Great 2014 Office Christmas Party

We have a small dental practice with a great "Complete Health" committed team. We wanted to do something special for Christmas. Because we are such a small group (18), it has been difficult to find a venue that would accomodate our small numbers but still provide an intimate area where we could... read more

We are never disappointed when we visit the Enigma. The chef here must really love what he/she does for a living! The food is always amazing and intriguing. I would recommend the mystery dinner.

Started with lipstick stains on my water glass and went downhill from there. My food was unappetizing and my wife concurred with my assessment.

I had some really tasty food here. I love the Malted Waffle. And at night their food is excellent. While kitchen is extremly technically proficient, they do tend to under use spices sweeteners such as agave nectar Sugar and salt & pepper. This is most likely because there are alot of people that whine about to much salt and such.... More

I saw the room service menu and found it to be pretty expensive. Adoba gives tickets for the breakfast buffet when you stay there. I don't know about the other meals but breakfast was pretty awesome. They had two kinds of juice, fresh fruit, yoplait yogurt, pastries, muffins, cereal, hot oatmeal with toppings, bread, hashbrowns, sausage and/or bacon and an... More

We arrived late in the evening to the Adoba Hotel and were tired and hungry, so we decided to eat in the hotel's Enigma Restaurant. It has a varied menu with lots of interesting salads. We had kale and spinach with raspberries, blackberries and slivered almonds. We ordered the braised bison which was slow cooked and tender. The wine list... More

I watched the servers use silverware and glasses left after a group leave to reset the table. I do not know how they knew which spoon or fork was used and which ones were not. I could not eat there our second day because I was not sure if it was clean or not. This happened both days. Really gross
