“Very good, but should do better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

For the prices Escabeche charges (roughly $100 per person, including wine, tax, and tip, it really should do better than it does. The food is very good but fell short of being outstanding. The server, though very friendly, needed more training. Excellence is within reach, but more effort is required.

“Anniversary Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

Stayed at Queens Landing but decided to eat at the Prince of Wales dining room so we could visit another of their sister hotels (Vintage Hotels). Though I had to send my entree back, our server Gerad, worked magic with the kitchen to quickly prepare another that was spectacular. My husband and I were able to finish at the same time. With so many restaurants to choose from, we will try another on our next visit.

An excellent breakfast and the portions were just right. The service was excellent and of course the venue is always very bright and calming.

“Special Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

We had a wonderful experience at the restaurant for a 3 generation celebration for Mother's Day Grace gave outstanding service. The food, the tea and the décor was perfect for this day of celebration. They were very accommodating to my mother with her injury and were very friendly thru out. We would definitely, go back and would recommend this restaurant for a special tea with family and or friends.
