Conducted a 2 hour meeting over breakfast in nice quiet area. The wait staff was very supportive and attentive.

We were there for the Friday night fish fry. The fish was okay, The salad bar and clam chowder were much better. We took much of the fish and frys home for lunch the following day. The entertainment book coupon made this a reasonable cost

Food and service was good, just a little pricey. Very upscale, but felt comfortable in shorts and a t-shirt. Hostess was very helpful -- we didn't really know what we wanted for supper.

My husband and I received a gift certificate to Innovation, so we decided to give it a try for dinner. We made a reservation for Saturday night, but there was no need. The place was pretty much empty. After dining, I know why. The service was minimal. The woman who filled our water glasses spilled quite a bit, but either... More

My wife and a friend had lunch at Innovation and I asked her to bring back the short rib ravioli. As she was coming home she texted that the food was skimpy and "pretty overpriced". When I got my $14 ravioli, it consisted of six 3 inch pasta circles filled with perhaps a tablespoon to 1.5 tablespoons of a short... More

Nice breakfast menu with many options. Excellent service and reasonable price, which surprised us for a restaurant within a hotel. We were too early for the Sunday brunch but were pleased with the selection off the regular menu.

I almost always avoid restaurants inside of hotels. Experience has taught me that they are usually overpriced and average at best. Innovation is a definite exception. I have eaten here often, and it has yet to disappoint me. Menu is diverse, service is above average, and the food is darn tasty. Get the beer cheese soup.

had a good breakfast bar and tasty dinners with a great dessert menu. We were able to sit and conduct business and still enjoy a nice meal.
