    We ate their two mornings in a row as we were staying at the hotel. The first day, the hostess did not seem to care anyone was waiting and when she finally came to the front told us it would be 10 minutes notwithstanding there were many open tables. No big deal though as we did sit in the 10 minutes. The avocado toast was excellent but for $22.00 i would have expected a whole piece of toast; it was served with half. More of a snack than breakfast. My wife had the salmon which was very good. Total for breakfast, with coffee, tax and tip was $75,00. The second day, I made a reservation for breakfast. As we were waiting to be seated, four people got up from their table to leave and said, "Good luck. We have been waiting for 40 minutes and still have not been waited on...". However, we were seated fairly quickly but, to avoid any issues, decided to have the buffet. My only issue from that point forward related to the cost. When asked, the hostess told us the cost of the buffet was $28 "tax and gratuity included". When I got the bill the gratuity line was open. The waiter made sure to point out the gratuity line and looked puzzled when i told him what the hostess had said. Of course, keep in mind this was a buffet so we were getting our own food from the line. I left $5 since he poured us a cup of coffee. Overall, i would liked to have seen more than half a piece of toast and one poached egg on the toast for $22.00. However, notwithstanding the portion size, the avocado toast was excellent. I would recommend staffing issues and hostess responsibilities be addressed. I would probably eat there again if staying in the hotel. I can state i would not seek it out otherwise based upon value and service

    We went for Christmas brunch 2023. We've been to the Fairmont Christmas brunch several times, but this year was disappointing. The menu was EXTREMELY limited and the food was just decent. Omelets are a staple at brunch. However, they didn't offer any omelets on the limited menu (What brunch doesn't have omelet?). The cut of beef they served for the prime rib was subpar. The French toast was good, however. We hadn't been since pre-covid, and I would presume others have been disappointed with Pyramid's Christmas brunch, as the restaurant was nearly empty (they used to have a good crowd). The saving grace was the service. Our servers, Elvira and Edith, were more than friendly and very attentive. Needless to say, we will not be back for Christmas brunch.

    I had driven across town with the impression my reservation meant the actual restaurant would be open since it stated it was however when I arrived only the hotel bar was open and wasn’t offering food. It’s a shame but perhaps updating dining hours would help.

    The food was very good. The atmosphere was nice as the had a soft guitar playing old standards in the background. If it was based on those two things I would be back for sure. However, the service was terrible. It was Mother’s Day Bruch and we felt like we were being rushed out of there the entire time, which we found odd since we didn’t have a particularly late seating time for brunch, and the restaurant’s tables were mostly empty. The server was attentive enough, since there was nobody there, however she did things you don’t expect at a restaurant at that price range, like bring our appetizer at the same time as our soup and salads then bringing our entrees literally 30 seconds after our soups. That’s the sort of thing you may see at a cheap chain restaurant, but not when you’re paying these kind of prices on a special occasion brunch. Then she dropped the check without asking if we wanted dessert, which we did. She was obviously trying to get rid of us, which was rude considering it was a special occasion. Also the table was a mess since she didn’t bother to maintain it throughout the meal. We used valet the car because my Mom is on a cane and and my daughter has a sprained knee. Obviously we expected there to be a charge for valet, but they charged us $24 which is the day rate at the Fairmont, which the restaurant in, so heads up on that,

    There was insufficient staff the two nights we dined there. One girl had to act as server and hostess in restaurant and bar. We witnessed numerous people stand at host podium for awhile and give up and leave. Long wait for food. Need more staff. Limited menu and not upscale.

    Great restaurant. Seems to be understaffed. Our hostess and a server worked so hard as did everyone else. My only real criticism was the price to park. $23 to be there for 90 minutes is too steep.

    It was very early in the evening so the restaurant was empty, I was hoping this meant more prompt service. We ordered a charcuterie board and ten minutes later we added a pizza. Twenty five minutes later the pizza arrived followed 10 minutes later by the charcuterie board...not sure what happened there? The pizza was ok, very simple not very gourmet, the cheese in the board was ok, 3 different varieties, 1 of which was horrible. Service was ok, main waiter was trying the rest kind of took their time. Overall, I would not return to this restaurant.

    Looked forward to Christmas dinner. Sat us in the main circulation path for all arrivals and departures to pass by our table. Asked to be moved. OK. Ordered $15 USD cocktailS--glass was sticky ICKY sticky, and floating lemon bathed my face when sipping. SideCar was dirty looking, unpleasant taste. Had to wash my hands after handling. Waited...waited...finally Lobster Bisque was served, luke warm, brownish color, foul taste. Flavor was very dirty like burned roux from an amateur's attempt at Cajun etouffee--not worthy at all. Waited...waited...waited, hoping to replace with salad, but waiter never came. So, we got up, informed welcoming attendant of our disappointment, and we left. We had an acceptable Christmas meal at Denny's, with much better service. We were overdressed for Denny's, but did not have better options at Christmas at the last moment. Best Christmas option hands down is Fogo de Chao...we will go there for NYE.

    The only thing is that we went on Christmas Day and we were not told that the 20% tip would be included in the price. My husband added another $30 for the tip because he did not know it was included. The Santa Clause could have interacted with the customers in the dining rooms a little more. We ran into him accidentally and got a picture but otherwise we would not have seen him. Food was fantastic, fabulous, and amazing!!

    The food was ok. We shared the red snapper, and it was a touch fishy on the bottom of the fish, and the shrimp dish which was not good at all. The service was good but not to much selection for cocktails. We did end up getting dessert because we figured to end the night with something delicious and it was.

    They appeared to be understaffed for the conference crowd and the food was very slow coming out. However, the servers that were there were extremely nice and as attentive as they could possibly be. Our waiter gave us complimentary extra glasses of wine because the food was taking longer than expected to arrive, which was appreciated.

    We had a very enjoyable evening at the Pyramid Restaurant last Saturday, 10/5/19. The dinner was a dual celebration of our 17th anniversary and my birthday and the reception, the way we were treated, the service and, especially, the food was outstanding. I'll highly recommend this establishment for anyone searching for a memorable evening.

    Long a favorite staple of mine and friends alike. Today’s visit was especially gratifying. We had the opportunity to relax and enjoy one of the best venues in town. Kim and Aida were gracious throughout our visit. This time honored tradition is celebrating 50 years of service to the community. They are very deserving of the host of awards that have been bestowed on the Pyramid since it’s inception. While tastes and dining have changed one thing that remains constant is their unbridled commitment to quality and impeccable service to guests. The staff in the kitchen continues to honor any request. Joe is outstanding along with his colleagues. It’s a stellar experience that deserves continued accolades.
