This newly renovated and just re-opened beautiful dining-room exceeded expectations. Gracious and attentive servers, excellent food and a warm, elegant ambience all contributed to a memorable evening.

“Sunday Brunch and Romantc Dinner”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed a romantic dinner in the Circular Dining Room with a seat by the windows. We planned to order their famed "chocolate" with every serving (even the salad) meal. From the appetizer, salad, entree and, of course, dessert we had a flavor of some chocolate. The waiter went our of his way to see that our desires were met.
Based on the success of that meal, we returned for the Sunday Brunch and enjoyed seafood, lamb, beef and a myriad of other fare, and of course, dessert from a very long table. It was decadent, but one brunch we will remember.
For dining make a reservation and associate it with a special occasion so it will leverage your chances for a window seat. The Circular Restaurant was Mr Hershey's design; you will have to find out why when you get there.
Hint: If you only have time for one...do the Brunch!

“Nice Place for Brunch”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Second visit for my wife and me. Plenty of great food options including an omlet bar and lots of seafood for those who like it. The view through the large windows is great.

Wonderful food, great service. It is pricey, but worth it for a special occasion. I understand that they are remodeling turning it into a bar and restaurant. Too bad.
