Food is good, ambiance is just ok as it is in a hotel lobby. For the area, this restaurant has a decent well executed menu.

We were staying at the Trumbull Marriott where this restaurant is located. We have eaten here before and remembered that we had enjoyed our meal. It was not very crowded and we had a choice of where to sit. Our server, Jennifer was so sweet and patient. When I was not sure about a wine, she brought me a taste... More

This is a hotel restaurant. Having said that, it was good. At least the skirt steak I had was. The breakfast is buffet style, aside from the omelette station. I ate dinner in the bar area, it was loud but comfortable.

Although the food is interesting, it's a hotel restaurant that is slightly over prices and the service is inconsistent to bad.

We had a family group of 6 people so they put 2 tables together. The service was great and they went over what we ordered before we put the order in. They also came to our table to see if we needed anything. I had a Caesar salad that was huge, chicken sandwich, fries and mint iced cream. Other people... More

We thought we'd have a drink at the bar before sitting down to dinner in this very attractive hotel restaurant. The bartender, Pete, was so engaging we decided to stay at the bar and have our dinner. It was a combination of Happy Hour specials, bar food and the regular menu. We loved it all! The "Clam BLT" was a... More

So many hotel restaurants serve such bland food. They do a good job here with excellent service. The manager actually called back one of her cooks to whip up some food for us as we were a a couple minutes past when the kitchen closed. That's what you do to keep getting guests to come back. Hard closings in full... More

I dined here on a Tuesday around 8:00 pm. The restaurant was steady but not crowded. We were seated quickly, but it took some time for a server to show up. They were obviously understaffed but the young lady was doing her best. Drinks came quickly and our orders were taken in a reasonable amount of time. I ordered the... More
