Had dinner here... we went ala carte instead of the buffet (seemed like most people did the buffet). Hambuger ok, fries were great, the mushroom soup was a disappointment (and had a hair in it). The views, well that was hard to beat... evening views over the city towards the Pearl Tower and river.

We aimed at Cloud 9 but it was closed for drinks at 14.30 hrs and we didn't have time to wait until 17.00 hrs. Instead we decided to have a glas of Prosecco in the Cafe at lobby level - only level 54... ;) However, Hyatt is a hotel and establishment I have some expectations on and they failed completely....

First, the view is fantastic, if not for the gloomy or polluted weather. Lots of variety at the breakfast area. Spoilt for choices with pastries, bread, international and Asian selection as well. Taste is also great

-1 because the view is blocked (not by the Party) thanks to smog and later, rain cloud cluster. Food is hearty - haven't such cornucopia of seafood selection before. For $60 you can enjoy limitless King Crab, lobster, oyster and roe! Almost had a gout attack!

This place has an outstanding view of the city. The food is ok. Nothing extraordinary, but not bad at all. The service is very good.

Price: RMB 368 (regardless weekday or weekend) + service for dinner buffet . It worths. It's on 56/F of the Hyatt hotel, very great view of Shanghai, The Bund. Food: Hard to say. One side, comparing other five star hotels, the food buffet area is pretty small. On the other hand, there are salad bar, sushi/sashimi, cold seafood (lobster, scallop,... More

I think this, as well as the Sofitel Mosaic, is one of the best buffet in town. Price is quite fair compared to food variety (you can have plenty of lobster...) that serves chinese and western. What is most impressive is the dessert station, simply wonderful in variety and tastes. They are very helpful if you have kids who can... More

Generally speaking, hotel lounge food is, well, hotel lounge food. I had a long day of meetings and then some late sight seeing and remembered when it was too late that I hadn’t made any firm plans for dinner (combo of too much running around and perhaps jetlag seeping in.) It was after 9 p.m. and the only option seemed... More

Living in Shanghai for 3 years, we decided to go to Grand Cafe for Saturday lunch. We took a la carte menu. Ordered hot & sour soup - anything but hot and sour. We ordered cheese burgers... if the chef at Grand Hyatt thinks that 'THE' slice of 5 gr cheese in the burger is enough, then we don't have... More
