Reviewed May 29, 2012

One of the restaurant wait staff was rude. It wasn't my waiter but someone else on the restaurant staff. Overpriced for the type of food that was served.

“Slow Food , not in a good way”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

Went for breakfast here. Waited a long time to order and then to get the check. they didn't seem to be ready to open (it was 7 AM.) Food was expensive and given that it was early Sunday AM they did not have a buffet.

“One expects more when dining here”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

My friend and I went here for breakfast while we were in San Jose to attend the US Figure Skating Championship. We decided to treat ourselve to a more upscale breakfast knowing that the rest of the day we'd be subject to arena food. The restaurant was not prepared for the number of folks who were here that morning. The buffet offerings did not justify the price tag, so my friend and I split two breakfast entrees. The banana nut pancakes were loaded with bananas and nuts yet tender. The crab Benedict was improperly executed - the crab part was wonderfully prepared but the yolk of the poached egg was almost "hard cooked". The server corrected the problem by bringing a plain poached egg to the table tho the rest of the food on the plate had gone cold by that time. A restaurant in a hotel of the Fairmont's caliber should be better able to deliver on all fronts.

“Great Breakfast Buffet”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

I only ate breakfast here, and it was very good. Large variety of food and they will cook eggs to your order as part of the buffet.
