    Pricey brunch buffet, but food is delicious, omelets made to order, beautiful venue, and great brunch options. Service could have been a bit faster on refills and removing used plates, but when requested these items were provide.

    The food was outstanding. All six of us enjoyed our lunch. The turkey ruben, fried chicken sandwich and pulled pork were outstanding. The Bloody Mart was also excellent. Unfortunately our server was not outstanding. She never checked in on us and we often had to ask someone to find her when we needed drinks.

    My experience was very pleasant. Service was great, food was great, and the environment seemed calm and collected. The seared scallops were very good. The sweet tea was also really good. The pimento cheese crusted filet was also very good, especially if you are a cheese lover.

    Food was so-so, not bad but not great. Scallops were rubbery and tough, but the meal tasted good. Service was strange, personable but almost standoff-ish. Overall, not great value for money, and the food has gone downhill since the 2010s.

    Service and food for the most part was amazing. We loved the appetizers, main courses, and desserts. However, the mac and cheese did disappoint us. Overall, a really great experience, and we will be returning- just not for the mac and cheese.

    Food was awful - scallops fishy and the sauce was gritty. Steaks thin and fatty. Asparagus was undercooked. Bread pudding was way too dry. The cocktail Apple in my Rye was very good and that was it. We did tell our server that we were not happy and they did not charge us for the 3 steaks we ordered.

    The food was very good. The appetizers - cheese board and artichoke dip were a great start. The brussel sprouts were to die for! We would have enjoyed our entrees more had they all come out at the same time. Our guess is that one entree was never entered into the system. When we finally caught the wait staff member’s attention we were assured it would be right out. 15 minutes later it still was not delivered. It was taken off the bill at that point and eventually packaged to go - it was a steak that was not cooked to specification. The restaurant week dessert of chocolate cake was delightful.

    The service was very poor. We had to ask for new water glasses due to them having debris floating. After ordering steak we had to ask for steak knives to cut the out steak. The food was nothing exciting. I do not recommend

    We purchased the 3 course meal as part of restaurant week. New York steak was featured. The entire piece of meat was tough with gristle- it was cooked to my choice of medium. The piece of meat simply was bad. Kept waiting for the soft center, but the entire steak was poor quality. Waitress was good, ambiance good - steak was very disappointing.

    Enjoyable place, but average food. I had the scallops and my wife had the steak. It was good, but I wouldn’t say it was fantastic…particularly for the cost. I probably will go back here, but there are other places I’d go to first.

    Great food, lots of fruit, which I love, pastries, bacon, eggs, made to order omelettes and waffles, lots of other great options like grits, potatoes, desserts. I was surprised they didn’t have cheeses, sausages, croissants. Overall, very good, great location, convenient city parking garage attached, great ambience, friendly service.

    Worst shrimp and grits I’ve ever had. Drowned in sauce and slices of green pepper…huh? Didn’t realize this place was in the Hyatt hotel, which is not a dealbreaker for me, but makes me a little more cautious. Would not recommend this place at all.

    Had reservations for 10. Table not ready, management did not help the girls up front until a line of people started at the front door. We over heard him be rude to the girls trying to get everything set up. Menu has been cut back from previous dinning experiences. Food was good, service was mediocre.

    We had our Christmas dinner at Roost. The food, service and cost were great. The problem was our table. We were seated at the booth near the hostess stand. Unfortunately it is also near the front door. Every time that door opened, a freezing cold breeze would go across our table. It got very annoying, very quickly. Had I known this was going to be an issue, I would have refused to sit at that table.

    On Christmas Day 2022 everything was compromised compared to the buffet on Thanksgiving. The shrimpcocktail was the best item on the menu. It was very cold outside and inside the enclosed patio area. We had to dine with our coats on. Heaters were on but were not sufficient. Why were we seated in a cold area when there were tables available in the main dining room? The prime rib was okay, after carving off all the fat, but we had to stand and wait for a new roast to be delivered to the carving station and that took far too long. The carver kept trying to get someone's attention so they could bring another roast, but it took far too long. Meanwhile other food got colder. Some food from the buffet was cold to begin with. The dessert selection was no comparison to what was offered at Thanksgiving. The pie that looked like it might be pumpkin pie had no taste to it at all. One small bite was enough. Some ingredients surely had been omitted. For the price per person, I would be hesitant to return for Thanksgiving or Christmas buffet next year.
