My wife and I have been going to Loews Ventana Canyon Resort for Sunday brunch for several years and it still ranks as one of the most memorable and excellent meals we've done. In fact, this past week, just two days after what was supposed to be the Mayan apocalypse, we decided that had the apocalypse happened and we had a choice for a "last meal" it would have been Loews brunch.
Their prices have increased, which will (slightly) limit the number of times we can go, but we still consider this one of the best values anywhere. Chef Kent Harvey does an outstanding job with all his courses, his staff is excellent, and he takes extra care to assure that guests are happy. We noticed him and a co-worker digging up plants off the patio, and when I inquired, we were promptly invited back into the kitchen and got a great lesson on lemon grass - which is what he had just harvested. From mimosas, to salads, to breakfast items to seafood to barbeque to beer to blues - this rates in my opinion as one of the best brunches ever - and reliably so!
