Good but pricey for Sunday brunch
We were going to a 4pm opera at the Music Center in downtown LA on Easter Sunday, so needed someplace for a late brunch within walking distance. I thought of the Grand Cafe (in the Omni Hotel), where I'd had many pleasant weekday lunches (I worked nearby). I've always enjoyed the varied menu, relatively affordable pricing, and quiet environment, so I made our reservations. Arrival was fine, and the wait staff was friendly and helpful (particularly when they helped to fix our wobbly table). I realized, however, that they were only serving a buffet, which wasn't really what we wanted. However, we decided to enjoy it anyway, since we were already there. It was tasty, but cost $50 per person!!!! Shocked.

Excellent Mother's Day Brunch
I had never been to the Omni hotel before and had found the Grand Cafe through a Google search. The food and the service was outstanding!! I can not say enough great things about this restaurant. It was a special Mother's Day brunch and every mother received a little crown, a long stemmed rose and a cupcake. The food was spectacular and our waitress was warm, friendly and very helpful. Thank you, Grand Cafe, for making Mother's Day extra special!!

We were treated like special guests. Reservation for patio but recieved a call morning of dining and there was a party at three on the patio so they moved us to a fabulous table in the corner with views as nice as on the patio. A nice walk from the Disney Hall.

The Grand Cafe, I wish it
The Grand Cafe, I wish it were open in the evening also!!! It is a most comfortable dining room, and the staff are superb. The Brunch Buffet is GREAT and the menu always has something new and something familiar, but with a twist!
LOVE this place!

top quality ingredients
We went for breakfast buffet. The selection was your usual suspects, but all the ingredients were top notch, down to the smallest details. There wasn't a single thing that was mediocre, each things we tried we exclaimed "oh yeah, this is good". Even my sunny side up eggs were perfect: fluffy egg whites, and rich orange thick runny egg yolks. The lady running the egg/omelet and waffle station was amazing. She was super attentive, offered some special strawberry sauce she made and even brought out cream and fresh strawberries to our table. All in all we were super happy with the excellent quality of food and service. It's not a place for huge selections nor inventive dishes, but it is your hearty usual breakfast done to the the best.

Grand Cafe was very Grand
Grand Cafe proved to be very Grand! The food was delicious and fresh with a highlight on the large portions. Tucked in quietly in the Omni Hotel behind the Museum of Modern Art, this restaurant offers some beautiful scenic views of a fountain and a giant modern art structure. Perfectly positioned to go to the museum or attend a show at the Music Center which we did.
The hamburger was fresh and flavorful and the Turkey club was excellent. The service was fair and accommodating but a bit slow. Overall, an excellent restaurant for lunch and we look forward to visiting again!

Best Birthday ever!
I invited a few of my close girl friends out for brunch at the Grand Cafe for my 25th birthday and we had an ABSOLUTE BLAST! The food was EXCELLENT, the ambiance was great the service/wait staff anticipated our needs which was EVEN BETTER! They kept the endless mimosas coming and really allowed us to have a great time. I made the reservation for the outdoor patio and even though initially it was a little windy (the reservation was at 11:15am) the sun came out and the drinks came with it so we had no worries! We were seated near an outdoor water fountain and within arms reach of the beautiful MOCA which was an extra added touch of class and elegance we all enjoyed. More than half of my party said they'd be coming back! I know I surely will!
