    My reservation said the Mediterranean room, but we were seated on the terrace. That was fine because the views were spectacular, but would have been nice to know that so I wasn't waiting there expecting service. Paid valet parking at the front desk and thought they had my car pulled in front. They did not instruct me to go to the valet stand to have them go get my car. I waited for a while until a girl also waiting told me she gave her ticket to the valet.

    We had multiple servers and for the most part they were good, the first one we had on the patio was somewhat rude and as then at one point became very rude with her answers, after I commented wow she’s savvy, she never returned to the table and we had a very nice guy that finished off the service.

    So surprised for the affordable breakfast at a high scale hotel! It was the views off the terrace that we were after, and we were not disappointed! Come here early (before 9 a.m.) so you can secure a free parking spot in the Prospect Ave. area. I had the eggs, bacon, and roasted potatoes meal, and it was very filling. Had the regular coffee which was constantly filled by reliable, courteous servers. I loved the décor of the hotel which exuded laid back, but elegant SoCal summer ambiance. I would love to come back to try the dinner or happy hour!

    Ambiance great, so disappointed with the food; I ordered the beet salad before and this time was so bad, the carrots where unclean, half the amount of beets and the greens were assorted on a very unappetizing way. The crab cake sandwich was ok, but my virgin Bloody Mary was more like a lemonade The service was excellent. I can’t recommend.

    Again, great patio & breakfast foods, BUT reservation not upheld, waited 20 minutes for a table, no server came until we flagged someone, chaotic until then. Plenty of staff, just weak leadership & coordination…like most hotels. Great food & view however.

    Four of us went for brunch on my birthday, mostly for the gorgeous view but partially for the KEY LIME BREAKFAST PARFAIT, one of the best brunch items I ever had. Unfortunately, that is no longer on the menu (there’s a less appealing version with vanilla yogurt now). So, two of us had the bagel and lox, which were fine, one had classic Eggs Benedict, which were very good, and one had the steak and eggs which was not good. The “medium-rare” was tough and dry ( a shell steak?) and the roasted potatoes were mushy and flavorless. While we all understand that service is not back to normal yet, anywhere, we do expect it to be prompt and attentive at the La Valencia, which it wasn’t. Oh- and one more thing- when seated next to a view window, one hopes to be able to see through that window. Our was filthy, which the hostess didn’t seem to notice. It’s a shame, because the view is stunning.

    I believed I was going to have an early dinner, but it was my mistake. And it was not at the Mediterranean room, but the service and the four choices of food were so good, ( we, my girlfriend and I) had all of them and that made me forget my disappointment. I do wish that you bring back those lobster rolls you used to prepare , they were to die for. You are still my fave!

    Stay away. I chose to celebrate my daughter's birthday in La Valencia because of great past experience with their Sunday buffet (years ago). This time was a total disappointment. Despite making a reservation with OpenTable, we had to wait 30 minutes. After finally sitting, - they took 40 minutes to bring the food. -they brought the wrong items: 1)Raw stake despite it was ordered medium/well done. 20 minutes to bring it back 2)Ordered eggs overeasy and brought them scrambled. Rather than bringing a new order, it took them 20+ minutes to bring 2 cold eggs in a side dish. -lobster eggs benedict where cold and awful, felt like that had been sitting around for 1 hour -mimosas at $13, I thought it was excessive In summary, huge disappointment -awful service -poor quality food. I am not exaggerating when I say that Dennys serves a much better breakfast. -absolutely overpriced: paid $350 for something that would have costed me less thasn 1/2 at Dennys with far better quality I give it 2 stars because the valet parking was great and the place is beautiful. Other than that, never again

    La Valencia was absolutely incredible, the food, the view, the wine and the service were all exemplary. My only irritation was that it was super cold and we were unable to sit in the Mediterranean room - the only tables were outside. They provided blankets and heaters but it was still super chilly, it would have been great to have been told when we booked. All in all, a wonderful experience and our server was amazing.
