“Dinner food good, service bad. Breakfast service exquisite!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Had a late dinner and for some reason they serve everything in these large deep bowls (which was difficult for my elderly aunt to manipulate her salmon or cut her vegetables in.) She loved what she could get to. I had a roasted beet appetizer (on a flat plate and it was yum) and veggie salad (in large bowl) with delish dressing. Also had gazpacho soup (again a huge bowl) and though the flavor was good, it was akin to thick tomato soup. Did fish out a couple cherry tomato halves. A flurry of service at the outset (they want to know your name to personalize) and then nada. Food came quickly, then soon after the check, never saw our server again. Breakfast was a world of diff. Service was attentive, not cloying, from beginning to end. And none of that deep bowl stuff either. Appropriate plates and normal bowl for oatmeal. There was a continental buffet, but we chose from the menu. Breakfast was perfect in every way!

“Excellent restaurant in the hotel”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

I ate here for both breakfast and dinner. The food was wonderful and the service was impeccable. They have a decent wine by the glass list and nice selection of items on the menu.

We enjoyed our late dinner and view of the marina. The Caesar salad was refreshing and plentiful. Good food and beverage selection.

“good breakfast but nothing else”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

My friend and I had breakfast here on Sunday April 6 before our Cherry Blossom viewing in Tidal Basin. I ordered breakfast buffet and my friend ordered from menu. The food was good so we did not have a problem paying $70 for two. If we come back next time, we will bring a tablecloth and some flowers for our table. This place is very bland and noisy. The only thing that reminds us about a restaurant are the cloth napkins.

“Over priced”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

Had lunch here today with our administrative assistant for Administrative Professionals' Day. With tip, the bill was almost 40 bucks a person for two salads, two sandwiches, 1 dessert and non-alcoholic beverages. That would've been OK if the food was outstanding. Unfortunately, it was not. It was just mediocre. The service was excellent and the restaurant is very pretty. But, as they say where I grew up, you can't eat the wallpaper. Unless you're on an expense account, I would think twice about dining here, because the value ain't great.
