My husband and I were very impressed from the moment we walked in the door. I am a vegan and when our hostess checked us in she saw the note on the computer about my dietary needs and made sure I was taken care of for the rest of the evening. Food was excellent. Jose the chef is clearly passionate about what he does and enjoys serving his food to people. I was worried about it being a "buffet" but I observed that they keep the food covered unless they are serving it to you so it stays hot and fresh. The chef is more than willing to tell you every ingredient of each dish he has made. There are LOTS of choices for dessert. They even had vegan dessert both nights! The salad bar is the best I have ever had. I don't anticipate that my husband and I will eat anywhere else in Leavenworth again!

We stayed at the Sleeping Lady & dinner &breakfast at the Kingfisher were included in our package so that's why we ate there. Dinner was pretty bad - our server was horrible & the food wasn't very good or varied. I was looking forward to our meal there as I had read some great reviews, but the "buffet" was really just a salad bar with some desserts & then one meal option. Breakfast was ok - but don't expect any custom options such as an omelet bar or pancake station for the kids. Very basic eggs, bacon, potatoes, etc. Dinner for myself & 2 young kids (4 & 6) would have been $100 - very overpriced for the value in my opinion.

Apparently brunch didn't work out as well for the Kingfisher as it is no more. My wife and I visited the Kingfisher a couple of years ago when they were serving brunch. We were very satisfied with the selection and quality. As we don't overnight at the Sleeping Lady Resort brunch works best for us. Now if one wants a late breakfast one must show up just before it ends at 10. Our reservation was for 9:45.

In spite of all that the breakfast fixings were very good and the absence of the lunch items of a brunch were not missed. The hot buffet line is a bit narrow in its offerings (no eggs Benedict for example) but the basics were there; eggs, meats, pan cakes and pizza(?).

The grain selections were comprehensive and high quality with scones, croissants, bagels and natural cold cereals galore. Great, designer jams and jellies are a nice touch.

Service was good, actually better than we remembered as this was one of the weak points of past visits. Shortly after we secured our hot plate and got seated our server told us that the hot line would close in a few minutes. Shortly thereafter he informed us that they would hold the line open for another twenty minutes. Nice.

In retrospect, though, they should have closed the damn thing down anyway. My second pass through for more bacon and sausage did my belt line no good. But is was Xmas, what the hay!
