Diner Reviews
  • "Sad to see the decline after Park Hyatt took over for Four Seasons. Service was horrible, food selection considerably smaller. And the once vibrant and busy Sunday brunch had maybe four tables. Not going there again"

  • "I was so very disappointed that you no longer offer the "small plate/salad bar" that you had before the renovation. I raved about California Bistro to all of my friends and was surprised that you no longer offer that venue. I do understand that this may have been a cost consideration, since much of this was labor intensive, however, this did make your restaurant a special experience. Your head waiter Jonathan is always delightful and gracious and helped make my disappointment bearable. Thank you. Liz Schwartz"

  • "Calamari were fried perfectly and the farro salad was really tasty (even a little too much vinegar for my taste). Good service too."

  • "The menu is fine as well, but they excel at both breakfast and lunch. Ample assistance from a professional staff and a family atmosphere that makes it fun for all ages."

  • "Service was slow and was under staffed. Also, there was a 1 per customer limit on Lobster Tails. Lobster tails were per request and only 1 lobster tail was delivered per couple to split. This was not noted on the Website Menu."

  • "We went to the Sunday Brunch thinking that this new replacement would be on par with the former Vivavce Brunch, it wasn't. The atmosphere is good and the selection of food is okay, but the price of $50 per person is far too high for what you actually receive. The one bonus is that the brunch includes unlimited Bloody Marys. Unfortunately, the service was horrible -- one would expect outstanding service at the Park Hyatt, but that was not the case."

  • "Food was OK and service clueless but in the end adequate. We had requested a guiet table and were seated in a smaller room with screaming kids all around. We understood that many families were staying at the hotel but wonder why they didn't reserve one of the smaller rooms for adults?"

  • "Great restaurant, upscale dining, elegant yet casual furnishings. Menu had individual offerings and a buffet choices of everything, cold plates, and dessert. We ordered individual items, salads, as the buffet offered much more than we felt like eating. Our salads were very good, very fresh ingredients, tasty dressings, and large portions. Nice drink menu to complement your lunch order. Server was very good, personable, helpful with menu selections. Dresscode was listed as casual, I was in shorts, felt a little under dressed as most folks were business casual at a minimum. Nice spot for lunch."

  • "went there for Thanksgiving lunch. over-priced menu for a subpar experience: unpleasant seating arrangement, noisy, average buffet food (seafood and desserts were the highlights). unfortunate since the hotel is impeccable."

  • "Great waitress & service, okay meal; reservations made after the 'lunch crowd' gone - so no rushing. Seating - hostess had to check to see if they had a table 'as I requested'? Hotel needs to examine the job of a valet! American Heritage Dictionary says: 'Parking valet: arrangements provided by a commercial establishment such as a restaurant, whereby patrons leave their cars at the entrance and attendants park and retrieve them'. That didn't translate to the valet captain. He handed me my keys at the entrance, after a luncheon business meeting, and said; 'we're kind of backed up, (handing me my keys), your car is over there (gesturing to the cars) would you mind picking it up yourself?' and walked away. Question: This is a five star hotel?"

  • "If the Scenic View is the best feature it is not a good sign. We opted for the buffet option at $29 p/p. The food overall was just bad with the exception of the desserts table. The entrees we overcooked, dried out, and had just no flavor. There were only 4 tables or so occupied out of 22 or so available. They need an overall to get this to Four Season's level. Very disappointing."
