“Nice menu!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

Great breakfast selections. If you're hungry for a hearty, heavy meal or calorie counting and looking for healthier options, this menu provides.

Lunch options range from soups, salads, sandwiches and heartier entrees.

A little pricey, but not unreasonably priced, tasty food, and prompt, courteous service. Very nice for a hotel restaurant.

“A little overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

The food was really, really good, but i felt like it was slightly overpriced (to make up for the lack of customers?!?). When we asked for a wine recommendation, we were told the waiter didn't drink. When i'm paying almost $200 for a dinner, it'd be nice to get more than a 'i don't drink'. Maybe get someone else to make a suggestion? Something?

“Coffee please. Hold the grounds. In the kitchen!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Overpriced breakfast. Staying with my very old in-laws so they wanted to eat in the hotel. Nobody there to greet us and restaurant was empty for breakfast on a Sundy at 9 AM. No water. French press coffee at a french press price. Cold with lots of grounds in it. Cold toast. Get the idea?

“Beef Tenderloin is AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

My hotel's kitchen was closed for the night so they told me to head to Coeur de Lion. I am so glad I did. The service was outstanding -- 5 star. The food prices were within acceptable range (I was on business and am used to paying $25 and up for an entree) and the serving staff was very helpful in putting together combinations for me. I ended up having the excellent Caesar's salad and the beef tenderloin. I can't say enough about the beef -- it was perfectly cooked, tender, delicious and the port wine reduction was plate-lickable. I could have done without the shiitake mushrooms -- why are those popular at all? But the steak itself was so perfect that I excused the shrooms.

They have an excellent and reasonably priced wine list as well.

Thoroughly recommend.

“Get the Omelet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

Only had breakfast but it was excellent but expected to pay a little more for the great food and service. I think it was worth it.
