Went for advertised Father's Day Brunch (advertised on Open Table), but they don't actually do a Father's Day Brunch anymore so it was just the regular breakfast at the hotel, which was still very good but just not quite what we expected for our celebration.

I was very disappointed. They advertised "special" brunch for Father's Day, but had the bare minimum. Less than most hotels provide free with room!!! In the past, their special holiday spreads were incredible. The service was horrible as well. It wasn't even crowded and took 20 minutes to get our drinks. By then, we were almost done eating. I don't know what happened to this place, but it's gone downhill big time.

The Mother's Day Brunch was amazing! The servers were incredibly attentive, even though it was a buffet. They were right there before we even realized we needed another beverage! The food was excellent--very good quality and exceptional variety. Our favorite part was the dessert "room". We have been to some very pricey brunch buffets, including the Omni Shoreham in DC, and this beats them all!

The brunch food was very good, though leaned more towards lunch/dinner than breakfast. Waffles in a chafing dish don't hold a candle to fresh-cooked waffles. They were not crisp at all, and thus were not very appetizing. Carved meat was very good a served in good-sized portions. Deserts were well-presented and delicious. Wait staff was very attentive and interacted very well with patrons. All-in-all, a nice experience, although not as good as 2-3 years ago when we last attended Mother's Day brunch.

It was a huge disappointment since IT NO LONGER EXISTS. I spoke to someone at the check-in desk. They said Marriott has contacted you several times over the years to tell you to stop scheduling tables, but you continue to do so. I'm wondering how many other restaurants you take reservations for that no longer exist. I will not be using your services again.

We have frequented the Westfield Marriott brunch on numerous occasions. I was disappointed that the current brunch offerings had limited breakfast options (no waffles, no French toast, or eggs benedict). The food selection was broad, well-prepared but mostly lunch and dinner type items. I had to repeatedly ask for my tea to be replenished, the service was underwhelming given the cost.

What a disaster! We have been coming here for years but this time - so many big things were removed from the menu, several bread based (read cheap) dishes were "presented". Couldn't find a server for refills or to clear out plates, had to do it all ourselves. Yet, the exorbitant.$75 price tags hasn't changed. Even the picture was downgraded to black and white. Please dot waste your money or time......go else where.
We will from now on.

This is a far cry from the vibrant decadent brunch the description of this restaurant talks about.
It is a dull hotel restaurant with hotel guests having a regular hotel breakfast.
We came here to celebrate a birthday event. We would probably have been better off going to IHOP.
That is how lifeless and unexciting the place and the food were.
In good conscience I could never recommend this place for any celebration whatsoever.

Very disappointed! The air conditioning was either not on or broken. The temperature out side was very warm and very HOT INSIDE the restaurant. Food was just so-so, some items were not kept warm in the chaffing dishes and there wasn't enough of some items ( ran out and we're not replaced.

My family has come for 20 years to the x-mas buffet... always excellent food, good service and festive surroundings. I think this year was especially GOOD... the new set up with food in middle and desserts in side room works better... also KEEP the oysters on the half shell and crab on the menu along with the yummy cocktail shrimp ... a great addition !!! We will certainly be there for year # 21 !! Thanks to Westfields for another lovely Christmas buffet.

I have been attending this buffet for Christmas and Mother's Day for more than ten years. This year they decided to change the layout and the menu. There were no waffles and instead decided to make pancakes. The omlette bar was still there and quite nice. I went there first and had an omlette. Then I began looking at the non breakfast selections and found none of the items that I came to have. There was not even one thing that I normally eat. My family tried the items and were disappointed in the taste and quality. Overall an extremely disappointing experience.

The food was delicious. There were many choices, including brunch, appetizers, dinner, sides, and desserts. Champagne and mimosas were included. We've been to this Thanjsgiving buffet several times and will continue coming back.

All of the staff, hosts and servers, were completely warm, helpful and available.

The meal was a joy.

We have been going to Westfields for Easter and Thansgiving for several years and we are never disappointed. Great food. Friendly staff. Easy to get to. Parking is a non-issue. The list goes on. Going back each year has been a no-brainer and we will continue going year after year.

Probably the largest brunch selection you can find. Upscale environment; but, still very child (even toddler) friendly. Table staff is attentive, yet unobtrusive. Excellent Thanksgiving brunch. This is the 4th consecutive year my family has attended the Thanksgiving brunch. Everyone (adults & children) look forward to it.

We went to Westfields Marriott for Mothers Day Brunch and it was fabulous. The best part was the very attentive staff. They were so gracious to us and always kept our beverages filled and plates whisked away when we went to the buffet line. Food was good mixture of breakfast and lunch. They did not rush us either. Choices of savory dishes and salads including very large shrimp were a highlight.

After having heard good things, word of mouth, about the brunch at Westfields, my wife and I decided to go there recently for Sunday brunch. According to the menu on Open Table, we were expecting a large brunch with seafood, cheese, salads, "breakfast selections" and "specialty eggs" as well as the six hot entrees listed on the menu. The menu boasts "Our chef and culinary team design WEEKLY brunch menus incorporating new food concepts, flavors and textures." When we arrived, we found we had been completely misled. There was no large brunch. All that was offered, was a common hotel buffet breakfast (that you will often find for free at small hotels). This large brunch, that the menu suggests is a weekly event, is only offered ON THE SECOND SUNDAY OF EVERY MONTH. This information had to come from the front desk clerk of the hotel. The hotel website is confusing as well, as none of the restaurants on the website are called the "Palm Court." It appears that instead it is called the "Fairfax Dining Room." If the hotel and restaurant wish to properly manage guest expectations, this information should be more clearly conveyed.

As for the room itself, the ambiance was nice, the food was okay - the quality was good, but again, it was nothing particularly special. The service was lackluster. Despite there being no rush, our bill was slapped down on the table before we had finished eating our first plates. And then, when they did take our credit card for payment, they did not return it for fifteen minutes. The hostess had to be summoned to return our card so we could leave.

Overall, a disappointing enough experience that I do not think I will be returning for the second Sunday of a future month. There are plenty of just-as-nice brunch places I know for cheaper that are offered weekly.

The brunch was good - you shouldn't leave hungry. The cold shrimp were good. The mahi mahi fish was fishy - so maybe a little overcook or old. The same with the scallops in the scallop and shrimp pasta. Unfortunately, people took almost all the seafood and left the pasta. The omelet was cooked very nice. The cranberry sauce was really blueberry sauce. The wait staff tried to be unobtrusive, but it did take a while to get the check.

We have been to the Westfields Marriott several times in the past for their outstanding brunches, and after going the first time it immediately became our go-to option for special-occasion meals. The restaurant always has a dazzling variety of food options, from breakfast items such as French toast, bacon, and eggs to a perfectly cooked ribeye and mounds of shrimp. They also have a Belgian waffle station -- I usually avoid Belgian waffles, since they are not well prepared, but the Westfields' are delicious -- and an omellette station. The only problem we have is deciding which foods we want seconds of. The service was also outstanding, with an ample and friendly staff to accommodate your needs. A perfect place to celebrate a special occasion, though they also have the brunch on weekends. Highly recommended.

First time dining at this hotel and we were so pleased! Our family dined at this hotel on Christmas and we all enjoyed the food and the experience. Both food and pastry chef were alerted to my gluten allergy and walked me through the buffet to advise on what foods and desserts I could eat which were plentiful. We would definitely recommend this venue for a future special occasion. Thank you for making our family's Christmas so special! Happy New Year!

We were seated at a table and left to get food at the buffet. When we returned to the table, there were other people seating there! After speaking with the hostesses they sent us to a room which my husband didn't like so we had to change tables for the third time. We were not served our drinks until I had to ask a waitress to help us and bring us something to drink. The waitress that help us was nice though and her service was good. The desserts were terrible. The creme brûlée was completely curdled. For a nice hotel, I'm really surprised they let that dessert out for guests. Also, some desserts that were out contained liquor and they do not indicate that on their food cards. Not good especially for kids. Will definitely NOT be back.
