What a refreshing change when I saw the Brussel sprout and kale salad on the menu. This crisp salad had nuts, cranberries and lots of flavor. The dressing was tossed with the salad and perfectly dressed. You could taste the salad with a hint of dressing. It was the perfect amount of crunch that made it delightful without being overly...

We stayed at the Marriott and the Viva was adjacent so we went for a late dinner. The menu is varied and I ordered the chicken breast with feta. It was tasteless and the feta was almost nonexistent. My son did better with a hamburger and fries, which was okay. There was no ketchup on the table, nor did she... More

Ate here as it is right next to the hotel I was staying at. Went on a Sunday night and it was quiet, even with sports on the tvs at the bar. Had the kabobs and they were tasty. They had tons of options on the menu, including salads, burgers, sandwiches and lots of appetizers. Service was friendly and efficient.

We (four of us) went for dinner Monday night. Very nicely appointed restaurant with both inside and outdoor seating. All our meals were great, but the server was totally incompetent. He was very pleasant but neglected to bring all items ordered and was VERY slow on a 2nd beer order. He had to be asked to clear away our empty... More

I visited the Bistro whilst on business with a large group of colleagues for dinner. Service at the bar and in the restaurant was fast and very friendly. Venue was clean, spacious and comfortable. Food service was quick considering number of plates ordered. Food was tasty and beer selection plenty.
