Lovely decor, courteous service and initially nice pseudo new age music in the background, but the lobster cobb salad and waldorf salad were 90% iceberg lettuce. At $20 & $16 respectively it is an understatement that the salads were lacking the essential ingredients as well as an attractive presentation. By the end of the lunch a toddler was screeching and running everywhere, and the nice background music was no longer pleasant but rather changed -- getting loud to the point it was difficult to hear my companion in the booth. The restaurant which is about 2 years old is located in the Westin Hotel which is opposite the new Congress Centre. The food with the low lighting might be okay for those from out of town who haven't read any reviews, but it's definitely not on par with the Chateau Laurier or Le Cafe. As a local resident I would not return to nor would I recommend this restaurant. It's worth walking a few blocks to the Byward Market which is less than 5 minutes away and exploring the array of different restaurant choices. The prices here were highly inflated but I guess that's how one pays the rent. By the way I've had the Waldorf salad at the 'Waldorf Astoria Hotel' in NYC and this version is a far cry from the real one.
