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

This is located in the hotel we stayed at and the breakfast was so good. The choices were numerous and the wait staff very friendly. It is also very busy.

We received coupons for free breakfast at check in. This was a typical continental breakfast, but served in a nice restaurant. Juices, cereals, eggs, biscuits and gravy, etc. Adequate, but not outstanding.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I was disappointed to read you were less than enthused about our breakfast buffet, since it is so popular with our guests.

Enjoyed the omelet bar (free for guests), and watching breakfast made right in front of me. Good, friendly people in there, and a great day-starter.

When checking in the enigma was recommended as a good place. Judging by the free breakfast it was all packaged food from the not so fresh pastries to the dry scrambled eggs. It was very disappointing as a higher end restaurant. I would definitely not recommend the free breakfast
