Went with close friends for Sunday brunch. Meals were very tasty, service was very good. Nice live jazz background music. Will go back!

It was my birthday brunch celebration. From the start, the experience was a complete and utter disaster. The service was unbelievably slow to nonexistent. The staff was friendly but did not respond to requests. At all. We asked for music but got silence. We asked for the AC to be turned down and it was FREEZING. We asked for stronger beverages, and they were mostly juice. Then to top it all off, they charged each of us the ENTIRE tab by accident. Disaster! Never will go again!!!!!!

Service was horrible. Waitress could not even describe dishes on menu. Ordered Asian chicken and rice dish. Pieces of chicken were smaller than chicken McNuggets and even lesser quality. Disgusting and sent back

Décor and tables are excellent and comfy with nice table settings. Cool solarium. Bar area with occasional trivia/entertainment. Wonderful food!! Not cheap but probably average $$$, but the food and chef is excellent! Very good service from a great team: Aixa, Gina, and Marisa, THANK YOU!!! :) In a nice hotel and WORTH a visit for a NICE meal! DAILY SPECIALS!

The restaurant was very slow the evening we were there, but that didn't mean the food was any less special. All of our entrees were presented well and tasted delicious. Our waitress was very personable and offered suggestions. I often hesitate to order a hamburger because I like it medium well and don't want it overcooked or undercooked. It came just exactly as I like (and the waitress didn't scoff at my detailed description lol)
Would definitely recommend both the Ethan Allen Hotel and the dining. Our lunches in the bar area that afternoon were also very good!

Place was fabulous but the Service was lacking ~ we waited & waited & waited constantly throughout the entire meal. Took an hour before they brought out our order. I can only think it was the server was new or off that day. We will give it another chance as all else was superb! Would recommend!!

We were very disappointed with this restaurant. The menu was very limited and our waitress
who had only 1 other table forgot about us. We won't go back
