A group of us went here for lunch during work. After being told by an annoyed bar tender a few times that a server would be over to us shorty, we finally received a server 20 minutes after sitting down. We asked what the soup of the day was, and the server was not aware and said he would check. That took 5 minutes. We finally ordered and waited another 45 minutes for our average tasting food! The server then said he would come back and fill up our waters, he arrived with our water when we were already done eating and needed to leave asap. The food was expensive but ok. This is NOT a place to go if you are on any time restraints at all!

I was impressed by this grand hotel which was at one time the center of downtown life with another name back in the 60's and 70's. The name has changed and the clientale but the food is excellent still. Located in the middle of downtown Cleveland near all major attractions. Try it.

Thank Kenneth T

The buffet was good, the omelet station was great. The selection was very limited but the quality was tops. What really put them over the top was the service. The service was outstanding. I would go back in a second just for the long forgotten expectation of how a restaurant should be run.

We had breakfast here twice because it is right in the hotel, on the 2nd floor near the lobby and check-in counter. It has an upscale feel and yet still comfortable to get a good breakfast and coffee to start the day. A couple of the windows have a nice view of Public Square like you are a live web cam for people watching. The food was very good and quite a bit better than your average hotel breakfast. Our first waitress was OK and maybe she was mildly annoyed by multiple people asking if they had fresh-squeezed orange juice, as they once did, but now they don't. The second server we had was great and she reminded us that we asked to order a meal to go for my mother who stayed up in the room. The service would have been 4 stars if it was only the first day and waitress but definitely a 5 star with her. I also ordered the buffet the first morning and had pancakes the second. Both were good and nothing to complain about. Couldn't have been any more convenient, except maybe room service, but they do that too so that is an option. Hope to visit again soon.

We ate breakfast here twice and thoroughly enjoyed it! The food was delicious, the restaurant is attractive, and the wait staff very helpful and pleasant. Alba was my personal favorite! I will definitely be back!
