    Everything was great! Except that we were the only ones there early on a Friday night. Takes away from the ambiance.

    Food was special, service was fantastic, atmosphere was delightful and menu was fun and inviting. However not having a omelettes, waffle or pancake station was unacceptable. I would highly recommend the Preston for any meal occasion.

    It was just okay. Parmesan frites are crispy and flavorful. Pretzel croissants are light, buttery, and airy. I had the sole. Presentation was BEAUTIFUL. But it was under seasoned, and came with 1/4th of a potato, and 6 turnip cubes. There's a difference between portion control and "skinny people food" when you're paying $30.00 for your entree, plus drinks.

    Food was very bland with menu in no way indicative to a brunch much less an Easter brunch. No omellette station, essentials such as biscuits and gravy and raw food choices are not a brunch. Service was horrible. One and done.
    The PrestonResponded on April 6, 2024
    Greetings from The Preston. Thank you for taking the time to share your review. As you noted our Easter Brunch is not a traditional buffet. We are sorry that this along with the service provided did not meet your expectations. If you would like to speak more about your experience please call me at 314-633-1186. Sincerely, Matthew Ely Director of Restaurants Chase Park Plaza Royal Sonesta
