Don't waste your time or money!!! The food is horrible!! If you walk past this restaurant near the lobby and see no one in there, it's for a good reason. We had a quick and disgusting dinner. Don't recommend.

I made a huge mistake not checking trip advisor! My waitress was horrible. It took ten minutes to put my order In. I had to ask her for a drink after she took my food order. She never spoke, she just mumbled. She never came back to ask me how my horrible cesear salad (brown, no parmesan, hardly any croutons)... More

Limited offerings, expected more from the main restaurant in a fancy resort. Food nothing special, not bad but not overwhelmingly good

For this caliber of hotel the service should be better at this restaurant. On one occasion, Our waiter had two tables and could not keep things straight. The food wasn't bad. The soup was actually delicious as was my salad. Food was served promptly. The atmosphere is decent as well. I ate here several different times and service was always... More

Food was very nasty. The wait staff was not nice. We waited on our food for over an hour. I asked for something to be taken off my bill cause I only took one bite. He said he will need to get the manager to take it off. Wow just not a good place to eat.

We ate at this "bustro" for dinner on Sunday before Labor Day this week; this was our first night at the hotel. The lighting is so bright in the restaurant it had zero ambiance and the music was quite loud as well (blaring); it had a utilitarian feel, not a bistro. The waitress was perfunctory in her duties, just going... More

With an early tee time for golf, we were thrilled to find that the Café actually was open before 7:00 AM. This allowed plenty of time for a leisurely breakfast before golf. The waiter was very welcoming and most friendly. My husband had the eggs and corned beef hash. It was excellent and the serving of the corn beef hash... More

Basic breakfast buffet. Average at best. Ok for a quick bite or if you need to stay in the hotel for breakfast. People nice though.

Horrible food, slow service, terrible breakfast buffet, all at unreasonably high prices for the quality you are getting from that restaurant.

I enjoyed a nice breakfast here with my family this morning while staying at the Grand Traverse Resort. We were very pleased by the quality, selection, and prices of the breakfast buffet. Our two children ate for free at the buffet, since we also ordered the buffet (i.e. they were included in the adult buffet price). Our buffet breakfast cost... More
