“Wonderfull lunches at pool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

Honnestly, the 2 lunches we had at the pool were really good. Po Boy really surprizing with its corn and squeeds... The Shangri LA burger with its mex touch is gorgeous.

Sparkling wine at 10$ per glass... What else... Our best last stop ever

ok but nothing special not many selections, overpriced, and not really what you expect from a higher end hotel on the beach

“Decent but not up to par with the rest of the hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013

We ate at the Dining Room four separate times during our stay and had a somewhat inconsistent experience between each one.

Our first meal was room service and we ordered their basic burger, and it was amazing! It was by far one of the best burgers I've ever had, and their homemade fries were delicious. The price was very standard for a burger.

Breakfast the next morning was a little slow even though only one other table was in the restaurant, but it was really good. My mom and I each had the yogurt parfait and loved it, though it was quite pricey for the amount you got; this is a breakfast dish I frequently order, and after many trips to Vegas and for the size we received I would say this is definitely on the most expensive end.

We had lunch there the same day as a pre-wedding meal and tried ordering the delicious burgers again, but this time they were very average. It seemed like they didn't put the same sauces on.

Breakfast the next morning was through room service, and it was a very average breakfast for slightly higher than average prices.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2013

Very attentive staff and tasty food and cocktails. Much nicer than the rooftop bar, where the staff were quite unfriendly.
