We had just heard of the WA's closing a few days prior at our home in Laguna Beach, CA, and on a whim, tried for and got our reservation! We flew out just to see Thie Historic and beautiful Waldorf Astoria, and to experience the wonderful ambience we had heard so much about. Seeing the Staff in formal wear for their own celebration was very touching, and a genuine feeling of Family amongst them was evident. THANK YOU to all who breathed life into this great place...and for not laughing at me as I swiped the last of the hand towels with the Waldorf stamp, lol! - The Peacock Alley was so full of life, with regulars saying goodbye, and we were welcomed with open arms - food was amazing, hot, and deeeeeelicious!!! Good Luck to all - hope to see you in a few years when the new project is complete.

It is a very special place where we go for a late lunch & chocolate martinis on a regular basis. We are very sad the Waldorf is closing for renovations & hope they reopen very soon. It's the best

A moment in history, last night of operation for Peacock Alley. Service, drinks, food were great to the last moment.

The waitress checking us in was rude. Despite booking in advance the table wasn't set up for 7 and they had to move furniture from other diners tables. We ordered the famous waldorf salad and the walnuts were missing. Overall disappointing and expensive.. definitely got the vibe they were on wind down due to the impending closure. The waiter that served was the saving grace and was very friendly and helpful.

Breakfast of fried eggs and bacon, toast extra, coffee extra - $90. With incredibly slow service. Good thing they are closing.

We went there to say goodbye to the Waldorf. Despite having made resos, we had to wait 20 minutes for the rude maitre d' to attend to us. When he took our name, he stepped away for another 5 minutes and then led us to a table that hadn't been cleaned. The food was OK, but the service left A LOT to be desired. I guess they didn't care since they were closing.

Lots of food and options. Very helpful staff. Sad to see the Waldorf close. Hopefully brunch will be back in a few years

I truly hope the Sunday Brunch will return after the renovation!!!! It was the best brunch buffet I have ever experienced. My only complaint is the Beef Wellington could have been more moist. I've experienced some amazing brunches in around the world but the Peacock Alley Sunday brunch is the best. The female harpist was extraordinary too. My husband and I are accustomed to great musicians entertaining diners in Manhattan restaurants but she was truly fantastic. The staff was top caliber and so was the food. The Sunday Brunch is definitely one of the top Manhattan experiences. Please bring it back!
