Hard to know how they can keep this so affordable, given the quality of the local ingredients, substantial portions and imaginative fare. Lettuce wraps with chicken and the calamari were unlike anything we've had before. They seem to emphasize house-fermented kimchi and surprisingly effective contrasts...More

We wound up eating at this restaurant the first night because it was convenient - we had rooms at the hotel in which it is located. What a pleasant surprise! Every 2 days the chef changes the specials and the specials are sometimes unusual, but...More

Restaurant is not part of the hotel but is just inside the hotel door. You park in the lot and ignore the first door you come to which is a bar. Ambiance is great, surfaces and colors catch your eye but blend in. We found...More

This was our second time enjoying a meal here. We had the same waiter both times and he is extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. The food is unique and fresh and outrageously delicious. We had the lettuce wraps as a starter and they were great! My...More

We live in the area and ate here for the first time last night; and while the wait staff was excellent, the food was, well, weird. Now I realize that being a foodie in trendy but I think they are trying too hard. They have...More

I am a snob so I don't tend to think much of restaurants in hotels, especially nondescript highway roadside places. Garlic Poet was one of the best meals I've had in a while and I was totally not expecting that! The staff is quick to...More

What can I say? The menu is creative, the food is delicious and so flavorful. I love the 5 spice chicken wraps with kimchi and soy ginger sauce. What a great change from the mostly bland and boring food that most restaurants offer. The burratta...More
