  • GREAT BRUNCH
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/2/2014
    TOTALLY ENJOYED MY BRUNCH EXPERIENCE AT ALMANSOR COURT. THE GOLF SETTING IS VERY NICE. THE FOOD WAS EQUAL TO ALL SUNDAY BUFFET BRUNCHES THAT I HAVE ATTENDED. REALLY LIKED THE ATTENTIVE SERVICE AND THE GENEROUS POURING OF THE CHAMPAGNE. WILL DEFINITELY CHOOSE FOR GROUPS OF 20 FOR THE DINING AREA AND FOR LARGER GROUPS IN THE MEETING ROOMS.

    This is the best place for Sunday Brunch. Gary, manager is the BEST !! He is friendly and cares about ALL the guest. Never had a better experience with the "boss". Love all the servers...Hugo is my favorite, but they all are wonderful. The back up staff to the servers are wonderful. Thank you Gary for your wonderful staff. Oh can't forget the hostess, they are really good under the pressure, always have a smile no matter what. Thank you!

    The place was hopping for Sunday brunch, but the food was not great. The clams were smelly, no prepared eggs - only an omelet station - bread & butter we found later on the dessert station. Bacon and sausage overcooked and dry. Salad dressing only ranch or Italian. Many dishes not refilled often when they ran out. Would not return.

    We were seated within ten minutes of checking in. We were greeted by our waitress and upon returning with our first plate of food we had pitchers of orange juice and water with a cold bottle of champagne. Our used plates wrellere quickly taken away and the sodas kept coming. It was a good Sunday brunch for us.

    Brunch was great, a lot of varieties. Service was excellent. Sitting outside was fun, but it was hot after awhile.... but it didn't stop us to enjoy our company and food. They honored the coupon without any problems. Bill came out so cheap. We all are happy and we posted our pictures on Facebook. Hopefully others will try it too.

    Nice to sit on the patio, overlooking the golf course to enjoy a nice Sunday brunch. The bottomless champagne is a nice added touch. The desserts have markedly improved since the first time my wife and I came here just about 2 years ago.

    We went here for their special Father's day brunch and while I was impressed with the shear volume of choices in the food I found very little of it particularly inspiring. With a few exceptions, such as the cheese blitzes and baked salmon, the spread reminded me of my college dorm cafeteria. The omelette station was impressive but I do not think this place was worth the $32 they charged per person for the special brunch. On top of it the place was overcrowded, noisy, and the service was not really that great either. I've been to alot of brunches for Father's day and we will not be back to this one. However, for anyone with children I would recommend it because it is guaranteed they will find something that they like from the rooms of food.

    for 32 years we went to Charlie Brown's for our family special events. I did a lot of research to replace our favorite restaurant that closed their doors. I picked your restaurant hoping to please my family. Our first Visit was on Easter, my family like it and we invited friends for Mothers Day, Father's day and 2 Birthdays, we took groups of 10. Arturo our waiter is awesome. It is Amazing when your family is enjoying a great time.

    I enjoyed the quick access to food and back to the table. I thought the prime rib was very good. I enjoyed the sushi rolls. The seasoned potatoes were warm/cold. The same was true of the following: Asian roll, refried beans, enchilada, and rice. The menudo soup was not appetizing. I enjoyed the desert table and the freezer with ice cream. I thought the refills of champagne and coffee were slow in coming. I might suggest more sea food and hispanic food varieties.

    Came for Mother's Day brunch, but from other reviews, I assume they serve virtually the same things for any brunch. Great environment, the right dining hall overlooks the lake/pond that's outside. The lake/pond is filled with ducks and baby turtles. Food overall was mediocre, good selection for brunch but the taste/quality of food was barely passable. Unlimited champagne/mimosas along with drinks. Overall not horrible but just know that you're coming here for the ambiance and not food.

    We were pleasantly surprised at the Mother's Day Brunch! Our previous visits were for planned luncheons by a group. We had a table for four and it was not known to any staff that the four represented four (4) generations, the youngest being 10 years old! There was something special for all our taste. I the eldest at 85 enjoyed things I did not dare serve at home, and the youngest having a ball enjoying all her favorite foods. The two in between (also female) were well pleased with everything, especially the wait staff. Your Waiter's and Host are exemplary employees. Thank you for making three mothers enjoy their day!

    The set up for the buffet was really scattered so do a walk through before you pick up a plate. The choices are pretty varied but you find things in corners and in weird places but the food is plentiful. The other brunchers act like they just got off a prison ship and lack any manners so be prepared for a grab and growl atmosphere. The waiters are in short supply but really try hard so do tip for a good service.

    It was your typical brunch set up. Omelet station, carving station, waffle bar, hot entress, salads, desserts. But it wasn't anything worth writing home about. And especially at the price of $33.95 per person. It was way too crowded. I use a walker and even though people and staff were very kind and moved their chairs out of my way, it was very difficult to get around. And I wasn't the only person there with a walker or wheelchair. It was an all you can eat buffet, you serve yourself, yet their "recommended" tip was 18%! They include it on their bill so if you want to change it, you have to rewrite the bill. I think that is in very bad taste. All their workers there were very nice and tried to help you out as much as possible.

    Never gave us our drinks when we sat down. Got very thirsty. Had to ask twice to bring drinks. Waiters could not not figure out who was responsible for our table. Food not very tasty. Only liked my waffle and sausage. Over priced for service and food provided. Food lines too long. Kept running out of certain foods. Some brunch items over cooked and hard to chew. Under cooked rice. Gave a very low tip. Can't believe I paid 83.00 for nasty food.

    After searching the internet for a nice Sunday Brunch, I found most of them were either very experience or a hole in the wall places. Almansor Court's price is reasonable. The food was great with a lot of choices, and the service was great. My family celebrated my son's birthday there for a Sunday Brunch. We had a great time and everyone was pleased with the choice. Highly recommended and we will be back.

    The brunch featured separate buffets which corresponded to each banquet room. Think of a conference room with walls of windows, overlooking the Alhambra golf-course. There was the basic brunch fare, with unexpected items like Lumpia and ribs. I wish I was not wearing a linen suit, as I really wanted to have at the ribs. The Easter Bunny made an appearance and the Champange (California sparkling) never stopped flowing. Highly recommended.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    Although it was Easter Sunday brunch, I expected more. I have been there for Eater brunch several times in the past & it was what I expected, busy, noisy but the food was decent. This year the food was disappointing. There was no sushi, as advertised, and the choices of meats were downgraded with the exception of the seafood. As food ran low or out, it was not replenished & this was at 11:00am, not near the closing time. There was nothing special for Easter. The deserts were not even up to par with what is on their regular Sunday brunch. This will probably be the last time I go for Easter brunch. For the price, I can find many other choice for good food.

    The food choices for a brunch did not include pancakes and the carving station only had one meat choice, The salads choices were fine. The Mexican food dishes lacked freshness and did not have chorizo or any fajitas or carne asada or carnitas. There was not a taco bar which featured sides for tacos such as tomatoes or cheese. I feel the price did not meet the quality or the selection of food items available. Only positive is the dessert bar had many choices.

    I like the relaxed feel of this place - sitting in any of the dining rooms you have a wonderful view of the lush green golf course outside. I love having the option of eating food from different cultures during the same meal. They had an omelette bar, sliced meat station, Belgian waffle station and a room full of hot items from mashed potatoes, lumpia, beef ribs, pork ribs, bacon, sausage, cheese blintz, fish, biscuits and gravy. Of course their were several kinds of salad and many seafood items to choose from. Delicious! Couldn't find one bad thing.

The food was delicious, the selection was great featuring many ethnic foods to satisfy everyone. The entire staff was attentive and helpful. It was a very pleasant Sunday brunch. I would now like to try it for a romantic night out to see what the evening menu offers. Thank you for a delightful experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/16/2014
    My party and I attended Sunday Brunch, which was amazing! The only thing that made this experience bad was we were charged for an extra person, then when we notified the server she proceeded to argue that indeed an 11th person had been in attendance. We literally had to show her our picture and count the participants of our party. Once that was settled she then asked for her tip! Everyone in the party has left a tip but she argued that she had to share the tip with 2 bus boys and a hostess! This was the only bad thing otherwise Almansor Court is great, but the waitress Guadalupe needs more training on how what appropriate and inappropriate when being of service!

    My first time at Almansor Court. The buffect is huge with lots of variety and great tasting food. The service fantastic- friendly, very quick to clear plates and readily available to refresh your drink. The only negative I found was being seated by a door that slammed each time someone opened it. This door led to covered outside patio seating and was extremely annoying. Plus the cold wind coming through the door at each opening did not help. Next time I will not sit there.

    I haven't been to Almansor Court brunch in years. I was so excited because I used to love it. The food was mediocre at best and the service was ok but you have to pour your own drinks from a pitcher they leave at the table. The table was wobbly and any time you cut your food someone else's coffee would spill. I have been to way nicer brunches where the food is great and a lot less expensive. I am sad to say that I will never go back again.
