“Not to expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Was envisioning an flavorful steak perfectly grilled. I got an average steak and a dry crabcake. The meat was good, and reasonably cooked but not much taste. The crabcake had some crab flavor but was bland and dry. Took one bite of the chocolate cake and thatw as enough
Im glad I wasnt paying

“a little overpriced for the quality of food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

We ate breakfast and ordered from the menu. For three of us, it was over $60.00. We had two omlettes, a pastry basket and coffee. But it was all tasty and the service was good. We had to wait a bit.

“Excellent breakfasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

We ordered a la carte breakfast and sat by the window where we enjoyed watching the draw bridge let some sailboats through while we ate. Food was good and reasonable. There is a big buffet, but a la carte was fast and perfect. Sunny, pleasant space.

“Convenient and consistent.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2011

I have eaten here approximately five times on various visits to the Westin. I have had good service and very good food each time. The clientele seems largely to be business travelers like myself rather than locals. The setting is quiet and pleasant. Their menu is also available in the lobby bar area.
