While dealing with the time zone changes, the Cellar restaurant was a good option when we wanted to have some food/drink then head off to bed.

My wife was at a class reunion so I dined here on my own. The food and service was impeccable and the wine was pretty good too.

Other hotels have much larger selection for the price. We thought the price was too high for what you get. Food was OK, but not spectacular.
