Two good lunches

I had lunch with two different friends, just a week apart. The corn chowder was so tasty that I ordered it a second time. On the first occasion, I paired it with salad, and on the second I had the truffle egg salad on a croissant. Our service was prompt and efficient, although we were surprised... read more

Ate here three times while staying at the Marriott. The children's meals are good. The lunch specials are tasty and a deal but the service each time was Slow...I mean, can't get a second drink until they bring the bill...slow...unresponsive and more than apathetic. Patience required if willing to try this place.

Had dinner at Vesta last night. I had the fresh pea soup and the beet salad with salmon. The pea soup was more a vegetable soup. Delicious. The salad was right sized and the salmon perfectly cooked. Beer selection very good.

This is a great little restaurant in the trendy area of downtown near the river. We ate here twice and had excellent meals each night. They offer a great selection of craft beers and the food is excellent. The burgers and pizza were very good as were the appitizers. Service is very efficient and good. The place is not loud... More

The atmosphere is predictable, the food was average, the service was good and the martini was excellent. If you are staying at the Marriott or Homewood, its a walk and it gets you out of the hotel but it's just not all that. The prices seemed quite pricey for average food.

We stopped in for a light late dinner and were not disappointed. The lamb burger was so savory, and the shrimp on toast was flavorful. The mista salad was fresh and tangy, and the Spanish meatballs were extremely tasty. (though the pomegranate reduction was too sweet). Overall, interesting food, well prepared. Service was very good once we were seated.

I should have went to the McDonald's down the street for better food. The wait staff all acted like they were working in a school cafeteria. The whole experience...BAD

Great selection and nice walking distance to the Marriott and Homewood Suites. We had a pork special and the lobster pizza. Excellent! Would go again!

The restaurant was quite busy when we came a Saturday evening, but they found a good table for us anyway. I asked the waiter for a specification about something on the menu, and his first answer was insufficient, but he returned and explained it better, which earned him some bonus points from me;-). The food offer was good (it was... More
