We went for Mother's Day brunch. They had an excellent variety of foods. Everything was hot and fresh. Beautiful displays and food presentation. Good ambiance!

This is inside a hotel that was once the Fairmont, but is now Duke. We needed a last-minute reservation for 5 people for a breakfast, and to that end, we were satisfied. However, the seats, table, and carpet are all indicative of a heavy, outdated, hotel-conference decor, and the lighting lends a cheapened ambience to the meal. However, the breakfast/brunch menu was surprisingly good. The Honeybee biscuit stack with a granola parfait on the side was presented well and each element deliciously made. The hashbrowns are crispy brown on top and tasty in the middle. The orange juice tasted freshly squeezed and everyone liked their order.

I took my dad here for brunch at 11am on Sunday. We shared the avocado Frittata with the basil hollandaise sauce on the side and the eggs Benedict. Both were wonderful. My favorite was the eggs Benedict. I brought my service dog with me and they got us a table quickly.

Slow service, slow hostess who doubles as the busboy. The most dismal breakfast buffet I've ever been to. Definitely not worth $80, even with bottomless mimosas. The food was not refreshed, and if one got replenished, another food item went missing. For a high class hotel, this was just sub par food that you could get at Costco.

A breakfast at Dennys is probably better, and cheaper. Skip the buffet and order off the menu, which is a bit pricey as well. The only saving grace is you get 4 hours of free valet with validation.

I had a delicious sandwich and it was presented beautiful. But the focus on presentation made it a little challenging to eat because the avocado and tomato slices kept falling out of the sides. As this was a business lunch, it made it difficult to eat the sandwich and maintain a professional conversation. However, the sandwich was so tasty I kept eating it anyway.

Sounded like a great restaurant on open table, but this is typical hotel fare in what looks like a repurposed hotel ballroom. Food was pedestrian and waiters were hard to flag down (ours "went on break" during our meal, said another waiter would take over, and then came back a half hour later). Not terrible, but nothing to write home about.
