Title says it all - the food is too expensive, especially given other options nearby. Very nice service though. The waiter was the best part for the experience.

I don't think this place is really a deli so I'm a bit perplexed. I went for dinner so maybe it's quite different during the day. But it was a nice Italian place in the evening. The place reminded me of places in New York, slightly narrow but deep, white tablecloths. I ordered the beet salad and orchiette with broccolini and sausage. Both were fine, if nothing to write home about. I was exhausted and didn't want to walk anywhere but wanted a nice meal and this place fit the bill.

Only place in the hotel to get basic American Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Prices reasonable for a hotel ($20/Lunch).

Two of us, dined for dinner at at Smeraldi's on Valentines Day - that's right! This place turns into a high end restaurant in the evening. Quite a pricey place for Valentine's Day, which is to be expected, but there were no options other than the three course fixed price menu with limited choices. That being said, everything was excellent - food and service.

Good value, $19 for a hot and cold buffet with eggs/omlette cooked to order and includes coffe, juice etc.
The room does need updating but very good value for LA
