The restaurant tries for an air of elegance, but somehow falls short. The waitstaff is attentive, yet not quite there when you look for them. The view of Maggie Pond and the Ten Mile Range might be inspiring in daylight, but at night not much more than some hotel and condo buildings are visible. Lastly, the dining room is nice and tries for plush, but falls short without any real character.
Our food was tasty and attractively presented but somehow soulless, a generic "good quality hotel restaurant dinner" similar to what you'd get for the price anywhere. Almond baked brie served with berries, walnuts and dried fig bits had some interesting tastes and textures, but the main courses--salmon and filet mignon--were good, but undistinguished.
For the price, it's hard to rate this place higher than 'somewhat recommended.'
