We went to the Oppidan dining room on New Years Day as it has been a family tradition. The experience was very disapppointing, the food was mediocre at best.I realize the hotel is under new management and may not be aware of the history of this dining room. The Oppidan was formerly know as the Cabot Club, and was one... More

Very good coffee. Very nice server. Very expensive for ho hum breakfast. The redeeming quality of this restaurant is the staff. Their smiles and attitude took the sting out of the bill.

We ate here twice on our recent visit and the level of service was not the same. One night the waiter was prompt, informative and told us about the specials.

We stayed at this hotel and the food in the dining room is excellent. Serving staff are efficient and very friendly. They make you feel at home and they make great suggestions. They added to our wonderful visit to St John's.

We had breakfast here one morning. No one greet us at the door so we sat ourselves. We had the buffet which was your typical hotel offering. Not terrible but not great. Also it was a little pricey for a morning buffet.

We came for a quick breakfast, but our waiter seemed clueless about the dishes on the menu, I had to send a search party out for him. The food was okay, and hotel expensive.

Ate here two days ago. We tried the seafood pasta which was not what I expectedo but still good. I was expecting lobster stuffed ravioli but it was a spinach ravioli with a few pieces of lobster, 3 tiger shrimp and quite a few scallops. It was still tasty though. However the steak was disgusting! It was not a strip... More
