The brunch was delicious. Tons of options, anything you want and all of it was great! No complaints! We went here for Easter and it was well worth it.

We had a large party for a birthday. Plenty of menu choices to satisfy everyone's desires. Food was excellent starting with signature Greek salad. We were given a private room which made it ideal with four children under five. Waiter was excellent. Place is a little dated but terrific dining experience.

Large group for early dinner. The restaurant is well placed. Plenty of parking. In the restaurant thedecor is old fashioned. Carpet was classically patterned. And light fittings very 80s. Service was average. Food was plentiful but honestly the style, taste and presentation were not to my personal liking. Old fashioned but this would appeal to many. Ordered calamari for appetiser....

Although I have had good/great prior experience at the Bonwit a few years back, this was not one of them. We had a group of women from work for a retirement, and had a price fixed kind of deal. I had the chicken and it was bland, dry. The 2 women next to me were not happy with the fish... More

Went on my dinner hour (work a few minutes away). My husband met me there and we went in about 7p on a weeknight. Restaurant was empty. A friendly waitress approached us and took a drink order... about 10 minutes later, we still had not received the drinks and the waitress was gabbing away at the service station with another...

had a very nice experience in the past at the Bonwit Inn brunch. Decided to try dinner. Service was very good, which is why I gave them an average rating. 3 of the 4 entree's were mediocre, and not inexpensive. seafood combo, veal bonwit and the salmon were all just edible. the only entree that we enjoyed was the pecan...

This restaurant was a great place to have diner. The food was good and plentiful and bar drinks well mixed. Only the salad had too many onions in it but there are those who would disagree with me. We come again

My family and I love a good brunch buffet and Bonwit Inn has one every Sunday from 11am-3:30pm (reservations recommended). They also serve lunch Mon-Sat and dinner 7 days/week. The buffet offers the standard brunch items, omelettes, breakfast items, seafood, hot entrees, cold salads, carving station, breads/muffins/pastries and desserts.They also give you a complimentary bloody mary or mimosa (a bit...

Nice setting for a business dinner. The food overall was good. Service was satisfactory. Calamari was delicious. Surf and Turf entree as good, but a little overpriced. The Yellow Fin Tuna entree was Ok and could have been better, but the Port Soy Glaze needs some work. Tasted like it came out of a bottle.
