I wasn't that hungry, so my husband and I were going to order the "large plate" and share. Out of curiosity I picked up the knife and rubbed the sharp edge against my thumb to see if it was sharp enough to cut a steak, and then laid it back on my napkin. Before I could say anything the waiter, took my knife and put it back in a drawer in the center of the room to reuse. I'm sure he didn't see me play with the knife or he wouldn't have put it back to use for someone else - but I was still shocked. We told him we were sharing the plate, so I don't think he should have taken any of my cutlery away. When we got the steak dinner, it was a very small amount of food on a large plate. We've had better steaks in less pricey restaurants, for sure. We are still laughing that the "brown butter" was listed as a "side" on the menu for this "large plate".

Great steaks! Reasonably priced $33 tenderloin was great. Ribeye 16oz for 44. The veggies were great as well. Dessert was good and Jerome the manager was awesome to offer it free for our anniversary. Will come back even when not staying at hotel. 5 star experience but 4.5 star spot. Worth a check out though.

Thank Jermaine H

While staying at the Omni, we planned to eat here from the time we made reservations. The dining room is classy and comfortable. Service was friendly, attentive, and prompt. The menu is a tad small, but offers several gluten/dairy free and vegetarian options.
We tried the Chicken tortilla soup of the day, a little spicy for my daughter, but I tasted and liked it. She also had the small plate of rigatoni, which she thoroughly enjoyed. My wife and I both ordered the pork rib chop with brussels sprouts on the side. The pork was excellent, sweet and juicy, memorable. The accompanying black garlic butter went so well with everything, the last bits sopped up with bread. If you don't like slimy/mushy poorly prepared B sprouts I agree; try these though, caramelized with pancetta they were killer. We were stuffed, but ordered a couple of desserts to go for later. Sooooo much better than your average hotel food.

Eat breakfast one morning. Buffet is $22. Ordered Belgium waffle which came with a little fruit. Waffle not really that thick which I expect for a Belgium waffle. It was good. Wife had egg frittata which she thought was somewhat weird as the veggies were raw and had slices of fresh mozzarella on top that don't melt. Overall not fully satisfied with food and prices. Service was good.
