O’ H my!!!!!

So, when you throw $60 million bucks into a hotel just to revamp the restaurant, bar, and guest check in areas, you’re going to get some great results. Nikki and I were amazed at the difference a few years have made since we had visited here for a wedding previously. O’ H is dressed to the nines and is a perfect pre-concert dinner establishment!

Upon arrival, we couldn’t help but notice that this massive overhaul brought bright colors and curvaceous lines to not only the bar area but also the booths we were sitting in (you know, that 70’s chair that looked kind like an egg with a hole from Mork and Mindy- Shazbaat). The entrance is something that I would refer to as lofty and brilliant with tons of space.

The service here was also fresh and inviting. They knew the menu well and were certainly up to snuff on their recommendations. We started with the grilled prawns and avocado witch was “oh” so tasty. We of course asked for recommendations which lured us to the beefy brisket that was made with their homemade BBQ sauce. We think this is particularly naughty because the consistency of a home-made BBQ must be just that, consistent. Kudos and an O’ My to O’ H!

Next was my dish which I thought deserved its own paragraph. It was comprised of a nice Salmon stuffed with some super sweet crab meat. So, for those reading this, I must say that this is a simple must. They also sport over 500 bottles of wine which we couldn’t taste all in one sitting however we promise we will be back and are capable of consuming!

We topped of our night with a latte sundae stuffed with coffee liquor. We didn’t get much of a buzz off of this dream boat but promise it’ll kick ya where ya want it to! Besides that, we were already feeling “O’ H-myish”.

So before we close, as you know, Nikki and I must provide our washroom review as well (because every date must have a good can). That being said, we used Hyatt’s potty which flushes out at a three spot. We find it difficult to spice up a hotel washroom but Hyatt certainly represents with the best of them!
