Went there for Mother’s Day brunch, and really though the food would be fresh. The salads and seafood cups had been sitting for quite some time and were just about the opposite of fresh.
The service was below average. We had to remind staff to pickup the plates, and nobody told us where to go for brunch or if we wanted any coffee.
Lastly, we were charged for over 21 meal when we did not drink.
I’ve tried to get a ahold of the food and beverage manager, but she won’t return my call.
* Beware of charges*

We enjoyed the Mother's Day brunch at the beautiful Estancia Hotel and Spa. The buffet offered was amazing! Omelet station, pancake station (which was a hit with the kids!), pasta, frittatas, several different choices of breakfast meats, potatoes, prime rib, ribs, salads, charcuterie, pastries, desserts and the fresh seafood was to die for! The grounds and the ambience was wonderful. Cannot wait to try the food during a non-holiday visit. Thank you!

We had a lovely brunch for Mother’s Day and the touch to pick out your table flowers was so cool! I think there were too few servers as we had to wait for clearing every time, but overall it was very nice.

We went for Mother’s Day brunch and the food was great. I just wish there were a better variety of desserts. Our server was very attentive and first but the last half hour forgot all about us. I had to search someone out twice. It was a gorgeous Mother’s Day setup, outside and flowers for mom.

The buffet was expensive for the choices that were available

Such a beautiful garden setting, fabulous Easter brunch. Just booked a stay at the Estancia in June for daughter’s birthday, we hope to enjoy this restaurant many more times!

DO NOT make a reservation for this restaurant on here, the restaurant does not take reservations. We had a girls day planned and I made reservations, however when we got there, the hostess informed us they do not take reservations. We were able to get food to go, but it was not the same experience and the food was not very good.

There were literally 7 items on the menu. The strawberry salad was the size of a side salad, the chicken was tough and very uninspired. Will not be coming back.

The service was great but the food had clearly been hanging out under a heat lamp for a while. We also had a table outside in the dark very close to a sulfur spout. We had a young son and folks were great about it but when his fries never showed up and our heat lamp food arrived first things got tricky. We chalked it up to folks are doing the best they can during a pandemic thanksgiving meal.
