This restaurant is probably best for breakfast or lunch. But I certainly enjoyed the hamburger with a fresh brioche bun. And the service was as attentive as you would want.

The restaurant serves a good quality continental breakfast. The service personnel are pleasant. Although the menu did not change from day to day, it was good.

The breakfast buffet is normal as can be for a hotel, especially Marriotts if you're familiar with the breakfast offerings in other hotels.Very expensive for what you get...

This restaurant is excellent for the business traveler who wants something light for dinner the day of arrival. The menu is varied from appetizers , to salads and entrees. The host and wait staff is excellent, particularly, Caesar. He is an excellent ambassador for Mariott. Will definitely go to Mez next trip.

We had a very enjoyable dinner here on our Last Night of our week's stay at the hotel. As others have said the menu is limited. But the quality of the food is very good and the service is excellent. In our opinion this was the best service that we received during our week visit to DC.

The restaurant does not have a big menu but they serve an ok meal. I had the chicken sandwich. The burger looked a little small.

The service was very good, and the eggs Benedict were done to a turn. The view of the pool / spa area was interesting. We were curious as to whether the seemingly cluttered area was due to some project, otherwise the view(?) wasn't memorable.

After a long day walking on the mall our expectations were not to high. The Crab Cakes were good and came with a good salad. There was no one to seat us when we arrived and we had to wait for a few minutes. Once the host arrived we were pleasantly seated and he had no problems allowing us to... More
