The setting is beautiful. But the menu and food is comparable to any homewood suites morning breakfast... not really what you expect for your breakfast when you choose to go out - not on vacation, or brunch. I ordered blueberry pancakes which were described to have a blueberry compote... they came as plain pancakes and when I asked about the blueberries and the waiter said “oh they forgot the compote” and I was brought just a cup of blueberries (that is not a compote). My mom also ordered a sourdough and it left a lot to be desired when we reminded them it was ordered. But the ambiance was beautiful, the servers were nice, and the orange juice was nice. But for the price I do not think I will return.

They made Valentines Day memorable. From the team at the bar mixing innovative cocktails to our fantastic server making us feel like we were the only people there (while it was slammed), it was a complete experience. We had the Mushroom Risotto and the Halibut and couldn't have been more impressed. Thank You for making day special!

I would not recommend it. I thought the food was very over priced and the atmosphere was nothing special or unique. It was loud and you could hear dishes clamoring similar to how a diner is.
The server was very nice and attentive and he was very friendly. However, there was a special menu for Valentine's Day and it appeared it included a vegetable side, but it did not and the server didn't explain that very well. So we paid $20 for broccoli and carrots. At least the carrots were tasty, but the broccoli was pretty gross.
I would choose Russel's Steakhouse or Salvatore's restaurants over this one any day!

Service was great! They where running a little late because of it being Valentines. They accepted any blame even though none was given and compensated the whole meal because of it! Respected them for it and will definitely be back! The pride in their service and fun atmosphere and food won us over!

We made reservations and were expecting to be seated at a table. Instead we were seated in the lounge area at a couch. We ordered drinks from the bar and waited 30 minutes for them. I ordered a steak cooked medium and when it was brought out to the table, the meat was cold and raw. I have never sent food back but when the waitress came around to ask how everything was, she took one look at the steak and immediately took it back to the kitchen. After waiting another 30 minutes, she came back with my food. Instead of putting the steak back on the grill or bringing out a new steak, the entire plate was put under the broiler. The mushrooms and potatoes on the plate came back burnt and inedible. At this point we expected a discount or to not pay for the entree. Instead we were offered a free $10 drink and had to pay for the steak.

Wife and I visited for Valentine's Day. Make sure to enter through the Westin entrance, then walk around corner to right to get in. Greeted with coat service, seated quickly and definitely was a very modern and chic environment inside. Loved the atmosphere.

Waiters name was Matt, he was very friendly, very helpful, not pushy and never rushed us. Great service from him.

Food we got Valentine's Day specials, my wife got the truffle risotto. She said it may be the best meal she had ever eaten and literally had her mind blown by the flavor.

We got Buffalo Cauliflower for a shareable app, great crsip, great presentation, and great flavor! Loved the celery strings on top and the flavor was spot on!

I got steak, with hasselback carrots and mashed potato puree.....literally melted in my mouth.

Wife loved the drink with the gin, champagne and gold...yes gold!

I got the Sullivan's draft beer, very good as well.

Overall it was a perfect evening, highly recommend!

Limited menu for every budget. Could not eat a meal “on the cheap”. Support local farm fresh with 6 local options in their menu
Great wine selection for every budget.
Excellent service provided, attentive, but gave enough space to enjoy the dining experience.
Food well prepared and unique enough to remain engaging to the diner.
I like the open kitchen concept and privacy books the restaurant has created in an otherwise open space. Great layout. Creative use of glass wine rack wall in private dining area.

I ordered the filet and was disappointed on the sides that came along with it ( potatoes were too salty no flavor and didn’t taste fresh) filet was overwhelmingly greasy.

My fiancé ordered the salmon and was also in a puddle of grease. Our friends ordered a few appetizers (very good) however, disappointed in the enteres which we all tried from each other’s and were disappointed.

For a restaurant that charges as much as they do they should have better trained servers and chefs. The waitress couldn’t speak to the products on the menu and lacked attentiveness. We had to get the attention of the wait staff on multiple occasions.

Lunch with my aunt and two friends in a quiet booth and, later that evening, a dinner party with dear friends in the private dining room--the staff, service, and good at Patina 250 were superb! Special acknowledgement to Dave, our server, and Cody, overseeing our arrangements, who along with hosts and other staff made our special occasion seamless and elegant.

The cheese plate appetizer was surprisingly unique and delicious- especially the local bread! Absolutely loved the soup, and my husband's salmon was cooked perfectly. Adored my mocktail, and my husband's scotch drink was superb, perfectly balanced! Our server, Peter, was incredibly attentive and personable, and even the hostess chatted with us and we had a great conversation! Hope to come back next time we're in town!
