We did not stay at the the Beaumont Hotel, but given the high acclaim of those who did, we expected a better dining experience at the hotel's restaurant, the Ore House. We were greeted and sat upon our arrival and our beverage orders were promptly taken and delivered. However, it was after the food arrived our dining experience (lunch) plummeted. We both ordered salads. I had the Greek salad and my companion had the Garden salad. These items might have ordinarily been acceptable (not exceptional) fare, but in this instance the tomatoes were a week away from being even close to ripe. Not a so much a big deal for my Greek salad, which featured tomatoes in a small supporting role, but were a much greater component in the Garden salad. We were confounded as to how the "chef" (such as he or she might be called) would allow these unripe tomatoes to be served. Regrettably, there was no checking back by our server after our meal was served and only at the conclusion of the meal was there an offer to refill my iced tea. . The tomatoes were left abandoned on our plates, but no mention was made by the server as to why the tomatoes were left untouched. We did get the sense that things were a on the chaotic side - possibly they were understaffed(?) Considering that the hotel seems to hold itself out as a first class property one might think that the food and beverage operation would be a whole lot more sophisticated. "Amateurish" best describes our experience. An unfortunate expereince for both business and client.
