    The Atrium is a very pretty restaurant in The DoralArrowood Hotel. There is a band that plays and when we were there it was nice having live background music. We felt the buffet selections were somewhat limited but what was there was very well prepared. Overall it was a very nice way to spend Saturday night !

    Good and plentiful buffet. Attentive service for the Sunday brunch. But they had a party with about 50 people that made the whole area VERY NOISY. Went with older people because it's a quite place so all can hear, but when you have 50 people for a party with the "regular" diners, the large group overwhelms the whole place and make is way too noisy.

    We booked a reservation online and received a confirmation email. We reserved for dinner for 6 people, including family members that drove from NJ to go specifically to the Atrium. Upon our arrival we were informed that the restaurant was sold out, and our reservation could not be honored. The staff at the desk was extremely rude. We had 2 children that were hungry and we had to find another restaurant for dinner. We were very disappointed with this experience and, needless to say, will not be returning

    The Atrium Sunday brunch is our go to place for special occasions. The ambiance is wonderful. The service is always attentive. The cold table foods, the salads, the carved meats, omelet station and desserts are always quite good. However the hot dishes need improvement. For example the paella is no resemblance to authentic paella.

    We went for brunch for my husbands first Father's Day. I guess the waiter didn't like young people bc he doted on all the old people at the tables around us like crazy and we had to flag him down for ever little thing. I literally watched him scan all his tables in his section and completely bypass ours! Impossible to get a champagne during the meal and coffee and tea at the end of our meal. Overall Food was great service terrible and be prepared for old people GALORE at this place, unless that was a fluke bc it was Father's Day.

    We celebrated Fathers Day at the brunch and it was a wonderful experience. The staff was so accommodating and pleasant that it felt like a personal party.

    We took our son, daughter-in-law, 21 month grandson and 20 year old hungry nephew student at Sarah Lawrence to dinner. The buffet was very well stocked with variety to satisfy all. The Peruvian mashed potatoes (purple) were a huge hit. The selections for dessert were very well displayed and incredibly delicious. Everyone enjoyed the attentive staff who paid special attention to our grandson. A great time.

    Service was the best I've ever had. Attentive and waiters only seemed to appear when you needed them and were prompt with any request. This made for an intimate and relaxing setting for Valentine's Day. Food was very good. Short ribs were cooked to perfection. I don't expect a large selection on Valentine's Day, but luckily there was one. Only issue was there were 5 different styles of potatoes and only a couple of other choices for other sides/vegetables. More options would have been nice.

    Food was excellent. Although we went for the seafood buffet which was advertised on their website, it is seasonal. The seafood starts in April. Now it's lamb. Which was right up my alley. Leg, shank, chops you name it. Cooked to perfection. The sides were a little limited but god none the less. Highly recommended. The Pub bar was a great atmosphere after dinner. Did breakfast the morning after. HORRIBLE pastries. Mini muffins were rocks the French toast was insulting and the bacon tough. Need more accurate labeling for cream cheeses and other condiments. Lox would be a great addition. Only if the bagels are fresh though.

    We attended the Sunday bruch to celebrate a dear friends birthday. At first they were going to sit us at an awkwardly placed table even though we had reservations. The staff was responsive in changing our table to a more comfortable table. The food and service was good and we enjoyed our day. I have to say it was on the costly side taking the price per person and the aded service charges. I would recommend this restaurant but would stress the cost factor which would prevent me from coming back as often. The atmosphere was very nice. We enjoyed the background music and the magician.

    The night we went they booked a Wedding reception. They had the coctail hour in the main lobby above us. For that whole time it was VERY noisey with kids running all around. Due to the bad weather, there were only five tables with people for the buffet. One large group and 4 couples. I would expect, with so few patrons the service would be good. But the reverse was true. The staff took advantage of the "slow night" and the service was awful. We had to wait for our server to appear every time. It took 15 minutes just to order a bottle of wine to begin our meal. The bread was not freash, the potato chips were worse, and the Roast Beef was tough to eat. Not worth the $190.00 I spent to celebrate our anniversary!

    The Atrium at the Doral Arrowwood was recommended to us by friends. The evening was terrific. The buffet was varied, the food fresh, and the value was great. The chef's continually monitored the buffet items, and small hot trays were refreshed when needed. There were no large trays of anything to keep everything fresh. The pasta to order station was a great way to sample many sauces and ingredients. There was a four piece band that was perfect for the room. Not overloud, and mixed holiday tunes with pop selections. We danced the night away. The wait staff was fantastic. Attentive, but not intrusive. A Westchester treasure for a special night. Will definitively go back with guests......

    The food was decent but the wait staff was not properly trained or supervised. There was no attention to detail, like bringing hot water for tea or instructing the guest about what was offered. There was a 29%surcharge put on the bill automatically which was very unexpected and not deserved. Everything seemed tired and a little rundown.

    The brunch usually has something for everyone. The food has not been consistent over the years, but we usually try to go at least once or twice a year to celebrate. A magician makes his rounds but I am not a fan of him, the rest of my table always enjoys the tricks, but I just want to eat and catch-up and not see a guy perform tricks. They replaced the magician who is usually there so that means he makes himself known. Worth the try at least once.

    We have enjoyed brunch at the Atrium numerous times often with family and friends for special occasions. On Sunday we were there for our anniversary.This time the quality of the food was not the same. The salad bar had a tasteless quinoa salad and kale salad, the field greens had only a few tiny slivers of portobello mushrooms and the shrimp had to be peeled. Not what you expect at a quality brunch. The omelette was burned.-very disappointing. The paella was nothing like an authentic dish. There was NO flavor to the rice. I could continue but won't.

    Dined on 9/2/2012
    Went for brunch and thought it was very well done. Often brunch is a lot of so-so food that's been sitting out too long. This was quite high quality, and even though I am vegetarian, there was lots to eat. However, the price tag, of $55 makes it something I would only do on a special occasion. I am not one of those people who, seeing a buffet, eats enough for a week. So the meal I had, while good, was overvalued at that price. However, I realize that by having such variety and good quality food, that the price is reflective of what they put out. I just don't eat a lot of that food, and don't like to walk away from a meal feeling uncomfortably full.

    The food was good but nothing special. The service was great, the food came on time and the waiter was really nice. The ambiance wasn't very good, the decor looks old and there wasn't too many people (we went on a weekday) so it was kind of sad, maybe it's because it's such a big dinning room that I felt like isolated. I think is a great place to go for a brunch but if you want to have a date with your husband I would prefer to go to a more trendy place.

    The food was delicious - there WAS a menu, but the waiter didn't want to give it to us! The buffet was HUGE and even the "appetizer and salad bar" version of the buffet included more than enough lunch choices - and that was reasonable. The one thing that really, really irks me is that they charge an 18% "service charge" for EACH AND EVERY PERSON, regardless of whether the service is excellent or horrible. They can't call it a "gratuity" because a gratuity is "something given without claim or demand." You have NO CHOICE. This restaurant clearly caters to corporate types, so maybe they don't care. We really thought the food was terrific, so if I were nearby, I wouldn't hesitate to return here except for that stupid tip thing.

    The food was up to the usual standard that we have heretofore experienced, but we were tremendously disappointed with the music for our special occasion. It was loud and not the type of dance music that has drawn us in the past. We made mention of it to the leader of the band, but there was virtually no adjustment afterwards and we left quite early. The evening convinced us that we will go elsewhere in the future to celebrate our anniversary. This was supposed to be a special occasion that turned out to be expensive and very ordinary.
