I don't even drink scotch and whiskey and I was fascinated by the vast variety on display. My companion and I spent most of our lunch looking at the list and checking out names, prices, etc. AND the food is good. Scott Gottlieb formerly was chef-owner at at outstanding fancy gourmet restaurant Bijou. He seems to have hit his stride... More

Our meals were delicious; the atmosphere is conducive to lingering over a meal. The wine list is very nice; the whiskey list in gigantic. Best of all is the personnel, who make the bar and restaurant experience much more pleasurable. Tim has been at the Westin for 29 years and cannot be nicer or more helpful. We also enjoyed being...

The server and manager kept apologizing for the delay, but the manager said "there was a problem with the bread". Basically we finally were served a Brie grilled cheese sandwich on white loaf bread.

The staff is sharp, polished, and polite. The drink menu is expansive. The seating area is beautiful and comfortable. It's a wonderful place to relax with a drink before dinner or after shopping. One of our favorites!

After a long day full of seminars and shopping in the galleria afterward, I peaked at the menu and was immediately impressed, especially when the host told me about the Market Fish special--whole branzino. I asked for a table near an outlet because my phone was dead, and the host showed me to a very comfortable upholstered cushion in the... More

I experienced an Omelet with a side of bacon. They were both perfectly prepared. I had a choice of egg white omelet or regular. There regular was terrific. The service was above average and my coffee cup was never empty. They even gave me a to go cup of coffee.

If you stay at the Westin don't miss The Second Floor. Cool bar atmosphere up front and beautiful dining area in the back. You can order a bottle of wine or champagne and finish it in room with dessert to go!

We loved this bar with its great service and ambience. After our conference, we happened upon this 2nd Floor Bar (aptly names) and spent some quality time in the very comfortable leather seating! Great drinks, very friendly staff and very great happy hour prices. Look forward to cooming back and seeing this wonderful staff!
