    I was surprised and pleased at the quality of my food. I had a New York strip and this being a hotel restaurant generally they are not the best you have ever had. My steak came prepared absolutely perfectly and flavorful my meal was very enjoyable and the service was very good.

    This "restaurant" is located in the center of the Embassy Suites lobby. The food is fine, the atmosphere is a little bit awkward as people walk through the area all the time. Service is friendly and efficient.

    Red Oak Craft Bar and Rostisserie is a hidden gem! The food is outstanding and many items come from their own garden. The salmon melted in my mouth and was served with their homemade pesto sauce. The food is farm fresh and delicious! Service was outstanding too. The atmosphere is very casual and welcomes all guests, not just those staying at the Embassy Suites.

    We should have known when we walked into this completely empty property on a Saturday night that this would not be a good experience. I had heard good things about this place & decided to give it a try with some Out of town friends. The restaurant itself is very nicely appointed. A recent remodel has garnered sleek lines, comfortable seating & a spacious open feel. It’s really well done in terms of appearance. They had an interesting signature cocktail menu so we decided to give these a go. Our server got my order wrong & brought me a cocktail that had an ingredient to which I am allergic . I took one sip & knew it was the wrong drink. My friends Manhattan was delicious. When the correct drink finally arrived it was loaded with Cinnamon which was not mentioned as an ingredient. I am allergic to cinnamon as well so no drink for me. In terms of food we started with “Loaded tots” which were dry, flavorless bits of potato with nothing loaded about them. We also had the caprese salad which was three pieces of mozzarella, four small pieces of tomato, & four pieces of basil slathered with an obviously store bought “basalmic” dressing. The salad looked ridiculous because it was served on a long white plate much too large for the amount of food. For entrees a friend had the steak quesadilla which seemed fine. My other friend & I had the “rotisserie rib eye steak.” This was served with inedible “mashed potatoes” which were a gluey, flavorless lump. Mashed potatoes are my favorite thing in the world so you know they are bad when I leave them virtually untouched. The ribeye was ordered medium rare & arrived at best at medium with a very uneven cook. Perhaps the chef wasn’t used to cooking on the rotisserie. Parts were literally burned. (I expected some char on the steak but this was ridiculous.). The steal was poorly, if at all seasoned. Included on the plate was some sautéed spinach which tasted bland. All in all avoid this place. It’s not worth the trip.

    The food was okay, not the best selection and they were items that were publicized that were not there but at least it was edible. The biggest problem was the service which was awful. This was supposed to be a bottomless mimosa brunch for Mother’s Day, and we basically had to continuously flag down someone to help our table. The plates piled up on the tiny table that they put us at, and I had to bus my own table because nobody would come and clean off the plates. I would not recommend this spot and will not be returning.

    Forever, so went for the Mother’s Day brunch buffet. It was great! It was a white Friday food. Everyone was satisfied.

    It was a nice experience for Easter brunch. Food was just okay and need more seasoning. Good variety of choices. Services were great and attentive. Constant refill of water and beverages.

    We came for the Easter brunch buffet for $49 per person. Service was excellent, the staff were friendly, and the space was bright and enjoyable to sit and have conversation. The food on the buffet was average, but plentiful. Excellent arugula & golden beet salad, fresh cut fruit, and cheese ravioli. The salmon was delicious and not over cooked in the chafer. Bacon was crispy and sausages were juicy. They had a carving station for roast beef and ham, but I passed on that (ham looked overcooked and dry). They also had an area where they would serve eggs Benedict and omelettes to order. There was one lady who came up to complain that all the poached eggs on her eggs Benedict were poached hard and came back to get a couple replaced. She then cut them open after given some on new plates and they were all still poached hard. She then left the food there on the counter and walked away upset. I personally think if they had prepared the eggs Benedict and placed them on the buffet line that they would be better. I ordered an omelette and got an eggs Benedict to just try for myself. My omelette was fine, my eggs Benedict was just okay (egg was definitely poached hard like having a hard boiled egg). I ate 1/2 of it anyway. Desserts were okay, we liked the Tiramisu cake the best. It was quirky to have the bread toaster plugged in and available when there weren’t any sliced breads to toast, but only bread rolls were put out next to it. My roll was hard so I decided to put my bread roll onto the rolling conveyor belt of the toaster and a worker came up to me to tell me that the rolls aren’t meant for the toaster and it ended up getting stuck. He unplugged the toaster after that. Um, okay. When I took another one to take back with me to our table it was hard and very dry. Oh well. For our table for two gratuity was automatically added to our bill, but we didn’t mind that, the staff was excellent. We will find another spot for Easter brunch elsewhere in the future though.
