Had read some articles and reviews of this place and thought it would be worth the little extra for our Christmas day meal.

It was what you'd expect from a hotel or convention buffet. Our server touted the buffet as some kind local, organic, gourmet spread. What we got was a bad rendition of decent ingredients. The root vegetables & rice were undercooked while the leaf vegetables and fish were overcooked. Their veggie entree, billed as Thai style curried tofu & vegetables, was... More

Service was good. The setting is lovely, however, the night we dined, two weddings were taking place on the property. The view out the main dining room area was obstructed by the massive white tent set up for the wedding. The salad bar was wonderful, full of fresh, flavorful options. Loved the heirloom tomatoes, mozzarella and basil salad - amazing!... More

I so regret hearing your experience was disappointing. I can certainly appreciate how the tent took away from the ambiance and setting and as a general rule we don't allow them. I apologize for this.

We stayed at the Sleeping Lady. The service at the Kingfisher was excellent! The food in the buffet was average. However, when staying on property, it is convenient to be able to feed the family without needing to get in the car.

We made a reservation but when we arrived we were told a large group had reserved the whole place. It was quite obvious by all the corporate lanyards we saw.

Some of the food was great, loved the French toast. But was expecting the food to be better for the price. The shrimp tasting very fishy. Nothing made to order.

Sorry Kingfisher but reading these honest reviews it sounds like the service and atmosphere would not meet expectations for the price.
