          They took payment for the buffet before we were sat. Tipped assuming we would have service. Food was sub par and no one ever approached our table to check on us, or to clear plates.

          We had breakfast here 2 days in a row and it was delicious. Their fruit was especially fresh. Bacon had great flavor and regular eggs and spicy eggs. Just something for everyone.

          Institutionalized cubed potatoes were soggy and salty. Bananas looked ready to make banana bread from - overripe. They only apparently put out 3 cream cheese containers at a time. Institutionalized eggs looked horrible.

          Food is delicious and very nice ambience. An omelet bar or a few more selections and not so extra crispy bacon would be great and more in line with the value vs. cost

          Service from Mariah was excellent. Food was good but not rave worthy. Expensive compared to other local breakfast options. Actual menu and offerings on buffet not as broad as portrayed online.

          The wait staff was very friendly, polite, and tried hard to attend to our needs. I asked for decaf coffee and our server said he would make a fresh pot. I had an omelet which was good but a little watery. I wonder if this was caused by the kind of cheese that was used. The veggies were a little too crispy for me. I like bacon cooked very crispy but the bacon on the buffet was far from crispy, however, after asking if I could have it cooked further, a servers took several slices and had them cooked to my liking. This was greatly appreciated. The melons were not ripe, the strawberries were over ripe, the black berries were sour, but the pineapple was delicious. The coffee cake was a little dry but the coffee was great.

          Went to the Morning Dish for Easter Brunch. Hostess was fantastic. Waiter was good. Food was delicious. Breakfast options were amazing. No vegetarian or fish options (except for cocktail shrimp) for lunch was disappointing. But, overall, we had a lovely experience and would certainly go back.

          This is our new breakfast spot. My only complaint is the restaurant is temporarily relocated until remodeling is complete, however there is no signage directing people to the new location. We had to ask the front desk.

          Our family group of 8 came in and really enjoyed the breakfast. Service was great and food was good as always. The price is reasonable for a good breakfast buffet. Our kids love the character breakfasts so be sure to do more of the princess/superhero events please ! Keep up the good work.

          I was expecting more selection for a breakfast brunch. Maybe some croissants with a nice meat and cheese platter, or eggs Benedict or bagels and lox. Fruit didn't look appetizing, gravy for biscuits and gravy was lukewarm at best. Omelette was made quick and efficiently and the service was fine. For me, not the best value for the money. Bravo definitely does it better.

          Lily is always a pleasure to have as our server! My mother is handicap and it took us longer to arrive from parking, the rude manager says we're closing in 10 minutes! We were rushed to eat, we did not have the best experience this time. Lesson learned don't book near closing time if you have a kid and elderly people with you!

          I was disappointed in the brunch. I expected more breakfast dishes such as eggs Benedict and a breakfast casserole. I was given a fatty piece of ham and the roast was too red for me. Also food was not hot enough for me. Lovely restaurant but won't return.

          The food was not the best. We have been there before and it was much better. There was no organization to the crafts for the princess breakfast. It would have been nice to have more princesses to interact with your child.

          Website and menu is misleading. On Sunday’s only offer brunch. Food was ok for mass made sitting under heat lamps but nothing notable. Contrary to the website and opentable, al la cart is only available at select times.
