Sunday Brunch is delightful; the food went on forever and ever! There was an omelet table, a crepe table, fruit table, pastries, pancakes, scrambled eggs, a seafood table, a dessert table, bagel station, and I might have missed one or two. Our waiter saw that I had brought my own maple syrup, and he brought out the gallon jug in... More

I don't normally hail hotel restaurants as places to go. I'm really happy here. The value. The service. The food. All really good. Not to spoil a hidden gem, but would hate the to lose one.

We attended a reunion weekend and stayed at the Redwood City Sofitel, eating most meals in the restaurant beside the lounge. We found the food tasty and well-prepared. We particularly appreciated the availability of gluten free options, as we are both gluten free. We ordered a number of egg dishes, not only at breakfast, but one for an evening light... More

Bay 223 is a French inspired Califirnia cuisine overlooking Redwood Shores Lagoon. We had dinner on a relaxing Sunday night. I was especially impressed with the presentation of the food, served on wonderful plates and interesting sauce cups. We began by choosing a selection of bread with butter and an amazing pesto spread. We than had the tuna tartare appetizer.... More

Arrived at the Sofitel Hotel after a long day of travel from the East Coast. Just downstairs, Bay 223 was like a welcomed oasis. We enjoyed a lovely roasted beet and goat cheese salad, and two entrees- sole and salmon- both expertly prepared. The ambiance is calming and serene. A full menu is available at the bar. Try the wine... More

I had an omelette or scrambled eggs for breakfast each day because they were simply the lightest fluffiest I had every enjoyed. GF pasta with grilled chicken for dinner along with a filling salad for lunch.

It was convenient, it was beautiful, but it didn't rock my world when I ate there. Maybe I'm spoiled from living in a resort community with very high quality cuisine, but I expected more value for the cost. Service was great.

I had dinner and 2 breakfasts at the Bar 223. Service was consistently good - friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. The food was good and there was good choice on the menu. The restaurant has a friendly atmosphere and isn't intimidating if you are in your own. Very good for a hotel restaurant with extra effort to make people feel comfortable.
