Had lunch at 2:00 PM when we got in. We were the only ones in the place, took forever to get the kale salad and a flatbread pizza served. You'd think the chef had to come from home to cook.

I wish I could leave a more positive review, but as other reviewers have pointed out, the service and ambience of the place is below what you would expect for a four-star hotel.

If you ever stay at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court and have a drink at the hotel bar, the bartender George is very fun and friendly to talk to. He gave us so many suggestion on cool places to eat and see!

We ordered our food from Explorers from through room service and it was fantastic. My wife's burger was cooked perfectly, I had the crab cake Po'boy sandwich which was great too. No complaints here!

We ate a very expensive dinner and the service was slow and the food was cold. The service is slow and not very friendly. I do not recommend this restaurant or the hotel

Bartenders must stay on top of there customers they walk away for long period of time and worried about counting there tip more than waiting on there customers. I have 11yrs as a bar owner these bartenders are very poor. Need a class on customer service and the bar will see a increase in profits.

This is a small bar but very inviting. Large sofas and comfortable chairs make for a relaxing experience. Nice place to unwind after a busy day.

A little pricey but good. Wait staff slow with coffee and juice. Good selection on menu for breakfast
