This is the 8th year our family has attended this wonderful Christmas tea, and what a special occasion it is. Six of us, grand daughters, daughter-in-laws and me, grandma!! All dressed up for Christmas, and the most elegant Christmas buffet of "mini bites" of sandwiches, fruits, cheeses and fabulous desserts. The gorgeous room, ocean beyond, and ever-so memorable service make... More

The food quality was very good but certainly pricey such as $54 for a filet mignon ,$84 for the lobster pot pie, and $12 for a 3-oz root beer float. The restaurant did provide a few extras (small cup of soup, a miniscule cone (about 1/10th of an oz) of ice cream free of charge. Service was good but our... More

My family has been going to the Motif at the St regis for thanksgiving for the last ten years in a row. We all look forward to the relaxed but upscale atmosphere along with the Thanksgiving Buffet. It has been a great tradition. We will begin to look for a new tradition next year as the Motif completely botched this... More

Breakfast was delicious...get the waffles! Light, crispy outside and moist inside. Oatmeal can come with fresh fruits...just ask. They will put your unfinished coffee in a cup to go. My only complaint is that on Sunday, they close at 9am to set up for Sunday brunch that starts at 11am. Bummer, wanted breakfast before checking out. If they had any... More

Some quick tips about Motif Be sure to dine outside if the weather is nice so you can enjoy a view of the ocean. The staff is very friendly and courteous Food is good and portions are generous. I especially liked the soft shell crabs, the caeser shrimp salad, and the burgers. The prices are high so don't be surprised... More

Loved the lunch (kale salad awesome) but hated the brunch (disgusting, food was cold and picked through, and the waiters clueless and unwilling to help). It was like Disneyland because of the all the kids picking through the brunch (not in a good way).

Outstanding options for Sunday Brunch, with or without champagne. A bit pricey, but not much to ask for considering this is a 5 star resort, great food with an excellent view / atmosphere!!!

We had a few different meals here during our recent stay. Our server, Esteban was great, so we asked for him each time...friendly, unpretentious, knowledgable, and attended to our every need. Their breakfast menu is outstanding. Lots of different creative choices and plenty for us gluten free folks to choose from, including pancakes. The egg tambale was fabulous & I... More
