MacArthur Park - Palo Alto
buffets are greatMy review is of the Mother's Day Sunday brunch buffet. A very nice selection of meats and sides. Dessert options were geared toward people who were too full to eat more than a few more bites. For some reason they pipe in music that is some sort of modern pop mix that is really not suitable for a special occasion with elderly moms.
Lastly, I wish you weren't greeted by counter people with panicked looks on their faces as you walk up to give your name. This place specializes in these big reservation-only buffets but they always seem to be on the edge of chaos trying to organize seating. What brings us back is the great food choices, the friendly service, and the nice atmosphere.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMacParkWonderful old building, very open and comfortable which meant noise carried a bit. Service was initially prompt, but on the Saturday night we were there they appeared a bit understaffed as the primary server missed a thing or two and was not around as often as needed. Food was very good, ribs, chicken, veggies, calamari and the fries were amazing. Cheesecake and brownie for dessert capped off a wonderful dining experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMRemembered betterThis restaurant has amazing ambience. Great staff.

Our waiter was outstanding and great with the kids. I really appreciated the staff person who called me at home to confirm My round table for 10 and make sure it's location was agreeable to me.
