We did not try any of the food, but this was our go to place to sit down and relax with a cocktail while enjoying the view. Hotel guests get preference on the window seating for the best view of the mountains possible.More

Just stopped in for lunch while at a conference. The food was very good but pricey. The atmosphere was great in a grand old hotel, service was average but they were very busy with a large lunch crowd.More

Great place to have a cocktail or snack in the afternoon with a great view. There were also some other lounges on the outside and on the patio, which also would be equally nice. Loved everything about this hotel and all the restaurants.More

Since my wife and I eat small portions, we usually split a meal when at a restaurant. What is your policy?
