“Diverse menu”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

I ate breakfast and dinner. Both were good meals. A comfortable place to eat, as a solo traveler, and the service was very good. I felt the menu selections were well priced.

“Should be better”
Reviewed 26 January 2013 via mobile

The bar and the selection of beers it has to choose from is a plus. However, aside from the sirloin steak, Cajun grilled chicken sandwich, buffalo wings and lobster quesadilla the food at this restaurant needs serious improving. What they do well, they do very well. But what they don't do we'll is terrible.

The standard of food here should be a lot better when you consider the amount of people who stay there for business, and the fact that the food at the nearby Indigo Hotel is of a lot better quality.

Stay away from the calamari, rigatoni, burgers, Caesar salad and bricked chicken.

“Fine for Business, after all these years”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

Local businessmen have been eating here for 40 years. Convenient location, adequate parking, reasonable food, good service, not cheap but not exorbitant either. The same theme is used in Marriott hotels around the country. The hotel has been updated/refurbished a lot recently. I'll bet someone could write this review 40 years from now!

Nice view of the pond, too.

“Breakfast buffet is delicious at this clean, open and spacious restaurant. Newtons hidden gem for breakfast”
Reviewed 14 October 2012 via mobile

This is a scaled back but consistently delicious Marriott hotels breakfast buffet with higher quality of food then others of the same size and selection. Omelet station with friendly and efficient chef who promptly delivers a perfectly cooked fluffy omelet with your selected ingredients. Salmon and bagels station. Oatmeal with fixings. Fresh fruit including strawberries, blueberries, melons and pineapple. Yogurt, breakfast potatoes, bacon, sausage and scrambled eggs. Fluffy Pancakes and waffles are prepared upon request back in the kitchen, just ask your friendly server. I think having the pancakes made to order is so much better then a bunch pre-made in a warming pan. The layout of the buffet allowed for movement between stations without having to wait in a long line while someone butters their bagel. This is truly a hidden gem for breakfast in the newton area.

“Marriott Gem”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Excellent Sunday and weekend brunch with a great view of the Charles River. Seating spaced in such a way that other guests are not on top of you. Fresh fruit and standard fare.
