The Second Floor has an interesting layout that accommodated a group luncheon and then later coffee and drinks at the bar. Manager checked on us personally. Loved the Shrimp and Grits!!! What a combination.

The Second Floor is a nice place to have a quiet drink with friends or unwind by yourself. The staff was friendly and low key. I had great service. I don't drink Scotch but they had a nice selection for those who do.

This small but consistent quality venue keeps me upbeat about breakfast each time I visit. The chef and the servers have been here for years and have always been courteous, attentive, and fast with a delicious espresso and fresh fruit.

I don't even drink scotch and whiskey and I was fascinated by the vast variety on display. My companion and I spent most of our lunch looking at the list and checking out names, prices, etc. AND the food is good.

Our meals were delicious; the atmosphere is conducive to lingering over a meal. The wine list is very nice; the whiskey list in gigantic. Best of all is the personnel, who make the bar and restaurant experience much more pleasurable. Tim has been at the Westin for 29 years and cannot be nicer or more helpful. We also enjoyed being...

The apps were good, but 50 minutes of waiting for the pretty simple "grilled cheese for grown ups" was disappointing. The server and manager kept apologizing for the delay, but the manager said "there was a problem with the bread". Basically we finally were served a Brie grilled cheese sandwich on white loaf bread. They comped most of the meal... More

The staff is sharp, polished, and polite. The drink menu is expansive. The seating area is beautiful and comfortable. It's a wonderful place to relax with a drink before dinner or after shopping. One of our favorites!

After a long day full of seminars and shopping in the galleria afterward, I peaked at the menu and was immediately impressed, especially when the host told me about the Market Fish special--whole branzino. I asked for a table near an outlet because my phone was dead, and the host showed me to a very comfortable upholstered cushion in the... More

I experienced an Omelet with a side of bacon. They were both perfectly prepared. I had a choice of egg white omelet or regular. There regular was terrific. The service was above average and my coffee cup was never empty. They even gave me a to go cup of coffee.

If you stay at the Westin don't miss The Second Floor. Cool bar atmosphere up front and beautiful dining area in the back. You can order a bottle of wine or champagne and finish it in room with dessert to go!
