We had dinner here because we were staying at the hotel. The crab cakes are very good one of our glasses had residue food on it which kind of grossed us out, but the very friendly waitress replaced it when we brought it to her attention.

I work near the restaurant and just recently went there for a farewell lunch. I tried their Hilton Club and it just taste so fresh and delicious. By far the best turkey sandwich I have ever had.

The sushi is excellent! Also the lamb shank and pasta is very filling and makes for a nice dinner. The full breakfast buffet is very good and a great value at $15!

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
