Lovely large windows to people watch as you enjoy your meal. We had the scallops as a starter and they were cooked to perfection. I enjoyed the asparagus salad with shrimp- delicious!

Dropped in the bar for a sandwich and a beer while staying at the Marriott Pinnacle hotel. Nice beer and wine selection, attentive bartenders, and the best turkey BLT sandwich I've eaten in years.

We recently spent the weekend at the hotel so decided to have breakfast/brunch at Showcase as it was conveniently located off the lobby. Our server was friendly and attentive however overall our experience was disappointing. There were only 4 of us in our party and the restaurant was not busy yet only 3 of our meals arrived as we were told our initial order of waffles were burned and needed to be remade. Of the meals that did arrive, one was completely cold and needed to be sent back. The waffles which were to only take a few mins ended up being over 10 minutes and as a result, our family was not able to eat together.

Lovely spacious setting, with friendly staff. One of the first restaurants that I did not find the music too loud for a dinner conversation. Nice restaurant and dinner, but nothing too memorable.

We ate here a couple of times whilst staying at the Marriott. The restaurant is nicely laid out and feels spacious; the bar area is less spacious ... we ate once in each location. The food was very good and served promptly but, despite the menu being the same in both locations, we preferred the restaurant. The staff were great ... as expected from Marriott.
