“Excellent breakfast buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

Large, healthy breakfast buffet with several selection for a reasonable price. Seldom see fresh fruit, and makings for smoked salmon on such a buffet. In Intercontinental Suite Hotel within easy walk for most Cleveland Clinic buildings

“Food just as before - great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

I dined here before the remodel a lot when it was called Citrus. This was my first time back since the refurbishment. The food is just as good as ever and it was nice that some of the wait staff remembered me from having come in a lot before. There are definitely healthy food options available as highlighted in green on the menu. These options have under 600mg of sodium and less than 4g of added sugars and less than 4g of saturated fats. While the menu is different from Citrus' there are plenty of good items on it. Aside from the great food and usually friendly staff the restaurant is never busy, but is always a bit slow. I must note however that this time my waiter Yoosef did not keep my water glass full, did not offer us dessert and did not remember to ask up if we had a valet ticket (Remember to get your valet ticket validated for free valet.). Nice patio however and quiet inside atmosphere to dine in. Currently (18/5/12) there is a 15% off FourSquare special going for 1st and 3rd time diners.

“Great food! Healthy too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

We grabbed an early lunch here before an appointment. The staff was friendly and accomodating. The restaurant was clean with fresh flowers on each table. I had the club sandwich and when we asked for fresh fruit, the waiter said that they could make a plate that was usually offered on the breakfast menu. It was fabulous. We will definitely eat here again!

“Absolutely awful”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

My wife and I were on a combination business and leisure trip to Cleveland in mid-January. We wanted to stay in a nice hotel but not in the downtown area, so we selected the InterContinental Suites Hotel. We had a nice two-suite and wanted to have dinner and breakfast in the hotel. So we went downstairs to the C2 Restaurant.

The first clue was that at 6:45 PM we were the only ones seated in the restaurant.
The second clue was that this restaurant has the ambiance of an operating room: stark white walls, brightly illuminated, uncomfortable table and chairs, and no privacy (which was not really an issue because no one else was there).
The third clue was that when I ordered a Silver Patron margarita, the bartender came out and asked me how to make it.
The fourth clue was that the only beef dish on the menu was grilled sirloin! Hey, ground sirloin is great in tacos -- and our dogs love the occasional grilled sirloin treat -- but somehow the idea that beef tenderloin is a really nice dish seems to have eluded the chef.
The fifth clue was that even though only two or three more tables were seated after us, the service took forever. Fortunately, our two orders of grilled sirloin were actually pretty good.

Now to illustrate the problem further. We stupidly went down to this "restaurant" for breakfast the following morning. Same operating room ambiance, no surprises there. Again, not a person in the room, absolutely no one! There was a buffet offered at $15.95, which had the same tired melons, cold cereal, mediocre pastries, cold eggs, etc. as found in many "free" breakfast services in hotels located on Interstate highways. After sitting there for several minutes with no one even offering any coffee, we fled in search of a Starbucks.

We have been in hundreds of restaurants in about 50 different countries, but this experience must be close to an all-time low.

“Excellent Restaurant at a Cleveland Clinic Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2011

C2 is located in The InterContinental Suites Hotel at the Cleveland Clinic.
We stayed at the InterContinental Suites for three weeks and had many lunches and dinners at the C2. The menu offers a variety of international dishes and excellent appetizers. Although the menu is somewhat limited, we found all the dishes very good. The French onion soup is a standout. The service is both friendly and efficient. We had planned to eat most meals at other nearby restaurants, but ended up eating almost all meals at C2 due to the very good food and the excellent service. They have happy hour every day with tasty hors d'oeuvres. The bar menu and the dinner menu have different appetizer offerings, so you may want to look at both.
