Waited at desk to be seated for a good 5 minutes and no one came. Finally someone came over from bar area and asked if we were being helped as at this point a few groups were in line. I should have just left at that point, but it was late and I wanted a quick meal. A server came... More

The burger and the steak frites were delicious, as well as the breakfast that we got. A complaint I have is that I ordered the pasta pomodoro and when I tell you I laughed at how small the portion was, I'm serious. That, and, the muffins are cup-cake sized and very hard. Obviously every place has its flaws, but overall,... More

For a hotel restaurant, this place was quite good, my sons had the Wagu beef burgers and marrow app, while hubby and I had sandwiches. All the food was decent and kitchen open till 11 p.m.

Decor is really cool, all kitchen inspired decorations (a wall of muffin tins, a wall of milk bottles, a wall of rolling pins), ordered ribs, they were perhaps the best ribs I've ever eaten at restaurant. Full rack, a healthy (is there is such a... More

Service was very efficient which was important as I had a plane to catch. Omlette was excellent, potatoes nice and crisp, so often soft and unseasoned. The Yogurt Parfait was outstanding, best I have had

Service is slow and painful you have to get up and ask for coffee. Lots of people working, wandering around Food is OK, not terrible. Just slow also

Purchased a Groupon for a dinner at the Pantry including appetizer, two entrees and a dessert. Had read decent reviews of the restaurant, but like most Groupon associated eateries the experience is typically average...and this was. There were definitely high points - the beers were nice and fresh, the service we received was excellent and the overall cleanliness and appearance... More

Nice place good, wait staff and the food was good too. It was a little pricey being at the hotel but not more that what I expected. Had the buffet breakfast.

Cute little cafe, decorated nicely in a hotel. Wish they didnt have blaring TV's. Had a goat cheese and squash flatbread, it was pretty good. I would come back, but it feels exposed and odd TVs.
