Hot oatmeal with walnuts and dried fruits was very good and quickly served. Extremely attentive personnel. Beat salad and foie gras were fantastic, way over average.

I enjoyed lunch and dinner here. Both times I had a cheeseburger, and the second time I also had truffle fries, and it was all good. Good coffee as well. This being a restaurant in Starwood's Luxury Collection, it's expensive.

I had brunch at this hotel on a Sunday morning. I really wanted lunch, so I appreciated the ala carte menu that included sandwiches as well as breakfast items. I had the turkey pear panini and it was absolutely delicious. Service was incredibly attentive. Had I been on my own for more meals, I would have eaten them here.

Mock Turtle soup! This has been a staple for as long as the restaurant has been around and it's worth it to visit for this delicacy. The service can be slow during busy periods but the food more than makes up for it. If you are there for breakfast, the potato is heavenly!

Breakfast was really good, just didn't like being overcharged by $60...The room folio was double billed for our included breakfast.

We were staying at the hotel during the new year's week. The hotel was completely packed and they still tried to be as accommodating as possible. We did have to wait a bit some mornings to sit down and at times the service was slow - however, what impressed me was the restaurant mgmt pitching in and waiting tables -... More

Stayed nearby but came here for dinner. Lobby is classic and beautiful, Grill just off lobby. Cocktails distinctive and well done. Wine list was good, included some excellent choices, reasonably priced. Wide range of choices for starters, our group decided the mock turtle soup was the best. Entrees were also very good, although limited choices. Not a great place for... More

Good service and menu choices that were unique. If you like potatoes with breakfast, they came up with a killer style.

We were staying at the hotel, so thought we'd try the Grill one evening. We were glad we did! It was fabulous. The service was amazingly attentive.
