Food and service were superb. From the valet service for parking the car, to the libations before and during dinner, to the presentation of food .......all was perfect. The various menu items were all delicious. We were not rushed in any way and even enjoyed the piano music playing softly in the background.

How could one not dine in this magnificent dining room whilst staying at Hay Adams -
The room is gorgeous and dining whilst the pianist is playing beautifully along side you is a joy. The staff are attentive, friendly and efficient and nothing is too much trouble. The food was good - not outstanding but good with a reasonable selection of wines from which to choose - my partner and I enjoyed our meal there.
We did have our breakfast in this stunning room every morning and the selection and quality of foods offered was superb - a very pleasant way to start the day - all staff were terrific but one of the staff members was outstanding - his name was Elmaachi and it was certainly a pleasure to see his smiling face there every morning to look after your every breakfast need - thanks Elmaachi and Hay Adams from 2 Aussie Travellers

Had breakfast here and it was wonderful. Attention to service was top notch as was the food. These folks really know how to take care of their customers and we were no exception. It's located in a gorgeous hotel, The Hay- Adams, and everything about this place was first class.

I can't say enough about this restaurant. It is elegant and refined, and the menu is complete. The service is genteel and extraordinary; nothing is a problem for the staff, that tries to satisfy your every whim. Even the parking is no-nonsense valet parking experience. The most wonderful characteristic: the noise level is low enough to be able to talk to your companions! Though it is an expensive restaurant, it is a most relaxing experience. .
