    The View is at Chaminade. Service, maintenance, quality at the entire facility has dropped significantly over the past several years. The View has bad food, but an amazing outdoor eating patio. On holidays, which was this occasion, there is a buffet, which used to be amazing. Now it's not bad for a buffet, but it's not worth the price. I recommend drinks and appetizers on the patio, then go somewhere else for food.

    Wow, they really over-extended themselves for Mother’s Day brunch. What a disaster. We weren’t seated until 30 minutes after our reservation time, and there was a big coffee and tea display in the waiting area that was out of both coffee and hot water the whole time we were waiting. Once we finally got inside, the buffets were just a mess! They simply weren’t being refreshed often enough. The coffee was all gone in the buffet area as well! Adding insult to injury, there were some beautiful outdoor spaces where they weren’t seating anyone, while guests were crammed into noisy high traffic indoor areas. I was so disappointed since my mom was visiting from out of town and I thought we would be treating her to a nice experience. Nope! The food itself was actually pretty good, but that did not make up for the woefully inadequate staffing and all the problems created by that.

    I booked this, thrilled to have a slightly extravagant Mother’s Day with my family! The food was overrated, the beverages were overpriced and inconsistent in quality. The server never brought the beverage I ordered, thankfully he realized before he brought the check.

    Mother's Day Brunch was a horrible experience - never again. The restaurant totally overcommitted the space. The wait for a table was 30 minutes even with reservations. Once seated NO ONE ever came by our table to see if we wanted anything to drink. I had to find a waiter and ask for coffee - that waiter never came with coffee and the found another member of their staff to get a cup of coffee. At the end of brunch I has to track someone down to try to pay. The tip was already included in the bill so I had to pay $32 to be completely ignored. The food was ok at best- but much of it had been sitting around for awhile and many stations were out of food. The parking was a nightmare with long lines to get to valet and then long line when we left. What should have been a nice experience with my mom turned out to be a total waste of time and money.

    Fabulous Mother’s Day Brunch This was a ‘quality’ spread and I was very impressed with the Buffet variety, and freshness. Beautiful views from the various dining areas and the weather was gorgeous, which added to festive affair. The staffing challenge with their servers was apparent but they were friendly and caring. I’ll be back !!

    STOP! Do not waste your time and money. It took over 30 minutes past our reservation to be seated. The server was nowhere to be found most of the time, making it difficult to voice our concerns or ask for services. The experience was frustrating and definitely distracted from what could have been a pleasant meal. I would not recommend dining here if you are trying to enjoy a nice meal with your family.
