My sister and I had drinks on the outdoor patio here and what really jumped out was the service. The staff in the whole hotel kicked it, but our server was outstanding. Great appetizers too.

I went to Altabira for dinner with a friend that I hadn't seen in 30 years. The food was delightful as was the atmosphere. Brent and I visited for an hour, catching up on memories.

Not sure this is worth the pricey hype, but it's definitely good enough to eat with friends and share a drink after the conference. Compared to Red Robin or Denny's (nearest competitors), this wins by a mile.
