Very poor selection... the only items that were somewhat flavorful was the prime rib and chilled shrimp. Overpriced salad bar... more salad options than entreé and sides. Very disappointed... $180 for 2 adults and 2 child...laughable to think anyone thought the food served was on par with the price point. Mother's Day Brunch fail.
We went to the Cast Iron at the Omni Fort Worth for the Mother's Day Brunch. It was very disappointing. It was not at the Cast Iron but actually within Bob's Chop House-no signage, no nothing to tell us where to go. We received an email stressing the fact that we had to be on time or they would give our table away - we were on time but had to wait about 20-minutes. Finally got a table, I was holding my 1-year grandson and trying to get him situated, a 'manager' tried to hand me a glass of water and was perturbed that I couldn't take because my hands were full. The floor beneath's my Wife's chair was slippery as somebody spilled something - took three requests to have it wiped and dried up. Luckily she didn't slip. Took multiple requests to get a high chair. On the plus side the food was excellent! When it came time for the bill, took a long time to get the bill - the bill was wrong as it should have been 4 adults @ $65, 1 child @ $40 and the two little ones for free (2 1/2 years old and 1 year old). We were charged for 2 children @ $40 - I challenged the bill and it was 'corrected' however I never saw the breakdown just a credit card slip for $402. Luckily I noticed the 21% surcharge on the first bill. Still don't understand how the bill came to $402 - 4 adults $260 + 1 Child $40 + Sales tax $24.75 + gratuity $68.20 = $392.95. I guess the 1 glass of Dr. Pepper and the 2 kids orange juices were not included in the brunch - @ $65 you couldn't throw in a pop. Very disappointing. When I went to get my parking comped apparently the Omni does not have a relationship with the garage right across the street - cost me $18 to get the car out of the garage. On the overall a very disappointing experience and I'm not sure we would go back to the Cast Iron Grill. Have actually been previously on a weekend get away and thoroughly enjoyed both restaurants. Would like to hear back from the Omni but given our experience there customer satisfaction probably not a big factor. Peter U
The buffet was very impressive! It was expensive but worth it. The prime rib, shrimp, crab and smoked meats and cheeses were exceptional. So many choices and all so good! Thanks for a great Mother’s Day celebration.
Local Greens salad + shrimp was delicious! I’d come back just for that, but the wait staff was also very nice and knowledgeable of the menu and wine selections. Enjoyable!
The dinner menu is a bit limited, but there should be something for everyone. The food was excellent, and speciality drinks memorable.
Very nice and efficient breakfast.... would like to see lodge brand American made cast iron cookware. The made to order omelette was very good. The buffet had a variety of activities.
The restaurant was not very busy but the food and service was good. Loved the tater tot ‘kegs.’
My business partner and I truly enjoyed every single meal we had at the Cast Iron. The breakfast buffet was unbelievable, and the dinner menu is superb! The restaurant staff was warm, friendly, and sincere, which made the dining experience at Cast Iron even better! Thank you all for a great experience.
we made reservations but when we came on time- they had reserved the entire restaurant for a private party- made a a nice service recovery by providing us with a couple of cocktails and an appetizer at the Whiskey and Rye Bar in the lobby
We went for valentines and I guess I missed the memo about a preset menu. We were not able to order from the full menu so that was a bummer but the food was good. I would try it again.
The restaurant was understaffed on a Saturday night. Food was good but overpriced and some vegetables were undercooked.
My wife and I went for Thanksgiving dinner, we have done several holidays here in years prior. I specified my food allergies (nuts) on my reservation but still reiterated to the waiter, which he did a mediocre job at following through on. I enjoyed my local craft beer they had on draft, my wife had a stale Rose, the bottle had obviously been opened days previously.
First course was good, my wife had the apple chestnut soup, they did withhold the nuts from my salad as I had requested. Main course was decent for my wife who had the braised short rib, since it was Thanksgiving I went with the turkey, it was served room temperature, it was cooked properly and was moist but it had no flavor at all, no gravy or anything else to top it with, the small portion of stuffing wrapped with sausage was okay and 3 asparagus spears and tablespoon of cranberry sauce were decent. I took the turkey home to put gravy on. My dessert as I specified earlier had to be sent back due to allergens; my wife had the apple cobbler in a cold “hot” skillet. I pointed this out before he brought me the same out as a replacement; I got a warm skillet. I can honestly say I would have been just as happy with Boston Market thanksgiving dinner for a fraction of the price. We are not ones to complain much especially when at the place, not looking for handouts. I am sorry I talked my wife out of going to Eddie V’s for Thanksgiving dinner, I know the service and standards there are much better. I can not see myself going here for a meal in the future, especially not for the price point.
Ordered mimosa and the glass had lipstick. Reordered. Second glass also had lipstick. Very gross! The tab already came with 20% tip which I was not told upfront. The service was not worth 20% and customer should be the one to decide after the mean and not the restaurant/hotel even tho it was Thanksgiving.
I pretty much had the restaurant to myself with an early dinner. The waiter was great , when I asked where I could go to get a bottled water for my room he brought me 2 bottles.
We were seated immediately and water refilled several times.
No one came to the table for over 20 minutes
Menu was limited but the food was good. Service was fantastic. The staff very friendly and attentive but not overbearing.
The brunch had very limited options and was incredibly overpriced! Wouldn't recommend.
The Mother's Day buffet was incredibly overpriced beyond the value provided. Also, when you consider the age of many of the honorees (including many with walkers and some in wheelchairs), having a 2 piece band playing at levels that made conversation difficult was a poorly executed bad idea. How they ran out of roses by the 1p seating - knowing how many groups they would have, is inexplicable. Complimentary mimosas was a nice touch but couldn't make you forget about the other shortcomings.
It's off my list for special events.
The food was good. I knew it was a busy weekend, so I made reservations for early in the evening to avoid the crowd. What happened was as soon as we arrived at 5:30 we were told repeatedly that we should take the buffet because the kitchen is behind.. and it was only 5:30. Every person from the hostess to our weighted and even the water guy made us feel like we had better take the buffet and if we chose differently it was going to be a terrible inconvenience to the all.
The food on the buffet was good, the decor nice and noise level good. Just terrible service.
Great food. Will be back for next business meeting.
My meal was poor quality --when I sent part of it back, the replacement never came and no discount or compensation was offered. MY husband WAS happy with his meal (salmon).
did not think the menu was efficient . the food was not the quality I would expect for the price . Only having 4 entrees on the menu does not give a variety when you have a group of people
Excellent lunch buffet! Quick and convenient. Able to hold meeting discussions during lunch.
This a restaurant in a beautiful hotel. That said, this is the coffee shop. The food was great, but the ambience was of a very nice coffee shop. The server was very pleasant, but didn't know the first thing about selecting, tasting or serving wine. It was a mistake to have selected this restaurant simply on the food rating on Open Table. The food was good. The evening not so much.
My wife and I each had the 2017 Valentine's Day prix fixe. We tasted six different items from the kitchen as we each ordered different things and tasted each other's food. Each item was fantastic! That seasonal menu had original takes on regional ingredients/recipes while maintaining a good balance of classic and creative.
The current regular menu looks more low key compared to the Valentine's, and I haven't tried that menu.
You have got to try the quail appetizer and then the pies for dinner, we got the venison and brisket. The for dessert their creme brulee is amazing!
This was unfortunately an awful experience. I made a 12:15 lunch reservation for my wife's birthday. We ordered our meal at the same time that we ordered our drinks. It took 45 minutes for our salad to arrive and we only had someone check on us for drink refills once in that time. At around 1:15 the waiter came to our table and told us that we still had approximately 15 minutes before our food would arrive and asked if we would like to change our order to soup as he could get that to us quickly. At this point we asked for the bill so we could square up for our salad and a manager. The manager was very apologetic and did not charge us for our salad and drinks which we did appreciate. Unfortunately, the damage was done. My wife's lunch hour was long over and her birthday lunch was a bust.
The waitstaff and manager were very attentive, our meal was great!
Very affordable prices and great atmosphere! The restaurant serves your entrees on a cast iron referring to their name. I dined at the restaurant for a business meal while in Fort Worth. Cast Iron at the Omni Fort Worth easily applied the tax exempt certificate to the meal.
From start to finish, everything was fantastic! The holiday menu was really nice. The food was outstanding, and the service was attentive without being overbearing. We've already discussed going back for other holidays or "dates". We've already recommended to other friends.
When we placed the reservation for Christmas Day, we didn't know it was a Prix Fixe Menu and very expensive at that. The steaks were terrible. Cheap cuts of meat that were very chewy. The vegetables were good, but not for the amount of money it cost.
This was our first year to have Christmas brunch at the Omni. We loved the atmosphere with the live music and beautiful decorations. The best part was the food which was amazing. Everything we ate was delicious. We did feel a little rushed by our server; however, once we told her that we just wanted to relax and enjoy our drinks and dessert she eased up and told us that she was not rushing us and to enjoy ourselves. Overall a great experience and we will definitely be dining here again and making the Christmas brunch an annual tradition.
The staff were awesome about getting my nieces pancakes and scrambled eggs at dinner. They were also great about letting me bring in a bottle of wine I had been saving and it charging a cork fee for Christmas!
Really enjoyed this Sunday Brunch for my best friend's birthday. The service - from the complimentary valet service to the food was wonderful. Especially enjoyed the iced shrimp and crab claws and the pickled veges. The buffet offers made-to-order omelets, breakfast specialities, salads, hot lunch items, and bellinis. Price was reasonable for the fair offered.
Business lunch and it was just ok. Would go back again even though it was just ok
The menu looked so good! The starter bread not so great. But the quail appetizer wasn't as yummy as I expected after having that dish other places. The steak was extremely thin and overcooked. The green beans weren't as good as expected. The wine was delicious though. And the service was wonderful. Just wouldn't go back here for dinner.
Best brunch I have ever had- and I've been to many lovely brunches. GREAT service, delicious food (you must try the biscuits) and a wonderful variety. Went for a family Sunday brunch and will definitely go again and recommend to friends!
My family and I come here often for Sunday Brunch. Thank you for always providing exceptional service and food. We have 2 young children and we are always greeted and served promptly.
Excellent food variety and quality too. Keep it up! One of the best brunches in the area.
It was a wonderful Father's Day brunch! Staff was friendly and food was plentiful & delicious! Thank you!
