Maybe it's because they were closing forever in 1 more day but the food was terrible. I asked the bartender for a peach bellini and she said she didn't know how to make one.

It was terribly expensive for what we got.

Went there because they are closing. Had a good brunch until most of the workers walked out in protest of no severance given to them. Too bad it would have been a nice day. Hard to say the corporation that owns restaurant couldn’t have given something to those who put in many years. Some had worked there 39years. Could’ve been a tiered help even if the employees knew for weeks that they were loosing their jobs. It was sad.

Based on the food, it must've been great in its heyday. But, it's seems they've let the building and the service go, because they're closing soon.

The taste of the food was just ok. Not great. Not bad. The bacon was over cooked. The crab legs and shrimp were the best on the buffet. The omelet was good. It was very crowded. The buffet selection was decent. I wasn’t wowed by the experience but it wasn’t horrible either. The ambiance could use some updating and nothing about the food stood out, so I probably wouldn’t go back. Glad I tried it though.

Was married here 18 years ago so came back w/kids so they can know the venue since they'll be closing its doors. Sadly, understand why, as place has been rundown and no upkeep seems to have been done to maintain it for many many years. Was a bit depressing to see because I still have memories of how it looked long ago. It felt special just walking into the doors back then and now it has that pseudo Shining movie vibe. Will miss the old Hs Lordships.

Visited for the last time as this historic venue is closing after 50 years serving Berkeley foodies. Enjoyed a trip down memory lane with the best food and views in the Bay Area. Sorry to see this place close down, but renovations of this property would cost millions and Berkeley has now seen fit to turn part of the parking lot into a homeless camping shelter. Maybe Berkeley could renovate the entire area and make it a beautiful location for the camping set with a great place to eat as well?? This was a great place to enjoy for so many years. Sorry it is leaving us.

We have been going to HS Lordship for about 30 years and never had a bad experience and always enjoy the food, the scenery and the great service. We are very sad that this great place has to close because the Berkeley city government has become so greedy to believe that a hotel will be better on that location that a restaurant with the statue of HS LORDSHIP. What a shame!

Facility outdated, as expected since they're closing, no reason to remodel or update. Cocktails good, food pretty good, except disappointed at cook of prime rib we both ordered. Ordered a medium rare and medium, got well done and medium. I sent back the well done one for a medium rare, and it came back more cooked than medium we originally got. Waiter was not very gracious about the request, so I didn't send back a second time.

DO NOT go to this restaurant for brunch at its last seating...2:15pm...you are rushed and told the buffet closes at 3pm!!! You pay full expensive price for a time limit...not good. We have been going to the restaurant for numerous years but will never go at a last seating.

Sad to say, I can see why this place is closing. We had to ask for our drinks a few times. The meat was good, but not great. Dessert was frostbitten. You can feel the slope to the floors. Not good. I'm glad we got the early bird prix fixe menu price.

The food was great but the service was sub-standard. The desserts (sundaes for the children) were served melted and runny. The creme brulee was worthwhile but would have been better had it not been runny after a 30 minute wait for the dessert. The meal overall was delicious and a good value. Water was not refilled promptly. Poor service.
