I feel bad saying this but I wasn't overly impressed by the brunch. The breakfast portion was nice. The omelet station was good and didn't have the usual lines at other brunches I have been at. I didn't see much in the lunch area that wowed me. The set up is quite tight with the hot foods being in a... More

Four of us went to the Bonwit Inn for a Sunday brunch (arr. at noon), and had no trouble getting promptly seated. The array of food was staggering and included made-to-order omelettes, fresh sliced turkey and roast beef, shrimp, crab, lox, bagels, blueberry muffins and many salad, fruit, and dessert choice. Friendly, helpful service and a gracious host, co-owner Andrew... More

My family wanted to try someplace new for Sunday brunch so we drove out to The Bonwit Inn. We were seated right away and our waitress Lisa took good care of us. The food, the service, the atmosphere and the price were all excellent. I highly recommend The Bonwit Inn.

We had originally planned a family gathering, back in February. But the snowstorms prevented our plans from going through. So we decided, let's just do a pre-Easter dinner. Steve and Jim, the managers, could not have been more accommodating. We had the private garden room set aside for us. We had planned for about 14, but unexpectedly another of our... More

My family and I have been visiting the Bonwit Inn for over 40 years. It seems impossible to be disappointed here. My husband and I enjoyed a Valentine's Day meal. The service was excellent. We had a cozy seat. We enjoyed appetizers, salad, drinks and a plentiful meal for a reasonable price. The only draw back is that one dining... More

The offer semi-circle booths as well as round tables. Nice warm break and greek style salad is served family style. Their menu is extensive and also caters to a more senior... More

We arrived ahead of our reservation and were seated at the bar. No problem as we were ready for a drink. Friendly bar tenders and good drinks. Moved to dining room and ordered. The family style salad was excellent. After that it was downhill. Two of us ordered the seafood sampler which was not great. The baked clams were soupy... More

We didnt have reservations on a Saturday night, but we didn't need any here. The service was very good, but the food was just average. It wasn't bad, but nothing to write home about.
