I ordered breakfast. Pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon. The food was not much different from what you would get at a local diner. Syrup was not even real maple syrup. Only difference was that I paid much more for the food. Coffee was luke warm. Service was fine.

My husband and I shared the prime rib dinner and it was absolutely delicious! The food and the server (Judy) were excellent!

Loved the farm fresh menu; they put the local farms at the bottom of the menu. Great authenticity. Our waitress was very helpful.

Every time I am in town I eat here. Breakfas and lunch is very very good, but I am reviewing dinner. Their World Tour menu every month is the reason I keepo returning to this restaurant and hotel. It never disappoints. Amazings fresh and creative, well priced and absolutely delicious. Perfect dining and right in the gran train station lobby.

I know I shouldn't begin a dining review talking about the atmosphere, but in this case, I can't help it. Carmen's is located in the historic Lackawanna Station and boasts a beautiful fountain, marble and ceramic decor, and stained glass. Before you have even looked at the menu you are entranced by the historic train station and the elegance with... More

Food was excellent, service was fine, atmosphere was great, wine lis is good. Only complaint is that the wine glasses they use do not compliment the fine wines served. Too bad, next time I go it will be wine by the glass or no wine instead of a fine bottle.

The old-world train station atmosphere was elegant, the service impeccable, and the food sublime! We had dinner on a Saturday evening, and everything our party of four ordered was first-rate, from drinks beforehand to soup, entrees and desserts. The entire waitstaff -- from our excellent waiter to the food runners and water-fillers -- were so good, I felt like I... More

I'll start by saying the atmosphere is exceptional. The Lackawanna Station is such a beautiful historic building. There's such detail in the stained glass, marble and fountains. The buffet is setup in the center and the tables are spaced nicely, so there are no issues getting around with a plate. Sunday brunch had so many selections anyone could find something... More
