I went specifically to hear the jazz group, so one detractor was that the band was set up in front of a door to the balcony, which was used by patrons when the band was on break. As a fellow musician, this caused me some sympathetic anxiety for the equipment, but thankfully nothing was knocked over.
I had the ostrich...which was amazing! The portioning seemed small-ish for the price when compared to chain restaurants, but that is to be expected considering its gourmet nature...and I did not leave hungry. Thanks for a very enjoyable experience!

Had the lamb steak. The steak was passable, although oddly overdone on one end. The pilaf was dry; the onions under-done. Service was remarkably good, however, as was the band.

Service was great and the food was different but excellent. On Friday night and Saturday morning we sat outside on the porch with a lovely view of the hills of Augusta. On Friday night there was a jazz trio with singer. Nice touch. On Saturday night for our anniversary, we were treated to free champagne. The buffet breakfast on Sunday was okay but not as good as previous meals. I would recommend this place highly. We stayed at the hotel for two nights.

Please note that if you make a reservation for 9:30a on a Sunday that the breakfast buffet closes at 10:00 a.m. so if your server doesn't come to your table until 9:45a to take your order, you're cutting out some time - especially if the omelet and waffle station are super slow or if they're no longer re-filling certain items. All that said, the food was great. But, it would have nice if the hostess had told us the buffet closes at 10a.

Little details were missing. Wine and water glasses were soiled to start with. We didn't get the proper cutlery for coffee and dessert. Little details that would have make a difference between a 4 and a 5.

We dont get a date night often and we recieved a gift card to the PI restaurant. We got there and about 3 of the hostess' were talking to each other and waited to finish their conversation before addressing us. We were seated and Candace served us right away. I asked for a pomegranate martini and it was horrible. It wasnt mixed well and I think was only alcohol. Candace never came to check and see how I liked my drink. When our food came out my husbands steak was closer to well done than med rare. Again, she never came to check on us. My husband asked another waiter for salt, and he never brought it. I got up and went inside and grabbed salt for my husband. My food tastes like it came out of a freezer bag. It was a horrible experience all around. We were extremely dissappointed.

Horrible experience. The two tables by us got up and left prior to eating. Very under staffed. Completely unacceptable for the week of The Masters. Food over cooked. Sat us in a ballroom with drapes closed. I never got my cocktail until my husband got up and went to bar and ask for it. We had to ask for water, someone to take our drink order , and then bill. Numerous items on menu were not available. Would not recommend. We came in from Texas and should have eaten at Waffle House.

Restaurant has been temporarily relocated to the floor below as renovations are happening upstairs. The offered buffet was not nearly as nice, appetizing or extensive as my last visit upstairs but the price was still quite high. Ambience modest and not at all distinctive. All in all, a very mediocre experience at an inflated price. Would not recommend.

It was good food. But at this price point I would expect real creamer for my coffee instead of creamer cups. We had no spoons to stir our coffee and table was slightly sticky.
Overall the attention to detail wasn’t there.

We are from South Louisiana, where any and all Brunches mean bottomless Bloody Marys or Mimosas. We were surprised that none came with our $29.99 buffet. The buffet was Interesting and delicious. I mixed my Mac n cheese w my cream grits for perfect cheesy grits. The omelette was excellent. The view from the veranda on a warmer day would be excellent. I’d come back for that.

We had Christmas Dinner here. Very disappointing. Our server was kind but COMPLETELY overwhelmed. For our 5:30 p.m. reservation, the restaurant was out of multiple appetizers, entrees and ice tea! How does a restaurant run out of ice tea?

The server forgot to put our appetizer in which then was rushed and came out burned. My salmon entree was cold.

The couple next to us left in frustration when they were never greeted by a server.

On top of everything, I just received a note from Open Table indicating I was a no-show. Clearly, the hostess never noted we were there. Shaking my head...

We won't go back.

Disappointed this trip. You could tell some of the entrees had been reheated and wasn’t fresh. It truly was disappointing especially after eating here previously when it was done right.
But the restaurant itself was beautiful as always and decorated for the holidays. Can’t be the ambiance.

We were excited to see the renovated Partridge Inn dining area and it looked great. We had a very nice waiter and the wine and macaroni appetizer was very good. However, all three different main courses were not good (very pedestrian) and fairly pricy. Not sure I would come back unless for drinks and appetizer only.

Dead city USA for a Sunday brunch. Ashley was the best for greeting and serving us, that's why the 5 star for service, it would behoove them to charge a little more, serve better food and make it a champagne brunch. The omelette station was good, the fruit bowl was pitiful and an insult to Hilton.
They need to serve the locals the same way they do for Masters Week in Augusta.
