Perhaps this review is not fair to the restaurant since there was a fixed menu on Mother’s Day. It was an unusual menu at night offering two brunch offerings and a few plain entrees. The Boef Bourguignon lacked distinct taste. The complementary champagne was of...More

The main dining room is quiet, beautiful, great food and excellent service. Lunch and dinner will be a winner. Prices are hefty but it is worth the cost for those special occasions, or business events. While on the property don’t miss the Audubon Bar! More...More

I could see that there was avocado, bacon and turkey on my sandwich, but the only discernible flavor was the weird sauce on it. While holding it to eat, the whole thing turned to paste as the roll disintegrated. I would have then used a...More
