New menu is great. Four of us had meals and all were cooked perfectly. Mussels are amazing. Bison medallion was succulent. Everything is made in house.

On a Friday evening, the restaurant was almost empty. The service was outstanding: a lady who obviously loves her job and does everything to make her customers happy. That was the highlight. The mushroom soup was ok, not bad but nothing to rave about. The...More

Hi - my name is Nadine Alves -- I visited the Royalton the May after it was opened by myself and had the most amazing, pampered, luxurious holiday ever. I'm traveling to the Royalton for the second time on Jan. 4 for a week - this time with my husband --- I want to show him what a luxury holiday is like --- we will be celebrating our 35 wedding anniversary. - can't wait.!! I was wondering if your Chef is still Sebastian? He was the chef when I was there and he did an amazing job -- please let me know .
