Great food and excellent service. The restaurant would have more ambience if it was a bit more secluded from the hotel.

I used a coupon from "Local Flavor" a app/website offering discounts. We ordered the NY steak and the lobster. Everything was perfect, the steak was done correctly, the lobster was done just right, not mushy, and not leathery. I had the creamed spinach, some of the best I've ever had.

We stayed at the hotel and had breakfast on a Sunday morning. The atmosphere was relaxed, service was excellent, and the food was very good. Highly recommend.

The Christmas buffet at the Hilton was the best in town. A little bit of everything for all discerning tastes. We go to all the holiday buffets at the Hilton and have tried others but we always come back to the HIlton

My family stayed at this hotel right after Christmas, and unfortunately didn't have a chance to eat a full meal in the restaurant, but decided to eat desserts there one night. We had the chocolate torte and the orange tart with blueberry compote, and they were both delicious! The chocolate torte was a little too rich IMO, but still good.... More

Crowded, noisy, bad music, and weak food. We went for Christmas dinner, a buffet. It was $50 per person plus a 20% service charge, minus a discount for any seniors, with one alcoholic drink per person. I've never liked the idea of a restaurant in the lobby, and it was crowded on Christmas day. One of the neighboring tables was... More

This is the restaurant in the Hilton on the waterfront. While one doesn't find excellently prepared foods, typically, in this type of restaurant, this one is an exception. The dining room is a small space off to the side of the main lobby, BUT, the food is spectacular. We got, kind of dragged, their about a month ago and we... More

We were staying in the Hilton and since this is their restaurant that's where we had breakfast. The service was good, the waiter was pleasant and the food was good.

The buffet was overpriced and not all that good. The waiter added 20% tip on our bill without asking. We served ourselves and I think 20% was way to much.
