“Closed for Renovation”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Never informed, upon making co-located hotel reservation, at hotel check-in, or upon calling the restaurant (voice mail said nothing about closure). Looks like it would be an elegant place to eat. Too bad they can't bother to inform potential customers of their renovation closure. Very annoying.

“Healthy food that tastes great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Enjoy the breakfast buffet or order off the menu; it's all good. The service was great and you can be seated inside or out. Loved the Eggs Benedict and if you want a smoothy or a Bloody Mary; all you have to do is ask.

“Nice atmosphere, just ok service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

The food was good, but the waiter didn't seem very attentive to my needs. He never waited to hear more of a response from me other than what I wanted to order, or a "yes" or "no". He would always immediately walk away. And the Creme Brulee tasted like store bought pudding.

“Breakfast”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

Breakfast was average. Buffet available only when chef feels like it on week days. Service is is not. We left after waiting ten minutes to be noticed at our table, on a middle of a week day. No shortage of staff, just unattentive.
