mpressed.... Seriously impressed. From the moment we were greeted at the entrance I knew (really, i did) that this place was going to be a winner.

We were escorted to our table by an gentle with a warm smiles and a wonderful "good evening." I was surprised though that there was only one other family there. Later Mo explained to me that this restaurant (located inside a hotel) was primarily a weekday place and the evening only starts at the bar before and after the parties at the hotel. None the less...lets get down to the food and beverages.

We did the price fixe dinner that included four courses AND wine & Coffee... At $40.00 a head you could not do any better anywhere!

After Gloria came over and explained the price fixe option we immediately dove in and ordered (we actually had a head start since we checked all this out on open table.) There is a corresponding picture to each item i mention here. I am going to make this simple:

Appitizers:
- Shrimp Cocktail - Three large shrimp well cooked as to texture and 'snap' with a good amount of tasty cocktail sauce
- Ahi Tuna Taco - Two large tortilla chips (providing a good crunch to sit underneath the perfectly seared tuna, and avocado

Soup:
- Onion soup - very fast (without a lot of beef broth taste). Lots of well cooked onions and some seriously good cheese on top of a very crunchy that point.

Dinner:
- boeuf bourguignon - This was a delightful twist on the classic french recipe... The pieces of meet were more bit sized and I did not get a over abundance of wine in the cause, BUT... This was delicious. It was served with a scoop of a creamy mashed-potatoes on top which was perfect. Both my wife and I finished the plate and both felt that we ate something really good.

It was nice that since it's a four course meal they don't give you an excessive amount of food. Each portion was perfect and totally satisfying

Dessert - Crapes with Ice Cream - This was the perfect way to end this meal... Soft crepes with a rich chocolate ice-cream.

So.... I give this restaurant a five star based on the following items

Greeting
Ambience
Very attentive service
Excellent food
Plenty of excellent food
Attention to service

There is no where I know that you can get a meal like this in a location like this and walk away for the price they charge.

I am definitely looking forward to my next visit (will be this month) to try some other items on the menu.

The menu choices sound good but I did not find the execution particularly good. I ordered the fruit crepes for breakfast but they were greasy which was odd. I have never had a greasy crepe but this was swimming in something greasy. As I was finishing, I was brought whipped cream. I hadn't missed it. An automatic 19% gratuity was added. I don't like that type of policy especially when it isn't a big table- either raise the prices and include service or leave it to the discretion of the diner. I supposed the hotel thought it would protect the server but in my case the server got gypped because I usually tip at least 20% when I dine solo. However, I was NOT going to leave a supplemental tip of 1%.

I stayed here on business. it is extremely convenient and within walking distance of many restaurants and the train to NYC. It was also clean and the rooms were spacious. The staff was very good as well. Make a reservation well in advance as it books up for both business and weddings which appears to a substantial portion of its business.

We hosted a business dinner here and the food ranged from mediocre to awful. The wine choices were reasonable, but the entrees were a big bust. There was no real seasoning on the chicken or beef dishes, and the side dishes of rice and/or mashed potatoes were overcooked.
