We weren't expecting much walking into a restaurant inside the Hilton Garden Court. We were pleasantly surprised. I ordered a steak salad, which was wonderful. The service was pretty good, too.

More like a typical free (but not) breakfast. Wasn't impressed at all. Breads, cereals, fruit, eggs, etc. same as what you usually find. but you will pay for this one.

Had breakfast whilst staying at the Hilton. Staff are cheerful and service was excellent, the lady making the omelettes did a fabulous job of whipping some up for us for breakfast in no time. One of our team had waffles and said they were great...More

It's a nice menu but since it's inside a downtown hotel, it's a little pricey. The service is excellent and the biscuits and butter are to die for. While not super extensive, the wine list is quite nice.

We are staying in the Hilton Garden Inn and this is their restaurant. I'm always hesitant eating hotel food but their dinners have been really good. If you are staying here give it a shot....we like it.

We had room service, and were a little worried about what the food would taste like. We were actually pleasantly surprised. We ordered mac & cheese, mashed potatoes, Caesar salad, and buffalo wings. All were delicious. Definitely will be back.

I had stayed at the hotel that this restaurant is in before, and had dined at The Grist Mill at least one evening during that prior visit. I recall a somewhat overcooked pork chop, a Caesar salad that was mediocre, and an overall average experience....More

Convenient because it was in the hotel. We had cocktails in the bar our first night, good scotch, good service. We had breakfast buffet in the morning. It was fairly standard for a basic hotel buffet. The service was fast, friendly and outstanding.

The breakfast had a decent selection but for the price was somewhat simple. Very busy and very loud. Drink at nice were calm. Night waitstaff was super happy to please.

Delicious food Great service. It was not very crowded when we went. We were surprised expected to be a crowd since food is so good. I had the Papardelle bolognese And tried my husband,s "ridiculously good " ribs and they lived up to their billing.
