    Eques was the best meal I had while in Bellevue. It serves a great buffet breakfast with some unusual NW flare. Great food, great service, and great location (inside hotel area). Just wished it was open past 10:00 AM.

    We chose Eques because of good reviews. Quality of the food is good, lots of variety in the buffet. They also offer gluten free toast and pancakes. We ordered off the menu and were a disappointed. My scrambled eggs has a smoky flavor and were overcooked (maybe they were cooked in bacon fat?). My friend ordered poached eggs. One was overcooked and one was undercooked. Our plates of food was not overly generous, like most restaurants, which is fine because we are not big eaters, but I was disappointed to only receive 1 small slice of toast. The coffee is very strong and we had to put lots of cream and sugar just to drink it, and only drank one cup. We won't be going back.

    The best brunch we've ever been to and we are Chicago foodies who travel a lot. The buffet was amazing - something for everyone and too many choices for some of us! What really made if the best was the service. Unbelievable attention to detail and guest needs. They handled special requests with ease and were genuinely pleasant and thoughtful. Loved this place!!!

    Stick with the prepared items on the menu. The only moderately interesting prepared food available on the buffet were the omelets, which were nothing to write home about. If you think $20 is a good price for a plate of plain pancakes, salami, cheese, and berries, though, you'll love it. Even my delicious $4 glass of OJ didn't make up for it.

    Our Father's Day Brunch bill was over $200 for a family of 4. For a 35min visit... and a modest selection of meals, absolutely too much.

    I always try to book here for special occasion brunches. Went here recently for my daughter's 9th birthday family brunch and was extremely happy with the service. Our server, Kimberly went out of the way to make it special for us with a birthday banana-split pancake for the birthday girl. Thank you!

    I had met someone for the first time and we had very serious things to discuss. Although I felt we were taking too much time at the table but the waitress kept assuring me that there was no hurry. It was great and appreciated.

    Pretty average at best. Kind of a small detail.... Not one person from the time we entered to the time we left, wished my wife (who had a three year old and an infant with her) Happy Mother's Day. The selection of food was small. I will say the omelets were good.

    Not bad, but a disappointment based upon Eques #1 ranking for breakfast on Trip Advisor and other publications. A hotel like restaurant in presentation and food quality. Not terribly authentic and we found the dishes tried too hard to be fancy -- ended up so so tasting. Not bad but not great.

    Great brunch and especially the server was great! Ordered a Bloody Mary that you make yourself at the mixing bar. The server brought the glass and shot of vodka, spilling a drop or two of the vodka while pouring into the glass. She brought another full shot of vodka to make up for the little dribble - on the house!

    Great Food! The omelet that the Chef made for me was Excellent. The sausages that they served there were absolutely the best that I have ever had. There are lots of choices for everyone's tastes. I would like to try their Ala cart menu the next time as I saw some delicious looking dishes being served. We will definitely go back. Be sure to make a reservation in order to get in.

    Very good food. If you're going on the late side be sure to take advantage of the brunch happy hour from noon - 1:30 for $3 off entrees and buffet. The Bellevue Hyatt hosts large groups so be aware that it can be crowded and chaotic. Eques seems well equipped to handle volume but get a reservation or you may have a long wait.

    Made a reservation on open table for a group of 6. Strange, they called left a msg saying that they were booked and could not honor our open table reservation. Showed up, place was packed, had to wait a bit for a table. Buffet was slammed and looking a bit worn. Long wait for order, omelet came toward the end of the meal, juice refill never showed up. Definitely not up to their usual standards. Hope they pop back!

    We LOVED our brunch at Eques. It was a family special day...and we wanted to have special options. Some did the brunch (very well priced!) and some ordered just what they wanted. Brunch had fantastic items such as local Salumi salamis, great sausage options, unusual cheeses, and beautiful berries. The service - was outstanding...best I've ever had! The family actually were thrilled to find this breakfast...cause we'll be back!

    I made my reservation only a few days in advance. All my special requests were met and the table was ready and waiting for us when we arrived to celebrate a birthday brunch. The French Toast birthday special is a French Toast you've never experienced. Light and lucious and healthy!!! Service was excellent

    Enjoyed brunch at this new restaurant. The $3 mimosa and bloody mary were the draws and were great. There were buffet options that were priced well as well as a la carte items. We were celebrating my birthday and were served tiramisu pancakes as a treat. Sweet, warm, delicious! The service was great. The noise level was low, even though we were seated by a large party. It was great to be able to enjoy time with a friend. Will be back.

    Our server was terrible. We got our food but waited for the longest time for our drinks and condiments. Finally when we got our drinks my glass had a huge crack in it. How could my waiter not notice that or better yet the bartender. Well the waiter was no were to be found so I just told the front staff. The girl had no expression when we walked in or even when we told her about the cracked glass. Thank god another lady working came and replaced my drink. We finished our meals then our server came with the bill but I'm still looking for the condiments. Terrible service for a restaurant in the Hyatt.

    The service was extremely slow if you didn't select from the brunch. The items available on the brunch were one fourth of what I have seen on brunches in other hotels. For some reason the preparation of omelets ended at noon. Strange.... i'd not recommend it to anyone.
