While attending a conference, we had a little down time to grab something to eat. We started with a bread basket with homemade crackers. I ordered the filet. It was cooked the way I ordered it, medium well. The steak was delicious and served with fingering potatoes and vegatbles. My friend order the vegetarian dish and said it was great but a large serving. The dessert selection was awesome. I had the chocolate mousse cake. It was a great treat and great service for a hotel resturant.

This a really nice place, the wait staff are superb, however it has a bit of a leap to call itself a Fine Dining restaurant.
We grabbed a cocktail at the bar before our OpenTable reservations came due. Wonderful, friendly seating. Bartender was friendly and courteous.
We were seated in the dining room and although very clean and nicely set tables, the decor is a bit dated and I'm not much for having a raccoon stare at me while I eat. But if you don't mind, you'll like it.
Our waiter was professional and friendly, hence the first of the title of review.
I ordered the Escargot. It was a rendition with a phyllo dough top. It would have been fine if it was not burnt. The escargot was plentiful, easily enough to share. The ramekin that held the escargot was filled with something resembling a thickened french onion soup without the onion. It was ok (without the burnt top), but not great.
Where it went down hill was both of their top Bone-In ribeyes came out close to well done on a medium rare order. Those ribeyes seemed to be a decent quality, but even the waiter said something as to their preparation and were returned. And where it ended for me was not being professional enough in the back to recognize an issue and give it some attention. The next set of ribeyes weren't even rare, the quality of these steaks were so bad with gristle and tissue; I got down about half of mine. The accompaniments were flavorful and well proportioned. They brought creme fraiche to the table, it had such a pungent mildew smell we had to move it to the far end of the table.
The wine list had nice selections from both ends of a budget.
The difference in a true Fine Dining restaurant and just a good meal are; you shouldn't see any mistakes, and if you do, they should make sure you don't see them again. Everglades fell short that evening I'm sorry to say.

Really enjoyed the ambiance, food, and service. Enjoyed eating here twice during my stay. The first visit was at the bar and the second in the dining room. Really enjoyed the delicious fresh Cobia over baby bok choy and fabulous desserts. I highly recommend this eatery and would definitely come back!
