We had an absolutely amazing dining experience. Started our evening with drinks at the bar and service was impeccable! Our server, Dex, was knowledgeable and explained the menu with such finesse. His attention to our needs was spot on! Thanks Dex!

“Can't Wait to Go Back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

We had an absolute wonderful dining experience. Our server, Dex, was great. He was professional, well informed and made our experience special. The food and wine were delicious and we were fortunate to sit by the window, which made the experience that much better. Although I feel the prices are fair considering that it's part of a 5 Star hotel, it may be considered a special occasion place vs. an every night type of place for many.

“Absolutely fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

We were lucky to be seated at the window that looks out over the lake (the window was open). The wait staff was educated, professional, punctual, and very pleasant. Everyone we came in contact with in the restaurant was just a pro. The food was very well presented, portioned correctly, and had the married flavors you would expect in a fine dining facility like this one.

LIKED the new decor, would have loved to eat outside by the lake but it was raining. Get reservations as it is busy on weekends.

“Wine was better then food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

The wine sommelier was awesome but the food was just ok. I ordered the veal saltimbocca and the presentation was not great and it was just ok.
