I hosted a dinner for 14 people. The hotel happily and easily accommodated me when I added extra people. All of our food was excellent and we loved the three-course menu. Look for Joseph he was fantastic!

Had the 3 course special they were offering. My husband's steak and my lamb were cooked to perfection. A lovely end to a day of moving our son into his new place at UT. Waitstaff was incredibly nice and attentive.

We ate here for breakfast twice. The buffet offered excellent choices and variety. Enjoyed the french toast, waffles, bacon, and yogurt with granola. Some selected menu choices of eggs or omelets. Wait service did well to keep our coffee and water glasses filled.

This restaurant is absolutely beautiful. It is elegant, comfortable - I could believe I was in Pasadena. We had brunch on a Sunday and it was so pleasant and quiet - they earn 5/5 for ambience all day long. The buffet was delicious, fresh eggs...More
