    The food was great, although service was a bit slow. Took a long time for our plates to be cleared/ for the bill. Also, it was sort of expensive (roughly $40 for a brunch plate and coffee with tip).

    I tried to walk in and the hostess claimed that there was no availability despite there being many tables empty and lots of availability on Open Table. I asked her if it would be easier to make a reso through OT and she said “I guess”. I proceeded to book through OT and was then seated. The restaurant had enough space to accommodate guests throughout the two hours I spent there. The rest of the staff was very kind. I’m not sure why the hostess was trying to deny me service but it left me with an extremely poor experience. She was cold, rude, and lacked any sense of hospitality.

    Beautiful dining area and good service, the steak was underwhelming and when we told the server we didn’t like it he said it’s just the cut of meat, they also had automatic 18% gratuity which didn’t reflect how we enjoyed our dinner.

    I didn't particularly like this restaurant. The food selection is very limited and I don't quite understand the concept? We ordered some basic food (salad & Mac & cheese) and it wasn't very good, and certainly not at that price. I would not recommend this place. The service was good, this would be a 2 star restaurant at best. The Lounge on the 6th floor is way better.

    We came for Winterlicious. Was a little disappointed that the lunch options weren't also included in the dinner menu. I had the steak frites which I loved. Steak was cooked perfectly and the peppercorn sauce was delicious! My friend ordered the cornflake burger from the all day menu and he was disappointed with the breading and felt the chicken could have been juicier. He ended up eating it without the bun. In any case, ambiance, presentation and plating was amazing. We were very impressed. A great hotel restaurant and bar. I would definitely recommend.

    They told my boss she didn't have a reservation. They were not paying attention when she was talking to them when she gave them her first and last name. It was also written in the booking on Open Table.

    Excellent service from Raj. Food was tasty but portion was SO small. I've never had such a small grilled cheese sandwich which should be called Grilled Cheese bite! Also found the menu very limited. The ambience is good for business meetings with the tables spread out nicely.

    I visited public school yesterday with my sister for lunch and ordered the crispy chicken sandwich. When it arrived and I took my first few bites. I realized that the chicken was pink inside and I couldn’t tell if it was cooked through. I lost my appetite for it after those bites it just tasted off. When I told the server, I was not a fan and thought that it was undercooked. He told me over and over that it was broiled. Though I didn’t eat it, he still charged me. I’ve worked fine dining for six years and anytime that a customer says that they don’t like the food and they don’t eat the food the server asks if you want something else and most times it’s taken off the bill. I ate 2 bites of my meal and was charged $28 for it. Other than that everything was great!

    Very nice location and lovely staff. I thought the food was very average, not at the level of the staff and interior. More like a diner. Expensive for what it is, I guess you are paying for the location. Overall we enjoyed it and the coffee was lovely and the service was 10/10 but the food could be better for sure.

    Do not recommend. We didn’t realize it was a hotel restaurant, which falls on us. Friendly staff. Decent lighting. Highly overpriced. Really poor food. Service not attentive. The server was pleasant enough but we had to ask for drinks and the removal of plates. In an absolute pinch, maybe if you’re a hotel guest, fine perhaps. But definitely would not return or recommend to anyone.
