Staying at the Heldrich two weeks out of the past six has made me a connoisseur of the local eating establishments. I have tried a bunch and I actually favor Christopher's Bar at the end of a long day of work. You can eat light (excellent beet and burrata salad, grilled fennel and asparagus with walnuts and a balsamic dressing... More

Food was OK, a little pricey, atmosphere comfortable, Service was OK, Dinning room needs a little something.

I went there for breakfast, and the service was awful. It was difficult to even get their attention so that I could have coffee and juice, and you basically had to figure out the buffet for yourself, which was fairly limited in choices. On the other hand, I had food in the bar the previous evening, and I believe the... More

Understaffed. Should never have to ask your "waiter" for coffee re-fills, more cream, etc. Breakfast buffet was what you would expect at any major chain hotel. The room itself has no charm. I won't be back.

A restaurant in a gorgeous hotel in the center of downtown New Brunswick across the street from the theaters - must be PACKED on a weekend night, right? That should have been my first clue... Nestled in a great location in a fabulous hotel, you would expect this restaurant to be managed better. Many of the surrounding restaurants are booked... More

You can have a very nice dinner with 2 appetizers. The main courses are quite large and you need to be hungry or take 1/2 back to the room. Limited choice of beer with attentive service.

Restaurant in the Heldrick was fine but unexceptional. Buffet was upscale "usual" though well made and with healthy choices. Felt like a very high end cafeteria. Staff was not particularly helpful or friendly
