    Had a wonderful lunch on the terrace. The inside was a bit noisy, with many large lunch groups. The terrace was perfect. The food was very good and generous portions. Love the fries, nice and crispy. Really enjoyable afternoon. Our server and the host were both super friendly and accommodating. Great customer service.

    We book a NYE experience and boy we experienced the worst wait at any restaurant, this restaurant takes the Gold medal! Our reservation was for 8:15; we waited until about 9 and we didn’t mind because of the ambience in the lobby that had music and it was festive. We asked for a drink and it took for ever, same for taking our dinner order. Also the staff didn’t understand their menu and had poor understanding of the drink menu. Our first course came at almost at 10. Second course at 10:30. Main course almost 11 and they run out of dessert at 11:30 and brought us whatever which it wasn’t what we ordered and they said they run out of it. We left around 11:40pm. Which it was upsetting because we wanted to ring in the NYs day at home and not the on the road. Needless to say o say it was disappointing, we left hungry and we a bad taste in our mouth with this experience.

    I was a bit disappointed with my Christmas Buffet at Art Ovation. First, the prime rib was delicious! But they made sure to give out the smallest portions and even suggested eating the chicken instead. It was apparent to me that they did not order enough prime rib for the buffet dinner. Some of the food was a bit cold and the dessert station was looking scarce when we had our reservation at 630. Although I love my sweets I didn’t even bother. The wait staff seemed limited and overwhelmed as dirty dishes sat on many of the tables for a while. I was hoping for more and it just didn’t hit the mark. I will not be going back for a buffet at Art Ovation in the future.

    We attended the Christmas Day Buffet. Because of an airline delay, we needed to change our reservation on the same day. The staff graciously worked with us to make sure we were able to enjoy a lovely dinner. The food was top notch. We highly recommend this restaurant. They deliver with quality food, beautifully prepared and expertly served.

    Food was fabulous for Christmas. Every bite was worth the price and the hotel is gorgeous. I look forward to another visit. The only complaint is drink prices are insane. If they lowered the drink prices the whole experience is 5 Star.

    Went for their Christmas brunch. Called ahead to ensure it was christmassy. There was one small tree. Asked about gluten free. Fruit plate. Toast. Cold inedible eggs for $55. Now, I never complain about not accommodating gluten free. I get it is a pain in the butt. This time I did because I was told I would be able to find food. I’m not paying $55 for fruit and eggs. And the jazz was a lovely combo of sax and piano. Loved them so much. Great lady where you could make ornaments. That was a very cool idea. Overall, though, thoroughly disappointing despite them giving me $20 coupon to return. I will go back because I love the hotel. Hopefully, a normal meal with no expectations will go better. I loved the staff. Everyone who works there is top notch. But food, ambiance and options were a complete disappointment.

    Can't beat the location, cleanliness, chic atmosphere. Early season staffing obviously an issue, but they were apologetic and sincere about their newness. Decent menu, no mysteries. good selection, prices reasonable. Enjoyed the urban feel with the car and foot traffic, yet fully protected inside a glass wall. Drink, dinner, and tip for two under $100. Not bad deal.

    We went for the Thanksgiving buffet, which was quite innovative. Great stuffing recipe, which I would love to have ( featuring cranberries and yams, I believe), and excellent roast veggies. The turkey was done perfectly. Too bad there was no chocolate for dessert, but I wasn't all that interested in dessert after the wonderful main part of the buffet. The staff were awesome, especially manager Dylan who went above and beyond to meet our needs. We'll be back.

    What a great location. Had a lovely experience for dinner with my wife recently at The Overture restaurant with in the Art Ovation Hotel. The Host Danica was very friendly and greeted us with a big smile. We got a lovely window seat, comfortable seats and lite up with a candle. Our server Saran was very professional and friendly and did a great job. I had the Salmon which was delicious and my wife had a salad. The manager on duty Dylan came over and checked in with us a couple of times to make sure everything was ok which we enjoyed. It was nice to meet an Australian for the first time. We loved our visit and looking forward to coming back soon.

    Consistency is key for a restaurant’s success! This meal was completely disappointing. Soup was gritty & unseasoned; no hint of carrot or coconut. No flavor of “focaccia” — toast was greasy. “Israeli” Salad was mainly red & green peppers, and red onions — no “Israeli” seasoning. Herbed Chicken Presentation was unappetizing—white chicken on white bean cassoulet. Grilled pound cake tasted of gas. Berries not well seasoned. Did not enjoy any of the food! The price was steep for dinner with no wine. Was overcharged for Carmel Road Chardonnay, which I enjoy. On the wine list $10, but on the check charged $16. However, when the oversight was pointed out, the staff immediately adjusted the check. The previous Art dinner was stupendous! And I sang the praises of the chef. However, this dinner was a great disappointment. Consistency is the hallmark of a restaurant worthy of recommendation. However, must say your “Triple Grind” hamburger is consistently excellent. And I constantly recommend it.
