    Virtually nonexistent staff, We had called ahead for reservations a week in advance when we got there we were shown our table. We stood up to go to the breakfast bar by the time we got back maybe 7 to 8 minutes. The staff seated somebody else at our table. We were unable to be reseated. I guess that’s why they have you pay upfront. I had to apologize to my business associates on behalf of the restaurant. Needless to say, I don’t think we’ll be returning.

    For the price - the buffet was not only VERY limited but unstocked. The omelet station was the ONLY thing good and a 'blast from the previous names/ownership." Terrible service - had to seek it. Very slow clearing table of used plates. Had to remind of mimosa order. When checking in RESERVATION, had to inform of the 2for$35 special was NOT informed that the mimosa was NOT unlimited - it was served lukewarm. The coffee was very weak and tasteless. Worst experience ever under this new management. Will not be coming back again. Total waste of money.

    Buffet had basic continental breakfast items, but at $22 per person cost. Staff was friendly but food was not worth it. There are other, more interesting breakfast restaurants in town.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
