Buffet or a la carte breakfast available. Omelette station is nice. Just giving this a 3* rating because a couple of the service. I gave a 3* because , while most of the staff were excellent, a couple were less than professional acting for this class of restaurant. Who walks around a restaurant with a chair on their head???

Stayed at the Westin for 10 days and hoped to have some meals at the hotel. This restaurant missed the mark by such a wide margin that I walked 15 minutes in pouring rain to find someplace else to eat.

Previous reviews suggested to me that the breakfast here would be memorable. Sadly it wasn't. It was typical of many hotel dining rooms. Staff were very friendly and pretty attentive but there was nothing noteworthy about the food

Although at first reading the menu does not seem extensive, there is enough choice to satisfy most diners. The salmon was presented with a crispy skin and thin slices of tender mushrooms in a tasty tomato broth. My companion called for a spoon to scoop up the delicate sauce which accompanied the pork belly and scallops. Both plates were cleaned... More

I only found this restaurant two days after I checked in to the hotel. Impressive. The food was top notch or better. Service was beyond anything I've ever experienced in a hotel. Josè, my server, was a breath of fresh air, thinking about adopting him add my son. Keith the manager runs a great operation. 6 stars out of 5!
