This place is convenient if you are staying in the hotel, serves good food (by Marriott standards), and offers a nice drink selection (again for a Marriott). Service is attentive and professional. I enjoyed cocktails and a Thai shrimp rice bowl during my stay.

I had the pleasure of having authentic "SriLankan Crab Cake Sandwich" during my last week stay at Marriott Melville. Chef Kai's experience was very revealing in the beautiful presentation of the dish. Authentic Taste of the Crab cake sandwich proved me that Chef Kai created that dish from his heart. It was so wonderful. I travel and eat out very... More

Scott at the bar was very helpful and entertaining. He suggested a shot for my aunt that she just can't stop talking about. She loved it. Thank you Scott

Very good food, beautiful decor and attentive service made this a great dining experience. It's a little pricey, but you have to expect that at an upscale hotel. Looking forward to going back.

Loved the decor of the restaurant. Nice large impressive booths, a fireplace with sofas around it, smaller bar tables, etc....Had appetizers one night...pricy and just ok. Had the breakfast buffet on a Saturday morning. We were never offered a menu nor was anything explained to us. The buffet runs just about $20.00 with tax. I really don't want to spend... More

The fried calamari was tender and delicious. I was very nicely surprised. I ordered a rigatoni entree and the pasta was falling apart which is a sure sign that it wasn't cooked to order. A really amateur mistake. Overall I wouldn't go out of my way to dine here but it's decent hotel food. Service was very good.

Very pricey! Average food. I only tried them for dinner. The ambience of the location is nice with flat screens in the booths and a nice fireplace in the middle which was cool. Other than that, really not missing much.

Completely successfully renovated. Great place to relax, very cozy, warm and good food. You can choose to sit at the bar, at a chair or at the fireplace seating, very nice. There are also separate work places. Very well done. Quite expensive however.

Had lunch at this place while staying at the hotel. Sat at the bar and the two people working were friendly, for NY standards lol. Food was not bad at all. Fair priced as well as some hotels just go crazy with what they charge. Burger was good, soup of the day also had great flavor and drinks were not... More
