    Our first time back in over four years and since it fell under new management. The interior has been brightened up and looks very attractive. Plenty of seating. Service was great and the food was good. The only downside is the large bar attached to the dining area can get very loud making it difficult for you to hear your own conversation with your friends. Otherwise a wonderful place for dinner.

    Tropics Sunday Brunch can't be beat!! Very good selection of breakfast, lunch, and dessert choices that change each week. Unlimited mimosas and bloodies aren't the strongest around - but being unlimited, what can you expect? The server in the piano lounge is awesome - he keeps the drinks coming! Go early for best selection of food.

    This is the first time at the new Tropics Grille. We had a party of 5 and made reservations thru Open Table. We were seated immediately upon arrival (20 minutes early). Our waiter was fantastic, very knowledgeable. Two of us had the lamb chop special was excellent and cooked perfectly. Would definitely recommend and will be returning soon.

    Arrived at 7pm for a dinner reservation at 8pm. Had cocktails, arrived at the reception 8pm sharp. Through Open Table made a request for a banquet. Receptionist confirmed that request upon arrival at 7pm; however, at the appointed dinner reservation there were no banquets reserved...all taken with other diners. Not happy about that and had to be seated in an adjacent room until a banquet became available.

    They do not honour OpenTable reservations. We went there and were told they don’t look at OpenTable reservations and that they were now busy and would be happy to put us on a waiting list. Recommend you delist them from your service. Also looks like the set from “Behind the Candelabra.” God awful place.

    We were seated and waited 20 minutes for a service person to even look in our direction. They never did. Waited an additional 5 minutes for anyone to show up at the host stand to tell them we were leaving. We finally gave up and walked out. Seriously, I get that restaurants sometimes get in the weeds, but this was next level ridiculous. Eye contact or an even a passing “I’m so sorry” would have kept us there.

    We used to love tropics. The renovations have resulted in a cozy lovely restaurant. We went this past Sunday for Brunch. I can’t tell you how horrible it was. It’s a 20 dollar buffet with bottomless mimosa or Bloody Mary. Problem seemed to be that they were really overbooked or unequipped to handle the crowd. There was one poor soul who was tasked with running back and forth and refilling the buffet. He just couldn’t keep up. We arrived at 1pm and most of the chaffing dishes were empty and the one chef was struggling to keep up. They ran out of plates several times and the hostess was amazing and jumped in but it was a disaster. As mentioned it was mimosa focused Brunch and by 1:15 they had run out of Champagne. Suggestion, don’t show a roast in your ad like you have a carving station, when you don’t. No omelette station, really low quality. Our server was either super hung over or just unable to offer drink service. Overall a disaster and yet easily fixable by management, have multiple buffet attendants. Raise the price and quality, it’s just not good.

    I would recommend Tropics to a friend on a regular day with their typical menu, but never for a special event. They had a "Special" menu (which I can understand) , but it was dreadful. Everything came with a giant baked potato that tasted like it had been prepared the previous day and the same vegetables. The 5 selections on the menu seemed to be precooked and ready to go. My selection was beef wellington which came out black on the top and raw on the inside. The table next to me was also very disappointed. They hired additional wait staff that didn't have a clue of how to wait on tables. After 45 minutes the waitress came over and told us she forgot to put our order in..... What? Then the table next to us didn't get water or drinks until after they had finished their appetizer and had started their main course. I had to ask for silverware also. I had reservations for 8 and didn't get seated until 8:30..... The meal without appetizers, no desert, and no coffee took a total of 2 1/2 hours.... Ridiculous !!! Shame on who ever planned this. NEVER GO THERE FOR A SPECIAL EVENT OR HOLIDAY !!!!! They are unable to plan for any special events.

    We have had many outstanding meals at the Tropics, service is always great as is the ambiance. Made reservations for Valentine's dinner, showed up right on time. They were completely overbooked, four groups ahead of us, a 45-minute wait. Unacceptable to say the least, the staff seemed very overwhelmed and disorganized. Management really needs to take a look at how they accept reservations and who is running the reservation desk.

    We made a reservation for Valentines Day because we knew it would be very busy. We had to wait a few minutes but that was fine. We ordered our food after a few minutes and got our salads right away. Three minutes later our dinners came out and we were all still eating our salads. We complained to the person who brought out the dinners and asked for a manager. His reply was “ I am the manager”. We said then why would you bring our dinner out when you clearly can see we just started eating our salad. He said angrily do you want me to take them back. We said don’t bother and he walked away angrily. When the bill came they deducted 50% off the tab. That was nice but still we were disappointed in this visit.

    What a trip... The bar-side was jam packed with gentlemen who all just seemed so happy to be there. I wasn’t expecting much from the food since the bar was so much bigger than the restaurant side but it was actually a delicious dinner. The service was REALLY focused on making sure we were having a great experience.

    The food was good, as it was the last time I ate there in December, but the place was much more crowded, had to wait 20 minutes even with a reservation. I much prefer a busy restaurant. Glad to see business is booming once again. I'll be sure to make a booking with OpenTable every time I go there.

    Crowded with a about a 30 minute wait, 15 minutes with reservation. Loud atmosphere, resulting in strained dinner conversation. Food was average, and priced about the same. Service was aloof, likely due to busy night (Saturday).

    Have to say tonight was a mess for some reason as far as service was concerned. Not sure what was going on. Firstly getting seated was a chore. As soon as we sat a waiter appeared left bread and butter, no plates then disappeared never to be seen again. Ate the bread then another sever came and took the order, drinks and food, disappeared never to be seen again. I went to desk to ask what was going on. Third server, a young lady came and from then in was very attentive. Really was first bad experience there so u am thinking something was going on behind the scenes.
