Everyone told me, I should eat here, so I did. I truly liked the food, but the price of the food is outrages.

Main restaurant which requires reservations gets a 2 star for being snooty and too di dah. However the zehnders cafe on the bottom floor gets 5 for service and kindness. Better off going to the cafe and having a taster of what you like if you can't eat too much. Staff really nice!!!

My family visited today and had the buffet. It's ok. With that being said, we go every year for the experience.

The server was excellent. Her timing was top notch. She was very friendly. The chicken was cooked perfectly and was extremely moist.

Food is very good for the number of people they put through. Really recommend making reservations on weekends and holidays. Even with a reservation we waited 30 min. My complaint is with tripadvisor.... More
