We were a little nervous eating at the restaurant in our hotel. We haven't had many pleasant memories at other chain hotels but we were quite surprised at how delicious our meal was. We shared the Buffalo Wings and Short Ribs. The buffalo wings were fantastic. I actually ate the skin and that is something I rarely do! We were seriously tempted to order another plateful of wings. The short ribs is more than enough for two people to share and was great.

The bartender also makes a fantastic Cosmopolitan.

The Archives is the Restaurant attached to the Marriott at Brooklyn Bridge. We ate one breakfast there while staying at the Marriott.

It was a typical hotel buffet; better than most. You can also order off the menu.

Everybody in the party enjoyed the made-to-order omlettes. The fruit was quite fresh and varied. Otherwise, it was pretty typical.

I will say that the service was first rate. The servers were attentive, which is very unusual for a buffet.

I would have given the place a much higher score, but at $25/person, it seems pretty expensive for what you get. We dined at several other nearby restaurants (Juniors and Heights Cafe). I felt both offered much better value, even when you factor in the convenience of the hotel restaurant.

The breakfast buffet is pricey but well worth the trip. Lots of selection and always fresh. Food and service are ver professional. Didn't like the fact that they were heavely advertising the Happy Hour all over the hotel and elevators and then did not have it for Saturday Night.

We met friends here on a Friday afternoon. There were 8 of us. It took FOREVER for the waitress to get to us. Then she brought out appetizer plates . It took her three visits to bring out the plates. (why not bring 8 plates in one trip?) the appetizers took a very long time to arrive, however the calimari and hummus platter were very good for the money. The wings that others ordered were apparently very tasty as well. We came back to Archived on Sunday evening as we were staying at the hotel and meeting up again with some other friends. Again, we were seated at least 10 minutes before we were even acknowledged. (they weren't that busy) A gentleman was our server...he took our drink order, and after the first round of drinks were gone...he never even asked if we needed refills ot wanted to order anything more. VERY unattentive! And because there were 8 of us...the gratuity was automatically added in.

Only ate breakfast here -- to many other options in the area to eat lunch or dinner in hotel. Had the All American breakfast (2 eggs, hash browns, sausage links, bagel, juice, coffee) -- was $22. Pretty expensive in my book -- but it was delicious, and there was enough to split it with my hubby.
