After a long day touring in New York City with Girl Scouts I was not feeling up to more fast food. What a treat to find the exquisite food at Chives which was attached to our hotel! Everything was homemade and fresh! I had the filet mignon, mashed potatoes (as good as mine!), and a medley of green beans, asparagus... More

I had dinner and the buffet breakfast at Chives, and both were quite good. The breakfast buffet was especially good, with excellent variety and quality offerings. Also, these dining experiences were not at all noisy, as some places can be.

Stayed at the Crowne Plaza for a multi-day Indian wedding and had brunch here on the day we left. Had to find a waitress to serve us coffee and orange juice.

This is second time I ate lunch at Chives. I had a Cobb salad which was excellent. The French Onion Soup is also very good. Hubby had Philly cheesesteak which was huge and very tasty.

For dinner, I had a beautiful Baby Spinach salad with the house dressing, very tasty. It was topped with sweet walnuts and blue cheese crumbles. The entrée was a filet, done just the way I like it and a nice sauce accompanying. Fresh sautéed vegetables and roasted potatoes seasoned perfectly. The bar was business- lively and nice.

We are staying here at the hotel. We decided to eat hear after traveling all day. We ordered several different meals. I enjoyed the quesadilla. I also had a salad with my meal. The restaurant was quiet. It made it very pleasant to talk to our party and not raise your voice. Very enjoyable dinner for us all.
