We enjoyed a buffet breakfast here each morning. A good start to the day. Good choice of hot and cold food, more than enough choice and very friendle and attentive staff.

Have eaten here a few times before seeing shows at the Opera House. Food is great, could possibly improve the pizza though, it's a little tastless

We had vistors from overseas and since they missed the NYE fireworks, we thought it would be nice to visit the site of the fireworks. Unfortunately we chose the wrong restaurant, the Opera Bar.
We started with some shrimp and crab spring rolls which turned out to be pork or something worse. My wife who is allergic to pork was vomiting within 5 minutes. We did what we could to comfort her, as she didn't want to upset everybody's evening.
I had ordered a Corona, which came with a lemon slice. I politely told the waitress that Corona was drank with lime, to which I received a very Eastern Euorpean or Russian response that 'we always serve it with lemon'. I suggested that just because they serve it with lemon, that does not make it right. An unpleasant interchange occurred, and she suggested she would tell the manager, which I suggested was an excellent idea.
I had a very average cold salmon salad. I have little idea why I was expecting a beutifully grilled piece of salmon on my $21.00 salad, other than the fact in my many travels, I had never seen cold cooked salmon on a salad before. it was very average.
I would not suggest anybody do anything other than have a drink, but not Corona beer.
