I've never been fond of the food here. Aside from the breakfast buffet, which is reasonably good, the food is overpriced, delivered in small portions, and not well prepared. On my most recent visit, carrots were so undercooked I couldn't eat them, and the food came out cold. To top it all off, they've now decided to dump the jazz... More

The terrace layout is crowded by the pool area and some shrubbery, adverse affecting our desired view out over the Trent River and the attached marina. We dropped in for a beer and appetizer after boating,. The water side entry was hidden behind fences, our reception sketchy was sketchy and our server wasn't prepared to offer us a menu, forgot...

I ate there for breakfast while staying at the hotel. Very condescending matre'd. I couldn't find my breakfast pass and asked him if he couldn't please check with the front desk. He looked down at me and said no. I said I'll have to go back up to the room and empty my purse out and he said okay. He... More

Ordered the rib eye and it was just as ordered, juicy and tender. The baked potato was in sea salt and well done, the salad was fresh and crisp. Over all the dinner was great for the price and wait staff were very attentive.

Great food, wonderful view & amazing staff! It was worth the price. The setting is one for a couples' night out, family gathering a night out with friends. Plenty of food options & dessert was YUMMY!

While staying at the hotel I stopped by this restaurant to get something quick to eat. Ordered the skirt steak which came with salad and 2 sides. I was really surprised at how good it was. It had a great flavor and was very tender. The staff was very nice as well. Prices was good.

We had our parents 50th anniversary lunch at Christoph's on the Water. Even though it was lunch time, it was a very nice setting with white linen table cloths and place settings. The service and the food were awesome. They even let us bring in a cake, and gave us an extra table for it and the presents. We had... More

The breakfast buffet was very good and everything was fresh and hot. They had nice fresh fruit and a selection of fresh pastries along with regular breakfast fare.

Some food good, some not. We all ordered different items. We all tried it all, and some of it we regretted getting. Staff very nice.
