Foods are astonishing! Very delicious! Not only that - their serving for a single meal will feed 2 people. Nice ambience. Friendly and very helpful waiters. Thumbs up!

I have frequented this place many times over the years. The bartenders are always polite and friendly. The drinks are above average and the prices tolerable for a hotel bar. They have a nice happy hour for drinks but they did eliminate the food portion...More

Rude bartender (the male). Warm Chardonnay. No food. Confusing pricing. Limited choices. Signature cocktails weren't very good. I tried them twice with no improvement.

The food was good. The drinks were good. The same Chef prepared the food in the Malabar as the hotel restaurant. It was very comfortable and the service was good.

loved the service and the food....service was a bit too slow for my taste but it was good service. Also, the decor was just to die for. I felt like I was in a city like NYC or Chicago. The appeal is definitely there. Beautiful...More

The food was awesome, especially the fish and chips and braised short ribs. The bartender Sean made the best old-fashioneds I have had other that Peche in Austin.

Dinner meeting. Wine list ok and nice red. Had the salmon - was slightly overdone for my taste. But overall nice place - will have four more meetings here this year so I will update this
