    The food is great. The service was awful. I had an 11am brunch reservation for 2. We waited until 11:05 at the hostess stand before anyone at all appeared to greet or seat us. At 11:20, the waitress finally came to ask us if we'd like to start with any drinks. 15 minutes is a long time to stare at a menu simply for drinks. We ordered everything at that time. At 11:50 we finally got our food (french toast, side of sausage links, burger+fries). I can understand if you're short staffed.. but take the time to explain upfront and people will be much less antsy. It's really that simple. Acknowledge people have been waiting.. that's it. The food is great, but service was simply not. I doubt I go back.

    They brunch was GREAT! I had dinner carried out the PREVIOUS EVENING. To make sure I wanted to celebrate a birthday the next day. I was very disappointed in the quality for the price paid. So, I probably won't have dinner at the Lobby Bar again. Will give the Rooftop dinner a try this coming Friday.

    We waited too long for the food--over 1 hour after ordering. And, unfortunately I have to say it was horrible. I had the duck which I did not even recognize. Nothing seemed right. Even the menu was confusing. The waiter was gracious and not his fault about the food.

    Beautiful lobby and ambience! Service was a bit slow even though we were one of four parties present - but our server and hostess were both attentive and extremely nice. The food was delicious! We had their Saturday morning brunch. The French toast and side of their potatoes were amazing! Full of flavor and a very hearty portion!

    We came here for an after dinner cocktail and the service and ambiance were perfect. We could easily hear each other talk and felt spread out enough that we had a semblance of privacy. The hostess went above and beyond and asked the manager if we could see the rooftop bar and were then given a private tour (it hasn't opened for the season yet)! Seeing Quirk's famous rooftop bar was one the things the bride-to-be with us really wanted to do and they made it happen for her. The nighttime views of the cityscape were absolutely stunning and we can't wait to go back!

    Our reservation on valentine's Day was at 8:45. At 8:44 I got a call from the restaurant asking if I was still coming. I told her I was in the restaurant at the hostess stand. Then when she seated me she said I was lucky because they were about to cancel my reservation... when she said this it was 8:46. Our waiter gave us a Valentines day menu and we were told that's all they were serving. 3 course for $55 per person. We looked at the menu prior to booking and we were not told of any Valentines day menu. My partner couldn't have any of the appetizers because he is allergic to fish and mushrooms... all of the appetizers had some sort of fish or mushrooms. They offered to take the shrimp crackers off one of the appetizers or a beet salad. So because of this we needed some time to think, but the waiter said the chef needs us to choose because the kitchen closes at 9pm, our reservation was at 8:45 mind you. The food presentation wise was nice and upscale, the taste however, was bland and hardly seasoned. I have never had a choclate tart that wasn't sweet. How do you make bland chocolate mousse!? The waiter was inpatient and rude. Even still I tipped him well because I used to be a waiter.

    Food was a tasty tapas style meal. The price of the meal does not necessarily match the quality and/or quantity of the food. Drinks were nice. You are definitely paying for for the experience and the ambience of the hotel lobby.

    We were celebrating a birthday which we noted on our reservation. The waitress greeted us with champagne to celebrate! Much better than getting a free desert. The menu was small and limited with only small plate options. We ordered 3 items to split between two people which was perfect. Great service!
