Breakfast menu with a large selection and daily special. Today's special is a vegetable frittata served open faced, with hash browns, and choice of toast. The frittata was perfectly cooked with plenty of vegetables yet not overpowering. The hash browns crispy on the outside and soft inside. The... read more

Breakfast package that comes with Omni pkg is definitely 1st class. Service was superior. The breakfast hash dish is something you do not want to miss. The Hollandaise sauce was perfect. Best orange juice of the trip.

This restaurant is in the lobby of the Omni Hotel. A large set of tall windows results in a bright, open, sunny dining room, although it overlooks the Convention Center and the trolley tracks. Of note, the booths have high wooden walls with curtain rods over the spacious entry, allowing an illusion of (visual, but not sound) privacy if you... More

Loved the seared AHI. But I really loved the Brussels Sprouts and Potato Medley with Bacon (decadent, yes, but you have to try it!)

M&S is a seafood restaurant and our group came late for dinner. We enjoyed very well prepared cocktails followed by appetizers. I had the oysters and they were great. Others also enjoyed their appetizers. We followed with main courses that were properly prepared and artfully accompanied by wines. Service was attentive and helpful. Overall a very nice experience.

Okay, I hate to say anything negative here because we really had a great time, attentive service and wonderful food. But here's the issue: we came in on Tuesday. The Happy Hour special on Tuesday is buy one, get one HH appetizer. Sounds great, right? We already figured that you would get the cheaper one free, that is standard. We... More

I had my both my appetiser and entree delivered at the same time together. Perhaps this is a new way of turning round customers quickly...!!..certainly a good way of putting people off visiting again. It reminded me of a fast food takeway delivery. I had the pan seared lump blue crab cake as an appetiser and grilled salmon for entrees.... More

Service was awful, food was cold, not what we had expected since we had had a wonderful lunch the day before. Believe they had a staffing issue, the manager had to step in as did the hostess. While we were staying at the hotel, we elected NOT to try breakfast there again.
