    I brought a friend to the Circle Brunch to celebrate her 75th birthday. We were given a window table, and my friend received a Happy Birthday plate of beautiful and delicious desserts. All of the food was just exceptional. What a surprise to have lobster included in the brunch menu! Our service person was attentive and efficient. We really enjoyed the harpist who was so accommodating for photos. Just a great experience.

    We came to the brunch to celebrate my birthday and our wedding anniversary.. What a treat!! The atmosphere and setting were wonderful, and so was the food. It was interesting, different, varied and delicious. We were not rushed at all. It was nice to have the music during brunch as well. It was a very festive time.

    The location is amazing. The service was good, and the selection was unreal. It blew me away. The price is high, our bill was $240 for two people, but it was well worth it. From the caviar, to the champagne, to the standing rib roast, to the unreal deserts, it was just amazing!

    At over $100/pp for brunch, one would expect an amazing experience. The Breakers' Sunday brunch tries to live up to its price tag, does not achieve that, but comes close. The drive up the building is worth a portion of the price-a spectacular driveway leading up to a stunning ediface which looks like a castle by the sea. The room where the brunch is seated is likewise royal in proportion-huge, high ceilings, elaborate decoration. And the spread of food is breathtaking, with salad and cheese selections, omelet and eggs benedict stations, king crab leg and cracked lobster tails, and carving stations including prime rib and lamb chops. Wide variety, but only average tasting. Add unlimited champagne, Breakers is great, not quite amazing.

    You haven't been to a. real Brunch until you've experienced the Breakers. Extremely personable while treating every guest with the utmost respect. I've been to brunch many times over the last 20 years . Friends say it's pricey however it's worth every penny! I always leave wanting to stay longer ! Or going home and returning the next day! The presentation and food selections leaves every last guest extremely well fed. and happy! Truly a memorable experience every time .

    The food & service were excellent. They do an amazing job at not seating too many tables at once so there is no "lines" or wait for food. We arrived at 11am & stayed until 2pm. We were celebrating a birthday, & our waiter brought a decorative dessert plate with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate on the plate, while a harpist played Happy Birthday. An excellent & surprising touch!! A "must-do" for brunch for any occasion, or "just because."

    We were happy to see and taste all the varieties of food presented. However the fresh fruits ,grilled veggies were sparse as was the fresh white fish. We got there at 11 30 and it seemed some of the food items were gone and not refilled?? The desserts were not labeled as the main food items. This would have helped. Healthier choices in breads and food prep would have been appreciated. Too much food either fried or in some kind of sauce. Service seemed to favor larger parties. We were not familiar with all that came with the brunch....ie hot drinks.. We did like the harp player. That was a great touch!

    I thought the experience was wonderful. I was particularly impressed with the five star service. The first time my date and I ever had breakfast serenaded by a harp. The price I expected per Open Table was around $50.00 per person when it turned out to cost $100.00 per person. Sticker Shock. Perhaps your data here could be corrected. Byron Petersen

    The food and presentation was amazing but the service was not up to par. SEveral times throughout the brunch we had plates stacked at our table with wait staff walking by not picking them up. In 2 cases the waiter actually came by and replaced the utensils but left the used plates on the table and did not come back. We had to ask other servers to take the used plates.

    For $95 a person this was not worth it at all. The food really wasn't that great. It tasted average at best. The only thing that was good was the dessert but for $95 one would be better to save their money and go to a better restaurant. This was a disappointment. Nice to see the hotel but not worth the price, not even close.

    This was a Mother's Day celebration brunch and for us it was a real treat. While pricey, for the variety, amount and freshness of the food and the courteous staff it was truly worth it. I would definitely go back for Sunday brunch. I would also recommend leaving a couple hours open afterwards for a nap.

    Finding the ultimate brunch on vacation is always on our to do list. Therefore we were excited to finally try the Breakers famous array. Due to comparison, this one fell sort. The focus on seafood and dessert was appreciated, minus the respective presentation. The entree items albeit tasty lacked creatity, ( eggs Benedict an embarrassment), as did the remainder of the buffet. We hoped for a greater offering of fruits, vegetables, salads and cheeses. The circle brunch gives the diner an ultimate experience if you care more about where you are , shame on them!

    I visited my father in Palm Beach area and wanted to have a special and elegant brunch. The Breakers did not disappoint! The setting is very elegant and bright and tables were not too close so you could enjoy your own party. Food was excellent, we especially enjoyed the seafood and the desserts were fabulous. I have not had such good service for a long time. The harpist was a nice touch. We will definitely go back. Pricey but worth it!

    I've been in this industry for while now, but no place can't even compare to The Circle Brunch. I know what it's mean to have the right service staff & also the crème de la crème. The buffet was like heaven, everything I ever wanted from a buffet was there. I don't even like buffet, but breakers making me having second thought. From the season key west stone crabs to white sturgeon caviar.. Individual lamb chop, yet dessert was even more incredible. Thank you Mauricio, Prince, Lockdown, Zara, Yvette, and Carlos. The staffs were so professional. Attentive, perfect word to describe my experience INCREDIDBLE... I'll be there every sounds as long I'm in Florida. And Mauricio made it that much more special. Thank you for been so genuine.
