“Three nights in a row!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

This hotel was only a block from ours, and it had one of the sexiest bars in the city! We loved the service, how all the seating was different, and the crazy chairs in the lobby. The art was actually photos of people who moved very slowly. Quite unique. Bar snacks were great and it was a great way to end our evenings! Elizabeth was our waitress, and she was friendly and very professional

“Good service, decent food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

We went here before Thanksgiving. It's a stylish, elegant, casual restaurant. We ordered butternut squash ravioli, rib eye steak, truffle fries, fried chicken, braised pork loin, duck breast, chocolate brioche (chocolate cake dessert), s'more, and vanilla ice cream. Everyone loved the duck breast, braised pork, s'more, and, vanilla ice cream. The fries were too thick and not completely cooked.

Service was good. The restaurant shares a wall with a lounge/club on the other side so the music is really loud.

May or may not go back. Was expensive.

“Crowded and Trendy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013

Service was spotty. They want you to be grateful to even be there. So dark, you could be sitting next to someone and never know it.
