"Somewhat limited menu but that's fine because everything I had was well prepared. The servers are very friendly and are quite efficient."

"My wife and I got away from our kids and enjoy nice romantic dinner at Soleil@K. Kristee took very good care of us. My lamb chops where huge and very tasty.
After dinner we went to their bar Altitude for a drink - a must see place.

"The team only had an hour for a lunch meeting and it took 1.5+ hours to get our food. So I had to leave before getting served, and didn't get to eat. A few from my team stayed behind to continue to wait for their food."

"We had a Sunday reservation at noon. The restaurant advertised Sunday brunch. Brunch ended at 11 am, however. That is breakfast, not brunch. We would not have come for lunch."
