For a hotel joint, it was very good!

Love the oysters on the half shell, short ribs and wine selections. George our waiter was so cool and laid back.

Interesting place for lunch. Interesting salad buffet. The remaining food was reasonable, especially the short ribs. My friend raved about the salmon. Our waiter was very attentive, almost over board in taking care of our needs. Nice smile and good suggestions which we followed and enjoyed. Prices were reasonable.

By posting this, please take in consideration I'm vegetarian, so the late night dinner menu was very limited for me. My colleague opted for the Salmon and stated it was "Okay" and sort of fishy. Nothing to write home about in this restaurant, but a decent spot to get drinks.

Great place to eat at the Mark center Hilton. The service is good and the food is of high quality. It is easy to get into and easily accessed through the hotel. Also great for large parties.

I don't think that Finn & Porter normally offers brunch, but they rolled out a special brunch on Christmas day and it was very good with high quality food options (all buffet) including salad/seafood bar, soup, breads, breakfast and dinner choices, roast beef and yummy and decorative dessert items. The service was exceptional too, including attentive hotel personnel who helped... More

I ate fish and chips appetizer as a map during their happy hour (5 to 7) and it filled me up enough for $5! I'm pregnant, so I can't drink alchool, but there were some great prices for drinks as well during happy hour. I also ate the breakfast buffet every morning. It was delicious. The French toast was a... More

Connected to the Mark enter and Hilton the restaurant is beautiful but service is very slow, The last time I ate there it was after a conference, and we ate in the small separate room off the entrance. Glare from the bar area bothered several of our party and the staff was not sure how to filter out the light.... More

I visited the hotel restaurant for breakfast. They offer a very reasonably priced continental breakfast as well as a breakfast buffet and full service menu. I had the malted vanilla waffle....excellent! Service was prompt and with a smile. Very attentive to beverage refills. You will not be disappointed in the food or the service.

I've eaten at this restaurant a number of times, usually in connection with business meetings and conferences. The food is very good. I like the crab cakes, which I had this time, and have enjoyed a number of other seafood dishes, including the sushi assortment at lunchtime. My companion said her roast beef was a bit overcooked but the vegetables... More
