For an in-hotel restaurant, this place was pretty good. Steak was tender. Taters were delicious. Kids menu had plenty of options. Service was quick and friendly. Prices weren't out of this world either.

Stayed at the Hilton in Alexandria and found a gem of a restaurant inside - the food was excellent and the service (while a bit slow) was exceptional in the fact that they constantly checked to make sure everything you needed or wanted was taken care of.

I don't know where to begin so I will be kind. The bar service was atrocious the bartender didn't have any recommendations because he has not eaten the food, he also could not recommend a local beer because he doesn't drink beer. I walked in at 3:30 it was 3:55 before the new restaurant manager who was very kind came... More

There were a lot of items on the menu that interested me and I ended up going with an Italian dish--I don't recall the exact name. It was very tasty. Our server was very pleasant and attentive.

Have eaten here several times, for all three meals. I would recommend lunch for the best value, but dinner for fine dinning.

My dad has severe allergies which requires us to be VERY selective about where we eat! The sous chef came to the front and took his allergies seriously! She came to our table each time and brought his food out personally. The food was decent but pretty pricey!! We thought we were getting our discount (hilton friends and family), which... More

The staff was let down. They did a poor job of engaging me as a customer. The only time I got help was when I flagged them down. I went 45 minutes without seeing my server. My food was brought out by other servers, and the meal was served to me in a plastic bag with plastic table wear. See... More

Food was decent and pricey! Small little sushi in the restaurant! Pricey steaks and it's just steak with nothing else! Good place for a group dinner!

I stayed in the Hilton Mark Center on business and tried this restaurant the first day of my stay. I just had a simple burger and it was very good. Service left a bit to be desired though. It took a while to get seated, but there was barely anyone in the restaurant. Once the host deigned to seat me,... More

The food was pretty good. However they just could not handle the traffic of a convention in the hotel. It appears as if it's poor communication between the hotel and the leased restaurant. You'd think the hotel would let them know what occupancy was and they could staff appropriately. They did not and they did not adjust as days went... More

Ruthann, We apologize for the inconvenience. We were aware of the large group and are part of the Hilton team. The experienced waits were based on the volume of the group in comparison to our capacity. Our teams goal is take of our guest once they are seated, instead of seating our guest and have them wait for service. We... More
