We sat in the Parker Bar for our dessert. Tried the Boston creme pie. It was delicious. Great service too.

I had a salmon salad and it was very good. The dining room is elegant and the service is old world style so it is a welcome break from most places. I recommend.

The buffet was fabulous. Made to order omelets and huge blueberry muffins crusted with coarse sugar like Aunt Mary used to give us.

Ate in Parker's Bar. Had Steak Tips, The tips were served in delicious steak sauce, the mashed potatoe was whipped and presented as a flower. The vegetables were raw and included string beans and a petite squash and zuchini.Also included were of course the parker house rolls. As excellent as the food was the service was even better.

The dining room had a only a few tables occupied. The Boston Cream Pie was delicious but looked and tasted nothing like the Boston Cream... More

The menu is broad (at many high level restaurants today we wonder what is the least bad thing on the menu that we can order), the service is prompt but not intrusive and the food is well presented. Each of our... More

JFK proposed to Jackie there. Malcolm X was a busboy there. Ho Chi Minh was a baker there. The Filet Mignon was amazing. The Boston Cream Pie was... More
