The staff members were exceptionally polite and attentive. Any restaurant would be pleased to employ them. They are a real asset. The food was delicious. My only complaint - and this was out of the restaurant's control - was the problem which I encountered trying to exit the hotel's parking garage. The Calvert Street automatic exit wanted me to pay ninety (90) dollars for parking my car in the garage for just under two hours. By the time that I drove back up to the fifth floor of the garage to exit on Woodley Road, I had gone beyond two hours and was into a third hour, costing me thirty-seven (37) dollars at that exit. Again this was a hotel problem and not the restaurant's, but it spoiled an otherwise great time at this restaurant.
Overall a good place to eat with a group or a meeting at the hotel. Service was responsive and attentive.
The food was always good and it's great for groups.
For a hotel restaurant I find the quality of food and service above average.
For a quick business breakfast meeting we were here two mornings in a row and did the buffet. Service was efficient and area quiet enough to do what we needed to do.
The food was great. We had a party of 4 and everyone ordered something a little different. The service was above normally and they even made a special request for a cappuccino!! The only hiccup was I used an Open Table Dining Check and no one had seen or used it before. This caused a duplicated charge to my credit card. Other than that, everything was great.
Stone's Throw Restaurant for Lunch was a nice dining experience that allowed privacy for conversation. Unfortunately since it's open to the meeting space below, it's not always as quiet since noise travels upward.
I needed to meet with clients during a convention at the hotel and this was the only logical place to do it on a rainy day. I had red bad reviews so expectations were low. I had the grilled tuna salad. The tuna was perfectly cooked (almost rare) and salad was exceptionally good. Others had club and said it was good. Service was good considering that they appeared to be understaffed having a large convention in the hotel.
The restaurant was closed for a special event and did not inform me ahead of time even though I had a reservation. I did not eat here.
In the midst of a busy conference--which is the business of this hotel--it took 10 minutes to get a breakfast table, even with a reservation. It took 45 minutes to get a plate of toast; the pot of coffee for 3 people was tiny; and the waitress never returned with a refill. At ridiculous hotel prices to boot. I'd never go back for breakfast.
Ingredients were fresh and delicious.
I took my fiancée to this little gem for her first dinner date--and it was markedly amazing. We ordered the Seafood Fettuccine to share, the fried calamari to share, and two Virgin Mary's The fettuccine tasted like it was JUST made--and delicious. The fried calamari was cooked perfectly--not rubbery, which is very hard to do. I advise getting the portions to share--they're HUGE. Like, salad serving bowl huge. The staff were very good about accommodating our requests to have two glasses of water at the table, along with a pitcher of water as soon as they could.
I have no idea why the other reviews gave this restaurant a bad rating. This place is fantastic--if a little bit expensive. But for the food--and for a romantic date--it's worth it.
This restaurant was in a hotel that caters to conferences. This restaurant was incapable of handling the number of people that wanted to eat there. You would thinkk they would have figured out how many people they need to provide service when you have 2 huge conferences being held at the hotel. It took us one and a half hours to have a hamburger!
This place never ceases to amaze me how expensive and mediocre the food is. Only good thing is the convenience of it if you're staying in the hotel. Decent burger for dinner. The Maryland crab soup seemed like it was out of a can.
Wow! What a disappointing experience. This place is in the fabulous Marriott Wardman park. It's definitely not up to the standards of the rest of the hotel. Couldn't find the hottest stand. Communication was tough as the waiters first language was not English. Food was vey bland. Bugrger was not seasoned at all. Would not recommend.
