  • I was a little disappointed......
    Peggy
    Dined on 4/7/2013
    I was a little disappointed...... Everything was mediocre. The coffee and desserts were good though. The waiter was missing a lot of the time and left pieces of food on the floor for most of the meal. There was 3/4 of a big cookie sitting on the floor near our table for most if the time we were there. The fruit salad was very disappointing as was the French toast, bacon , and chipped beef. This was a little disappointing since this brunch was more expensive than other Sunday brunches in the area. I will not be back again.

    The dinner at the Desmond Hunt Room was outstanding. The waitress was very attentive. The food was amazing. The fillet melted in your mouth and was cooked to perfection as I requested medium rare. My husband ordered medium. I would definitely return for another dinner to celebrate a special occasion or anytime I wanted an exceptional dining experience. The brunch was dissapointing. The waitress that we had should consider another occupation. I ordered tea. She brought out Lipton's Tea. I had to ask if there were other tea options only then did she bring the other tea choices. She didn't ask if we needed anything. I had to get her attention to order off the special menu. I had to get the hostess to bring me milk for my tea.

    Had a very nice dining experience with a group of 6 on a Sunday night for dinner. It was very quiet in the dining room and the service was great. Great brushetta for the table and really good bread basket. Everyone in my party enjoyed their soups / salads and entrees. The only thing I would have liked were some off-menu specials - the entree list wasn't too long and one person in the group had a hard time deciding what to get, but other than that, everything was great.

    First time for Brunch at the Desmond. Very happy with the overall experience. The Hunt room at the Desmond is quite large with a significant number of tables. Today, Father's Day, a lot of very large parties, kids and energy was in the rooms. The overall food was very good. Two omelette stations were available with the crowd, but it still took over 15 minutes to acquire your eggs. A little heavy handed on the oil - so I would request a dry omelette. The other food options were the typical carving station, scrambled eggs, bacon, cod, fresh salads, (beet salad which was very good) and optional foods to be ordered from waiter consisting of eggs benedict, waffles and pancakes. Eggs benedict was a little watery but good.
