“Fantastic breakfast buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Although the restaurant was initially very crowded, it began to empty out soon after we sat. The buffet was full of scrumptious dishes, and the staff was very attentive without being obtrusive. Absolutely delicious!

“Expensive!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

$44 per person for breakfast in a cramped and loud restaurant. There are a lot better and cheaper alternatives in walking distance.

Long lines, so get there early and make sure your utensils are clean. The food was good and the waiters were great!

“Great for brunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Came here for brunch with my girlfriends and had a pleasant experience! I am gluten free and I felt that there were plenty of options for me to choose from. Also, loved the fresh squeezed OJ!

I had breakfast at Oscar's and had a wonderful experience. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was great. Everything was presented in an organized and lovely way. The buffet was delicious with a lot of options. The fruit was perfect and full of flavor. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting NYC!
