The night didn't start well with a 15 minute wait for water and a 25 minute wait for a wine once seated and the place wasn't busy. Water was over poured on to the table by the server and nit cleaned up. The tables had no placemats or tablecloths and the serviettes were relatively thin paper which didn't look 5 star. The wine list was interesting and the menu looked adequate. Food order was sought without letting us know of any specials, asked about the soup - the waitperson had to go to find out. Oysters were warm and lacked freshness, felafel was a bit dry but OK. Had to go to seek the waitperson in the dining room due to lack of attention to ask to buy more wine as the focus was more on setting up tables for brekfast than serving dinner guests. The wine delivered (a red at $99 was two years younger than stated on the wine list, it was not offered to taste first). The main order was incomplete because the order hadn't been written down and the sides were thus delivered when the mains were 3/4 finished as they had to be perpared after the food was delivered to the table. Spatchcock was really good, lamb rack was OK, and the accompanying jus was very tasty. I had ordered my lamb as rare but the Matre D came back later to say that this wasn't possible as it was sous vide fist and thus needed to be served medium. The roast vegetbales were more of a garnish and luke warm. Only one dessert ordered, an affogato that looked good, coffees were tasty. On the way out saw a poster for a $99 champagne and 10 oysters and I asked about it (as we would have ordered this if we had known there was a special) and was told that it had expired and wasn't available, the poster should have been taken down. When I asked them to check it was still in the "system" and this avaialble "I guess". If it wasn't for the quality of some of the food would have been a rating of 1. I don't believe of the dozens of Marriotts we have stayed and dined at any have been this poor.
