The beef medallions were made to order. They were quite tender. The asparagus was very fresh and delicious. The french bread was sliced at an angle and fresh. Not very busy but the service was still outstanding.

This is the second time I have been to the restaurant. Service has been horrible both times. Lacking atmosphere, food is mediocre. The restaurant is in the Hilton, which is an aging property that is in major need of renovation.

Food was good but service is unpredictable. Food is very good depending but does not break through to excellent. Very pretty surroundings and very nice staff.

We had a school reunion there and everyone enjoyed themselves. That, by itself, deserves a "Very Good". The service was excellent, the food very good, the atmosphere pleasant. We plan on going back for the next one.

Breakfast meeting two separate days. Found the waitstaff very attentive and friendly. Buffet fresh and good choices. Would return to try lunch or dinner.

Some friends and I visited Allgauer's for brunch. There is an omelette station, seafood, pasta, salads, etc. The omelette station only had a few basic options such as onions, mushrooms, etc. The other breakfast options were bacon, sausage, French toast, diced potatoes, and Eggs Benedict....More

The easiest is to take 294 to Willow rd. Go west on Willow rd and take a left onto Sanders Rd by the BP station. Take a right onto Winkleman and the hotel is just a few blocks up on the right.
