In our trip to Museum Hill we have often stopped at the cafe and always enjoyed the food, the opportunity to relax and the nice waiters. It is always slow so if you're looking for a break it's great, if you are looking for a 20 minute quick snack,it isn't likely to work

How can a restaurant continually have such poor service? Beats me, but there you have the beautiful cafe at Museum Hill with waiters scurrying about and no one to seat people waiting. I watched a couple wait 15 minutes even though the restaurant was half full. Walking to the front entrance for a coffee or a coke can be an... More

We ate lunch here and it was excellent! One caveat: although we had small children and they did have high chairs, I don't think the restaurant serves a lot of children as the menu did not include a kids menu.

We enjoyed the food, atmosphere, location, service & view at this restaurant. My daughter and I ordered several items on the lunch menu & were happy with everything we tried.

We stopped for lunch before the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture and the Museum of International Folk Art. Had we known in advance, we would have joined the Museum Foundation before lunch and saved 10% on the bill. Joining was a no-brainer. The two museums we were planning to see were $12 each (for a total of $48). They're... More

Until today we regularly brought guests here to enjoy good food and superb views. Today's cash register receipt showed that an 18% tip had been added. That tip did not show as a specific item on the credit card receipt where we were asked to add a tip, which would be on top of the 18%, if we wished. The... More

I tried their gluten free apple pie and LOVED it! I don't get stuff like that very often so it was a really wonderful treat!

I really want to like this restaurant because it is a beautiful location. I get tired of eating with flies, and service could improve. The young waiter calling a group of 60+ year-old women "girls" was grating. The waiter also gave us wrong information about the food, so I ordered something I would not have had he been more informed... More

We played tourists after first moving here and this is one of the areas we explored. Made a food stop at this restaurant since we were seeing all the museums in the area. It was not a good experience. Service was spit slow, food was only okay, and it took forever to get the bill. My fiancée has since been... More
