This was my second time eating at the M Street Cafe. I made reservations here during Restaurant Week. I like the atmosphere and you can engage in a conversation without raising your voice. The service was excellent and my Seared Crab Cake salad was very good. The Molten Brownie that was included was too rich for me and not something I would order again.

We had great, friendly service and some delicious omelettes. I was particularly fond of the apple and brie omelette. Kept the coffee full.

One of my favorite breakfast Buffets for the quality of the food. Today the desert selection was only OK and terms of taste and we needed to ask for bagels to go with the cream cheese and lox that were sent out. Just know that orange juice or any beverage does not come with your meal. I still like it but it is not a 10

We were celebrating my friends 78th birthday. She felt pampered by the fabulous wait staff and so enjoyed the little extras. We all loved the food and the general ambiance. Thank for making this special day extra special.

Overall a positive experience. Struggled with our server who seemed to be working on quantity of tables she could turn over versus quality of service. She funished our sentences when ordering, rushed us through the meal after bringing incorrect items. Frustrated that a meal came with 2 large pieces of toast. When gluten free toast was substitited, it was ridiculously small, unbuttered and uncharged $2.95. The food was very good, even if it was not what we wanted.

Primary issue was there should have been one more server for the New Year Day brunch. The waiting time for the prime rib was running very slow. We were a group of ten but could not get seating together even with us setting up the reservations back in September.

Was looking for a brunch location before a matinee at the Ordway. Found their brunch menu online, and the buffet option offered something for everyone in my group, including a picky teenager. We loved it. The food and service were excellent, and we were able to carry on a conversation because the sound level was conducive. We will definitely go there again. The tomato bisque was amazing, and the cold buffet was beautiful and delicious. Even the desserts were good, and I am not often impressed by restaurant desserts.

We have been attendng this brunch for several years and although good for the most part, it’s the same menu every time. Suggestions are to start serving organic food, more gluten free options without charging the customer higher rates for gluten-free bread and turkey sausage, which is ridiculous, also serving a general beverage with the meal complementary. For my husband and I that are gluten-free and don’t eat red meat, this is very expensive. We get a better breakfast at the Downtowner on Seventh Street for a fraction of the price.

The buffet menu and offerings were disappointing. I would recommend that before ordering it that people check to see what is on offer.
The menu items are much better, according to one of my fellow diners.
The mimosa was sub-par.

We went for Christmas Brunch. The setting was very festive. The 22 stations were amazing. However, the food was a bit uneven. The roast beef was very tough. On the other hand, the cream of onion bisque was delicious, as were the waffles with apple and currant sauce and whipped cream, the confit of duck benedict, and the amazing raft of deserts. For 30 dollars a person, it was very reasonable and a very easy Christmas dinner.

We live in Milwaukee, WI and have attended your Christmas brunch for the last three years. The food is always exceptional though I !was a little disappointed with the initial service. We arrived at 10:30 (party of four) for our 11:00 reservation. I understand that our early arrival would not translate into early seating, but when other 11:00 reservations started arriving at 10:50 and were seated before us, I was somewhat surprised. Other than that, everything else was perfect

Minute we walked in we were greeted by Todd. He was so friendly and even talked a bit with us after seating us. Rebecca knows we drink Diet Coke and brings it right when we are seated. We appreciate the special attention given. The sideboard was delicious. I usually order the Turkey Burger (favorite menu) but was happy to try something different. Thanks. Merry Christmas.

This was our second time going to the Thanksgiving brunch. Seemed like more people and longer line for the main food. The food wasn't hot and poor options for people that don't eat meat but eat fish. The salmon was good but was cooked in bacon, so she ate the shrimp from the salad bar. It would have been nice to see some different desserts. The service wasn't too good but I left 20%. I think I will cook next year.

I love the St Paul Hotel. The food and service experience is always first rate. I just think M ST could be updated to look less like a hotel lower level. Primarily I think if the lighting were enhanched to warm up the room that would be a big plus.
