Ate there two times and both times the food was excellent. THe service was also very good. Drinks and food are pricey.

The menu had a good variety of choices. The restaurant felt upscale and the menu reflected that. The server was personable and knowledgable. We ordered calmari, steak and a scallops dish. All of these things were excellent. I would reccommend for couples and families with older children.

Last night had an over cooked steak. When I tried to send it back the server was not happy. Said she would send the chef over. He never showed but a manager came over and when I showed her the steak she said nothing. I asked her if she agreed and she said awkwardly.. "thank you." do not eat here.

Great selection. Loved the ambiance with the sax player. I had a filet which was cooked perfectly.

The food and service was great! Steals and chicken were cooked perfectly. There was a good variety of wines on the wine list. The service was top notch-never had to ask for anything...they knew when we needed refills, more of things, etc... It was seamless. The decor gives you a feel of a NYC restaurant that's not quite finished. Besides that we only have old things to say! The food reasonably priced for upscale dining and it was easy to get to through the Marriott lobby. Reservations are necessary or there are a few seats at the cooking bar and you can watch the chefs while you work. We ate there on a Saturday and there was a musician playing. We stayed and had drinks at a nice bar upstairs in the hotel lobby area.
