The "wait" for lunch (not very long) was well worth the experience. The Jefferson does a fantastic job of decorating for the Christmas season, The Manger, Toyland and their decorated gigantic Christmas Tree. Poinsettias everywhere - Nutcrackers too! As for TJ's - the lunch was a great treat. The Cubano sandwich was extremely good, tho my first experience with french... More

This was our fourth or fifth time of using this venue for celebratory events and it is now more about the experience and the festive atmosphere than the food. The food is good and the selection and options are endless but you can only eat so much. Unfortunately, we saw a lot of food being wasted and that is unfortunate.... More

My wife, daughter (and her Fiancé) and I decided to experience the Thanksgiving buffet at the Jefferson Hotel. My wife and I had experienced the Easter lunch buffet several years ago and remembered it as fantastic. The brunch was a bit on the high side however the variety of dinning fare, champagne, atmosphere (to include live piano and guitar music)... More

The food was delicious. The waitresses and helpers were friendly, talking to us about our home towns, traveling, and even giving us tips on what to expect in the holiday season at the Jefferson. There was no dress code and although it was extremely formal, it was a comfortable atmosphere.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for my birthday and we did the whole Champagne Brunch thing. Definitely more about the experience and the atmosphere opposed to the food. The food was good don't get me wrong.. Just a little pricey for a buffet. Maybe I am a little judgmental because I have worked in a very similar environment. Lemaire... More

The hotel is awesome. Bring your camera just to take photos. The brunch was a little pricey, however there was no lack of variety of food. Many dishes were in need of seasoning but well cooked and presented. Numerous seafood and egg dishes. Carving station a little "light". Overall an excellent place because of the hotel and ambience.

The lobby is gorgeous, you really can't ask for more there! The food was good but I guess I expected more? The service was the weak spot, had a young untrained server that was just going through the motions. Overall I would come back.

This is a great value deal if you like good food and champagne! We do. The Jefferson is a magnificent old building. We were seated on the mezzanine level so had a birds-eye view of the breakfast buffet area below and we got some much needed excercise going up and down the staircase for our food!
