I didn't really have many choices as to where I could eat when I recently stayed at the Drury Plaza, adjacent to this restaurant. I heard glowing reports about it from someone I know, but... anyway. Here goes.
There are restaurants that always appear to "give as much as they can afford to give," and other restaurants that "give as little as they can get away with." In my opinion, this restaurant leans toward the latter.
Granted, I was only in town for 4 days, and didn't have a lot of time to spend in the restaurant. The restaurant catered our event on Saturday, and as much as I'd like to tell you how it was, I cannot. By the time I got to the food trays, they ran out of just about everything and said to come back. They said to get "sides." But, the "salad" was nothing but lettuce. And the other trays were pretty worn out too.
When we were alerted that they had reloaded, again, by the time I got up to it, they were out. I ran (well, walked-jogged) over to the Whole Foods market in what time I had left to find something.
Looking at the plates of my fellow conference-goers, it looked like pretty tired salmon and pieces of beef (like sirloin tips) in some kind of sauce.
Finally went in for a snack Saturday night and ordered some wings - I wanted to ask if they were ABSOLUTELY SURE they could really spare those 2 pieces of celery... I was pretty hungry, but the order of wings was pretty paltry in my opinion. For $8 I expected more. They tasted ok, nothing out of the ordinary.
Sunday they didn't serve lunch, only brunch. Again, a long wait, and being at a conference I didn't have the luxury of time. Walked over to Whole Foods instead. Seriously... there was pretty much no place else I could find to serve food.
Monday, I decided to have lunch there. I was pretty hungry, so I thought that the sirloin steak might be good - it was about the only entry that looked good to me for less than $20. Unfortunately, the server said that they were out of it.
So, I asked about the Flank Steak, and she began to fidget. "Ummm... We've taken that off the menu." I didn't feel like dropping nearly $30 for a decent steak. I finally decided on a Chicken meal - Chicken Marsala - and it was actually pretty tasty. However, the portion size was deceptive. I thought, "Wow! They actually are giving me some food here!" but what it was, was just the 2 pieces of chicken stacked on the side of a huge portion of mashed potatoes.
That, and a cup of coffee, and the tip was about $26.
It wasn't terrible, just not awesome. Beer drinkers would like it, because they have an extensive selection of beer.
Next time, if I ever have to go back to this area, I'm hopeful there will be a few other restaurants built that are within walking distance.
