Stopped in there for dinner as we arrived to late to go out and ended up having two more meals there. The wait staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is absolutely brilliant. Good selection of beers and wine.

I ate several meals here as I was attending a seminarian the Hilton Mark. I ate the buffet once and ordered from the menu twice. Two of the meals were fine, one was not. All the wait staff serving me were not native speakers of English which in one case presented a problem. I ordered rice with one meal and... More

I think this place has great food , but I feel like the service could be a little better .It was the first time I tasted Sushi and it was good . I would surely go back to the restaurant but ONLY if I was staying at the hotel. It is not a place.

Below Average for Breakfast and Average for lunch. Very nice and friendly staff. It would be great if they had more options of restaurants.

I am staying at the Hilton, and arrived early (Sept 14) as my room was not ready. I decide to have a beer while I waited. I decided to sit at the bar, and settled in. I waited as the sushi chef worked 5 feet from me, I waited as several servers walked passed me, walk behind the bar, only... More

I was hoping for a light meal and wine before turning in. My only mistake in ordering the calamari is that it was such a huge serving. It was excellent and came with 2 tasty dipping sauces. The service was excellent, too.

The service was so-so, but the food was fantastic. I started with a sushi roll and didn't expect what I got, which was one of the finest sushi rolls I have ever had. I then ordered the goat cheese and mushroom lasagna. Wow! Perfect flavor, not too heavy. Definitely glad I came here.
