Although we had reservations, we didn't get seated for 10 minutes, which is odd as it was not busy, there were empty tables and there were no other customers ahead of us. That may not seem like a long time to some, but when you have young kids, 10 minutes is an eternity. Our party of 4 were led to a table that had only 3 bread plates, one of which was dirty. Our host appeared indignant when we asked for it to be removed, and no replacement ever came. We had to wait another long time for our server to show up. In the meantime we had no bread or even water to preoccupy the kids. When our server finally arrived she was apologetic and turned out to be very nice, having a great rapport with the kids. She's the only reason I awarded any stars for service.

I would've liked to have said it was worth the wait, but the crab phyllo appetizer was fishy and had bits of shell in it. The Cioppino broth was a mixed bag: the broth was flavorful but way too salty, the crab and lobster were decent, but the fish, scallops and mussels weren't fresh. Overcooking the shellfish did not help. The kids' corndogs were deemed yummy, but how can you go wrong with corndogs anyway? The minestrone soup was a pleasant surprise, it was laid-back and mellow on bean taste rather than being aggressive which suited me just fine.

The food was great. The server was a little cheeky, but what killed it for my wife and me was they turned the lights on at 9:15 and started moving tables around and trying to push us out... mood kill! this was on Valentine’s Day with a 8:00 reservation.

Based on the menu we were served, yes I would. Hubby loved the Italian Sausage Pasta. I enjoyed mostttt of the steak, but one end had a bit of fat and sinew which i had to cut off and it was sorta difficult to see that under the sauce. otherwise the taste was very good.

Much to noisy as an upscale dinner spot with: (1) noisy toddler; (2) a loud waiter; (3) very loud customers. Since there is minimal sound-absorbing interior items, it gets very loud. Fits the role of a bistro though.

Brussel sprout salad was really delicious as was the sturgeon. Restaurant needs to be updated. Furniture belongs in an old diner, placemats from Target and cheap cutlery. Table was sticky and my wine arrived with cork in it. We nearly left...twice. Food was great tho. Very ambitious menu for a tiny place.

Surprisingly good for a hotel restaurant. The pork chops were tender, tasty and delicious. My server was excellent and suggested I get a salad or soup first because the pork chops are cooked to order and take a while. I did and the soup was good. The porkchops were worth the wait.

The presentation of the grilled seafood salad was innovative but was not easy to navigate, have Ng to cut up the lettuce and dig out the lobster meat from the shell. It was dry and over cooked. The shrimp were cooked perfect.

I would not order that dish again. My friend was disappointed as well.

The table next to us was very noisy.

Ribeye was excellent - on par with ribeye from top steak house. Lobster medallions, Cioppino and creme brûlée all first rate. Dinner exceeds expectations for this level hotel - more like Duo at Four Seasons Wailea. (Backhanded complement but well-intended.)
David is an excellent waiter - just the correct availability without being overly intrusive. Remembered the table we sat at 2 months ago and our conversation.

We dine here several times a year and every time the service has been the best, Dave is friendly, tends to your individual requests, wouldn't be the same without him. The food has been perfect every time. Early birds get the view and a more relaxed atmosphere. Valet parking makes it easy. very friendly atmosphere.

Took my son and daughter-in-law to dinner as we were staying at the Embassy Suites. Food was excellent. I had the Halibut, my son had the scallops, daughter-in-law had the salmon, my husband had the scallops and everyone loved their dishes. I had the beet salad it was wonderful but enough for two people, Lisa had the onion soup and it was awesome. Everything we ordered was wonderful. Our waiter was the best. I will go back there again., Very convenient as we all drove for awhile to get there and really didn't want to have to go out of the hotel that evening. Not to many people there n a Friday night which was fine as far as I was concerned.
We were there for the week-end to see the Broadway Play. Pleasant evening was had by all

I had grilled halibut and it was delicious, it and artichoke hearts on the plate were covered in some kind of white sauce which should have been left off the dish, two friends had scallops which were covered in some type of tomato sauce that should have been left off as well.
Our only other issue was it took an hour to get our food and there was only 1 other table of people there and they had already been served.

Very good service, very good food overall. The poached halibut was disappointing. It was fishy smelling and too salty to enjoy. I should have sent it back.
The panko crusted prawns were unbelievable delicious. The steaks, the lamb, the pork,the chicken all excellent.

Celebrated Valentines Day with a special prefix menu that had good selections and quality food, but unfortunately the kitchen's preparation did not match the quality of everything else. The entres came out lukewarm, which was promptly and graciously replaced by wait staff. The replacement was okay, but potatoes were so overcooked they could not be cut with a knife. We will try one more time when we can order from the menu.
