I dined here once and had an overall good experience. I ordered duck and my partner had salmon: the duck was well cooked and seasoned, but the mash potato with it was totally tasteless and the same for the vegetable. The salmon and rice that came with it I was told were perfectly cooked and flavors well balanced. The staff... More

I had a group reservation for 10 on 2/9 , a Saturday night, at Viognier for a special occasion. There ended up being a fire next door to the restaurant and they could not open that night. They called us at 3pm to let us know and to try and help us find another place to eat. Bay223 was kind... More

Get the Granola Parfait. Full of fruit and granola, so high you can't jump over it and keeps you going all morning.

Had the ceviche appetizer and could have had that for dinner. It was outstanding. Had a Hornado Toad to drink with it and was perfect. Skip the dessert, they were dried out and tasted like the refrigerator smelled.

Enjoyed a wonderfully delicious meal that was unique, flavorful, perfect portions with a great wine list. The service was fantastic. The menu choices were plentiful and expensive, but well worth the price. The one negative is that the lobby bar is adjacent to the restaurant and very loud, often making it difficult to hear conversations at our table. Perhaps a... More

This is a very nice restaurant/bar for the hotel. Expected prices to be high so not a surprise. Wild recommend eating here if your company is footing the bill.
