Delicious food separated into 3 portion size sections. I had the pork chops which was cooked evenly, but still tender, paired with pardnips. Best part was the desserts though. Couldn't choose, so went with the server recommendations. Beignets had a lot of unique flavor combinations. Hot chocolate was had a subtle savory feel even though it was a drink. Peanut butter s'mores was creamy, salty, and surprisingly light.

Overpriced. Stilted unfriendly service. Great salad. Good entrees. Albacore and Cod. Would not recommend.

This was a retirement gift to a friend and I decided to treat her to a nice meal in a special place. We had a leisurely lunch of the risotto and, of all things, a burger. The burger was topped with foie gras. I would recommend either dish to anyone. The star was the soup of the day. Parsnip with green apple, which, thank goodness, came in a large portion.

We will be back when I retire.

The food and service were both very good. However just a few general comments - the bread that was brought to the table had clearly been pre-cut and left to sit for a while as the exposed side had hardened. Additionally, the food cooled to quickly after being served. Preheated plates and cutting the bread per order are small but important details to address the customers overall experience.

Our waiter, Yassine K., was superb. He tried so hard to make our dining experience special, and he was totally endearing. I felt that we were all treated like royalty. I would recommend the restaurant--whose food was quite good, especially for a hotel restaurant--to anyone, just because of Yassine's superlative service. Make him the manager!

My third visit and each time I am surprised. Although busy, the service was great and our lunches appeared quickly. The food was off-the-charts - I thought I was back in Southern France. Our lunches appeared quickly and given our time constraint was a gift. The experience was so pleasant we canceled our afternoon commitment and stayed until 2 PM. BTW the wine by the glass was awesome.

The service was good but slow. One of the servers could not seem to stop spilling and dropping food and drink on diners-including my dining companion: she should have been sent home.
My omelette was lukewarm when it arrived. The rest of the meal was lovely.

Dinner date with my wife before Benaroya Hall. Scrambled Egg as appetizer and S’Mores for dessert are always a must. Wine by the glass list is much better quality than most restaurants. Black Cod for my entrée was superb.

The staff is attentive and fun.

We will be back.

Our server waa impatient and rude in her words and body language the entire experience. Recommendation to this female server with long dark hair, slightly older, leave your frustrations at the door before your shift.

The busser gentleman was amazingly kind, courteous, helpful and happy.

Very attentive and thoughtful waiter who provided very personalized service. Although we had a reservation, there were no regular tables for a prolonged period so we had to sit at a fairly uncomfortable small bar/table but the food and waiter made up for it!

This was a mixed experience. The sturgeon was pretty good, but the Parisian gnocci mainly greasy and with little taste. The starters were main stream quality. Overall the price was too high for what we got.

Sunday brunch was not very good. The crepe was very good, my Eggs Bene were OK, the greasy bacon was good, but our drinks arrived 40 minutes after we ordered them, the home fries were soggy with grease, the food arrived 15 minutes apart (hers and mine) and 35-40 minutes after ordering. I expect better from Loulay, we've enjoyed lunch and dinner there. The server was great, it's a management issue.

Beautiful meal in a lovely, art-deco dining room! We were a party of 2 couples, arriving at 8pm on a Friday night (definitely needed that reservation). We were seated right away in a white-leather booth on the main floor. The waitress was helpful and really followed the rhythm of the table. One of our party had a hard time making up her mind, but the waitress was patient and did not rush us in the least. We shared a lovely charcuterie board and the famous crab fritters. Two people chose the vibrant beet risotto with crab, I had the amazing sea scallops (seared, on a bed of leeks), and the fourth person enjoyed the hearty pork chop on greens. Such quality food and service. And the best French 75 cocktail I ever tasted :-)
