I had dinner and breakfast in this Marriott Hotel restaurant. Were it not for our waiter, Liscombe, I would have been disappointed in dinner. He was friendly and generous with his time. It softened the blow of the overpriced and ordinary food. The crabcakes were fried and dry and my companion's steak seemed a bit overcooked. If I had to do it all again, I would have ordered some of the starters instead of an entree. The curried cauliflower was especially yummy, although I was confused and thought it would be brought as a vegatable with the meal, not beforehand. It was also a treat to see steamed clams on the menu - they were passable. The breakfast buffet for $25 was ample and possibly a good deal if you are a big eater. You can also order off the menu if you prefer. Overall, a nice dining experience for a hotel restuarant. (Not to take away from this restaurant, but If you're on a tight budget, this Marriott has a convenient Starbucks in the lobby.)

Service was impeccable. Food was delicious. I did take a little while to get out food but our server was fantastic so that made up for it. Also portion sizes were rather large which meant good value for money.

This was in our hotel, JW Marriot so very convenient. The food was very good and the service as well. Not cheap but comparable to some of the other nicer restaurants. At least the steak came with vegetable and potato unlike the fancy steak houses.

Nice atmosphere but something out of balance here.... food looked good, but just wasn't... for $25 food should be very good and hot hot hot!
