The setting was quiet but the food was average. My party of 4 was just the 2nd table with people in the restaurant and the food took forever to get out. it was average food and not worth a 2nd visit.

The food was just okay for the price. The service was slow, I think there were only 2 servers for the entire restaurant. The kitchen was very slow, I ordered my omelette at the same time I ordered my coffee and it came after everyone else at the table was finished with breakfast (they ate from the buffet). The hostess filled our water glasses right before we asked for the check. We ate here because it was included in our hotel stay. Next time we’ll eat off property.

The atmosphere was great and the staff was amazing! The food was mediocre. We ordered a hummus plate as an appetizer and they put old, bendable, and rubbery celery and other veggies on it. The restaurant is trying a little too hard to be high-end. I recommend they revamp the entire menu to be more casual and ensure they only sell food that tastes great and the biggest problem, to make sure the food is fresh.

Wonderful food, great service, and with-it. Easy location to get to. Located in basement of the Marriot University Park hotel. In spite of a very late night arrival mere minutes before the grill closed the food was impeccable. A more than capaple staff oversaw the bar with specific recomendations for signature beers to accompany the menu choices. We felt attended to but not smothered. The descriptions of the menu items facilitated decisions and the follow up on the choices we had selected was also well timed. They have a number of starters, entrees and sandwiches, but you don't end up reading a book with too many choices. The assistance with our leftovers was also gratefully appreciated. We're going back and recommending this restaurant to other locals.

I have never left a bad review for any restaurant in my life. I have also never not left a tip (even with bad service) until tonight. The service at this place was absolutely terrible. Fortunately, they brought the wine we ordered within a reasonable time. But that was it. We sat around for an hour and a half without the waiter coming back to our table. There were people being seated, then leaving because they simply weren’t being waited on. It wasn’t busy at all. There were approximately 14 people in the entire restaurant and I saw at least 4 people who were wait staff walking around. I finally walked up to the guy and asked if he would just ring us up for the wine and he said “yeah sorry, my kitchen is crazy tonight”. The place wasn’t even close to half full. Then another waitress asked me if we would like to talk to the manager. I saw the guy who was most likely the manager (shirt and tie different than the wait staff). Why would I want to talk with him? He was obviously part of the problem. I wasn’t out with my wife on a Saturday night to explain to the manager how bad of a job he was doing. Poorly managed to say the least. I could go on, but need the aggravation to end. Overall, i would be firing many if I had anything to do with that show. Never again.

Thistle and Thyme is a charming restuarant tucked back in the corner of a Marriott. The ambience is quiet, charming, and relaxing. The service is friendly. The food looks and tastes great. I had a caprese sandwich and I wasn't another one. I really enjoyed it.
