The restaurant has changed it's name to Garden Grille Restaurant and is located in the Hilton Garden Inn. Ryan on the waitstaff was quite helpful and I had a delightful meal.

I have stayed at this HGI several times while on business. I have had both breakfast and dinner. For breakfast, I like the option of choosing a cold buffet or a hot one (comes with made-to-order eggs dishes). For dinner, I usually just get the Harvest Chicken Salad. Their prices are no higher than other local restaurants. Service is always... More

Stayed here recently and had the flank steak. The meal was very good, for a restaurant. The service was adequate (clearly hotel-staff mentality). Overall adequate for guests but would not recommend for anyone who lives in the area.

I stay at the hotel and eat at the great American grill weekly. Annette is the best server hands down. She is always polite and helpful. Ryan is the bomb at dinner and makes the best lemon drop martinis!!!

We arrived at the Hilton Garden Inn River watch late and didn't feel like going out again after a long day. The Concierge said the food was good at the restaurant at the hotel. We went in and had Ryan welcome us. He was so nice and informative about the food. He made me an awesome Hendrick gin and tonic... More

Surprised it's nearby for the value. Keep up... More

My husband and I had an excellent meal with great service. Matt was our server and made great recommendations for dinner. The pork and half a chicken were both great. Good size portions with amazing flavor.

This is a hidden Gem in the L/A area for sure. Hidden away in the lobby of the Hilton Garden Inn, this place has excellent food. Kylie the Manager is very welcoming and knows how to treat her customers. Our bar tender Ryan was exceptional well. You need to check this place out if you live in L/A. The food... More
