Nobody knows what they are doing. It was hectic and the food took forever. It's in the Westin but not managed by the hotel. My understanding is that it is outsourced. A lot of staff just stamding around and not taking care of the customers....More

The vegetables were great! Steak not so much for $27.00! I asked to get the meal to go and they were very nice. Suggested I go up to my room and they would call when it was ready.

You mention that you have fresh "grab and go" option for breakfast. What about a nice, "sit-down" breakfast for those staying at your hotel ? Do you have a breakfast menu ? Thank you !

Yes, they have a nice breakfast menu for a leisurely sit down breakfast with all the "classic" NY breakfast options (eggs all styles, pancakes, bagels etc.).
