    Miss the buffet, which was what we thought we were going for. We made a reservation but were told we couldn't be seated until time even though there were lots of empty tables. Food was okay. - fairly standard hotel fare with smaller portions. Not worth a trip out of the way as it used to be.

    Our waitress was absolutely fantastic and very attentive to a dietary restrictions. The mixed drinks were also well made. The wine list was so-so. The restaurant itself seems like it’s having a bit of an identity crisis. The food was fair, but the menu lacks cohesion, and portion sizing is inconsistent (ie. a “main course” portion means different things by an impressive amount). And, as a cherry on top, neither the radio nor the live music were jazz.

    Over all, good lunch, good service, ambiance not so much. People walking thru the restaurant carrying golf clubs from one side, and people trying to go thru the restaurant wearing wet bathing suits covered with random wet clothing doesn't leave one with an impression of a quality establishment. Menu very limited, perhaps we expected too much from what is after all a Hotel restaurant.

    Food was disappointing. Lobster in the pasta was undercooked and pasta was bland. They were sent back and replaced with the lamb saddle which was much better. Celery risotto was very good. Service was mediocre and inattentive. We have been here many times before but now we’d not go back.

    There was a group of six people for lunch. In general everything was fine with the following exception. Two people ordered the chicken satay with peanut sauce. It was tasteless and the peanut sauce had no detectable spice in it. This, I believe is an Asian dish and relies a lot on the peanut sauce.

    The food was fantastic. We had the green Thai chowder and the lamb saddle. Best I’ve had for a long time. The staff are friendly and efficient. Unfortunately, it’s not a place for a special occasion. The dress code is ‘smart casual’ but that’s not enforced… people were wearing baseball caps, t-shirts, board shorts and sandals and there were tables of yelling & screaming out of control children. Still the food was really REALLY good and the service was sensational.

    Our experience was fine. When we arrived for our reservation we asked to be seated outside as it was a nice night. We were told it was too busy. There were about 4 tables and 10 total diners. Never seemed busy to us. I’d made my reservations a month before and got seated inside off in a corner where service was seldom seen.

    Service was very slow although our server was super pleasant. It’s a shame they didn’t have more staff. Food also arrived lukewarm but was very tasty. We had requested to move our reservation up by thirty minutes but was told the restaurant was sold out. Upon arriving the restaurant was mostly empty and believe it was due to low staff.

    Food is ok over all . Not great value for what you get . Sushi is really good but over all menu needs an update . Service was awesome thanks Micheal :) wine selection is not great as well.

    Service was not great. Possibly due to new staff. The server didn’t seem to know the menu well. Service was also incredibly slow. We sat close to 45 min before receiving our first drink. Food was also not great for the price you pay. When my husband made a complaint about his steak the solution was either, eat it the way it is or order something else. Cooking another steak didn’t seem to be an option. It made the situation feel a little awkward. The experience was a let down as we had high expectations!
