Excellent brunch!

Really enjoyed their brunch. The cost was about $50 per person, but worth it. They have high quality food and a good variety. Their service is also really good. I'd compare it to a really good Las Vegas style buffet without the crowds and with not quite as much selections.

I had breakfast here twice. The quality of the food was very good - oatmeal with berries and chorizo quesadillas. My only complaint is the service is slow. It took 30 minutes each time. Would be good for a power business breakfast, but too slow for solo.

This is a fantastic place for brunch. The variety of food for both breakfast and lunch is excellent. This is a special occasion for most people at $50 but the service and food are worth it. If you're looking for a great place to celebrate this is a good pick.

Yes. It IS expensive. Expect to spend >$100.00 per couple, more if you order champagne (Dom Peringon is on the menu). It might bust your budget, but for a special occasion, you can't do better than the Brown. Classic elegance, epic history, and impeccable service are just the start. The food is fabulous. In addition to the typical brunch stuff,... More

We ate breakfast here and the food was good but it was pricey and amazingly, we were charged for coffee, which has not happened on our American tour in any other hotel we have stayed in. No wonder the waitress asked if we wanted a cup to go!

The Sunday Champagne brunch is excellent. Huge selection of food, all fresh and well prepared. The choices ranged from a sea food buffet to made to order to omelet to carved prime rib. The Bananas Foster was great.

I stated at the hotel for 5 days in January. One of the days I invited my team to have breakfast. We were dressed down for a day of trade show setup. We were treated rudely, ignored, and the arrogant waiter basically threw the plates on the table. The food was solid, albeit a little underwhelming. I enjoy “power breakfasts”... More
