Convenient if you are staying at Meridien. But quite expensive for the ambience/ experience they offer. Food was average. Service was good. But many better choices in the area.

Located within the Central Square location of the Le Meridien hotel, Sidney's is at best, a convenient spot. I have eaten at here at various times over the past six years. The service continues to be notoriously slow and food just average. It's a real...More
