“Best Kabobs and Saffron Rice”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is a hidden gem imo as it can get overlooked being a hotel restaurant. I used to be a local and dined here many times (even brought my Mom here for her big birthday dinner years ago) and my other friends still in the Pton area, love it too.

Walking in is comfortable and friendly. I've always been greeted and seated right away by a friendly host or hostess. The dining room is nice. It is the perfect blend of casual and upscale. The service makes it upscale. It is impeccable and the servers are polished and so polite. They are quiet and efficient. It is an overall quiet restaurant.

My go to meal here is the chicken kabobs. They have the best mediterranean seasoned flavor. The saffron rice is fantastic. The flatbread starter they bring to the table accompanied with a dipping oil is delicious as well. I can't even recall what anyone else at the table ordered but they were pleased too.

Great wine list. Reasonable prices. The grounds of this hotel are pretty too for after dinner and they have a separate lounge/bar area which was great as well.

“Pretty bad overall”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

They served me beer in a very visibly broken glass. Service took forever, as well. What I ordered ended up being about 50% different than what I actually received and it all tasted like it came from a can. I love Mediterranean food and there are such better options in the area! Will not be going back here, even if I stay at the hotel again.

“Slow and Cold”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

When we ate here we were disappointed with the slow service and that the food arrived cold. Not what you would expect from this class of hotel.

“Great food, convenient location”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Have been here twice now and both times we enjoyed our food and the place was great. We had a huge family gathering and the waiters and staff were very patient with us and the kids.

“Easter Brunch Buffet kind of disappointing”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

We spent $40 a head on this brunch, which didn't even include mimosas or champagne. The food was just okay, mostly crowded and lukewarm.
