Not sure why this restaurant isn't busier at lunch. We went on a Sunday afternoon when there was a concert going on outside the Civic Center and it was practically empty. Had a nice outside table and ordered their lunch special for $15 each. What...More

Great restaurant right in the hotel. Nice decor and wonderful food. Menu inspired by Chef Jose Garces, unfortunately, the restaurant and the chef are parting ways later this month. But, I am sure the new menu will provide a memorable dinning experience

The shrimp ceviche was the best thing we ordered, and the service was great: attentive and helpful. But presentation was neither innovative nor refined and the food overall did not seem worthy of a top chef. For example, the nachos were gloppy and ordinary, garnished...More
