Friendly, nice atmosphere. Tasty food and drink as you sit in front of the fireplace. The outdoor patio is nice too if the heaters are on.

Food was ok but more like a bar than a restaurant. Not luxurious as would benefit the hotel. Breakfast was expensive but good. An evening meal there wasn't a gourmet experience.

Fabulous spot for locals to gather. Food is excellent and pretty consistent. The bar can be loud but still a great place to gather. The dining room is much quieter and you can enjoy meals with larger groups. Both rooms are great and the food is very good quality.

The place is magic. The restaurant has a uniquely warm and homey ambience. You can see the same people coming here for lunch. Mostly, they know each other. The waiters have been there for many years - they add to the charm. Food is wonderful. The burger - delicious, onion soup is really good. Unfortunately, they dropped my favorite kobe... More

Clean surroundings. Great team. Superb food. Had breakfast there, but have eaten here many times. No need to leave the hotel for an excellent meal.

Had brunch for my wife's birthday. Service was wonderful! Food was excellent. Had the steak and belgian waffles. Steak was tender, cooked perfectly, and melted in your mouth. Waffles were good (nothing too special about them). The buffet was excellent and never looked messy as some other buffets do. I will definitely return to this restaurant.

We had a quick dinner in the Bistro Bar. Nice fireplace with mountain atmosphere. Dinner with wine was quite good. The white tablecloth section (where we had a large breakfast) looks like a romantic spot for dinner. Lots of alcoves overlooking a lighted French plaza.

Anytime after 6pm you will have a difficult time finding a seat the bar in the Park Bistro, Lafayette. That's when Luis, aka "Martini Man" is "on duty" behind the bar,. Luis makes your time at Park Bistro a party. The regulars come for his smile and warm familiarity, the hotel guest for the incredible cocktails and bar menu. You... More

This is a friendly, cozy bar/bistro environment with excellent food and professional wait staff. The burgers are great and the ruben sandwich is my favorite.
