The tour and lunch are a package that includes a one hour tour of the historic hotel and a luncheon menu of several selected 3 course meals. Unfortunately, it was raining so hard we were not able to visit the beautiful gardens, but the tour was conducted by a docent that showed her passion for the outstanding hotel. The lunch was excellent as was the service.

The food was lovely and the atmosphere was very nice. Our service, however, left something to be desired. Staff was initially very friendly, available and fun but after the first 15 minutes or so they disappeared. If we could find them again, they were very helpful and brought what we asked for, but then they would disappear all over again. It was frustrating and a little embarrassing as we were entertaining 12 guests. Fortunately, we were able to help ourselves to the buffet foods and there were water pitchers near by. I would recommend the food, but definitely not the service.

Wow! I’m staying at the Vinoy hotel and came in for dinner at the bar. I wasn’t expecting much but all I can say is that this place is insanely good!!! I had a bizarre dinner consisting of appetizers (my favorite) and ended up with a sushi roll (the chef made something up for me and it was fantastic), and the most delicious octopus I’ve ever had in my entire life!!! Japan to the Mediterranean and both were equally good. My bartender/server Shannon was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly and all I can say is come here!

We had breakfast here this morning. I had the egg white omelette and sausage with a fruit bowl side and the meal was delicious. The best part of the dining experience was our server, Pedro. He was so nice, so accommodating. Great atmosphere and beautiful restaurant.
