Grand Cafe @ Omni Los Angeles Ratings and Reviews
It wasn’t as good as last year. The service is not as good as well. The gentleman at prime ribs station is the only awesome employee for the day. I don’t mean their service is bad but needs improvement. From the hosts at reception desk to the servers. They need to show more enthusiastic and put more smiles on their face to let us feel welcome. The food are cold (Asian stations). Please understand it is very hard to eat cold noodles and it makes the food taste bad. The drunken noodle are too dry and all stuck together. The sliced fruit cakes been leaving there from the whole time I was there and never refilled or replaced. The sausages are dry as well. The food quality has dropped significantly. Good luck.
We took in-laws out for Sunday Brunch. This was our second time at the Omni Grand Cafe. The food last time was excellent, and it still is. The variety of items prepared is staggering and everything we tried was quite tasty. There is literally something for everyone. For our previous visit we dined outside; this time it was too cold for outdoor dining, but the noise level in the Cafe was quite tolerable. The price puts the Grand Cafe into special occasion territory for us, but we'll definitely go again when the right occasion occurs.
I reserved the back area for my daughter's brunch. It was a very special occasion.. She passed the bar the first time and was sworn in the night before.
The staff was amazing. They were very friendly and even helped me organize the decorations I brought with me. The food was absolutely delish. The atmosphere was very nice. I have not one complaint and I highly recommend this establishment. I will visit again and again.
My son and I have enjoyed the Grand Café Thanksgiving Buffet for several years. This past Thursday, it was as wonderful as ever. The food is varied and delicious, the desserts are out of this world, the service is perfect (with perfectly made cocktails from the full bar). I've always looked to see if something might be better, and it is a great value for such a good Thanksgiving buffet meal.
I attended the Thanksgiving Brunch. The food was very good with a variety of choices. We were there upon their opening so it was not crowded which made a very comfortable environment for my large party of seven. Our waitress was very attentive. We did not have to make any requests for refills or taking finished plates. Management was very helpful and timely in resolving a minor reservation misunderstanding. Overall, my experience with Grand Cafe enjoyable for me and my family.
Everything was great. The place is beautiful, but a bit hard to find with the one way streets and construction. Both options to sit inside or outside, the view/environment/ambiance is beautiful. Service was very attentive and fantastic. The staff was not at all stuck up or rude. Everyone was friendly. Our waiter, Reynaldo was excellent. He was funny and very good about refilling our bottomless Mimosas before the glass was ever empty. I was surprised at how much selection the buffet brunch actually offered. The only reason I gave one star short of a 5 star review is that some of the items were not as hot due to it being left out. Other than that with the 2 hour limit they set for their buffet, never once did the staff rush my group of 13. I would definitely come back with larger and smaller groups.
Even though there was a 700 person convention , the service was Perfect! My friend and I had never been there when it was this crowded but was so happy that they handled everything so well. The food was very tasty and they checked on us often. Very excellent....
Went there for Sunday Brunch, per reservation asked for a table off to the side (lone diner and didn't want to be in the hub of it all) but was seated right in the middle of everything, being in the restaurant industry I shrugged it off until I noticed diners being sat at tables much better suited for myself. Picture me a single diner being sat at a 4-top table right next to buffet while couples were being sat at tiny 2-top tables off to the side. This seems ridicules, especially when considering at the restaurant I work out every server is given an opentable chit detailing preferences and past experiences, obviously this place just doesn't care. During my experience sat across from a single diner twice both brought up complaints about there breakfast preparation (they weren't doing the buffet but ordering off menu). Servers were sweet enough and from what I saw dealt with the complaints of other diners very well, yet this left me on the sideburner. I was well into half an hour from sitting down and getting my first round of bottomless mimosa let alone an ice water. And once I got it was hard to get refills, sorry but coming from MA where bottomless brunches aren't a thing I was expecting to knock back quite a few and celebrate. The food was good though, I suggest filling up on the shrimp and crab claws before entering carb territory. Service was just ok....However....this is for east coast folks....service in LA will only ever just be ok and never exceptional. In conclusion: want endless crab? come here, want a good scene? go somewhere else, want good service? don't visit LA.
Plenty of food especially shellfish, e.g. Shrimp, crab claw, king crab claw which was the focus of a lot of guests. Waffle cooked to order was excellent as was the omelet. Fried chicken was dry, biscuits were not flaky. Biscuit gravy was good. Breakfast meats were excellent especially the blue berry sausage. Did not try the dessert and had fruit only.
Server poured the mimosa and brought us the bill and never saw her in between. Busboys were attentive but left used cutlery on the table .
They were busy.
Extremely disappointing. Service was sub-par - and that's being kind. The "chef" - and that's a stretch - at the omelette station was rude, unfriendly and pretty bad at making omelettes. I think its all you can drink mimosas - but we were never asked if we wanted a re-fill. Awful experience. Will not return. Will not recommend. In fact, I will go out of my way NOT to recommend.
