Overall fair . Food good. The service was poor they seemed overwhelmed not enough servers. Had to get up and pay bill taking forever to get check from servers. When leaving two servers chased us down saying we didn't pay bill. Prime rib was very undercooked . Will be going somewhere else for Sunday brunches.

We enjoyed a very nice breakfast and was able to visit for a while. The service was super, and the food was great.
Found a new place to have a meal

The variety of food has changed in the past year. Where they used to have fresh made waffles has been replaced with packaged sweet Belgian waffles sold at Costco cut in half. Explains why no butter for waffles. Why have syrup?

Omelet station was okay but no breakfast potatos available. Must have some staple with breakfast but none to be found besides bread/toast across the aisle.

Hot food was limited and only beef offered at the meat station.

Nice atmosphere and presentation but not convinced it was worth $42.00

We attended the NYE 2020 party that included a buffet dinner with the NYE party, balloon drop, party favors, champagne, 2 bands and a DJ. Was pleasantly surprised about the quality and taste of the food since we expected "hotel"quality. Prime rib was delicious, ahi and sushi appetizers quite good, crab legs and prawns were tasty. Delicious broccoli and baby carrots, scalloped potatoes. Desserts were pretty good and extensive selection. Well worth it dinner and party for $250 per couple. Will do it again if you want to party into the new year.

Last minute decision and first time to hosting family Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant. The variety of food selections, level of staff and service - and value, exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend and will surely consider for the future.

We were sitting in a very drafty area (by pool and open door to the bar). Apparently the bar's backdoor was open so the cold came right in and blasted us. We were unable to move seats. Unfortunate, but we survived.

Food: The prime rib was cold. It wasn't even room temperature. Is it possible to keep it on a warmer?

The Sunday Brunch food was great and there was a nice selection of standard breakfast foods plus seafood and asian dishes. Staff was attentive and nice and the ambiance was also nice, though a just a bit noisy. The website needs work - should have more photos and should show the price of the brunch.

The food was good with lots of variety and the setting was suitable for a special occasion. I enjoyed the mango & jicama salad and the watermelon with mint. The prime rib, smoked salmon and carrot cake were excellent, but the crab legs were salty. Other items were enjoyable, but not outstanding. The price is too high to go again with our family.

Went here for Father’s Day Brunch. Although we arrived 20 minutes early, they were able to seat us. They were very efficient with their long long list of reservations.

I would say service was very good, considering the amount of customers. We had to ask for things, wait for things; but it was Father’s Day - busy.

Food was delicious. With all you can eat, you have to choose what you like. I especially enjoyed the omelet station, bacon (of course), seafood paella, and Thai spareribs. Desserts were wonderful.

Thank you Cafe Florian for making this a fun Father’s Day.

We went there for Easter and as usual the food was good, our waiter was very attentive and kept the mimosas coming! My 2 year old grandson loved the Easter bunny! I also love that you have professional photographers to take pics if we like... which we do to remember the occasion.

The place looked nice. Serving staff was really nice, professional and quick.
Unfortunately, we had to leave right after drinks arrived because cleaning staff started vacuuming and cleaning around us. It got so dusty and we had to shout over the noise level.
Our drinks (coffee) were comped which was very kind of them. May visit another time.

Was there for lunch so not many crowd, I was one of the few tables occupied. Atmosphere and ambience was excellent but food was not up to standard. Pork pot stick was soaked in oil and sauce, and clam chowder only has very small bits of clam. Only saving grace is waiter was very attentive. Will I go again, maybe not.

Wonderful Holiday Brunch with exceptional food selections for our entire family including vegetarians, gluten-free adherents, and nut allergy members. So many outstanding items to choose from on the very large buffet including hot and cold items, items made to order, outstanding selection of desserts all while the champagne flowed and juices and sodas included for the children. We can't wait to go back again.
