I had dinner and 2 breakfasts at the Bar 223. Service was consistently good - friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. The food was good and there was good choice on the menu. The restaurant has a friendly atmosphere and isn't intimidating if you are in your own. Very good for a hotel restaurant with extra effort to make people feel comfortable.

While a nice restaurant with excellent food I didn't like the rolls that were served. I made a complaint. When our server went to the table next to us he and that couple were making fun of me for complaining. After that, nothing would have made my dinner acceptable.

Our entire family all had a great time at the Sofitel Redwood City's Sunday Mother's Day Brunch. Tables were well spaced, decorated in a lovely manner, and with fresh flowers. A small group provided live music in the main food area. Food stations were well organized, and always replenished! There was even a food station for kids. Food quality was... More

Had dinner here on when I was staying at Sofitel. The food in general is ok. I had a full course meal and found that the entrée was passable, mains was good and dessert exceptional. Of special note was the team member, Aimee that provided very, very good service when I dined there. She was warm, friendly and attentive in... More

Situated in the Sofitel Hotel, I found this to be an incredibly average dining experience and with the exception of 1 server-Claudia-the service was poor; amateurish even. Claudia was fantastic though-organised and efficient-made a nice change from the rest! As for the food, unremarkable and the selection was poor for my tastes. The bar was good though.

We ordered the basic cheeseburger and their french onion soup, and it was top notch. We didn't feel up for the price tags offered on the menu, but we were pleasantly surprised and it turned out to be one of the best burgers I've had. Also ordered a fruit plate and was pleased that the fruit was ripe and sweet.

Our family made a meal just with the small plates of appetizers and salads. Excellent wine list and fine fresh-baked breads for the table.

It is not bad wine, but the prices are very high. The caramel scallops are amazing and worth trying.
