Had a great dinner with my wife after a long flight and checking into the Courtyard Marriott almost across the street. Service was exceptional, has a great diverse menu. Atmosphere of the bar and restaurant is large and well decorated in dark wood. Has great fine dining feel with little... read more

I had the Steak Frites, which was a skirt steak drowned in steak sauce along with garlicky parmesan truffle fries. The steak was good, but not exceptional. There was way too much steak sauce, although it would have been good in a smaller dose. The fries were tasty but nothing special. For $25 I expected an entrée of a slightly... More

Servers come and go, and yes even good restaurants have bad service from time to time. This was bad, don't misunderstand me, but it is the restaurant manger and the chef that are the target of my review. This is a nice upscale restaurant, that is a little noisier than most. The menu offers many good choices. My wife and... More

This restaurant is located within the upscale Lenox hotel. We came here for a Saturday brunch, so cannot vouch for the dinner menu. But the brunch was nothing special and in some ways disappointing for the price. The portions are large but virtually no one in our party of eight finished their plates because the food was not tasty enough... More

Chose this place as it was in our hotel and was well rated. We booked through Open Table and let them know it was our 21st anniversary...they started us out with champaign which was a nice touch. We had lobster bisque, chopped salad, filet mignon and seared scallops. Everything was delicious! The Kentucky Derby was on so that was nice.... More
