    Our waiter was very accommodating, especially considering the poor food coming out of the kitchen. My friend and I ordered steak es medium rare. They arrived medium well and we sent them back. The waiter apologized profusely. However, when the second set of steaks arrived they were still past medium rare. Cutting into the thickest part of the steak I realized the meat had a grayish color in the center with a thin ring of sear. I believe they were either pre-cooked to rare and reheated or it was old meat. I did a taste test and it was pretty low quality meat. I then ordered a BLT. It was OK. I felt rather bad for the waiter, as the cook was putting him in a bad position.

    Went there for lunch and the food was decent. The restaurant is in a hotel that needs some updating. Service was good. Overall it was between good and very good. Nothing special.

    I was not expecting a lot from this dining experience. It's hard to get excited about a contract restaurant inside a hotel, also there were very few people in the restaurant. I was very mistaken. Our server was exceptional and very attentive. The food and drinks were delicious. It was very quiet so you could have a soft conversation. I hope to return in the future.

    Excellent food. We had the filet mignon with mashed potatoes and green beans. The salad was great too. Got there late so had to be put in the "overflow room." I think regular dining room probably had more ambience. Most important thing to me at a restaurant is the food, and theirs was excellent.

    In the past we have enjoyed delicious food at the Omni. This past Friday was mostly a disappointment. First of all, we were seated in a small room with no windows, but it did have all the unused setup for breakfast. Not great ambiance. The crab cake appetizer was delicious. We were off to a great start. And then our entrees -- not great. My husband had chicken with red beans - or some sort of beans. The chicken leg was dry and stringy, while the thigh was fine. He wasn't impressed, but he ate the beans and thigh and said they were fine. My salad was a disaster - something I might find at Denny's for not much money. It was an avocado southwestern style chicken salad. The greens were saturated in a very spicy salad dressing, which could have been good if they had not been saturated, which made it too spicy. The salad had just a bit of avocado. We have enjoyed meals at the Omni, and we enjoy the hotel, so I'm not sure what I would recommend. I'd just be honest as I was with this review. We almost always have a late night drink at the bar after a show, and we think the bartender is excellent. Very friendly and professional. It was Valentine's Day, and we weren't interested in a eating a large meal, so we opted out of the special. Maybe that had something to do with the disappointing meal from the menu.

    We planned a last minute trip for Thanksgiving. Dinner options for Thanksgiving night were limited at our time of booking, but we stumbled upon this place. The atmosphere was pleasant, but the food was subpar. In my opinion, a bit overpriced.

    We were staying at the Omni, wanted the convenience, and the hotel restaurant looked pretty good. Also, we had had brunch there years ago. Dinner turned out to be very fine. First, the cocktail menu is a dozen pages or so, designed to help you choose your drink by flavor category. It is helpfully set up as a grid with the base spirit first, followed by the other ingredients. The ones we tried were delicious. The dinner menu is brief but done well. I was able to get shrimp & grits without the meat. Only complaint is that there is only one fish main course (there is a salmon salad) and no catch of the day. The wine list has a number of Virginia wines, both more and less well known. The Pointe is set in a spacious atrium open to seven stories, and was sparsely populated when we were there, so very quiet, a rarity these days. Our server was courteous, professional, and timely.

    Our meals were good. My daughter especially liked the hummus bowl. She said everything in it was delicious. My other daughter and I had the salmon salad which we both thought was rather plain. I think the greens could have been varied instead of just romaine lettuce. The dressing would have been better as a vinaigrette instead of the creamy avocado, and the salmon was good but plain. The dish was good but could have been better. Service was great and we appreciated not having to go out in the bad storm for our dinner.

    Terrible service. We were the only people in the restaurant and the two people who did not order the buffet ended up waiting 49 min for entrees. Not ok. Waiter was rude and dismissive. It took 3 requests to get coffee refilled - and we were very gracious and kind in our requests. Will never eat here again.

    Overpriced, fixed price menu for graduation weekend. This was not revealed at time reservation was made, only one day prior,so absolutely no possibility of making a change for our party of 8. Could only choose from 3 entrees, one being vegan( and not liked by the 2 who had to order it) so only 2 meat choices. Very disappointing. Wait staff was good. Normal menu is probably worth trying, but we aren't going back.

    Limited menu they did not advertise due to graduation weekend. The restaurant was only half filled and still out service was incredibly slow - even a super long wait just to get the check so we could get out of there. You would think with a limited menu the food would come out quickly - nope. Not many choices for teenage boys. Would not go back.

    WE went at 4 pm and they still served the lunch menu which was great for us. Not too heavy not too expensive. Good service we had a table of 8 after UVa grdauation. The food, fancy sandwiches, crab bisque, burgers, pulled pork, appetizers, were all well prepared and large portions. very pleasant setting. Airy, quiet, cool on a hot day, our party was pleased.

    We sat outside on the patio for lunch and our waiter was great and four of us ordered a la carte and two had the lunch buffet. Our table overlooked the downtown mall and it was nice. For a hotel restaurant this is really every good, nicely run, and well-located to avoid the crowds of graduation. I would not make my way here on a tour of Charlottesville, but if you are staying at the hotel or in town for an event, this makes a great breakfast or lunch spot.

    The restaurant was lovely, but the food was cold. Not just not warm, actually cold. And clearly had been sitting out most of the day so that the chicken and pork were dry. (We had an afternoon seating). Service was pretty bad considering all they had to do was bring drinks - I asked for coffee, but no cream or sweeteners came with it. The freshly made food (omelette and crepe) which people had in our party was apparently good. The desserts were amazing. But $52 for carrot cake was a bit much.

    I have been this hotel restaurant many times for meetings, but never dinner. A relaxed evening with great food (large) servings, very good wine and great service which we enjoyed. The food next day at my meeting? Very good - cup of soup, variety of salads, and small but yummy tastes of dessert. Thoroughly enjoyed - would recommend.

    The Christmas buffet was very good. There was a wide assortment of food in abundance. The complimentary champagne was a nice touch. The desserts were just OK. The sweet potato pie was disappointing. Service was nice. Staff went out of their way to accommodate us.
