Hotel restaurant with questionable food quality. They seem to take absolutely not pride in the breakfast buffet. Food was always out and what was there was well picked over. Also seemed to be over or under cooked. One of the worst breakfast buffet's and at...More

Got back late from meetings and staying at the Fairmont Hotel so decided to give this a try. Had a craving for a Reuben and fries. I have had better ones in other places but I have had worse too.

We had a delicious breakfast on Sunday. I had delicious chilaquiles and my husband had the buffet. The selection was small, but all the food was excellent. He really enjoyed his omelette made to order, the New York strip steak, smoked salmon, fruit and pastries.

We ate here on our first morning in the hotel. The huevos rancheros were absolutely delicious, and beautifully presented. My husband enjoyed his omelette. Coffee was good too.

Made a Sunday brunch reservation for our family. The restaurant was busy. Part of our group did the brunch and the rest ordered off the menu. The wait staff was racing, but seemed a bit overwhelmed. Ordered a bottomless Mimosa and had to wait and...More
