We enjoyed a fantastic meal at Restaraunt Michael Schwartz. The location overlooking the pool was very beautiful and relaxing. The service was excellent and the food delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our memorable meal.

We were a group of 6 dining on a recent Saturday evening. As others have said, the poolside setting is lovely, BUT, why subject your guests to that as the only option on a 90 degree evening when the dining room is sitting empty??? It was so incredibly uncomfortable that the six of us could not wait for dinner to... More

The setting poolside is beautiful. We came to this restaurant because of a recommendation from a friend. Not to say that it sucks, but it didn't overwhelm in the positive. Service is pretty good, but the food came out really slow. We dined off the lunchtime Miami Spice menu. My wife enjoyed her lamb carpaccio appetizer and seafood stew entree.... More

The poolside setting is gorgeous. The food is nice. I had the kale Caesar salad (which seems to be on every trendy menu nowadays) and I recommend it.

Very small spot. The outdoors dining area is larger but was closed due to rain. The small are under cover was hot and the beautiful view blocked by an oddly place handicapped elevator. Too bad. It could have been beautiful. Food was good. Bar was better!!

This restaurant has a fresh menu, with some different choices each day. Since we were staying at the Raleigh, it was so nice to just walk downstairs, and have a delicious meal inside or outside. I included a picture of the indoor dining area.

Had dinner with colleagues and friends on business/vacay trip. Our table was under a banyan tree in a beautiful setting. The food was pricey and just good, not great. The best part of the meal was the appetizers -charred soshito peppers and sautéed mushrooms

We loved this restaurant, we ate here twice during our three night stay despite other reservations. The atmosphere is perfect, quiet and romantic with twinkling lights and the glow of the pool. The food is wonderful, I had an amazing appetizer with prosciutto, grilled peaches and jalapeno and my husband loved the kale caesar. The main courses were wonderful as... More

This should not be an "average" dining experience. In fact, the food was very good, but the experience did not reflect a professionally run kitchen - even if it was just lunch on a Monday! Our arrival was welcoming and pleasant, and even though we were early for our reservation we were promptly seated. Our favorite wine came quickly -... More

Take a cab no parking. The valet was $30 for the parking. The food was ok we never went back. It was not a memorable event.
