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.

The breakfast was really good!!! We ordered room service on our first day there. It was a bit pricey with service charges and room charge, but all in all, it was a very good experience and it was delivered hot and quickly.

We did not eat in the restaurant, but had it served to us in our room at the Arista. Presentation and taste for the Eggs Benedict and Egg White Fritatta were great. Best part was the preserves for the toast - they served it in a tiny square ramekin with chunks of peach. It was fabulous.

Sugar Toad staff were definitely not having a good day the day we were there. You could tell they were miserable and that it was very difficult for them to muster a smile, so who knows what was going on there when we showed up. Service was just sort of take your order, bring your food and bring the bill.... More

Just stayed here for a 3 day business meeting. We ate 2 meals here over the course of our stay and both were excellent. For dinner I enjoyed the salmon entrée and both the meal and the service were good. For lunch, the grilled cheese and tomato bisque were outstanding! Ultimate comfort food on a cold, brisk day!
