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.
Went there for Eaater Brunch -- great selection of delectable foods. The staff were very attentive.
Nothing Special...typical hotel food!
We had thanksgiving dinner here, I wouldn't go back or recommend to anyone. Very poor service, food was just fine.
Excellent Thanksgiving buffet menu. My husband and I decided to attend this place since we were not traveling home for Thanksgiving. The turkey was moist and tender, the sides were great as well. Overall, we were pleased with the food.
Restaurant was supposed to be fully booked and they made us wait one hour when we tried to make a reservation... the dining room was empty, maybe 10% occupied. The brunch (buffet) was good but nothing out of this world and the staff rather friendly. Why the attitude?
We went for brunch. Food was excellent! Leave the kids at home though, not a thing for them to eat. Jazz band was nice but much too loud. Hard to have a conversation. We considered "tipping" them not to play since we were meeting people from out of town and were there to catch up. Service was good initially but hard to find a server if you needed something. And when she did appear she would ask one person at our large table if they needed anything and then disappear quickly. But the point is, the food? Outstanding!
Had Mother's Day Brunch. Very impressed. Great service and the food was delicious.
Amazing Croissants and fresh fruits. The food was as close to true Parisian bakery I've ever had in the US. Service was also good. The ambiance was nice and since I had a late brunch it was not noisy at all.
Long waits for waiter Only presented with buffet option for breakfast.
NB, Chez Colette is only open for breakfast and Sunday brunch now. Lunch and dinner are served at Liberte, located in the Sofitel lobby.
My disappointment was in the fact I was looking forward to breakfast/brunch rather than lunch which was not served in the restaurant but in the lobby of the hotel.

I don't think you are doing your job.
You confirmed this reservation for me, but when we showed up for lunch
today we were told that Chez Colette serves only breakfast so we were seated in
the hotel's bar area. They said that this change has been in effect for
some time. We would not have gone to the Sofitel Hotel for lunch if we had
known it meant eating in their bar area and not in the separate dining room
restaurant. It was not what we had in mind. And I don't even know if I got the 100 points!

We went for Christmas dinner so it wasn't the typical dining experience. There was a buffet which was quite special with excellent seafood and lamb. The staff were really superb.
I have always liked Chez Collette. Now the restaurant is seldom open, most meals are in the lounge. The food is good and a great bargain for business lunch.
There was no person to greet any diners.It appeared as though the restaurant was abandoned. I was told I could eat at the bar!
Met here for a business breakfast on a Friday morning. I enjoyed the fresh juices and fruit smoothie. They also have a nice sized menu that offers something for everyone.
I had brunch on Sunday which was really good, but experience of continental breakfast on Saturday was good too....
The brunch selection had something for everyone. The food was delicious.
This was one of the worse restaurant I have been to. Great food but the service was horrible. They were rude and right away when they found out we were in our 20s they judged us and slacked off very poorly. I was very upset with how this dinner turned out to be.
We went New Years Eve. A combo played great jazz, we had a great time. Everyone there is great. Our waiter was great but a little slow.
