    Food was excellent and servers and bartenders were friendly and attentive. We had salmon, hot chicken sandwiches, calamari and tacos. Drinks: spicy margaritas, wine and bourbon. Everything was fresh and tasty. My favorite only recommendation would be some kind of dipping sauce for the calamari.

    The food was great but the service was almost nonexistent. We sat at the table for twenty minutes before anyone took a drink order. The appetizer, the salad, soup, and the entree all came out at the same time and it was over an hour after we had been seated. Nobody came to check in us which is unfortunate because my wife got soup but no spoon. By the time we managed to flag someone down and get a spoon the soup was cold. I won’t be returning.

    There was nowhere on the website that said that there would be a limited Valentine's Day menu, so that was a little annoying. We were seated in the middle of the restaurant (which was pretty empty at the time), and asked to be seated at a table closer to the window, but were told that tables were reserved. However, like I said, it was almost completely empty and I seriously doubt that 4 reservations had requested to be seated near a window. Also, we felt like we were being rushed out the entire time, but that could be because there were only 3 couples in the entire restaurant at that time and the staff were being extra attentive. Might try it on another night other than Valentine's Day, but not sure.

    Very convenient to Boch center and Wilbur. Limited menu on show nights. Priced high like most hotels. Weak drinks, stick with beer and wine. Service was good. Seating comfortable. Food was good but high priced for what it was.

    When I saw the W jazz brunch advertised I was excited. Expected a large room with acoutics appropriate for a jazz band and spacious seating with a high floor view. Not what we got!! Restarunt small, immediately inside Hotel entry door on ground level - view of sidewall in theather district :(. Band too loud for space, played 10 -15 min short sets and took 3 breaks the 1 hr 20 min time we were there. Worse yet, place was about half full when we sat down, yet we were told food would be a 45 min wait even before we ordered due to a kitchen staffing issue. Cappacino was nothing but milk. Breakfast OK.

    It was conveniently located, we didn’t need to leave the hotel. Quite overpriced. Not the best experience. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday, confirmed by a staff member (took away any surprises I was planning). Also no complementary sweets for my wife, so I question the need to confirm it was her special day. Barely had much interaction with the staff after that. It was a cold experience, especially when there wasn’t that many people in the restaurant, we felt ignored. Food was close to average. I’m caught between a rock and a hard place when rating a place like this because I really loved the hotel itself. The Gallery was not anything like it appears to be in the website’s pictures. Different angles or updated images for guests would have made me choose otherwise. Thank you, next.

    Very limited theater menu. Calamari was too crispy (too much time in the fryer). Medium/medium well burger was served well done. Wife’s steak w/ potatoes was lacking flavor. Flavors for calamari and burger were good (the fries were very good) and the location perfect for going to a show but the quality was poor. Seem to focus more on the night scene than the food.

    Food and drink were fine. Manager was rude to my wife. We had a reservation at 7:15 and were going to a show but he said we had to wait 15 minutes. What is the point of making a reservation if you are not going to hold a table for us? Our server was extremely slow and in no rush at all to help us. She moved with little urgency.

    My friends and I came here for dinner and the service was very poor. We were seated immediately which was great, but the waitress did not come over for twenty minutes to take drinks orders. We gave our orders when she finally arrived and then asked for a couple of minutes for food. Another twenty minutes passed and we had to flag down another waiter to ask for our waitress. She returned and took our food order and said our drinks would be right out. I had to ask again because another 20 minutes went by with no drinks. Drinks didn’t come out until at least 45 minutes after we ordered them. Waitress was so slow that we gave our card to the food runner who brought out our meals, because hadn’t seen the waitress since she dropped off our drinks. I will not be returning.
