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.

Convient location. Food choices quite a few to choose from. Had steak Quesideas they were good. Just enough for lunch. Daughter had Bloody Mary which she said was good and a Chicen sandwich was excellant.

Servers were very polite and attentive. The menu was varied and thoughtful, and had a lot of choices. The room, though small, was quiet and comfortable, and the tableware was very clean. Portions were appropriate - not over-large like some places still insist on doing. It was great having such a nice restaurant and bar right in the hotel.

We ate here on a Saturday night. We were seated immediately without reservations. The waitress was friendly and attentive. The menu was very large with many choices perhaps too many choices. We ordered the prime rib special. I felt that I tasted too much meat tenderizer in the meat. The flavor of the prime rib was overcome by either the... More

Nothing special, good selection of food, mostly good foods, happy with our Sunday brunch but unlikely to go back. If we were staying there it would be one thing but I would rather go explore other new places than go back there.
