Kids love it. Lots of variety and could pick their own food and put it on a tray.

The buffet was beyond belief, my list would be very short if I put what it didn't have - but let me tell you a few things it did have, Lobster Thermidor, King Crab, Snow Crab, Dungeness Crab, Lamb, Prime rib, Sushi, Sashimi, Miso Soup, and miles and miles more of awesome food. The staff was over the top - the manager actually sat with us for 15 minutes and shared stores - Again my favorite place to eat - period!

I have never seen such an incredible brunch buffet! Cost was around $40 - but well worth it.

They had everything - King Crab Legs, Russian Crab Legs, Mussels/Oysters (One of the two, not sure I don't eat them), Shrimp, Sushi, Sushi Station, Delicious Crepes filled with fresh berries, Taco Station (not that great-guy at that station isn't pleasant or helpful either), Carved Meat (I don't eat), Eggs Benedict, and numerous delicious side dishes, salads, fresh fruit, desserts (couldn't eat any-stuffed), etc. There was alot of food, and many unique items. There were so many things to try and delicious items, just wish I could have fit more in.

I loved that they provide handwipes at your table - they were much needed and appreciated.

The service was outstanding, our waiter was very attentive and there with anything we needed, juice, champagne (included), coffee, more handwipes, etc.. All the staff was great.

Immediately afterwards I was overstuffed, sorry I ate so much, and regretting that I went - but funny thing I would absolutely go again in a heartbeat! I would probably travel to the area just to go there again.

The good part is they are right next to Universal Studios (they provide free shuttle bus service there). So we were able to waddle off part of what we ate at the outside Boardwalk.

This restaurant is located inside the hilton universal, next to the universal studios. Great food, though can be a bit pricey for dinner. Staff very friendly and attentive.
