No complaints. Great experience and always yummy food. Only thing I think is strange that for a fairly pricey meal we are not given any bread and must pay for it by choosing a basket of bread with olives from the appetizer menu. That is pretty petty I think. Just make the bread a part of the eating experience.

The tables are very close together which means that several people can hear your conversations. Why don’t they sit people a little more sparsely especially when the place is less than half-full. Food and service were very good.

This was the worse restaurant experience I’ve ever had. Let’s start with the awful waiter, this guy was extremely rude when he approached the table and it was obvious he didn’t care to be there. I had to ask multiple times for a refill, remind the guy to bring steak knives, and he had no clue about anything on the menu. The food was horrible too, ordered the ribeye steak, it was like chewing on rubber and an extremely thin cut of meat. I have no clue how this place has more than one star, it was absolutely horrible service and food. To give a comparison the chain Texas Road House was about 1000X times better. Save your time and money, and go somewhere else.

From the moment we walked in the service was impeccable. The squash-potato soup was delicious and perfectly smooth. The chicken wrap was excellent, and although it tasted great, the Beyond Burger was soggy from the the pickles and tomato on top of the patty. This was my first time at this restaurant and I would definitely return.

Dinner prior to attending Opera. Service designed to coordinate with Opera start time. An excellent special Opera menu, as well as able to order from regular menu. All designed for a most enjoyable pre-Opera dinner! Much appreciated, and very well done!

Went here with family and most of us were disappointed with our food. The burgers were dry, the mac&cheese needed something else, and the curry was too salty. The service was a bit slow as well, despite it not being too busy while we were there.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Our party found the service to be poor - the server was inattentive despite there only being a handful of diners in the restaurant. Food was also bland - the bison burger bun was soggy and falling apart when it arrived, and the salad was similarly soggy and disappointing.

If you're looking to host a colleague for lunch in the financial core there are plenty of better options, skip this one.

We were not given the full menu available because the server told us they were " in transition " which was a lie . All the diners who came after us were given the full menu. Needless to say we were most annoyed and will not have dinner there again. Disappointing because we had gone on the website to choose our meal only to be given the limited

Hi, Thank you for sharing your feedback! I am disappointed to hear about your experience. We do have a transition period between 11am -11:30am, and between 3pm-5pm, however you should have been provided with the menu afterwards. We will use this feedback to ensure we continue to provide guests with service throughout the day. We hope you give us another chance, and we look forward to serving you again soon!

Location perfect as we were going to the Ballet next door. Great choice on the menu but not overwhelming amount to choose from. Staff were professional and helpful as our waiter kept an eye on the clock to ensure we were not late for the show. Food delicious and perfect quantity. The restaurant was a little cool but tolerable. I would go again!

We went to Tundra on Feb. 18 for brunch. We purchased 4 buffet breakfasts at $27.00 per person. Unfortunately the food and selection was average . You had your regular breakfast items; scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, cereal, yogurt, breads, etc. For $27.00 I would expect some nicer items liked smoked salmon and assorted cheeses but what was most disappointing was the pastry selection. A few croissants, some cut fruits and 2 plain muffins (bran and raisin). I would expect much more from a restaurant in the Hilton. Wasn’t the worst but sorry I can’t say I would return.

Husband and I came here for Valentine's/his birthday. There seemed to be only 2 servers for the whole restaurant. Service was quite slow, especially towards the end when we wanted to leave and all we needed was a pen to charge our food to our hotel room. I ordered the lumachine, which unfortunately was covered in a very bland bechamel sauce. My husband had the rib eye medium rare, which was more medium well. Overall wasn't very impressive for such an expensive restaurant.
