Our food was fresh and well prepared. The atmosphere was bright and relaxing. Melynda, our server, was very knowledgeable about the food and drink menus and suggested a wine that we really enjoyed.

We've enjoyed breakfast in the Tulu Restaurant on the ground level of the Marriott VB each morning and must say that their breakfast offering is in the top 5% of any breakfasts I ever remember! And, the pricing is more than fair. The menu items...are all delicious and we've enjoyed most of them. Delicious! While I am not usually a breakfast potatoes type, they are even delicious. The only thing is they serve too much food on the plate, but having said that, I am 73 years of age and can't eat as much as I used to. But better than the food, is the service. The staff really work in harmony and support each other better than any restaurant I remember in a long time. A few standouts during our visit were the waitresses "Missy" and "Melyanda", and waiter "Alexx". But all seemed to be top caliber waiter staff. I had dinner there last night too and enjoyed the "Ribeye Pork Chop" with grilled Broccolini. I don't usually order pork chops in a restaurant as they are usually tough as cooked too quickly. But theirs was exceptionally tender, juicy and with an excellent flavor. I doubt in the highly rated Orion on the Rooftop at this same hotel could have done any better. Over 4 or 5 visits to this hotel, every dish we've had in the Tulu was excellent . Give it a try!More

We spent Saturday afternoon on the deck at TuLu Seaside Bar. We were blessed in having Erin be our server. She was attentive, polite, informative and just the best server anyone could have. We spent a few hours eating and drinking. She always checked on...us, made sure our "drinks" were never empty, and as the wind picked up and it got colder, she even made hot water in a to go cups for us to put on hands on to warm up. The food was wonderful ( crab stuffed shrimp, mussels, shrimp and grits, lentil soup (so warming) the lava cake, bread pudding (OMG really really yummy) the Italian Coffee, orange drinks and selection of beers. You cannot go wrong. Wonderful weekend !More
