“Very pleasant. ”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Exceptional service. Many of the staff have worked there for many years. I had the California omelet one morning and another day I tried the granola parfait. Never have I felt do welcome.

Food was good btw.

“Ok for breakfast...”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Decent buffet but very experience. Host/hostess were rude but wait staff were efficient. Nothing special.

“Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

I was disappointed. I excepted an over the top brunch buffet at the Beverly Hilton, this was just above average .

Yes made to order omelettes, no exotic choice there. Slice beef yep . Typical bacon and sausage, Eggs Benedict. I have to say the lobster bisque was very good.

In the cold foods several of the selection presentations were empty or almost empty. Even upon a revisit to the line they had not been replenished.

The crab legs were few and watery meat.
The shrimp was tough.

The desert choice was about six items, plus cookies. I expected more.

The service however was excellent. My champagne glass was always attended to.

OK, but not worth a special drive to visit.

“Breakfast was lukewarm”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Reasonable variety of food for breakfast but found the 'hot food' (bacon etc) was a bit lukewarm. Noticed when we were leaving that you can actually order from a menu but this was not offered to us when we were seated.

“No breakfast on Sunday at 11:30”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Very disappointed that they will not serve breakfast after 11:30 on a Sunday morning. The place is so beautiful and located right next to the pool. We so wished we had gotten there sooner. I think on a Sunday they should make an exception.
