“Eaten here 5 mornings straight....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

First, the staff are wonderful. Now this is a buffet and if you are expecting 5 star quality food then apparently you haven't been to a buffet before because it is impossible. That being said there is a wide variety of fruit, eggs, meats, and other dishes to choose from. Every morning there is a different eggs Benedict (yesterday it was striped marlin and arugula

“Buffet breakfast w/ Hawaiian Flair”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

So happy to have popped in for abig buffet breakfast. They had everything and anything you could think of and probably a few thinks you haven't thought of! Enjoyed the steel cut oats, eggs, bacon, macadamia nut pancake, banana bread, and much more topped off with Fairmont Breakfast Tea. Server, Joann, was great!!

“Skip the buffet”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

The hot food wasn't hot, indeed some was outright cold. There were pieces of shell in the noodles, only one short order cook who could not keep up with the demand. All in all a very disappointing experience for a Fairmont hotel.

“Good food, if you have the time.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

My family and I ate here twice during our stay, we ordered breakfast off the menu and thought the food was very good. The problem was that the service for this type (and price) of restaurant was unbearably slow. This was the case both visits and will be the reason we won't be returning. Example: When your children's juice comes after their food is gone....its a little late.
