Despite a cafeteria-like setting, the food at this restaurant is excellent. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and taste of the beet salad and Salomon bowl.

By comparison to the average hotel this resides in, this restaurant is lovely. Attentive friendly staff. Lots of coffee and smiles. My wife went for the eggs benedict whilst I went for the chorizo omelette Both were beautiful and plentiful

Went for breakfast as the restaurant is part of The W Hotel. Bad coffee, warm orange juice, slow service and a very odd selection on the menu. Not worth it, lots of better places including the McDonald's right next door.
