Explained all they want is the hamburger with bacon and cheese. They received loaded burgers without bacon and cheese. For fear of sending it back, they ate it. As far as service, we were all eating our crushed ice because the bartender was pulling double duty. Just expected more from a place like that.

It was centrally located for everyone who was visiting the area for meetings. The food was great from the oyster appetizers to the high quality steaks. The highlight of the meal was the excellent service we were provided by Domenica and Robby. Brett, a member of the hotel food management team even came by to check on our group. We had a great dinner and look forward to returning and using their facilities again.

The chef did a first rate job, and the value was excellent. Some at our table opted for the shrimp which was generous and other opted for the beet salad, also very good. We all got the Tri-tip which as perfectly prepared on a bed of polenta. Yum! The wait staff were obviously still learning how to serve in a first class restaurant, but did a very good job -- friendly and efficient. We did not do the wine flight -- it seemed a little expensive but instead opted for an excellent Napa cabernet at a very fair price. The only drawback was the dining room itself. It seemed more like a motel coffee shop (obviously its prior incarnation) than a fine restaurant. It is open to the lobby which was very noisy do to a big convention (this is a prime convention hotel). We would not hesitate to come back.

Staff tried hard, but server had to look at notes about the menu, couldn't properly pronounce the wines and their 'western' attire was what I would expect in a small country diner, not a $200 dinner. The ambiance was greatly altered by the VERY noise bar, which made he hard to have a conversation at your table.
