**Voted an OpenTable Top 100 Best Restaurant in America**

In true Breakers style, even your easygoing breakfast can take place in old-world elegance. An architectural gem, The Circle boasts soaring 30-foot frescoed ceilings and eight oval murals depicting Renaissance landscapes, including the Villa Medici, near Florence and the famous Tivoli Gardens, south of Rome. (Never mind the backdrop of palm trees and ocean through the arched windows.)

Each morning, enjoy The Circle’s elaborate, artfully crafted buffet of hot and cold selections—from fresh fruit and pastries to crepes and omelets made to order. In addition to our extensive buffet, you can always order à la carte from our menu of traditional favorites. And at week’s end, dress up for our spectacular Sunday Brunch, a culinary experience that simply can’t be missed.

We are visiting Circle brunch many years, this year was a bit disappointing- no oysters, the lamb chops are so small and thin

Overall experience fell short of expectations.

Attention to detail was by far lacking.

I’d expect far greater from the Breakers.

The food was amazing as all our previous visits. However this time we've had some issues with our table and then with our second server after being moved.
Our table was wobbly so we were moved to a different table with a different server. I felt the server was somewhat rude from the beginning with her attitude and facial expression. Then my 5 y.o. daughter was bored, as we did not get any crayons as we are used to getting in restaurants and was playing with a salt shaker on her plate, when our server came over and abruptly took it away from my 5 y.o. daughter. My daughter has done this before at other restaurants and it has never bothered any of our servers.
It just seems like our second server just hates working there and is not good at hiding it.

Hello everyone!

I made the reservation, and and let them know about our 19 anniversary, and I ask for a good table, didn’t happen, also our reservation was at 2:0” o’clock and we have to wait for 45 minutes finally we were so upset, so we definitely didn’t have good experience at all.

Beautiful setting
Initial wait for table but served with a selected choice of drink - bar member of staff was rather vague when I asked for the ice to be removed from my drink. Was uncertain how she would do it??
In waiting area for table it gave us a chance to enjoy ambience of another area
Loved the way the dining was separate from food serving area
Found price quite expensive
An atmosphere and dining experience to be experienced.
Good time for table to have been booked at 1:30 but noted there was a 2hr time restriction although did not affect us on the day. Would be harsh if it had especially when paying so much.

This place is certainly one of the best in the world. The only minor issue is that the time of the reservations is not respected . There is regularly a delay and you can see people waiting at the entrance to be seated.
I realize it is difficult for the very nice ladies welcoming you. However this is difficult to understand for such a great place. The management should try to improve this little point and help the welcoming team as it is not their fault for sure.

This was our first time here even though we've lived in the area almost 7 years. We were very impressed with the entire experience from the beginning until the end. We hope to visit again later this year or make it an annual visit.

There's nothing one could think of wanting at a brunch that the Breakers didn't offer, from caviar and lobster to eggs benedict and prime rib. Those who live for dessert can find more options than they ever dreamed of. The champagne flows freely (for mimosas or bellinis) as do the Bloody Mary's. The setting is lovely. I would only suggest going at 1 or later, when the crowd thins out.

Highly underwhelmed - I would much rather spend way less, have much better food, experience and go to the Seafood Bar at the Breakers.

What can you say about one of the most elegant hotels in the world. It's not really expensive when you consider you can eat everything from caviar to cup cakes.
Endless champagne, mimosas, sangria and bloody Mary's. Top shelf service in a room fit for Kings and Queens. Complimentary valet parking and you can digest with a stroll on the beach or walk elegant garden settings in the best weather this earth can create. A must for a special occasion, or just to enjoy what Sunday in Palm Beach is all about. "Life is Grand".

Hands down the best brunch I have ever been to. The service is outstanding, the food delectable, and the venue breathtaking. The seafood buffet is my favorite with its fresh lobster, crab legs, and oysters. Circle Brunch is a must experience.

Great venue for a wonderful brunch. Perfect service, very attentive. The hotel is a sight by itself.

Free flowing Champagne (the real stuff, not sparkling !), great seafood and meats, enticing desserts, nothing to be desired.

A bit pricey, but worth it.

A must on Sunday morning in Southern Florida.

While the Sunday Brunch at the Circle may be the most expensive brunch you ever have, I feel as though it is also the best value! We are seafood lovers and had our fill of stone crab, lobster, shrimp, Alaskan King Crab, caviar and oysters, and then supplemented the seafood with delicious crepes, carved meat, eggs and a phenomenal array of desserts. The quality of food was outstanding and If we had ordered that much a la carte, it would have cost much more. Our server, Olivia, was superb, and kept the mimosas flowing with an generous 80/20 champagne to orange juice ratio, as well as offering tips and recommendations for the food. It was a special occasion meal for us, rather than a regular event, but we will be back the next opportunity we get. Besides, I don’t feel like I will need to eat again for another year or two!

Certainly a wonderful brunch at an elegant location with an atmosphere that would be hard to top. Amazing variety of foods all of a very high quality. Be aware that the price is 2 to 3 times other brunches so you pay quite a premium for the experience. Make reservations early as it routinely sells out.

Sunday brunch at The Breakers is by far the top of the chart. It may be expensive, but you get sushi, stone crabs, lobster, oysters, prime rib, lamb chops and on and on. Desserts too many to name but delicious. Also a breakfast buffet. You will not leave hungry
For a special occasion, it is the place to go.

It is definitely the place to have a great Brunch. It is pricey but the quality of the food and the service makes up for it. The salmon has always been my favorite as it is cooked to perfection. The dessert station is out of this world. Too many delicious items to choose from. The service is very attentive and they brought things to our table which we asked for without getting up. The Harp player has been there for a while and he adds a good touch to the ambience. If you sit on the table overlooking the Atlantic Sea, it is definitely a bonus as it makes it more worth while.

The finest brunch in the USA. No other Hotel or Restaurant is even close. Worth the drive or in my case, the Flight from Ohio. Especially "special" during Stone Crab Claw Season !

This is simply and indulgent treat. The lobster and lamb chops were incredible. The ham.....damn I don't even like ham. Was just delicious.
I travel a lot and hit a lot of very nice spots. The Wynn, Bellagio or any of the other high end brunches in Vegas have nothing on this place. Our server was very good, my champagne glass never got empty in the 2 hours we feasted. Did I mention that we ate no less than 8 of the croissants!!!!
Looking forward to going back.
