A Bit of a Dissapointment

I have been to Spin numerous times but my most recent trip will be my last. The menu has changed but not for the better. No more corned beef hash, their hash browns are now fast fried like MacDonalds and the service given the upper end pricing was wanting. It's probably a good place for the... read more

We stayed at the Marriott in late March and took advantage of the breakfast buffet. Service and food were all good and we would recommend taking the package which includes it. Good value.

We opted to pop into Spin for brunch, and were pleasantly surprised. The breakfast buffet was $15 per person. This got us all you can eat fruit, cheeses, cereals, granola, eggs, potatoes, bacon and sausage, pancakes and fresh pastries, coffee and juice. Everything was fresh and tasty. Service was attentive also. Highly recommend as a breakfast spot.

Dinner the first night was pretty much rushed by the waitress. She seemed to treat me more like an inconvenience. I had breakfast both days selecting the buffet. It was pricey for the selection but it was better and had more to select from than the menu in my opinion. I did have dinner the last night there and this... More

Liked the location and open area of the bar and seating. Didn't really like the breakfast buffet as the food was not hot, or even warm and it was skimpy for the Sunday brunch. Ordering a regular breakfast was more satisfying, which is unusual.

Showed up at lunch time with a reservation - there was no issue and the staff were extremely friendly. I enjoyed my lunch very much even though it isn't an inexpensive place to eat. I will definitely return.

Great hostess, great waiters. Fast service. The food was ok...we only had breakfast there though. I felt that an average bacon, egg, sausage,toast and coffee breakfast at $18.00 was a little high.

Not wanting to venture too far in subzero temps, we opted for a cozy table in the Marriott's lobby restaurant. The chef easily accommodated my vegan request for an outstanding Thai curry, while the husband enjoyed house salad followed by steak frites. We shared the chocolate cake to finish our Argentinian Malbec. Decent food, very conveniently located.

This restaurant wait staff were extremely fast and efficient with taking our order. They were helpful in making sure our daughter's meal was GF, the buffet breakfast was awesome and had something for everyone in my family. We had 2 dinners there and they were delicious and reasonable priced!!

A friend and I had a decent lunch here; the service was warm and friendly, the food portions generous, while the food was all right. We both had burgers that will not live long in the memory. I can't think that i will be back soon.
