This was generally pretty good. The food was fresh but the selections were not overwhelming either in number or creativity. They will make you Eggs Bendict, Omelets or eggs to order, which I recommend. Otherwise, it's the usual suspects. The bread is be fresh as is the fruit, and the service is good.

During my trip there were a couple of occasions wherein I had to grab a quick bite before heading into meetings. Equinox worked perfectly on these ocassions. I also had breakfast there everyday during my stay and it was good. Service is very prompt and the selection quite decent.

Accurate service and good range (without being too much) of food selection (including wine list). Do not miss to ask for the daily specials...they always have great suggestions

Top quality for starters and main dishes. All came as ordered and presented well. Wine selection is good too. Service is efficient, quite impersonal though. A smile always helps! Good place for business meals, at high prices though.

Came here for breakfast on the weekend whilst staying at the Renaissance. The selection is fairly small, but some tasty smoked fish and ham, and decent coffee. The fruit selection was nothing too special though, and the scrambled eggs weren't so good.

This restaurant specializes in USA and regional cuisine. If you find yourself eating here order one of the local dishes. I ordered the salmon steak which had NOT been deboned before cooking. I was told it was always prepared this way. Salmon should always be deboned before cooking. After 15 minutes I had a bread plate filled with bones and... More
