    The only thing better than the delicious food served at Sunday Brunch at the Desmond is the experience of the courteous and "sincerely" friendly people who greet you from the minute you walk through the front door until you leave. The eggs benedict and the bread pudding are both an absolute "must!"

    The food was not quite up to what I expected from The Desmond. My pork roast was slightly under done in the center. The presentation was very good. The meal; other than the under done center of pork, was good and well worth the price. My dining partner had no complaints with her meal. The wait staff was very attentive, always ready to take care of our needs.

    We had received a gift certificate to the Desmond for our anniversary. We chose the Hunt Room for its menu - they served prime rib, and that is my husband's favorite. We loved the ambiance of the restaurant, an English hunting club theme. The food was wonderful! My husband said the prime rib was the best he'd ever had. I enjoyed the chicken cordon blue very much, and the snapper soup was delicious. I had strawberry shortcake with homemade biscuits for dessert and my husband had the key lime parfiat - his eyes rolled back in his head when he hit the macaroons that were hidden inside! LOL! The service was good, very friendly weight staff. We really enjoyed our visit and will definitely be back.

Everyone we met was professional, pleasant, and efficient. I was disappointed that a meal that cost over $100 for 2 people was not worth it since the Veal was notvery good.

We were surprised by a beautiful, delicious birthday cake in addition to the desserts we ordered. They really made it a special evening.

    We eagerly anticipated brunch based on Mainline Today's 2008: Best Brunch award. We were hugely disappointed. There were very few choices compared to other places we've been to for brunch. In particular there were no carving stations at all and no fresh or smoked fish other than a lox spread. The layout for brunch was disorganized. We had to wander around to find plates and then to figure out where the line started. We won't be going back to the Desmond for brunch and advise Mainline Today to reconsider how it awards recognition.

We had to ask for plain bagels. There were only 2 raisin and 4 blueberry in the basket the entire time we were there. We have had much better brunch elsewhere.

    The Hunt Room at the Desmond was a pleasant surprise as it is very close to our home. We were greeted like long time customers, the waitstaff was very attentive and we were made to feel right at home. The food was excellent and the presentation was beautiful. Everyone we came in contact with was doing everything to make us feel like we were the most special diners in the Hunt Room. We will surely return for dinner and for the Sunday brunch. The Hunt Room at the Desmond is now on our dining out agenda. We have recommended the Hunt Room to family and friends and we look forward to a return ourselves.

    The restaurant was moderately busy. Our server seemed very busy but kept checking back for drinks and updates. We were not in a rush so this met our needs. Recently updated menu was quite varied and provided a number of very interesting choices. Good blend of restaurant standards as well as innovative fare. We had a great time and will be back.

    One of the benefits of Open Table is finding these gems. This was a totally enjoyable experience from the gregarious hostess, charming waitress, attentive servers and the very comfortable beautiful booth. Definitely a keeper, for the food was as good as the service and both were excellent. We found this place such a delight I don't even want to say more in fear of building up to much expectation in others. Obviously, we loved it.
