The filet, salmon, and other selections were very good -- private dining room was extra special for our meeting

The service was slow; we were nearly ignored, in the first of our two meals spent there. Without being over, wait staff made it clear they would have preferred we tried the buffet, rather than sitting in the bar area. The food was good, but not worth waiting for.

food is prepared in unique ways but plentiful and very reasonably priced. Variety is limited but designed to satisfy any palette. You will enjoy.

Buffet lunch was ok. Pasta salad had too much oil, corn on the cob was dry. Salads were great. I did not try the soups or meats.

We stopped in on a Sunday to sit at the bar, watch some football and order appetizers. The place was quiet, but a few other people came in. We ordered appetizers which were very good (shrimp cocktail and bruschetta). The two gentleman next to us ordered the steaks and they smelled and looked so good, we shared the dish. We... More

My family and I enjoyed the breakfast at Vita. The omelette was cooked to perfection. My daughter enjoys her waffle as well. There are great views of the Courtyard and the service was great. I was very pleased.

We found Vine while traveling through the area. A lovely setting outside and very comfortable and welcoming inside. We were greeted by the owner who came by during dinner to "check in." Four perfectly prepared goat cheese ravioli was a great appetizer. Also, poached pear salad was delicious. The rib eye steak, grilled to perfection, was the best I have... More

Lunched here during a seminar at a neighboring facility that was fully booked and glad we did. Lunch buffet offered a varied selection, was much quicker than a sit down meal (we only had 60 mins. including travel time), and service was attentive and quick. I had a chopped salad that the chef chopped in front us at the prep... More

We ate twice here in bar area. Wonderful staff, decent food selection and quite tasty. Often hotel food is less than exciting but we've enjoyed the food here. It's nice to have a glass of wine outside in the courtyard, too.

The desserts at the buffet are great! The breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets are comprehensive, with mostly excellent and often-changing food choices. In my experience, very much above average for a hotel restaurant. The staff is generally friendly (some are less friendly than others), and definitely efficient and effective. Good to great service overall. I was surprised at the relatively... More
