Its like a sports bar atmosphere, but elegant, along with a fireplace. The food is good there. Staff very friendly and courteous. Price is also decent, considering the hotel prices

This is more of a bar than a restaurant. The decor is modern and the high ceilings and gas fireplace and mirrored walls all seemed to work together. The wine list is good and apps were tasty. I would not want to eat dinner here but is a good place for a late night snack/drink. Despite some reviewers being negative... More

I was here for breakfast as I was staying in the hotel. I regret that I didn't go to any other place nearby. Service in general was bad. I got a dirty spoon. I got different food than I asked. When my order finally arrived it was cold and over cooked. I got the check while eating. The cost was... More

We stumbled into this bar just before lunch looking for a cocktail before we made our way to our luncheon destination. The weather was frigid and it was wonderful to walk into a clean bright open establishment out of the weather (so many places are dark and dreary). Although many of the tables were taken there were places at the... More

Let's not get carried away with the food here... It's good, but then again you'd expect that at the prices charged. However it's not excellent and that's why it's only two stars after the shoddy service received today. Takes 5 mins of standing around to get noticed, we are then shouted to come over to the hotel entrance (rather than... More
