Very nice little restaurant in the Hilton hotel.

Their menu has lots of choices but we always had the breakfast buffet when we went.

The buffet featured hot and cold selections. There was always scrambled eggs (with all of the fixing on the side that you could add if you wanted), sausages and bacon, and pancakes for the hot side. The selection on the cold side varied by day but there were many choices from cereals, breads, pastries, muffins, fruit, yogurt, and granola.

Everything was fresh and delicious.

The service was great when we first sat down but we never saw the waiter after that, we were never offered a top up on our coffee or anything else to drink. They were busy but we went 3 days in a row and it was always the same.

I recently had a late dinner here. The prices are high as one would expect of a restaurant in a hotel. There is also not much else around that doesn't require a car or getting on the light rail. I ordered their ahi tuna tar tar appetizer. It was large enough for a small dinner. It came with a side of homemade potato chips. It was spicy with jalepeños in it and was quite good. I had a taste of one of their salads with goat cheese and walnuts and it was great.

Great service - the waiter actually remembered us from last year! He was willing to give us SIX separate checks and found some vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup for dessert even though it wasn't on the menu. The food was excellent and we had a lovely dinner.

Have had dinner a couple of times in the last week. The menu is pretty limited, options are pricey but definitely not prepared with more than average attention to quality and detail.
The place has been pretty empty both times, not surprised about that.
I have had the ribeye steak and the hamburger. The steak was ok but quite pricey.

Service is friendly but not highly professional. It is in line with the level overall at this hotel.

If you are looking for a nice dinner and are ready to drive around, you might want to consider other options in the area.
