Our small party had a relaxing mid-morning breakfast there on a Saturday morning. Eggwhite omelettes were well prepared; the buttermilk pancakes were truly fluffy and light. The oatmeal was yummy but I wish the portion was bigger. The coffee was excellent and endless.

Everyday we ate breakfast here. The staff knew their stuff as one of our party had food allergies. Food was nicely arranged on plates and there was plenty of food!

A good place for a quick bite. Food selection was ok. Ramen was tasty. Service was average. We were staying at the Lenox, so it was convenient on a rainy night.

Clubby atmosphere connected to Lenox Hotel. Intimate and chic atmosphere yet informal. Food was as expected in a city of great restaurants. Hamburger was perfect, great salad. Friendly and prompt service. Had dinner solo while at a meeting. Young crowd.

They did not have a buffet when I was there last week but they do offer a brunch. It was me and my friend and our bill, including tip was roughly $60. You can view their menu online.
