It was good. Not great. Service was a little slow but well executed Appreciated reasonable wine recommendation. Food all good but not over the top. Very dark.

The Roast never fails. Exquisite food, unique and delicious. Service beyond expectation. Had a private party, catered-to was an understatement. The creativity of the best of all chefs keeps your palette salivating! No where else to experience a carnivore-lovers menu.

My suggestion is to call them directly. They do have at least one private room but I'm not sure how many it holds.

The parking is valet as a part of the Westin Book Cadillac hotel. $10 and if they park you in front of the building, a nice tip is customary.

Yes, there is a fitness room and small pool. Good luck getting out the bed because it's was the best sleep I have ever had at a hotel.
