“Food is good, service is slow.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Great place for drinks. Try the Russian Mule. Nice happy hour. Food was good, but service was slow the 3 times we ate there staying at the Omni.

“Really poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

We dined for breakfast during the Esri International Users Conference. The food was OK - delivered as requested, but not very satisfying. The service was SO SLOW! We waited and waited for coffee, food, check, etc. Slow service is especially problematic when you're on your way to a conference session.

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

Ate here as it was very close to Omni hotel. Service was good. I would describe the food as average to good......a bit variable really. Steaks were very good but starter was only warm and nothing to write home about. Drinks expensive. Overall OK but I would not rush back to eat here again considering the relatively high price and variable food quality.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Ate here twice, only reason being it was on the main floor of the Omni. Convenience. Food was just OK, nothing special but a tad on the expensive side. Far better restaurants within a few minutes walking distance.

“What a disapointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Bad service and food not worth the price.
Roasted beet salad with crispy goat cheese (served without goat cheese)
Overcooked and fishy rare tuna, i think you get the point!
