Stopped for a late lunch between lunch and dinner. The all day dining menu didn't appeal to us so we had a drink and went to the CityGate Grille instead. The restaurant is gorgeous, clean, and quiet. We stayed at Hotel Arista for four nights and SugarToad always appeared to be providing relaxed meal service along with chic contemporary ambiance.

Thankfully a restaurant that doesn't force you to wade through an unwanted buffet gluttony on Mother's Day! Excellent breakfast selection with some unexpected surprises... eggs benedict with crab, duck confit, etc. All of our meals were cooked to order and served very quickly. The blood orange mimosa to begin was excellent. Lots of special attention to organic, local sourcing, and... More

My husband and I had brunch here while staying at the hotel. Breakfast for the 2 of us was $42...before the tip. The food was good and the service was fine. There were only 3 other tables occupied when we were there so the server was attentive and friendly. Not really worth the money though.

I have eaten here on many occasions. In my experience it has always been very quiet. The food is good and service attentive. It's a bit pricy but probably worth it.

Very well prepared and presented food. I tried an hour excellent consommé with mussels and shrimp, followed by fried smelt that were just okay and a polenta with Parmesan that was exquisite. Very impressed and plan to return.

Located adjacent to the Hotel Arista lobby, the restaurant has a large bar TV viewing area. Since we had a gift certificate, we decided to have a complete dinner including wine and dessert. There is a nice wine selection. We enjoyed the pinot noir and syrah. The octopus was tasty and the brussel sprout salad was very good. The red... More

The food was not that great. One portion of my dish was lukewarm. Not very inspired offerings, as I was led to believe. We got an amuse bouche from the chef that was pretty tasty. The old fashioned I had was good, though. The restaurant was completely empty...

They have quite a nice menu. Everything from fresh prepared unique dishes to a good old hamburger. I had the burger one late night after a long day in the saddle and it hit the spot. Perfectly cooked.
