When you go to a restaurant with your reservation but they are closed it's hard to give a good review.

Went for Mother's Day Brunch, first dining experience here. Food was better than expected, but desserts were not good. Our server was very attentive, but did not speak much, if any, English, so any requests beyond the usual (I asked for just orange juice instead of a mimosa) required him to find a manager to translate. Overall a good experience, but not sure we'll be returning for special occasions.

The ambiance was nice the food was ok. They had it set up across such a large space that you might not have remembered to go back all the way to the front. The desserts were mediocre. If you want to take young children to a nice brunch this is the place. The food was more like family food.

Had Thanksgiving buffet dinner here. The staff had a bit of difficulty keeping up with the supplies of food in the buffet. There were many choices, but fewer choices that kept up with demand may have been a better idea. Never did get to sample the mashed potatoes since the pan was empty even after several trips back . What food was available was very good though. The service also left a bit desired. Empty plates were left on the table until we asked the server to clear it. The server was very friendly, but did not seem to have the training needed to meet the upper height of service the restaurant was striving for.

Good food, great variety and nicely presented specialty stations. Water fountain inside was not working but other than that the service and cleanliness was really good.

The Thanksgiving Brunch Buffet was delicious and very affordable. The service from all of the Staff was fantastic too. A few notables: Mac 'n cheese, stuffing, and gravy were outstanding.

Nice setting for Thanksgiving Brunch. The turkey was very moist and tender. Many side offerings. The Chef was very visible and came to each table a few times and shared secrets as to how he likes preparing various dishes. When I made reservations, I mentioned we would be bringing a bottle of champagne. When we arrived, they had an ice bucket already set up table side. The deserts were plentiful and the Cherries Jubilee was prepared beautifully. Overall, a nice alternative to cooking for Thanksgiving.
