“Way Overpriced!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

I'll put it to you simply- $20 for a breakfast buffet that you would normally see at a low-scale hotel's continental breakfast. The one positive is that they did offer to let me take the buffet food back to my hotel room, if desired, which is unheard of at any type of buffet setting I've ever dined at.

The lunch buffet was similar- $20 for some meat and cheese plates and bread items. Even the coffee and water cost money! I was staying at the hotel on business and was completely outraged at the prices. Since it was during Hurricane Sandy, I felt as if they were taking advantage of us by price gauging.
My final complaint is the fact that NOT ONE of the dining staff spoke or understood basic English, oftentimes finding an English-speaking staff from another department to help translate. Ridiculous!

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

The service towards the end of our meal was pretty slow. Desserts and coffee took too long. One of the entrees took some time as well to come out, my co-worker had to wait to eat while everyone else started.

“Lunch and Dinner Options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

ALL of the flat breads are great here, the Chicken Caesar Wrap was pretty good as well.

The manager's reception on Wednesday was off the hook! The chef actually cooked right in fron of us and then we got to sample!

“TOO expensive very small portions”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

VERY EXPENSIVE for what you get, the steak was the size of a McDonalds burger with cold green beans for 40.00.
