We stayed at the hotel and ate twice at their afternoon buffet. Food and cost was very good and staff was exceptional. Wonderful experience and all this in the middle of a beautiful building with so much history...

Been here a few times for the brunch on Sunday. It's nice. This past weekend we did have reservations and it did seem pretty busy. The staff was nice. I liked more of the breakfast items than what I would eat of the lunch items. Some kind of odd selections that aren't to my tasting but everyone has their own... More

My husband and I enjoyed breakfast here before ending our overnight stay. He had the veggie scramble and I had the eggs benedict. Both dishes were fantastic and well prepared. The coffee was fresh and the service was excellent. Our server was very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The menu was full of options for meat lovers and veggie... More

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.

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.
