Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

Brunch was very good. Great basket of pastries and butter and jelly. Berkeley scramble was fresh good option for vegetarians. French toast was also good.

“Service was horrible”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

This was recommended by the hotel concierge
Arrived early with a reservation
Waiter seem to rush us to order then we waited 90 minutes for any food...
Tried to get his attention but was ignored.
After several attempts to get his attention, had to get up to find a manager
Food was not as advertised on menu!
Disappointed!

“Great brunch/birthday party for 12”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Celebrated a major birthday party with 12 in our party. Excellent, rectangular table arrangement was setup in the front cafe area - everyone could easily see and converse with with everyone else. The food, drink, and service were all outstanding.

“Very good restaurant”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Good food, good wine list, good service. Scallops were perfect, Steak done to perfection; deserts worth a separate trip for presentation and taste.

Overall great value and Great food.

“Great brunch”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We had brunch reservations elsewhere but decided we weren't up to it and wanted something more laid back. We walked from our hotel to RIS and enjoyed the brunch with the unlimited mimosas. The biscuits were great and we both enjoyed our entrees.
