happy hour but they didn’t have happy hour prices due to valentines weekend. This was not communicated when I made the reservation. Also the server was very rude and it felt like we were a burden on him. Very upset with our first experience as we were looking forward to trying out this spot.

A hip spot, but I’m staying in the hotel and I expect better food at a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel. Had one meal. Very unimpressed. Will walk in cold temps to get better food.

Very nice outside meal. Excellent service, champagne was a deal and the Chicken Soup was super flavorful.

Shrimp grits needed a little more zing and the pasta dish was really nice

We ordered the steak and eggs and the apple cinnamon French toast and they were INCREDIBLE. The apple butter on the French toast tasted homemade and the whipped topping had to be fresh! I hardly used syrup. The French toast was already oozing with hot cooked apples. So so so so good

This occasion was our first for brunch. We needed two tables separated owing to coronavirus but adjacent to each other. Staff accommodated us nicely. However, ambient noise level from a nearby table of eight prevented us from table-to-table conversation. The food was excellent.

The bartender had to acknowledge our presence to seat us. The hostess ignored us when we arrived. The waitress didn’t come to our table to take our drink order for over 15 minutes while the restaurant was empty. Overall the food was very good so was our drinks. The bartender service was the best during our visit.

I am used to seeing this place packed and full of energy. This is the first visit since Covid-19 has hit and made this experience less satisfying than all previous visits. The bar was closed completely and due to spacing rules we were basically sat out in the lobby instead of the main part of the restaurant. The bright spot was our host who gladly added a few unexpected guests to our table. Our server was trying hard to make everything perfect, probably realizing that we weren't too happy with our location in the restaurant. I still recommend this place for the great location inside the Elizabeth Hotel, the great selection of wine and the attitude and attention of the servers.

Food was delicious. Steaks were undercooked. Had to send one back. It took 30 minutes and was still under cooked. Client ordered medium rare, came out rare. Sent back, and still very rare and cold in part of the middle. My medium well was more medium rare.

I ordered the steak, my wife the lamb pasta. The steak was sub par, I would not order it again, tough. My wife felt the same way about the lamb pasta she got. It was fun to go see for the first time being a foco native, but there are much better options for cost.

Honestly I expected better food and was disappointed.

The menu is somewhat abbreviated in deference to the coronavirus so there no longer is a daily special. A few weeks ago I ordered the lamb orecchiette for takeout. It was wonderful and a generous serving provided two meals for us. Because there were few diners in the restaurant, I booked in-person dining this past week. It seemed that everyone else had the same plan.

The house Spanish white wine was good. Our entree choices provided mixed reactions. The chicken schnitzel was slightly bitter. The brick chicken was delicious. But why do American chefs think people like blanched green beans (haricot vert)? I like mine cooked until just tender, not raw. Fortunately, we finished well with chocolate hazelnut crunch cake, which is very good.
