Shawn was our waiter he was excellent, we had the Prime Rib and Black & Bleu Pasta and a very nice trio desert with cheese cake, creme brulee, and chocolate ganache cake. It was a fantastic dinner, will be back!

Even though the did not find my reservation or recognize my name, the accommodated us and we had great service and food. A night to remember, especially when after writing Open Table that the restaurant could not find my reservation, I was notified I was a 'No Show'. No worries, its all good

Felt the quality of the steak was lower than the price charged.

Our Father's Day evening dinner was fine, EXCEPT for the overdone $35.00 Rib Eye steak. 1/2 of the steak was just fine, ordered medium rare, but the other end was approaching well done. I had expected an offer of a reduced price from the waitress, but that was not forthcoming. Unfortunately, my wife picked up the check, or my displeasure would have been reflected in the size of the tip. We dine at Woolley's occasionally, especially for special occasions, and expect a better experience.

We were celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary and had called to tell them and emailed. The restaurant didn't say or do anything until we mentioned. There were only four tables and the rest of the tables were empty. Food was pretty bland and not worth the money. Waiter was fair. Overall, I would not recommend.

Mother's Day brunch was excellent! There was a great variety of food - and it was all very good!

This location is perfect for Mother's Day Brunch. This was our second time in 8 years at the Mothers Day Brunch Buffet. Both times we were more than pleased. There was plenty of food and high value food like oysters in the half shell, prime rib, and smoked salmon to name a few. The food looked fresh, appetizing and always full.

Their Brunch area is in an arboretum, so it has all the aesthetics of being on an outdoor patio without the blasting sun, wind or bugs. We were not rushed at all, we were there for almost 2.5 hrs. Plus our coffee and mimosas were never empty.

We have been to a number of brunches, including Thanksgiving and Easter. This one was for Mothers Day. I thought that it would of been nice for each mother get a rose, or at least a little more pampered. I thougot the price was high for the brunch. Thought the selection at Thanksgiving was better. Maybe add a Bloody Mary Bar too?

The staff went out of their way to accommodate a request by me to pay for my parents anniversary dinner remotely. The review is from my parents glowing report. The staff portion of the review is from me. Thanks for taking care of a last minite request!

I think it would be incredibly difficult to maintain a high quality restaurant in a busy hotel. I'm sure they get it right many times but on our occasion they just didn't put it together. Service was a little slow as the waitress was probably over assigned by the hostess, kitchen got my dates steak right, mine was just over done from what I ordered, the potatoes were spot on though. Like I said, it has to be difficult and they were close but they just didn't close the deal.

A wonderful Easter brunch at Woolley's. The brunch fare was way above average and Laura, our wait person, was absolutely excellent. She kept the mimosas full throughout the brunch. Highly recommend.

I thought it was great I went for my birthday and it was just the right atmosphere. That waiter that served me didn't seem to know all about the different types and cuts of meat but that's ok everything was smooth and he took cared of us very nicely.

We've been here several times. Service is typically on the slower side, but we keep coming back for the food. This time, however, it was not so good. We were a party of 6. 4 of us ordered steak and 2 of them came out dry as a bone and shriveled. I couldn't believe they served it! Our service seemed exceptionally slow this time as well. We waited close to 10 minutes once seated to even have our drink order taken, and the wait for our food was forever. I'm not sure I'll return. I was super disappointed as we had brought out of town guests and it was our suggested place.
