Perfect breakfast spot before the Eagles parade!
Best Thanksgiving cuisine in a real long time!! Food was incredible!!! A new family tradition.
My family went for Sunday brunch after a fund raising walk on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. We all had the buffet. It was a great value for 23 dollars per person. The eggs , bacon and sausage were all well prepared and delicious. Additionally, there was fresh fruit and very tasty pastries such as croissants and Danish. We were all very pleased and will return.
The service was slow and it was early and not crowded. Food was just okay; kind of disappointed. Had to take our check up because we waited so long to pay
I was expecting a grander buffet from a Sotifel, a brand I have positive associations with. The buffet was, though, a limited, predictable selection, and a lot it was looking tired -- mounds of French toast piled in a covered tray that looked like it had been there a while by the time we arrived; some tomato thing that looked half-uncooked. I bagged the buffet idea and ordered off the menu. We ordered salmon eggs benedict, and it just wasn't very good. The pancakes were pretty good. The coffee, I will say, was very good, but apart from that it was just shabby -- closer to what I'd expect at a cheaper chain hotel than a Sofitel restaurant named Chez Colette. The sparse crowd on a Sunday at 11 -- when it's hard to get in elsewhere -- should be a clue to management that it's time for some improvements.
Took several minutes to be seated let alone acknowledged-- and quite a while until our breakfast was served. Another couple who arrived and was standing in line behind us left after they were seated and didn't receive any service or acknowledgement for 10-15 minutes. Fresh squeezed OJ was a treat and delicious. Enjoyed blueberry preserves, chocolate croissant and raisin cinnamon pastry.
Service was great!
Breakfast was good at the hotel. We got the buffet and loved the various food that was presented in two rows of tables. My favorite was the smoked cold shaved salmon/lox and the fresh fruit. My husband liked the scrambled eggs, sausages, and the assortment of breads.
Excellent food choices, quality and service. Service staff is alert and extremely responsive and helpful. Price is fair and lower than one would expect in a highly regarded hotel. Not our first time nor our last.
The occasion was my sister's birthday. The hostess and the waitress made us feel very special. The food was great, the restaurant was not noisy. I will be back.
Enjoyed the lovely brunch buffet with complimentary champagne. All food was excellent. Especially enjoyed the raw bar and lamb carving station. Also excellent salads and other entrees. Beautiful sweet treats at the end. Will return!
We had an 11:30 reservation on a Saturday and when we walked in we were told they close at 12:00. We asked why they take an 11:30 reservation when they close at 12? When I looked on Opentable again, I saw you could even make a 12:00 reservation. They staff was so rude, we left and had a delightful brunch elsewhere. They obviously did not want to seat us and had somewhere else they needed to be. A DISGRACE!!!!
I would recommend that the wait staff start writing down the orders. By the time toast arrived breakfast was basically finished.
I love Chez Colette. The food is wonderfully French-inspired and the service is impeccable. The croissants are to die for. The coffee is served in a stainless stell press pot at your table. I've dined there many, many times, for business breakfasts as well as for social meals including lunch and dinner and it's always a pleasure. Never a disappointment, from start to finish.
We had Mothers Day brunch . Our reservation was for 12:30 and they were not ready to open. The service was awful. We had to ask for everything, drinks, flatware, to have plates removed after each course and when we asked for something it took a long time to get what we requested. The food was OK but for the price, one would think they would have someone serving us on the buffet line! Over all it was a disappointment and we will never go back!!
We reserved for a special Mother's Day Brunch. They gave us a time for 10:30 a.m. and when we arrived they said it didn't begin until noon, but we could still have breakfast in their other dining room. There was other parties that were disappointed as well. It took a long time to be served anything. We will not be going back.
Staff were great and food was awesome! Can't wait to go back!
Continental service...their staff always goes above and beyond!
Went to Chez Colette for Thanksgiving buffet. They completely exceeded my expectations! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the food was prepared perfectly. They even let us take "leftovers" to enjoy later. Exceptional.
Nice hotel restaurant. Good place for breakfast.
