The service was terrible. Our water glasses were never filled, our napkins and silverware were in a pile at the end of the table, the bread was never brought out, the crab bisque was cold & congieled. I ordered a Caesar salad( no croutons or cheese & had a whole drumstick in it) We brought our kids 5&7 for a “fancy” dinner after the Nutcracker, what a disappointment. However, it’s a nice location & was beautifully decorated for the holidays.

A terrible staff! Wait was 58 min for a half full restaurant. We waited at least 10 min to be seated with a reservation because the hostess was not there but instead was chatting with other servers in the back. We ordered a bottle of wine, 10 min later they came back telling us that they did not have it, so we ordered another one, hence, once again, we waited 10 min so they can tell us they do not have it. Finally when we had our wine, they did not make us taste the wine first but instead just the guy served us a glassful of wine!!! After 58 min of waiting the for the meal, the food came completely cold! You would think that at least if you are waiting 58 min for a meal to be served that the food would come fresh, right! At the end of the meal, I had almost to confront the server not to take my plate because the server did not understand/know the bon-ton rules/message from my silverware! I was shocked. This was expected to be a luxurious restaurant, but it is not! So I will never again come back here! We got 10 times better service downtown Savannah where the restaurants are not bragging to be luxurious.

Normally we have had wonderful meals here. We visited for Thanksgiving dinner and it was awful. Food was cold, not as described, they were out of food for fixed menu items, service was extremely slow. Would not visit for a holiday dinner again

The first two courses were wonderful but the dessert was awful. I ordered the creme brûlée but when it came out it was just pudding. The waitress told me the chef forgot the blowtorch! I ordered the peach pie instead and it was even worse! Like canned peaches in a dry and brittle pie crust. I was very disappointed.

It's is a very nice restaurant with a wide variety of options on the brunch. I can't wait until my next trip to Savannah. I'll make sure that I schedule the trip around a time when the brunch is offered.

Excellent. Best brunch in town. We drove from Wayne County, Jesup, GA. I loved the sushi and kids table additions to Thanksgiving brunch. Very nice. The dressing was good but I was not expecting it to be sweet (non traditional). I missed having more vegetables, the pecan pie and the shot glasses of desert. It is not Thanksgiving without pecan pie. Not crazy about the "create your own desert." I always thought the shot glasses were a nice touch; a little taste of everything and no waste.
And our server, Connie, deserves a GOLD star. She was excellent. And I must compliment the valet team. Very friendly and great service.

The Thanksgiving buffet was basic. The entrees were good, but it was all so basic, and at $75/pp too expensive for basic food. There was no traditional desserts for Thanksgiving, and even at the omelet station, no bacon for omelets. This was sub-par from my expectations and I won't go back.

Awful! We arrived at 2pm and there was slim picking for brunch. Many foods items were not labeled and sometimes there simply was nothing in the bowl (it hadn’t been refilled). I was in town for the Rock and Roll marathon and was excited to taste Savannah specialties, but there was nothing unique about the menu. Not worth $50! Brunch went until 3pm, but band packed up by 2.30pm.

Celebrated a friends birthday and it was perfect. The waiter was courteous and prompt. He even brought a slice of cake with candle and sang happy birthday that we didn’t request. The food was awesome and definitely worth the amount. We weren’t rushed and enjoyed the water views along with River Street.

I had always wanted to try Savannah’s Jazz Brunch at the Westin and it took me 3 years and my mom coming to visit, in order to finally try it out... I HAD BEEN MISSING OUT!! The food was delicious, the atmosphere was wonderful, and the scenery was beautiful. I also have to give points to the service staff. They were DELIGHTFUL! Super friendly and courteous. Trudy also gave us great advice about things to do around the area. Overall we had a WONDERFUL TIME!! We totally recommend for any ocassion.

Food WAS delicious! Music great too. Last year the price was $40.00 When we got the bill of $49.00 we were shocked as no one told us of an increase in price. $40.00 was more fitting for food and music.

Had high expectations for the Sunday champagne - jazz brunch. It turned out that the food was just average in quality and the ambiance was spoiled due to patrons walking around in gym shorts and flip flops. The lack of a quality meat on the buffet and a 2 glass champagne minimum indicated that the hotel was cutting corners in order to protect their profit margin. At $49 per person, the hotel clearly under delivered.

I had been to this brunch buffet once before in Oct 2016 and it was fabulous. Even for $44.
We loved it so much I really talked it up and made reservations for my daughter's bacholerette weekend. I was VERY disappointed that not only had the price went up to $49 is was HALF the size of buffet then when we were there in October.

I was so embarrassed that I had convinced some of our guests that are on a limited budget that it would be extremely worth it for them to pay the price just to have this happen.

I won't be back. It just wasn't worth $49.

I made reservations ahead of time and my accommodations were granted. There was a variety of food and desserts. The staff was friendly and very attentive. The shrimp and grits are to die for!! The view of the Savannah River was breath taking and relaxing. If you visit Savannah stay at the Westin and have Sunday Jazz Brunch. My boyfriend was very pleased at my choice for brunch. He said everything was worth the money. I will definitely be visiting the Westin and The Jazz Brunch making it one of my favorite places to visit!
