Connected to the CIS hotel made it a plus to grab something quick and easy. Service was great. Got back to the hotel and needed something to help me relax, sat the bar and joined the conversation between some of the other patrons and bar tender who actually seemed to care that you were there.

Wait staff wonderful. Warm atmosphere. Enough selections on menu to find something without going out to seek a different place to eat, (which I didn't want to do with outside below zero temps.)

Jen and her staff of Ben & Shawn provide great service. Since the recent addition of a new chef and menu this place is great!

The Onyx Bar is a bar with televisions, stools around an L-shaped bar and several tables for dining or drinks. The menu is never changing. It was the same when we went in on our first night as it was on our last night. Just how much Chilean Sea Bass did they order? The food was average. It caters to... More

Absolutely love the seared ahi tuna over garlic and parmesan risotto. If it's not on the menu, and they have the ingredients to make something for you, by special request, they will.

Just finished dinner with my wife on Sat night. This place is pretty much a bar in an average hotel.

Just what the title says...great food, great atmosphere and moderate prices. The Ahi-Tuna with Risoto became my favorite, the New York strip was delicious and the Turkey Burger with the Sirachi Aiolo was a great meal.

a little pricy for what you got and the staff need to have a little pep talk on how to make people feel welcome!

We normally avoid hotel restaurants if other options are available, but the great reviews of this place were very compelling. And it lived up to the reviews in every way. Very friendly, knowledgable servers, surprisingly elegant atmosphere, perfectly cooked dishes and reasonable prices. All this in a Country Inn & Suites?!? Who would have thought?!

I was surprised that a restaurant in a hotel was so fantastic! Everyone enjoyed their choice of dinner items. There was a good selection of items from simple to gourmet selections. The friendly hostess/bartender/waitress was wonderful and helpful. The restaurant had several different dining areas to choose from. We will definitely seek 5120 Restaurant on our next trip to the...
