OMG! I had the best crab croquettes and diver scallops ever. This location on the 19th floor of the Omni provides the most picturesque view. Actually, the same as my room. However, to see the sunset over Yale as I devoured my dinner was AWESOME!

If you like Vodka, try the Bitter Sweet.

I had breakfast here while staying at the Omni....the food is quite overpriced for the area, but the view is pretty neat. The service is excellent as well.

My breakfast parfait was $7 and the glass of orange juice $4. I opted not to do the $24 buffet.

The buffet food was bland, very expensive and not worth it. The view was spectacular. You pay for the view and not for good food. Service was so, so and the waitress half the time forgot about us. I would not go back to eat, maybe for a drink.
