horrible coffee. For $22.00 a plate for breakfast you would think the coffee would be a better quality :(

“Five stars because it's excellent for a hotel restaurant”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Ate here last night with a group of colleagues staying at the hotel. We had made no reservation, but they sat us in a private room [separated from the rest of restaurant by a mesh curtain] that was comfortable and quite. We started by picking out a few wines - from a nice list; very pleasant and good value...we ordered a few refills, too. Appetizers were a delicious calamari and rock shrimp dish, breaded and fried and served with a lovely remoulade-type sauce, and roasted lamb flatbread. Most of us got steak - which was very good, nicely seasoned. My mashed Yukon Golds were just the right accompaniment. I was too full for dessert, but I did order a capuccino which was gigantic [like a cafe au lait at breakfast in Parus]. Service was attentive. i think we were all very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the service. So, no, it wasn't the best meal every, not by a long shot - but it topped the list of lobby restaurants at chain hotels.

“I was more fond of the lounge/ bar”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Don't get me wrong the restaurant was very nice. The atmosphere was very nice. The food while expensive was very good. We went for dinner, and at restaurants such as this with small menus I always seem to have trouble deciding on what I want. That night I ordered the Article One Salad and the lamb meat balls, which were an appetizer, they were AMAZING. The service was also great our glasses were never empty.
But What I loved the most was the the bar/lounge. We spent part of every evening there and it was awesome. I found my new favorite drink there. I recommend the Raspberry Lemon Drop to anyone. The complementary chips and onion dip was to die for. I also tried, I believe it was, the braised short rib bbq sand which with the sweet potato fries it was awesome! It was such a lovely place.
