“Number 1 still”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

This is my favorite restaurant now and in past. I would rank it among the top 5 that I have ever been to - and probably still number 1. This pastt saturday had Anniversary dinner there with wife. Dinner was terrific, wait staff always attentive, food was delicious - everything. Had squash soup for starter and trio of tomato for salad. Beef for me and the seafood piaya (spelling)deconstructed was absolutely wonderful. The deserts were also wonderful but were so full had to have them delivered to room later. I dont think there is a better chocolate souffle in the world - there can't be!

“Fabulous Excellent Outstanding”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Fabulous, excellent, perfect, elegant, comfortable, attractive, outstanding, etc., etc. The Fountain is a great choice for any event or special occasion and you can actually have a quiet conversation here. Anything else to say is that I can only echo all the other 5-Star reviews.

“Flawless preparation ”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

Exquisite small portions. I ordered the pea soup and scallops, both prepared and presented beautifully. Bread was a little stale would be my only criticism. Also service is terrific but possibly a little too attentive/affected, but it goes with the fancy vibe.

“Tob brunch with top service”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

The title says it all ... . Plenty of fine food for the Sunday brunch, in an elegant room, spacious, comfy.
The waiters are well dressed, smile and here to help.
Food is delicious, proof that a buffet can be somptuous, all you can eat and quality. You find it all: salads, sushi, meat, pan cakezs, eggs station, cheeses, fruits ... Does not stop.
And when you are done, pay (75 USD exc taxes but worth it), walk a few meters and seat in the lobby, rest.
