It was our anniversary. We had stayed at the hotel and dined at Twenty8 two years ago. Very limited menu. The wait staff were not engaged with the diners. They were congregated among themselves along with the bartender talking to a friend at the bar. The scallops (4) were served on 1/2 cup of faro with 1/4 cup of unidentified greens. No flavor and an unappealing presentation for $26.00. The rib eye was small served with 1/4 cup of potatoes and 4 asparagus spears. Asked for sambuca on the rocks for dessert beverage. They did not have any sambuca. Asked for sparkling water with ice and lime. Waitress brought warm bottle with no glass and did not open it. The restaurant had two other tables occupied at the time. Very disappointing!

Great food and excellent service. Expensive meal. Surprisingly, not crowded for the great meal we had. You might get more people with a price drop.

I made a reservation here by mistake thinking it was another place. What a great mistake! I have very low expectations of hotel restaurants and wouldn’t have looked twice at this place. After the delicious meal here, boy has my opinion changed!

The braised short rib poutine was out of this world delicious! The short rib pizza was a huge let down after the phenomenal poutine. I really don’t think there was any beef in it. Put some of the fantastic poutine beef on top of the pizza and it would be bomb!

The service was great! It was not a busy night, so we had the chance to chat a bit with the staff which was enjoyable.

I’ve recommended the poutine to a few people this week, and will definitely be back!

Twenty8 needs to update there web page. I was looking forward to an item on the menu, seared scallops w/risotto as well as a steak for my husband. When we got there and sat down found a very limited menu, typical hotel variety. Had to wait for over 1/2 hour for a pizza as the cook/pizza man had to replenish his supplies ( cheese, dough) during the dinner hour. The dining room is next to a banquet hall w/no wall, only a curtain. We happened to be there during a bas mitzfa so alot of you young people screaming and music was loud.
We ordered a beer and wine and to our disbelief both were wrong. We had the drinks for another table and they had ours.
There really was no reason to use Open Table, should have been a sign of what to expect, as there were ample tables available. Have to admit the bar was pretty crowded.

We arrived after a movie for dinner. We were greeted with a very peasant lady that offered us purse holders and changed our napkins to black. So nice. Jason brought us drinks we had great flatbread pizzas. Food was so good. The atmosphere was quiet and the restaurant was warm! The spacing between the tables was fantastic so you did not feel you were on top of each other. After dinner we had coffee and Jason left the table with a small pot of coffee the meal and atmosphere was so delightful we will return

I have dined at the restaurant many times but noticed that the appetizer portions (nachos, wings, tacos) have become much smaller and the menu prices have increased. It's not great value for the basic menu items that they offer. The restaurant was not busy but yet it was extremely noisy due to screaming kids in a nearby sitting/drinks area. It's unfortunate because they allow kids to run freely with very little supervision.

New Year’s Eve early dinner before a movie. Restaurant was empty. Waitress and hostess were welcoming. Food was pretty bad. Husband had hamburger served on soggy roll. I ordered chicken dish. Chicken was not cooked through and had to be sent back. Waitress was very apologetic. Chicken came back over cooked and dry. Limited menu and empty restaurant, the kitchen shouldn’t have had any issues with our order. We probably won’t not go back.

Appetizers and Dinner were very good. Service was aweful. Waited 10 minutes for 2 draft beers, resturaunt was not busy. I ordered a cocktail, waitress left table, never cleared dishes, never asked 3 other guests if they needed anything. Then my cocktail never came. Bartender finally walked over to apologize that she spaced was watching football game and chatting. Really? I would try it again because the food is very good and it's a cool-looking place.

My wife and I were standing for 10 minutes inside nobody came to talk to us or even try to figure out why we were there. I tried to get their attention; they acted like they don’t see me standing there until I just left. Keep in mind the place wasn’t even busy only 2 tables were occupied with some additional people at the bar.

We had a reservation for a family birthday dinner prior to the revolution soccer game. We got seated right away but were not seen to for over 20 minutes. Once the waitress came over, she was friendly and apologetic. We put in our order and 40 minutes later still nothing. I asked the waitress how much longer and she mentioned they were very backed up and didn’t know. There was a wedding going on and I don’t know if they were short staffed or they didn’t have the appropriate number of servers but they obviously could not handle both a wedding and dinner reservations. We cancelled our order after waiting 50 minutes with no food and ate in the stadium. This was our first time and last time going to this restaurant.

I gave this restaurant a one because I couldn’t give it anything lower. Ordered our food at 5:30. It didn’t arrive until 7:00 with one of our entrees missing. We saw several diners leave without receiving their meals. I strongly suggest you consider other restaurants.

Really bad experience here on Saturday. Most frustrating part was that the menu listed online is nothing like what was offered when we arrived. It contained about half of the items and the only vegetarian option was a green salad. When we asked staff about a vegetarian option it seems to present a big challenge. How can a restaurant in such a prime location have nothing to offer vegetarians?

Service was very slow. Half of the staff was running around overwhelmed while the other half couldn’t have been less helpful. It wasn’t terribly busy as we were there on the early side. I can’t imagine what it looks like when the place is full. Yikes.

For a Friends' night out, this was a nice atmosphere. The venue is open and modern feeling. We had a table by the window and felt it was easy to talk and did not feel like we were too close to our neighboring tables. The service was very good with wait staff getting it just about right with being attentive and not checking in too frequently. Everyone was reasonably happy with the food, though it was not outstanding. The apps were solid, but my falafel wrap was just okay. Falafel was a little underdone and the add-ins were underwhelming for a falafel sandwich. Others were okay with their meals though no one was raving. I think we will go back because it was a nice gathering place for us and the food was good enough.

Springs in booth seats are broken, you can barely get in and out because you’re sinking so low!
Cheese fondu appetizer was delicious, but waitress took it away from us before we could finish it. Calamari was dry and burnt. We decided not to stay for the dinner because the experience was terrible.

Service is great, always friendly and our waitress put up with my boyfriend asking to taste the beer lol so that’s a huge pro! Pear martini was fantastic. We had the gnocchi with short ribs and falafel sandwich. Both really great! Pizza looked fantastic but we didn’t try it (yet). We shared the flourless chocolate cake and it was ok, sort of a small portion which is fine with me. We will definitely be back.

Met friends for dinner at Patriots place and this was the only place that had a reservation time we could make. Food was good, service was ok but prices were high. I understand it is a hotel restaurant but I think they would do a better business if the prices were more reasonable. Saw a couple actually walk out complaining that the prices were too high and went somewhere else.

Waited 25 minutes for our drinks, then the waiter decided to come tell us that they didn't have the alcohol for my wife's drink and had to order something else and wait for those drinks, 35 minutes for drinks, I asked for a pizza well done, it came out just about raw, we will never be back nor will we recommend

The meal was outstanding. The service could have been a little better. We waited 55 minutes after we ordered our appetizers for them to arrive which seemed excessive as we were the only people in the dining room at the time. After that it was all smooth in timing. The other hiccup was we ordered a bottle of wine and when we asked for another they were out. They suggested another that was $20.00 more than the bottle we started with but after we told them about the delay in the food agreed to give it to us for same price as original.

We were there for restaurant week. You could order from a special menu or pick from their regular menu. The special menu was a great value and the food was very good. This restaurant is located in a sports complex so when there are no events at the stadium it is a nice quiet place to relax and enjoy good food. The staff is very attentive and the drinks are also good. We look forward to returning.
