After a long travel day on business, with multiple flight delays, it was really nice to sit down and relax and this was a great place to decompress from the stress of the day. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was great.

The prawn gumbo tasted of pure beef stock. The vegetable Napoleon had good ingredients (eggplant, portobello mushrooms, zucchini and yellow squash) but they were all undercooked and under-salted. The wine was the best part of the meal. The selection was very good. Service was friendly...More

Hello. The breakfast package is two full buffets. It does not include room service. Should the buffet not be offered the day you are here we have a selection of menu items to choose from. Thank you for your question.
