Brunch at @Sustenio
Service: the service was amazing, our server Trey P was busy but he kept up with all of the tables and was very attentive. Checked on is several times. The other servers cleared plates, the hostess was nice. I spoke to several people in the buffet area, one checked to see if a dish had nuts in it for me. One of the chefs came out to speak to me about the dish. They also went to the back to get desserts for my daughter who was with me. The dessert station had several offerings with nuts, and the serving tongs were being used for all of the desserts, so the very nice chef/kitchen staff made her a plate of nut free items from the back. Same items that were out just not served with the same tongs. I can't thank them enough, so nice!
The food. We tried almost everything. Except they ran out of creme brulee sadly, that is our favorite.
-Prime rib was tender, juicy, very good.
-Poached egg with pulled pork and sweet potato hash with chipotle hollandaise sauce. This was so very good! Not spicy, but very flavorful. The egg was cooked more than soft poached but that's just a result of having them in a warming tray.
-Chicken Fried Quail with poblano cheese grits, rosemary-raspberry marmalade. I could have eaten a whole bowl of those grits, it was hard to get grits because there was just a little in a pile with the quail on top. We liked the quail, but the grits were my favorite part of this dish.
-Beef Bourguigon with house made spaetzle, good and flavorful beef. I'm picky about spaetzle because I make it at home. I like mine a little eggy, but these were good.
-Smoked salmon, oysters, shrimp were good, fresh tasting. Oysters were plump and not dried out.
-Cheeses and Charcuterie had several offerings, my daughter didn't have any because there was nuts throughout the display. What I had was good.
-we had so much more my full review is on Instagram #peasblog

Went for brunch. Buffet food was excellent. We had a late reservation and they ran out of Prime Beef unfortunately. Enjoyed the mimosas. Good selection of both breakfast and lunch items. Boiled shrimp and oysters on the half shell were available, as well as a great salad bar selection.

I took my friend here for a Birthday Brunch! The food was top notch. We were welcomed at the door and made to feel comfortable and special throughout our experience. I’ll definitely be going back. I know my daughter and son-in-law will enjoy it just as much as I did!! Good job Sustinio!

Sunday Brunch was fabulous. We arrived at 10 am and were one of the first to fill our plates with three different fruit bowls, huge cocktail shrimp, pastries, sausage, prime rib and made to order eggs. So much more as well and we love Eilan Hotel. This will be a standard plan when company comes to visit. Just Fabulous!

I didn't realize that Sustenio doesn't offer a "weekend brunch," it offers a "Sunday brunch." My mistake, with erroneous expectations for Saturday morning. However they do have a "Saturday breakfast buffet." It is challenging to rate the Saturday breakfast buffet: the food is of the highest quality and best taste, but the selection is limited. If you don't like scrambled eggs with bacon bits, you're not having eggs that morning. No yogurt. No granola or cold cereal. It's a good breakfast at a great price, but it's better to come on a Sunday (and you'll need a reservation) for a more expensive but awesome meal.

Food and table service were great. Bartender was very poor. He disappeared a few times while I was trying to order and there were 3-4 others at the bar and no one else in the restaurant/bar. He also up-charged for ice and didn’t disclose upon ordering. He also had a off-putting attitude. When he was questioned about the additional charges he couldn’t provide a understandable answer. No wonder only 4 people were in the bar. I remember going to Sustenio before and it was packed.

My girlfriend and I went out to have breakfast with our friends and used the app to reserve our spot ahead of time, but when we got there it was fairly empty with only a few other families sitting down next to us. We all had the buffet and were treated with an extensive selection of food that went from pancakes with bacon all the way to shrimp and marinated chicken with mashed potatoes. The food was top notch and we all enjoyed how despite there was a large selection, it was also great quality. We all ordered the mimosas as well, which we were surprised to see that they were bottomless for a decent price ($9.00), with our waiter always coming by and refilling then for us. We were very satisfied with the quality of the food and drinks, I would recommend this restaurant for any families or friend groups looking to get together and have great time with some good food.

A very beautiful facility, especially for a nice romantic evening with your significant other. The atmosphere was very classy and relaxing at the same time. The food was not as up to par as I would expect from such an elegant place? I had the fish and it was adequate but not as flavorful as I was expecting? My honey had the filet and I felt I could have cooked a my more flavorful steak at home. The prices were reasonable but I couldn’t help but feel that I would have been willing to pay a little more to get a better quality meal. I will say that we had two bottles of some great Texas wine and the charcuterie board was fantastic. My honey and I agree that we will definitely be back for drinks and appetizers in the future!

Good happy hour value but such inattentive service that we were only able to order one round. Restaurant was not very busy either. There was nobody at the hostess stand when we arrived. Couldn’t even flag a server down so that we could pay and go elsewhere so we had to leave cash on the table.

Though there were only 3 tables with people seated, it took several minutes for us to get water and the drink menu. There were 2 people stopping by the table, so there was confusion about who took drink and food orders. Because a server did not come help us when we first sat down, one of the managers came out, and she had a cast around a broken arm. The food was dry (pork and chicken) and the food allergens were not labeled on the menu even though the online version did.

I reserved a table and it was not ready. I was told by the hostess that it would take another 15-20 minutes(???). That never happened to me before. And the restaurant was empty!
We were told that the mimosa was part of the breakfast, but of course they charged for them.
Not good beginning, but I was hoping that the food would impress.
I felt so bad to take my family there. It was super expensive, and food was nothing special.
I thought about going to sustento at some point for dinner. But definitely we will look for another place.
Not coming back!

Excellent restaurant for Sunday brunch. We've eaten there twice now, one for Easter and just today. Each time was fantastic. They probably could have just a tad more options for the kids, but that's being really picky. For the price, it's fantastic! What great service and food, not to mention that it's very nice inside. Highly recommended.

We actually had a great experience a few years ago as we celebrated an anniversary, so on our 30th anniversary we had family in town and decided to try again. Made reservation and noted anniversary celebration. Arrived at restaurant with no hostess or acknowledgement for quite awhile until we started poking our head around looking for someone. Finally a hurried wait staff or kitchen help came to see what we needed. Told him we had a reservation which he seemed to have a hard time finding and seated us. Waitress says she will be with us shortly and takes our drink order for a couple of glasses of wine and an appetizer, but will bring a wine list for the rest of the dinner party. After a good while another waitress shows up and says she is taking over because waitress #1 had a big party. No problem, maybe we will finally get our drinks. She assures us drinks are coming many times but to make a long story short it was 40 minutes to get a glass of wine! In the meantime, first waitress is casually waiting on other tables around us and serving them their second glass of wine. She could have at least served the wine before she dropped us , but still why so long to pour a glass, even with the 2nd waitress. By the way, 2nd waitress very sweet but the ball was dropped somewhere. Not sure what happened. We thought about leaving but already ordered a bottle and appetizer. We stayed to make the best of it, and the good part was the steak and salmon. Kudos to the chef on that. But salad was inedible as it was drowned in dressing and fried green tomatoes disappointed . No manager seemed to be on site. Sorry to say there are too many other restaurants that actually want our business. We didn't feel like that on our special occasion.

Have been here several times before for brunch and I was happy to see that they removed the automatic service charge from the bill. However, I noticed that the chefs at both the omelette and carving stations had tips jars out which I thought was a little tacky for a restaurant of this caliber. Also, the server brought us our bill within 20 minutes of us sitting which made us feel rushed.

All is all food is excellent and the reasonable price for the brunch will keep us returning.

We had not been to Sustenio in awhile, but the quality has decreased. The ceviche was tasteless and ultimately we left about half of it because it was like eating flavorless gelatin. The waitress was very nice and attentive, but not very knowledgeable. She didn't even notice that after asking for salt and not eating the ceviche that she should have asked if it was ok. I had the ribeye which wasn't bad, but you can get much better steaks in town for the same price and I left feeling like we overpaid. The ambience is ok, but my wife was facing the bar and there was a constant flashing of TV's and a color changing pillar that was distracting. Wouldn't choose this place for a special occasion again.

Service is lacking. Food options on the buffet poor and overpriced. I tried to order from the menu, but they were out of ingredients to make the listed breakfast entree on a Saturday!! I expect more from a “boutique” hotel, it was like the breakfast options offered at an extended stay hotel. There are so many great places nearby to eat breakfast/brunch. Don’t waste your time or money here.

Happy hour $5 wine was a pleasant surprise. Domestic beer was shown as $3.50 on the Open Table menu but turned out to be twice that. Inexpensive and tasty Happy Hour food offerings but not much variety and not what is shown on the Open Table menu for this restaurant. Premium wine by the glass is $9 -$14+ and not what I consider great labels for that price.

For dinner, the crab cakes I ordered were like none I've ever had: 3 thimble size stacks. Very strange. My husband's "12oz double chicken breast" @ $18 was not nearly that size and after adding 2 sides increased the price considerably. He said it was good but not as described on the menu.

We stayed at the Eilan where this restaurant is located, so this restaurant was convenient after traveling all day. But we probably wouldn't return.

Even though the bar is on the other side of the restaurant, there was a party of very loud drunk people whose voices carried over to the restaurant. It was hard to have a conversation at our table without raising our voices. The Bar patrons left about half way through our dinner and it was much better.
