    The only good food item here is the fried chicken. Everything else is either blend, dry, unflavorful, or a combination of the above. Sure it is good ambiance but don't forget you are under the sun all the time.

    Such a lovely room and the service was wonderful but not a good value in terms of money spent. At $120 per person I was expecting more savory items, too many dessert items for my taste. Won't be returning for the tea. May try again for brunch but not anytime soon. The room is so lovely, it is a shame there aren't more offered options for one to enjoy the space other than brunch and tea service. And I wish the button below had a place to leave a comment. I would recommend for a special occasion, for the beautiful ambiance but not for the quality.

    Extraordinary experience. Tea, Palace Hotel’s proprietary blend, was delicious. It is sold here and I bought some to take home. Food was delicious and there was a lot of it. We enjoyed the glass of Veuve which really elevated the whole experience. Service from Shakir and everybody there was also excellent, quick enough without rushing us at all. In fact, when we were finished we were able to sit and sip our Veuve listening to the harpist play for quite some time. Spendy but so worth it. The food and service make you feel very special.

    The Palace holds so much history. Do yourself a favor and read everything you can about this beautiful place before you arrive. Knowing will enhance your experience. We had a 12 pm tea time. We arrived 15 minutes early. Service was still being set up. We were sat promptly, near the edge facing the service clean up area and bar....not ideal. Our servers were kind and served us professionally. The food was sub par. The sandwiches although beautiful...they lacked flavor. The baked goods were all delicious. Every single one of them, perfect. The tea was delicious. Im happy to have had this special experience, however I do not want to return. At 120.00 dollars, the chef should do better. However, the pastry chef is definitely filled with happiness and thankfully left us all feeling the same. Thank you all for everything you do. ❤️

    4 of us had mother's day brunch at 3pm this past Sunday. Ambiance always excellent; however, the amount we paid per person did not reflect the value we expected. Despite large variety of food, certain items ran out after about an hour into the 2 hour brunch. For example, at 4:10pm the prime rib station was closed due the server stated there will be no more roast coming out. The sushi station was not serving any more nigiri lest than an hour into the brunch. Only the rolls were available. I could see you running out of certain items maybe 15 minutes prior to closing but not about an hour into the brunch. We were there also for your Easter brunch at the same time. There was no problems with certain items running out early

    The brunch buffet served a large variety of food options at the cost of quality. For 250pp it’s very expensive. If you like quantity over quality it could be for you. The crowd and food type is similar to a what you’d get on a cruise ship. The bread was stale, oysters were ok, and sushi selection alright. For 250 you could get a lot more value else where IMHO.
