The service was fine, although not great (e.g. we had to keep refilling our own wine glasses, and little things like that). Also, the restaurant kind of seemed like, in its conception, it was much better, but things have kind of dwindled. There weren't many people there and it had that kind air of being somewhat forgotten. The food WAS good, although I think the menu was not as forward thinking at it claimed to be on its website.

The bartender/waitress was nice but seemed overworked.
The food was good but this is in a hotel and that was not clear when setting the reservation.
The price was $15 for two pieces of French toast with berries. And $18 for chicken strips and waffles in a sauce.
Hope that helps

Very slow service on a Sunday brunch, with few tables occupied. Food was forgettable. The steak with chimichurri was OK, the breakfast salmon tacos had beautiful presentation but the tortillas were too small, so everything just fell from it. The waitress didn't come to get my credit card, so after a while I paid in cash and left. Not to return.

Alexis our server was amazing. Always on top of refilling our coffee and water and replacing our plates for the next course. The food and desserts were to die for. The desserts were the highlight of the day, and the salmon was just perfect.

I was a little disappointed in the service on this visit, it's usually much better. It was fairly busy so I will let this slide. My biggest disappointment was the lack of quality in some of the food, especially the pastries. I've dined here several times including special event buffets and I was surprised about the inconsistency in the quality of the food.

We had the Easter brunch today. Have to say it was underwhelming. Dry, bland chicken, cold mac and cheese, nothing to really make note of. We got there and it wasn't busy, around 1:15. You'd think with a buffet the refills on drinks and plate clearing would have been better but we had empty glasses and dirty plates sitting on the table. On top of that, the 18% service charge seemed way out of place. Based on service alone, I wouldn't have left 10%. Three people came to $220!! Most definitely not worth it. Very disappointed........

The Easter brunch was well put together. The food was delicious and the egg hunt was fun for the kids. Unfortunately our waiter was just terrible. He did not greet us when we sat. He finally came over and muttered "you want something besides water." He never refilled our drinks the entirety of our lunch. He ruined the lunch with his poor attitude and poor service.

My family of 5 attended for Easter brunch. While we had a good table overall, the wait staff today was a bit slow overall and the restaurant was never full (1130a reservation time). The buffet was ok but the cold food did not seem cold enough and the food did not have a lot of flavor. While other reviews were high, I assume that the normal non-special occasion entrees are much better than our experience. At the price we were charged for 3 adults and 18% gratuity on 5 people, we don't feel we got the value we expected versus other restaurants we have attended previously. As mentioned, we MAY try this restaurant again for a date night but would not attend for a special occasion. Thank you.

My husband and I were staying in the Westin hotel to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We decided to dine at the 2nd Floor since it was convenient. Our reservation noted that it was our anniversary. We arrived to the front and were escorted to our table. After placing our orders, our drinks and appetizers came within a decent amount of time. Our entrees took much longer to arrive. The waitress assured us they would be out soon. After waiting at least 20 more minutes, our entrees brought to our table. My food was room temperature. My husband thought his food was mediocre, at best. Neither one of us ate our food. We addressed the issue with the waitress and she took 30% off of our bill. The manager did not stop by our table to even try to resolve the problem. Neither the waitress or manager acknowledged our anniversary, despite the waitress stating that she saw it on our reservation.

This is a favorite "go to" place when you want a nice meal in a quiet setting with great service. We were there for V-day and thought the meal pricing was extremely fair.

Everything is easy about this place--valet parking (can be busy at times since it is the Westin), friendly front desk staff, quiet and intimate lighting/seating (if you're in the back room), great wait staff and good food.

We enjoy experiencing The 2nd Floor.

Always impressed with the food at the 2nd Floor. the Chef has extraordinary talent in creating flavors and presenting dishes. The craft cocktails are also very good and creative. I've never been impressed with the wine list, mostly wines seen on almost every menu. This is the reason for exploring the cocktails which always impress.

Small but nice place to grab a bite if you're not really hungry and just need a drink. Maybe not the best place for Christmas brunch. Service was VERY slow, it took over an hour for our food to come out. Waiter was not attentive to us nor any of the other staff. Food was not good at all. I ordered the shrimp and grits which was priced at $25, it was very bland and more like an appetizer than a lunch portion for that price. A few other people in my party ordered the burgers, sandwiches and or the seared salmon and weren't happy with their food either but just ate because of the occasion. We will definitely not return here nor recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling through town like we were and needing a place to have brunch/lunch with the family. This place is more for people who may be staying at the Westin galleria and ONLY need a drink.

Wife, daughter, son-in-law, and I attended the Thanksgiving Buffet. Variety was very limited, only two meats (turkey and beef wellington), and both were never available at the same time. We are used to attending buffet at Hyatt Regency in Richardson, which always has more and better choices.

Why this restaurant offered a buffet is a mystery to me. They didn't really have room to properly do so. Service was in the vestibule outside the restaurant proper with hotel patrons passing through at will. However, I was glad they did as the Hyatt did not offer one this year; just wish they had done a better job.

Wow! To have a seasoned waitstaff is the best. (Thank you, Tim, for being at the Westin for nearly 3 decades!)

Our food was delicious and creatively prepared/presented. The whiskey list was ample and the wine list was thoughtfully chosen.

In four days, we found ourselves here 6 times.

It was close to the hotel and well rated so we popped in for dinner. We started with drinks while we looked at the menu. The menu was different than what Open Table referenced. It is an eclectic selection to be polite. We didn't find anything interesting we wanted to try and went downstairs to Oceanaire instead.

I ordered a Summer Chopped salad as it was vegetarian and full of veggies. The manager came over shortly after I placed my order and said they had to change out the lettuce and would that be ok? It would be lettuce wedge instead of other greens. I asked if the only thing changing was the greens and he said yes, so I agreed.
I got my salad and it was now a wedge salad... with ranch and walnuts. Noo veggies aside from some caramelized onions. I wasn't happy but didn't want to complain. Then I took a bite and realized there was bacon mixed in with the onions.
As a vegetarian that follows the practice for religious and allergy reasons, this was not ok. They took the salad away and said they're so sorry but the salad I had originally also ordered had bacon in it. I confirmed on the menu that it did not. I wouldn't go here again if I was paid to.
Our server then said when he brought the check, "we went ahead and took the salad off the bill." Umm, yeah no kidding, I didn't eat it because it wasn't at all what I ordered!
This was no better than a typical hotel restaurant. I wasn't aware when I made the booking that it was inside the Westin. Had I known that, I wouldn't have booked it and could have been spared the poor service.

My wife & I had a Date Night to Celebrate our B-Days. We expected to have a nice quiet meal, good conversation, and not have to deal with our, or anyone else's kiddos. At entry, we were greeted by the appropriate staff, and seated at a nice quiet table at the furthest backend of the Restr., which was our request after looking over the layout of the seating location. To our pleasure, we noted there were no families with "a bunch of kids", so perhaps we had made an accurate choice for a 'Quiet Dinner Date location'. We ordered drinks, appetizers, and was just getting ready to order our meal, when the National Lampoons Family, starring a now much younger Chevy Chase comes in with his wife and... {you got it LOL ;-) }, the entire entourage of four young children. All of which were most likely 6 and under Actually, the kids [for being kids] were pretty well behaved. So, it was not a train wreck. The food was good, but portions are a little stingy. Location provided a very diligent and attentive wait staff. Overall, in spite of it not turning our exactly as we had hoped as far as the 'Dining Atmosphere', my sweetie and I still had a fantastic time, and we also have a good story, and had a good chuckle.

By the way, the reason we put down, "Would not recommend to a Friend", is because we wouldn't want to recommend this location to our married friends for a 'Date Night', and them experience a similar situation. Some of our friends possibly wouldn't be as good natured about it as us. If they have a negative experience, let them find it all by themselves. LOL
