During the conference we had used this place as a private, invitation only evening. Amazing views of the waterfront and Canadian side on the other side of water. The lawns outside gives more views.. very good for a group of 100+ guests. The food and drinks were well set up for people to eat and enjoy the evening.

This is the Marriott's bar/restaurant. I had the chicken cesear salad entree. It was above average. I sat at the bar. Service was very quick and friendly. The menu offers a variety from pub food to more standard entrees.

Reasonably priced food. Drinks were expensive as expected at a hotel bar. Service was very good. Food was good with fair proportions. Bar tenders did a good job making sure people got taken care of. Plenty of seating options.

Nice view, but if you are staying at a high floor at the marriott you have a better view. Food and service are average at best. But price is very high. A normal 3 course dinner for 1 with a glass of wine and tip will be 100$ , very expensive considering the quality.

Great buffet in a really nice place. The food variety wasn't perfect but for the price of 17$ it is great

Can't say the food is the best I have ever had. Average at best, but the view of the river and Canadian skyline is beautiful, especially at night!
