Our 1st, but not last, brunch here was a delight! My sisters, D, 90 & E, 86 & I, 74 were at a hotel less than a block away, so we walked. D has very limited mobility, so I pushed her in a wheelchair. Upon arrival, there was no ramp at the 1st hotel entrance we came to. I went inside & a woman (in management) came outside to point the way to the ramp (in the motor lobby), but ended up guiding us all the way to the restaurant. It was a really convoluted journey to get there that involved two elevators, a far trek, & left us wondering how to get back. Steps would have gotten us there faster, but alas, not possible! Having read that dining is on 3 levels, access by steps only, I had requested accessible seating. They accommodated us w/seating on the brunch buffet level. The staff was more than helpful in every way. D is a life-long picky eater, and E & I eat low carb/high fat, grain free & sugar free. We found many delicious food items that met our requirements. We had them remove the champagne & mimosa glasses, as we don't drink alcohol, but told our server to keep the coffee coming! We also splurged & had a glass of high carb orange juice! E & I filled plates for D, & she really enjoyed the meal. Ambiance was comfortable & quiet. Guitar playing was unobtrusive. Food choices were many, varied, delicious, & well-presented. We splurged & had Bananas Foster for dessert-EXCELLENT! We tried some other desserts, but they lacked flavor & freshness(our only critical comment). Our server, Efrain, was wonderful. Coffee cups were kept filled and used plates were removed. Upon request, he brought E & me a piece of gluten free toast. At the end of the meal we asked Efrain to point the way to get back to the motor lobby. He did better than that; he removed his waiter's apron & pushed D's wheelchair all the way back with no elevators and a much shorter route than coming in! He knows his way around! All of his service was outstanding! We highly recommend this Sunday brunch to all.
We’ve been here 3 times and service has always been top notch. Atmosphere and location are great. We’ve always gotten the buffet in the past and have enjoyed the large selection it offers overall (if not each item). Unfortunately, I ventured out and got the creme brûlée French toast off the menu this last time and it was impossibly dense and, while the taste was very good, I just couldn’t eat it.
We had an excellent dinner. We ate outside overlooking the River walk. Our waiter was fantastic. The food was exceptional and prepared just the way we wanted. And dessert and coffee was the perfect way to finish up before our carriage ride. We look forward to our next visit.
Very nice experience and friendly staff...food was tasty and we'll displayed
If you are staying at the hotel, La Mansion, it is convenient and pleasant. I wouldn’t make a special trip there.
The food was good. There wasn’t much variety though. We went for the brunch buffet but it was already over by noon on New Year’s Day . Service was good and the ambiance was also good.
This is the second time we had New Year’s Eve dinner here. The first year several years ago was terrific. Regular menu and the meal was great. This year was a fixed meal and it was very mundane. For the fixed price they charged, I expected better.
Best Sunday brunch!!!!!
We went there for the Sunday Brunch buffet. Our waiter was fabulous, the food was very good and you can't go wrong with bottomless mimosa's.
