Food: Something in my spirit said… don’t do it. You won’t like it. Runnnnn. But the menu said “Come hither my child” like a slivering snake. And that one sentence will be the only exciting part of this review. The food was meh at best. The shrimp with the tortilla has a over-powering citric taste. The bay scallops and blue crab salad was underwhelming. The plantain crusted snapper was bland to the point that my companion refused to eat it. I lucked up with the Indian-Spiced Grilled Supreme Chicken that was actually quite flavorable. Thank goodness! And the dessert which you know I love… I hated. I got one scoop in and decided to push back from the table.
Service: Marginal. In a crowd of people self-serving at the buffet, you would have thought the only plated table would have received more personal service. You would have been mistaken. She wasn’t horrid but I don’t remember her name either. *shrugs*
Environment: It’s located in the Intercontinental at Doral. Nice enough environment as hotels go. Could use a bit of updating.
What to Wear: You are in a hotel, and not a fresh hip hotel… a regular… meh hotel. Come as you are.
Overall: Struggle 2. (My companion refused to let me give them 2.25)
Would I go again?: Not if I were paid… well maybe if I were paid.
All pictures were taken by my trusty
iphone Samsung. No they didn’t compensate me for the post and… yeah that’s it.
