    Great restaurant, good atmosphere, outstanding service. The background music was a bit loud and appeared to create an amount of excessive noise and conviviality in the bar; more like an out of control college party. This distracted from the restaurant, which was separate and quite good. The choice of music was not particularly to my taste, but as noted, that is a taste issue. Overall, good place for dinner.

    The main course was delicious (Bison and sides) but the desserts were extremely underwhelming. Very small selection (only 4 offered, with only one gluten free option) and neither of the two we tried impressed us at all. Sad that such a high-end hotel/restuarant isn’t offereing a mugh higher caliber of desserts.

    The ambiance at hawthorn is so good but the seating is so incredibly uncomfortable. The seating looks really nice but it's impossible to sit for a long time. The proportion of the tables to the chairs is just awful. The only good spot to sit really is at the bar.

    This grandiose hall/room was transmuted into a more or less utilitarian slightly upscale coffee place. Do not expect an upscale dining experience. The furnishings are uninspiring and not in keeping with the extraordinary architectural surroundings. Ok for ordinary hotel dining/lunching. A mismatch of major proportions.

    We got married at the Palliser 14 yrs ago today, only had time for lunch today so thought the Hawthorn would be perfect. How wrong we were. Food tasted like I was having lunch in a seniors home. Beyond disappointing. The server never came back to check on us so we ended up eating as we were very hungry. But I honestly can’t remember the last time I ate something so plain and boring. The shrimp on toast was not at all what it says it is, lacks some serious imagination, and the chicken sandwich is nothing but bread… perhaps cook the fries next time. After eventually forcing down the tasteless dishes with massive pieces of toast, we waited for ages to get our bill, eventually having to go ask for it. When we tried to explain the issues the server wouldn’t let us speak nor would he stop saying ‘sorry’ long enough to just listen. Needless to say this was a horrible anniversary lunch.

    Mezze plate was a nice start. Our mains consisted of the Lamb, 12oz striploin and the 1/2 roasted chicken. We ordered the cauliflower, carrots and hand cut fries. The cauliflower came out as a starter (maybe to save on table space for the mains) but I felt it didn’t pair well with the mezze plate. The carrots were wonderful and the steak was cooked perfectly to medium. Our server was consistently slow to our table. We opted to share the dishes as suggested by the server, this resulted in a few food spills on our table which remained uncleaned right through dessert (cinnamon crepe cake, amazing!). When we flagged down the server for our bill, it was handed to us along with the debit terminal and the server walked away. I ended up printing my receipt and thanking myself for the wonderful dinner.

    Awful. The menu changed to a format where all the dishes are supposed to be shared. Absolutely hate it. My guests thought I must be a nut to bring them to this type of place. Furthermore I think it is just another way of increasing prices. Last time we ever go to this place.

    Very nice ambience, great renovations for the old restaurant. Couple of issues. Using the middle eastern name for the "mezze" platter tricked us into thinking it would be a pork free item. When I asked for confirmation from our server she let us know that it is actually their version of a charcuterie platter and it did indeed have pork. House made sour dough bread came out slightly burnt. Cowboy chop lacked seasoning.
