“Excellent buffet”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Buffet was excellent with nice choices. Little pricey for a quick dinner though. Waiter really nice but for the price I expect more attention to filling drinks and fresh silverware and clearing of plates.

Hi, highstandards1034,

We are so glad you enjoyed the food from the buffet! Inattentive service, however, does not make us very happy. Even though you dined with us back in January, I will make sure to pass this information on to management. We desire our staff to be sensitive to your needs and to go above and beyond your expectations.

We would love to have another chance for our staff to prove themselves to you. Please let me know if I can help with future dining plans.

Sincerely,

Ally Castaneda

“Great buffet!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I have eaten at this buffet in several of my stays at the Rosen Center and it is a great option for when you don't want to grab a sandwich at the deli but need to eat quick. Full salad bar, great hot food selection and tons of desserts!

“food”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

not bad but expensive, one staff member was extremely rude to a guest so they gave them their meal for free, if your tipping 40% you should be ok!

“Great salad menu”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

I had the Caesar salad with chicken and it was superb. I don't usually order a Caesar unless they toss it in front of me, but I tried it at the suggestion of a colleague and it was excellent. Others at my table ordered salads and all had strong reviews... other stuff, not so much. Just OK, not memorable, but nothing wrong with them at all.
