“"Absolutely Delicious"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2011

The service at the restaurant far surpasses the hotel service. The food is absolutely delicious, especially the fish and chips. The best I've ever had, including London. Everyone was very helpful. The prices were a little pricey.

“Wonderful romantic view added to the food experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2011

The service here, as in other parts of this St. Regis Resort is attentive and not overbearing. Perfect, actually. The people at Motif are all very knowledgable as to what they do. The food was presented perfectly and the view was so romantic.
The whole experience was peaceful. I can only speak from a noontime breakfast experience but I imagine this must be quite spectacular at sunset.

“Terrible steak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2011 via mobile

My wife ordered the beef filet and I ordered the prime new York. Both were awful. I told the manager the steak was terrible and he insisted it was prime grade and walked away in a huff. I have had prime steaks in great steakhouses all over the country and motif charges top prices for terrible food.

“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

Had lunch at the restaurant three times and all three times was excellent. Waiter Alec was especially good. Fish tacos were best I have had. Had dinner and was less impressed with menu. Also, lots of kids at dinner. Recommend formal restaurant for couples.
