Very nice place, large and open. Was a little dirty and disheveled. could have used a good cleaning. Great location close to trains and buses, good place to meet and get a drink outside.

We stayed at this hotel this past weekend. Had dinner Friday night which wasn't bad. We just had burgers and calamari but they were both good. Service and ambience were very good. Sunday brunch was a whole different story. You have the choice of buffet at $27 a person or menu. We chose buffet and it was disappointing. Had to ask for a new coffee because it was cold on arrival, in fact all the hot food at the buffet was lukewarm at best. For $54 for two people it was a waste.

I am giving VERSA 5 stars because of the ambiance. The music is soooooooo good. The grapefruit sangria is probably the best drink I have ever had, so you must try that. We went because it says "rooftop restaurant" on Yelp, but we weren't anywhere near a window or a roof. It feels more like an indoor garden or patio than a rooftop. We had shrimp cocktail (awesome), a mediterranean salad with chicken (delicious but tooooooo big), and my husband had little pasta with pesto which was so delicious, just way too big of a bowl/plate. The service was ok, but we were there a while before anyone knew what to do with us. We were on a romantic date, and it worked for us. I think it would also be great for a large party because the music is the best ever.

VERSA was amazing! The food was so good, and the prices for some big dishes were so reasonable. The view is incredible, and I cannot wait to go back when there’s outside seating. The only problem is if you’re dining with a friend and want to split the check, they do not have that option and you have to do the math yourself. But overall, great experience! Highly recommend!

While we had good food, it was punctuated by very poor service. We had more interaction with the water and bus people than with our actual server. When he did come to the table he wouldn’t even look at us because he was too interested in what was playing on their TVs

I had dinner with 7 friends here on a Saturday evening. The apps were great, entrees were good, and cocktails were excellent. The restaurant is at the top of a hotel; I will be back in the summer for rooftop season. The restaurant is really spacious.

The size of the "share" items is rather deceiving. They're not much bigger than a regular appetizer for one.

It's a bit on the chilly side on a cold day so be prepared.

Overall a good visit. Great location.

For Breakfast, they have a regular and a buffet. We had the buffet as it was included in our stay. The buffet is not elaborate, but there's enough to keep you satisfied. My eggs, fried potatoes (very good), bagel... and a nice banana parfait dessert was enjoyable. The croissants offered are weak. Lots of newspapers available. Great service. Nice atmosphere... so, we enjoyed.

We wanted to stay in the hotel, as hotel guests, and decided to try the restaurant for dinner... it was perfect. The space is awesome, lots of options... large bar, seating in the bar, open to the dining room, and an enclosed terrace (would be awesome when the weather is good). The ambiance is great.

Our food was excellent. The highlight was the KALE & QUINOA salad... with shaved fennel, avocado, green grapes, spiced pistachios, basil honey dressing. Great! The K-TOWN FRIED CHICKEN WINGS w/chile & soy garlic glaze were very good... meaty wings with a nice spicy sauce. The banana bread dessert was huge... good for sharing.

Good cocktails and beer selection. Service was friendly and professional. This place really enhances this excellent hotel.

Went for post work dinner and drinks with my brother on a weeknight and chose to be seated in the heated outdoor terrace. His burger and my Mediterranean salad were both tasty and reasonably priced given the atmosphere and that the restaurant appears to cater primarily to hotel guests.
