We were very hungry when we got in and had an excellent soup, salad and burger. Service was slow (as was restaturant) but very attentive. Food was really delicous!

Had breakfast here during a stay at the Westin Arlington Gateway. Limited options but good quality nevertheless! All drinks are included (no additional charges) and for the upscale environment, posh atmosphere it's definitely worth the price!

The restaurant in the Westin is a go-to place for our group's business dinner, which we recently revisited during the middle of the week. Our reservation was at 6 pm, and available seating remained in the dining room during our 3 hour dinner service. Hence, the place wasn't crowded but the kitchen seemed to be getting orders out on the... More

We've eaten here now 4 times, and this last time was very disappointing. Just to be clear, we had breakfast here as well and that was fine - if a little pricey for $16. Incidentally, note that they will make fresh eggs on the buffet and you don't have to rely on the premade scrambled eggs. And the orange juice... More

I typically do not opt for hotel restaurants when staying at the hotel, but gave the breakfast buffet a try. $16, so may seem expensive, but includes all beverages, orange juice, coffee, etc. One can easily spend $8 for coffee and orange juice alone at many other restaurants. Enjoyed pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. Service was excellent. In my... More

Silly appetizer portions are high prices, e.g., sausage. Flatbread pizza is not well executed. Cheese plate prepared 5 different ways 5 different times - all bad not as advertised, including warm sweaty cheese, plainly precut and left out. Caesar salad that isn't close to Cardini's recipe (so don't call it a Caesar Salad). Steak is overpriced and was oddly pre-sliced... More

The Pinzimini is my favorite neighborhood restaurant, a 15-minute walk from my home. On a sunny Sunday morning with a hint of fall in the air, I savored the experience. Dining alone on the patio, I enjoyed farm fresh eggs, sausage links, breakfast potatoes, and warm butter with sourdough toast. I used to take my dad to the the Pinzimini... More

Such a shame because by time you receive your food your experience of this restaurant is ruined. It is a typical 'hotel' restaurant where the staff make you feel that you are here because you can't be bothered to leave the hotel. The food, however, surpasses that notion and would be acceptable in any good Italian restaurant.

The breakfast buffet was good but the variety of the items was not so big. Compared to other breakfast buffets good quality for a four star price.

The food was excellent as was the service. It is classic northern Italian fare, so don't go expecting a vast pasta selection. There is some pasta available, but the other offerings are much better. Prices are moderate for the area.
