Had the 4 course Prix Fixe dinner on New Year's Eve. One of the best meals I ever had. Never ordered a steak med/rare in my life but did that night on Chef's recommendation and it was best steak I ever had! Service was exemplary! Atmosphere was festive and fun.

Brunch was interesting, not sure I liked going into the kitchen for food, service was very good and some of the food was excellent but I expected more for the price, not sure I would go back for brunch, have eaten lunch and dinner here and had a better experience.

Brunch is amazing, the french twist and half price bottles of champagne are great, but I love the fact that you actually go into the kitchen with the chefs for the main brunch courses!!! One of my favorite places in the world for brunch!!!

We didn't expect it, but had a great meal here. American hotels are not noted for their food. This was a wonderful surprise. Had both breakfast and dinner.

We were there for their $75pp Sunday brunch. The cold appetizers were well made and delicious, presented beautifully. The hot entrees were in the kitchen, and they let you into the kitchen to get them, they weren't as good as the appetizers, a little over cooked in my opinion. The services were excellent, kitchen and service staff were very attentive.... More
