Really elegant setting for high tea ($24). Take a walk around the hotel beforehand. Scones and sweets were particularly delicious. We got 4 separate teas - Richmond, Jefferson, Earl Grey and the special vanilla roobis. The Richmond, which is mostly an orange spice, was far and away our favorite. There were 4 kinds of finger sandwiches offered on the tower.... More

The hotel and restaurant are gorgeous! Posh and old elegance. The waiter went above and beyond by accommodating my vegan husband. Both plates were artistically presented which was only surpassed by hoe delicious food--I had flounder. The wines were excellent and complimented our meal. The waiter wrote what we drank. The sommelier came to our table to make recommendations and... More

Went with a group of friends. Staff was very helpful and courteous. Sunday brunch selection has breakfast and lunch buffet options. I preferred the breakfast selections, omelette station, waffles, sausages, bacon were all great. Lunch option with a seafood table with Brie, oysters, mussels and lots more. The dessert table was my favorite, too many options to list. It's kinda... More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal here this past Sunday. The last time we attended this brunch was 7 years ago, so it was interesting to see if anything had changed in that amount of time. The service was as warm and gracious as ever, and our server offered to take photos of the two of us with our camera. Wonderful... More

This place was beautiful. I was impressed with the quartet playing and also the ice sculpture in the food line. Your choice of breakfast on one side and dinner items on the other. In the middle of the room, they had a variety of petite deserts available. When you first sit down you are served champagne, or choice of coffee,... More

From the moment we arrived we felt special... the greeting and wonderful smile we received from the valet, which is free to brunch guests, to the very warm and courteous service we received from our waiter to the patience of the hostess who graciously took multiple photographs. Loved that we could reserve our table during reservation, which we made over... More

Champagne, Incredibly Elegant Setting, Delicious Food, Gracious Service. You would have to travel to Peacock Alley at the Waldorf=Astoria in New York City to find anything close. Heavenly !

We couldn't get a reservation but we showed up to look at the tree and asked while we were there if there was an opening ! There was ! Way too much food but all of it excellent and we enjoyed seeing Santa and Mrs.Claus. So my suggestion is to always try for a table.

This bunch is a must-do, for everyone from locals to those visiting from out-of-town. We went the Sunday after Christmas and the holiday decorations can't be beat (don't forget to stop by the lobby to see the annual Gingerbread creation!). Yes, this is a buffet in the sense that you will carry your plate to your table, however I assure... More
