Staying at the Tribute Marriott, my daughter and I ate at the Silver Trumpet the morning after attending a ballet at Segerstrom Hall. The Sunday brunch selection is ala carte, which we prefer over a buffet not being big eaters. My daughter loved the lobster omelet. It was reasonably priced with loads of lobster and included a side of fruit. I had the make your own omelet for $15 which included three items plus fresh fruit. Coffee was amazing.

My daughter and I ate at the Silver Trumpet for dinner pre-ballet on a Saturday evening. We were seated immediately but food came before our drinks. I think they are used to rushed people trying to catch a show. The bacon wrapped dates were the star of the meal. The French onion soup was a little too sweet for me. We both had the beat salad (mine with salmon and my daughter's with shrimp). The salmon was amazing.

The restaurant is beautiful. I have eaten here many times before. The food was really mediocre. Everything was hot, but all three of us had the same opinion that there was no flavor in any of the food. We were adding salt, pepper, lemon etc. to everything. Very blah food!

The restaurant is conveniently located next to the performing arts center. Location. Location. Location. The ambiance is trendy. But after that, the thrill diminishes. The service ok. The waiters work hard and are covering a lot of territory. The food for vegetarians is minimal although the salad was tasty. Basically I would visit again because of the location. Otherwise, this restaurant is nothing special.

Great choice pre theater. Server kept us on schedule, the Fig Martini was outstanding followed by salad and short ribs. Ample portions and delicious. Short walk to the theater. Would definitely dine here again before the theater - wish we had time to try the key lime dessert!

First time to this restaurant, what a perfect find. Went prior to show at Segerstrum theater.
We chose the 3 course prix fix menu. One of us had rack of lamb, the other salmon. we choose the wine paired menu. Everything was excellent.
Our friendly and experienced waiter, Iud, was a treasure. Timed food delivery perfectly so we could walk across to the theater in plenty of time for the play. He shared we could park in the self parking structure, which we had, but they validate and you can leave your car parked there during the preformance. Nice perk and very convenient.
All in all, a most delightful evening.
With no preplanning, and help from Open Table in restaurant choice, it couldn't have been better. Definitly will be repeating this plan.

The Restaurant is nice and offers indoor and outdoor seating with a view. The price is pretty good compared to other places their brunch menu is fabulous offering $14 bottomless drinks. I just have to make a remark on the staff, The staff was very unprofessional and seem to hate their life they seem to be antsy and not liking the fact that they were working. we had three different people give us a lot of attitude and seem unhappy with their work.

Food was delicious but the value was not. Would have been nice to know there was only a fixed price menu when we made the reservation or they called us to confirm the reservation. Fixed price menus are not ideal for large families with smaller children who don't really eat several courses or need that much food.

A great restaurant under any circumstances. We took our family of 10 to dinner after seeing this years production of Scrooge. So convenient, right across the street and with dinner parking is validated. I don't know why everyone seeing a performance doesn't top off the evening with dinner or drinks at the
Silver Trumpet. Food was very good, my lamb was a bit to salty for my taste and I think for most others, but still good to go. Craft cocktail menu is very nice and for beer lovers their is a type for all tastes. Mitchell our server was attentive and on the spot with drinks, bread, food and all. He even pleased all of our non meat eaters and vegans. We originally tried to eat at the restaurant in the Symphony Hall but they stop serving at 6pm. Considering the schedules of the performances not even sure why they have a restaurant on site. So going forward we are Silver Trumpet fans for every family outing and date nights after a performance.

Writing reviews aren't my cup of tea. Been coming here for 10+ years since when it was the Wyndham due to it's food, bar, & proximity to the theater across the street. However, after going to this restaurant last night, I will not be back, nor will I recommend people frequent this establishment.

Made reservations for a table of 3, as usual, before the symphony. This was 6-9 weeks in advance. The restaurant called the previous day to confirm the reservation, again, as usual. We arrive a little early as we normally do, but we are told that the restaurant has been bought out for the evening for a private event. We had to find a seat in overcrowded bar, sit outside on one of the coldest nights so far this year, or go somewhere else. The wait staff made no excuses; true or not. No apologies were extended. The staff was lacking to the extreme.

If a respectable establishment confirms a reservation, one expects the establishment to keep their end of the reservations. It is simple courtesy in our civilized world. As the Hong Kong based owners of this hotel keep spending millions trying to make this hotel a destination, they have lost focus on the staffing & their training. They have lost sight of what makes a good hotel... Or maybe they still do not knew.

Stay away from this establishment.

We had a reservation made some tme ago for this past Saturday evening at 5:30pm, 12/14. The restaurant had called the afternoon before to confirm the reservation. Furthermore, I called the restaurant on the day of our reservation around 2pm to let them know that two in our party were sick and could not make it reducing the amount of people that would be attending. When we arrived on time for our reservation we were told that the restaurant was reserved for a private party. We could either sit on the outside patio or in the bar. Since it was cold outside we chose the bar. It was very loud in the bar. I complained to the hostess whose only response was that she would let management know that I was not happy. I thought this was a "fine dining" restaurant. I will not be coming back here and certainly cannot recommend anyone else go here.
