"With nothing the average priced lunch item being $15 or higher, this place is overpriced. None of the menu choices is terribly creative and the service was a bit lacking as well. I was especially disappointed when I ordered a quesadilla to-go as I could not dine in and instead of the typical sides of guacamole, sour cream and salsa, I was given a bottle of ketchup. I didn't discover this until off site so couldn't correct it. As I was at a conference in the hotel, I ended up eating here more than once. The other disappointment was being charged $10 for a "caprese" salad that included about a 1/2 cup of mixed greens, 1/2 tomato and 2 golf-ball sized pieces of mozzarella cheese! It's a good thing I wasn't looking for a full meal, and only something light, but it was a joke to be charged $10 for something so puny. While the food tasted fine, and it was not an unpleasant dining experience, I would not voluntarily choose to eat here in the future."
