No good. No A/C, I hate when it’s to hot while eating at a restaurant. The food was not good. Calamari over cooked. NO MUSIC, awkward when people don’t talk because it’s so quite. It’s also in the basement of the hotel and it actually...More

I consider myself a fair judge of calamari...this one was breaded with spices and served with Thai sauce... yummy 😋 I had the salmon for an entree with grilled veggies. I wasn’t a fan of the vegetables but the salmon was perfect 👌

The barmaid in the bar adjacent to the restaurant was friendly and pleasant. Drink quality slightly less than average. The restaurant has a limited selection but the food was OK and service was reasonable. We selected the hotel partly because it has onsite bar and...More

Unexpected flight change at JFK stranded me near the Crowne Plaza for the overnight. Saw decent reviews on TA for the Idlewild and it was close by. Barman was nice enough, but had to check with “the manager“about drink prices as advertised via their website....More

We had dinner when overnighting at the Crowne Plaza, in advance of an early flight. They have a very good menu, and the food is wholesome and well cooked, and it's very good value for money. Service was excellent. It's downstairs, which feels funny, but...More

There's a very limited menu at this restaurant. It is conveniently located in the Crowne Plaza. I wouldn't come to the restaurant unless you were staying at the hotel. They were out of numerous beers.

Enjoyed our meal during a quick overnight stay at the hotel. Can't say enough about Dominic who was our server. He was friendly and the food from the new menu was very good.

We checked in to the hotel around 8 after a four hour drive and we were pretty hungry. No where else really to go that was convenient so we ate at the restaurant. Yes the food is expensive, they sort of got you, but it...More

Expensive, but there are no other choices. Food would be good at $7 to $9. However, you are trapped and they charge like a theme park.
