Decent menu, nothing to write home about. The food was served quick, and let me get on with my night. This is what you should expect in a hotel lobby bar / restaurant.

Outstanding dinner buffet with various options including salad and dessert. Very fair pricing for a restaurant in a hotel. Even my picky teenage boys loved it. Would definitely return. Our server was very friendly and on top of things.

Ate here one night while staying at the hotel. It is ok, however with other options available nearby go elsewhere. It isn't worth the price but it's open late so if your in a bind and need a quick bite it will work.

One of the best filet mignons I've ever had. Reasonably priced for a big city restaurant. Order the petit (8 oz), but the one they gave me had to be 12 ounces. And excellent sides.

Well worth the wait if you have time. Not enough staff to wait. Had to find own menus and ask two times for someone to take our order. Never checked on us or filled drinks. Food was fresh and tasty.

Wife and I wanted to try something different and tried the restaurant next door to our hotel. Food was decent, prices were average, ambiance was ok.

The food was good and priced fairly. Drinks were made right. Our server was friendly and took good care of our group. We were able to watch the Blackhawk's game which was a big plus for us.
