Cane in to celebrate a birthday Ashley was so nice and helpful when another restaurant lost our reservation. Besides the reviews Ashley your hostess on 6/26 is the reason we chose to come and celebrate a special occasion.

Do not order the alleged lobster pasta. Weird greens, weird noodles all clumped together and over cooked lobster that was like chewing on leather. Actually spat it out. Yes. In a fancy restaurant. That bad.

If you go to the hotel website there is a tab for event locations and menus. It offers a "chat" option. I would suggest you work quickly as this is a popular venue.
