fancy hotel, fancy restaurant. I chose to stay away from the buffet as it was very crowded with hotel guests obviously all opting for that selection. Waiters are obviously used ot not having to work too much since most of the patrons will help to the food themselves. I selected the smoked salmon benedict: the food was very good and... More

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

When my order finally arrived it was cold and over cooked. I got the check while eating. The cost was... More
