We went for the Mother’s Day Brunch. At $110.00 a person (5 of us) I expected a lot better!!! The food was the same as when we go for a regular brunch! Not only that but the desserts were not as good. Rice Krispies and Cupcakes!!! Very disappointed!!! Really a shame we expected so much more not the same and less!!
No way would I recommend this brunch ! I also requested a table closer to the buffet area due to my elderly father not being able to walk far but they said they had nothing closer the tables were taken. You live and Learn an expensive lesson!

Beautiful restaurant with a lovely choice of food at the Sunday brunch buffet. A bit on the expensive side. The price wouldn’t be so bad if at least one alcoholic beverage was included.

We were seated early and the staff was very gracious. There was a tremendous amount of delicious food and healthy options to choose from, which I later negated by stuffing myself with decadent desserts. There is something for everyone even the fussiest eaters. Nice section of eats for kids as well. Great cocktails and wine

i wanted to love this place because the chocolate brunch was delicious and wait staff were pleasant but unfortunately my service with the reception team made for a upset afternoon. the reception staff treated me and my friend like idiots because we made an reservation at the wrong time for the chocolate brunch. after canceling our reservation and apologizing we secluded for a different time when the chocolate brunch was being severs only to be recognized by the same person and to have them roll there eyes at us for 'causing such a fuss'. as a receptionist myself i knew it was odd when she wrote down my full name on her serving pad and we were watched like a hawk throughout as if we were not going to pay.
i will not be going here again for any reason if it can be helped.

My friends and I crossed the chocolate extravaganza off our bucket list this past weekend. The ambiance was superb as was the wait staff. The buffet was extraordinary and lavish. Setting a slow pace was necessary to sample as many items as possible, and each selection was just as good as the last. The attention to detail in all aspects was shown from our superb waitress explaining the theme and layout to the creations presented. There is no doubt we will be attending this event again.

I went with two people for lunch and ordered light. Only drank water. The bill was close to $80 without tip! Really, for lunch in a hotel??? There is nothing special about it and the prices are 2x what they should be. Maybe they need to charge more money because nobody goes there. It was pretty empty during prime-time business lunch hours. There are too many other options in Boston and I would recommend people to STAY AWAY!

Everyone should experience the chocolate bar at least once! We celebrated our daughter's birthday with her fiance. Lee did an awesome job of keeping us supplied with clean plates, water, coffee, and great jokes ... as we wandered with open eyes and mouths through mountains of chocolate on all sides. It was fantastic!!

Dined at Easter Brunch. It was a beautiful setting, very elegant. A quartet played jazz and so it was very nice. The buffet selection was very extensive. I was not able to sample everything.

The prime rib was excellent, but no au jus? The lamb wasn’t as tender and lacked taste. Think average buffet beef roast... it didn’t compare to the prime rib.

The oysters were flavorful, but the crab claws were thawed and had virtually no taste. The sushi was about average for a buffet, with the salmon nigiri being the best. The smoked salmon was also very good. The seared tuna tataki was overdone and tasted previously frozen.

The Waffles were really done well. It came with numerous toppings. There was a crepe service, but i didn’t participate. The blueberry muffins were also great and fresh. There was a chocolate fountain... but again I didn’t part.

The service wasn’t particularly good. The silverware had bits of food that were stuck on a spoon. We never had coffee filled without asking. And plates were slow to be cleared.

I think it would have been ok, but the cost per person was $110, which given the quality of food and the average service we received... I don’t believe it was worth it.

We went to Cafe Fleuri for my girlfriends birthday. It was our first time here and we didn’t know where to start. We looked at the menu and we both agreed to order the lobster mac and cheese. Our waiter came by and explained how everything worked, at that time we also told our waiter that we would like to order food as well. His response was “it’ll ruin your appetite,” however we thought our order was put in. Guess it wasn’t because we waited almost 45 minutes before we realized that we probably weren’t getting the food we ordered. Also a table that was seated after us got their food before we did. We were also seated next so a large party that was having some type of celebration as well. They also added to our unpleasurable experience. We then waited another 10 minutes after we got our check to pay because our waiter didn’t take it from us, even though he walked by about 10 times serving the large party next to us. And the last thing is, when I booked the reservation I had asked if they could come out with a small cake with a candle or something so my girlfriend could blow out. Also did not happen. Aside from that, the chocolates themselves were great and they had a variety of options. It was cool to see all the different chocolates laid out and they had unique desserts as well as classic ones. However, unless you’re 10 or under, you probably couldn’t eat $45 worth of chocolates. It probably would be nice if you’re in the main room, but if you’re in the back corner there is not scenery.

Menu is rather basic but eggs,meat, juice And coffee is $25.

Denny’s has more variety. The coffee place across the street is cheaper for pastries.

No issue with the food or service but my business lunch was less expensive than my breakfast.

Sunday is the day to go. The buffet is more than your typical “free” breakfast at a hotel, but it is not free.

The food is ok but nothing fantastic.

I appreciated the fruit choices ( watermelon, blueberries, pineapple and raspberry) and the blintzes are excellent.
