I hate to eat at Hotel Restaurants, but this one was surprisingly good! This location is attached to the Marriott Courtyard and the Hilton Garden Inn, which share the same owner. I had a Chicken Sandwich, with a squash and zucchini side. Service was quick,...More

We were reluctant to try this restaurant after reading the reviews online but were pleasantly surprised with both our meal and the service. They had a reasonably varied menu. The food was cooked perfectly. We would eat here again next time.

The food was very good but would have been way to expensive had the hotel not given us a voucher off the cost.

Pasta and shrimp, I am dreaming about it. Drinks are above average, nice selection of craft beers on tap. Service was pleasant, attentive and well timed. Flat bread app was really good, a special one each day. Great prices and interesting decor. Loved it.

Very very expensive. High priced meals with low price tastes. Nothing special about what they serve. Basic frozen meals re-heated and put on a fancy plate. Not worth the time or trouble. Next to over priced conference center and hotels. Not worth your time. Very...More
