The only thing high end and fine dining about this restaurant was the price! La Ronde used to be fine dining and 15 or 20 some years ago it was really very nice but not anymore. We went tonight for the first time in some years and oh dear what a huge disappointment. We would rank this 5.8 out of 10 and that is being generous. The food was not terrible but it absolutely was not high end - not even close! It was food you would find in most hotel restaurants and mediocre at best. We ordered the Caesar salad which was soggy and did not look very nice, but it tasted "o.k." and the mushroom soup which had way too much garlic in it. Then we ordered the Chateaubriand for 2. The meat was barely seasoned but it was just about passable and not bad enough to complain. It was cooked fine - medium rare as we had asked but the meat was not very seasoned so it had little taste to it. The vegetables did not look or taste anything special at all and appeared to look greasy and soggy as though they would be over cooked but they were not once you tasted them, but they did look it. For the price of this meal we expected way, way better than this. The surroundings need to be upgraded badly. Just walking into the hotel from the elevator the place was jaded, a bit seedy and quite grubby and tired looking and it smelt not very nice especially the elevator. The elevator from the car park into the hotel was filthy and in need of a good clean and a vacuum and it smelt horrible, old and stale smelling. The restaurant was dull and again in need of some renovations. 20 years ago this was a fabulous restaurant and while it is still a revolving restaurant that is not enough anymore to carry this place. The service was good, could not fault the servers but it had absolutely no feel or appeal for the fine dining restaurant it is advertised as and it was not fine dining service. If you are going to charge those prices you need to offer more than is available both in terms of the meal and the staff and their attentiveness. We had to wait quite a while for the server to process our bill and we had to keep on asking for water. Very, very disappointing for what we paid for a bland meal that did not even look very nice, especially the salad which looked gross. This meal totally was not worth it and we will not go back again. Maybe our standards got higher over the years but this restaurant really is not fine dining or high end these days.
