Very good hotel restaurant - excellent staff

I've been here a couple of times while staying at Waltham Abbey Marriott on business. Food is plentiful, and reasonably priced - breakfast and dinner services are very chilled out, and the staff can't do enough for you. This isn't a fine dining experience, and all the better for that when you... read more

This is a typical Marriott Hotel Restaurant. Quite expensive for what you get, but very pleasant food. The overall atmosphere for eating is good. It's a big restaurant but usually quite empty. I would definitely eat in here again as I like the atmosphere. The staff are very good and friendly.

I viewed the menu beforehand and at first glance it seemed quite ordinary but as we were staying at the hotel we decided to give it a try. The restaurant is modern and the waiting staff very friendly. the cooking area is in the restaurant and you could see the chefs at work. When the food arrived I forgot about... More

Second night it was 2 fillet steaks, and cooked just right, blue and medium rare. No complaints at all. An enjoyable occasion to eat here. Service was also very... More

Slow service, waited over ten minutes to be offered drinks and menu , restaurant wasn't busy so would have expected better service. Food lacked taste and variety of choice. Buffet was a not piping hot . For a large hotel chain would expect a better standard of food wouldn't go back .

Friendly staff, slow dinner service, limited offer on menu. I am assuming the issue is less chefs, as there were plenty of service staff doing nothing! However, breakfast buffet was faultless.

Yep as the title says - pricey but after a long drive I'd settle for this. Looked after you well, attentive but not overbearing.

Food is mediocre and place is super loud and noisy. Even the waiter had to scream in my ear... because of the noise in the dining room
