Buffet was good. Nice choices. Food could have been a bit warmer, but overall everything was good.
Restaurant is well designed but service was slow.
I wished I could tell you. When we got there for our birthday celebration, the restaurant was CLOSED. Needless to say I was quite upset as I was bringing my friend there.
This breakfast buffet is a great value with lots of high-quality choices. My only complaint was it took some time to get the attention of the kitchen staff to prepare made-to order omelette.
I loved the dessert bar and perfect portion option.
Expensive but one of the better breakfast buffets I've been to. Worth checking out at least once but not affordable to do every day
We made a reservation, but our table was not ready. The buffet was quick for a bite to eat at lunchtime, but it was not exceptional.
Apparently this restaurant is NOT open for lunch on the weekends. I did NOT receive any phone call or notification that they were only open for brunch, even on Mother's Day. Our reservation was for 1145am, and after speaking with the restaurant, it sounded like they just wanted to go home rather than serve us because they closed at Noon.
My wife and I stopped by 8 Block for breakfast, and we were not pleased. You have two options for the buffet - a continental and a step above where you can select warm options. We opted for the warm option which set us back $25 a plate.
While there are plenty of options to choose from, I was not impressed with any of them. They were either flavourless, or you could tell that they had been out for a while. You also get access from the Infused water section, but all of the glasses that they had out looked unclean, so I did not partake. Also be aware that if you want orange juice, or anything other than coffee there is an additional charge on top of the $25 you have already spent.
Since this is a buffet for breakfast, the servers should be quick to assist in any way, but there was no drive behind them, so when you did find someone, they were not fast to react.
To summarize we immediately regretted our decision to have breakfast at this location. There are far better choices.
Tasty, nice selection, and friendly wait staff. We will definitely come back
The food was good, the service was only fair, even for a buffet it was only fair.
Excellent eatery inside a fabulous Hyatt Regency. Breakfast buffet was superb, from the protein options to the starches to the fruits & grains, everything was spot on and tasty. I had 7 servings of most everything and wish I had time for at least 3 more.
8 Block is in the Hyatt Regency, a gigantic convention hotel. It's the only place for a sit-down breakfast. But warning: BUFFET ONLY. We ate here every morning and enjoyed it. Lots of hot coffee, excellent selection of foods - both hot and cold. REALLY good breads. Fresh fruit. Salted AND unsalted butter. I'd go back.
I came back because my first experience was wonderful, but yesterday I brought a friend back for her Birthday Brunch and it was a total BUST!!!!
We got there for 10:30 and by 11, they were breaking down the food stations and not replacing items. The Mimosa Bar was clear across the restaurant from where they seated us and twice we had to ask them to bring out more along with more fruit that didn't have gnats attached to them (disgusting). A lot of the food selections once they ran out weren't replaced. It was a horrible experience and I won't be back and I'll pass the word along as well.
Cheap buffet style food. Plentiful if not particularly enjoyable.
