Awful!

Service was very, very slow. Ordered a beer which took 10 minutes then he brought the bottle but didn't offer a glass. One order was for a $24 ribeye steak. When it arrived it was only about 1/4 inch thick and small. I asked for the Chimichurri to be on the side however they put it all over the... read more

Compared to dining here a year ago the new "dining room" was very stark and bright. It actually felt like we were eating in a school cafeteria. Prices are high for for quality and quantity. Service was also poor. I felt the restaurant had gone downhill compared to our visit a year ago. We would not eat here again.

We went with a group of friends this past Sunday for brunch. Service was slow and haphazard. It appeared that they didn't have a chef on duty but used a short-order cook. I ordered an omelette. It was merely folded scrambled eggs. Scrambling eggs in an omelette pan and then folding it over a piece of cheese does not make... More

The new portion of the restaurant are now open but it is a very (cold) feel while dining!!! The service was ok and the food was quite good. I don't think we will be returning because of the atmosphere, which is really too bad.

I had not been here in several years and was surprised to see the restaurant had been moved in to the bar area. It is a very open area with tables scattered around the room. The room was cold and there were several very noisy groups at other tables that made the room extremely loud. The menu had a variety... More

When we first pulled up and found out it was in a hotel we thought "oh great, food probably won't be that good" but we were hungry and needed to eat so we came in. I got the Bistro Salad with Salmon and my husband got the Kobe Beef Burger (Bistro Burger). Both were high quality, superbly executed dishes! I... More

We tried this place a few months back and it was okay, nothing special, but slow service. We went back this past Sunday at 2 in the afternoon and stood for five minutes and were not seated, so we just left. They were not busy, and we were the only ones waiting. We will definitely not go back.
