“Slow service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

The service was very slow and uncoordinated the morning that I ate here for breakfast. Food was okay at best. Typical hotel restaurant. Perhaps dinner or lunch are different, but I'd avoid this restaurant in the future.

“Not what I was expecting”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

I only ate there once and I was not impressed much. I've had fish and chips, and both felt like they were reheated and "fluffy". Not the ideal way to start your trip. To be fair, however, I arrived at the hotel late, and perhaps the kitchen was closed already.

“Excellent feta turkey burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

I've been back several times just for the turkey burger which is only be available on the lunch menu before 2pm. It's excellent. Stuffed with feta and has cucumber and red onions and comes with sweet potato fries. The price point is pretty good as well for a hotel restaurant. It's never crowded when I'm there, but the service seems to be pretty hit or miss. I've been there and have had someone join my party and the server never come back to ask for the new order. And then I've been there when service is right on.

“Very good food, very poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Eat there if you like but expect to wait a while. Service staff is not very good. The food is very good. we had a variety of things from fish to burgers to chicken caesar salads and they were quite good.
Just be prepared to ask where your order is.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

WE ate here while guests at the Mark Center hotel, and enjoyed every bite. The breakfast buffet was tasty, the menu selections were vast and delicious, and the service was properly attentive.
