    We love Lobby because even when it’s busy service is great and I don’t feel I need to share my conversation with people next table. The food is good and well presented, service is excellent. I am happy to see wait staff who have been there for more than ten years. Enjoy hospitality and “quiet luxury”

    Nothing special. We will not return. Was excited to enjoy the beautiful view and Lobby Restaurant, but service was sparse, and employees do not seem happy- they seemed stressed and we were not checked up on regularly, had to wait a long time- most importantly: the food was not chef quality or 5-star. Plated food Temps were not hot, and they were not cooked well. Very disappointed.

    This was our third time dining at the Lobby. Our first experience in Oct '23 was outstanding (food, service, ambiance, live music, etc) which is why we returned for a holiday dinner with another couple in early December - that was disastrous. But, we figured that perhaps they were having an "off" night, so tried it again on New Years. Although the food, like the Dec visit, was again average (warm lattes and soup - not hot), the carpet looked as if it wasn't vacuumed in days, considering all the food debris that was present and the service was sub-standard. Not at all what one would expect from the Peninsula.
    The LobbyResponded on January 5, 2024
    Dear Jim J., I am disappointed to read about your recent dining experiences at The Lobby. Please accept my sincere apologies, as what you mentioned certainly does not live up to our Peninsula standards. I would love to speak with you directly about your experience, should you be open to it. I will send you my contact information in a private message. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Not the Peninsula it used to be. Chicken nuggets were dry - like frozen nuggets. Fish and chips - tasteless. Burger - sad sad looking burger. Server did not even ask what tea we wanted. We have been dining at the Peninsula for more than a decade. It was our 2nd kitchen. Standards have fallen and quality of food sub par for a 5 star hotel. What a disappointment.

    Out with Rochelle for dining on December 1, 2023 after working. The Christmas atmosphere was a blaze. The red, green colors grace the path to the Lobby. We ordered and proceeded with the bread and butter course. A trio was playing and they took a brake; a young boys place his fingers on the ivory and he went classical. This was most refreshing and changed the atmosphere. Yes, we were waiting on the appetizers when a birthday party adjacent to table started to ramp up. The birthday party members were overflowing to our table and we moved after they continued to act as if they were in a private room. Rochelle started with mushrooms soup with crispy mushrooms garnish. The soup was creamy with the taste for more….. the favor more … soup was well pleasing to palate. The salad with salmon that prepared to Rochelle’s liking with crispy skin and fish with cooked mild. The salad with white anchovies was plated and was very pleasing. Leonard has salmon stripes with couscous and crab meat. We were eating well. The  asparagus was a garnish that should been more than bites. We has teas and dessert. The apple crumble was cleanly wanting at best. The one scoop of crispy 1/16 thick apple slice on top was great. We enjoy the space that carried the climate of Christmas. We think the Christmas vibe was more the up! Shalom salad with financial reasons was played it for Leonard white anchovies was played it for,
