The food was creative and tasty, all of the staff were extremely friendly (loved our server Joshua xoxo), and we ended the evening with a night cap in the lounge with live music. If you go, make a reservation and ask for a table within earshot of the lounge so you may enjoy the ambiance to its fullest!

The brunch menu featured classic dishes such as eggs benedict with minor embellishments. Well executed. Cozy atmosphere on the lower level of the hotel, and it was quiet enough for conversation among our group. Jazz duo was more background music than main attraction.
