“Worst steak ever!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Quickest service I had at the hotel, only 1 1/2 hour from seating to signing bill so that was a plus. Steak was overcooked, dry, no flavor. I ordered medium rare and got something between medium and medium well, glad I knew in advance they overcook or I'd have gotten a burnt piece of meat. There was no seasoning or salting done during cooking, so the steak has almost no flavor. Sides were fine, nothing to get excited about but in the same vein nothing to really complain about either. The cheesecake here was probably one of the best desserts I had during my stay, and it tasted like the dried out kind you get at a Luby's cafeteria. It was definitely pulled out of a box and plopped on the plate. That was the general assessment of man foods here. Pre-prepared/packaged stuff that is lower on quality/flavor and higher on ease of preparing. You know when you are charging +$75 per person... this just isn't acceptable.

“Very good steak, wish the grapes were on same par”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

As Marriott Resort restaurants go, the food was actually quite good. Open kitchen envionrment is inviting. Wine theme is heavy, but underdelivers. Starters were excellent all around. Quality and preparation of steak orders was excellent on both visits. Desserts were excellent as well. Service was generally good, however familiarity with wine was lacking. Awfully expensive, however this tends to go with the territory. A few upgrades on a weak wine list would be a good idea as well as some training for the staff. If you are desperate for a good steak, this splurge will deliver.
