“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I usually go to hotel restaurants only when I am too tired or rushed to look for something better. Many are mediocre, but not this one! The food was excellent in every way, the service could not have been better and even the house wine was superb. Highly recommended!

“A solid dining experience”
Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

A solid dining experience. Apps were very tasty. Entrees were good but lacked the "wow" factor. Service was timely and pleasant.

“Cheerful Service & Tasty Food”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

This restaurant is located in The Cambridge Suites Hotel. The bar offers well prepared cocktails. The staff is cheerful and competent. Although we did not eat in the restaurant, we ordered salad and a vegetarian pasta from it. The food was well presented and tasty.

“Great food, great service!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Waiter was very attentive...continually refilled my fruit-infused water. Food was awesome, although a bit pricy. A great place to go for a nice dinner. Convenient if staying at Cambridge Suites.
