The room was dark due to the limited windows and dark wood paneling. The noise level was okay; I would have preferred a quieter room.

We went to Vallard to celebrate one of our children's 18th birthdays. From start to finish, Shoyeb C. and the entire staff made this perhaps the nicest brunch we can remember! Not only was the meal fantastic, but the service was truly exceptional. Shoyeb personally chose the birthday cake, accommodated a rush meal request, and brought in a colleague to answer questions about the hotel's history. Moreover, the food was absolutely AMAZING. As promised, the roast chicken and the steak and eggs were incredible, and my husband said his Eggs Benedict were the best he has ever had. We truly can't wait to go back.

We had a spectacular Sunday brunch! The lemon ricotta pancakes and french toast were to die for and the eggs benedict had the best hollandaise I've maybe ever had! We will definitely be back!

The Gallery Room is beautiful and the service is fabulous. The food looked prettier than it tasted, My tea was warm, but not hot and the avocado toast is better almost everywhere else. All that said, the experience was classic and I would try again.

Arrived for an 8am table and had to wait 10 mins - service was v good and efficient and food good but $128 for breakfast (2 oatmeal’s with berries 2 juices 2 coffees) is ridiculous and then they try and pull the give you the check to sign without the itemized bill hoping you’ll add service again trick #ouch

Our first time in NYC and we were staying at the Lotte so we decided to eat breakfast here. The restaurant is gorgeous and the lemon pancakes were to die for! Pricey but definitely worth it for the ambiance!

Everything was amazing and server was so sweet but they had a man walking around serving OJ & coffee, poured a cup of coffee for me after I even said no. Thought they were being generous until the bill came. We had almost $30 in drinks on our bill that we did not know we were being charged for (the prices were not on the menu either).

The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is the service. And I’m not saying that the servers are not nice, lovely, friendly people. They are just slow as molasses. The ambience at this restaurant is beautiful and the food is unparalleled best brunch in New York City. Not huge portions, just perfect food.

convenient for breakfast of staying at the Lotte New York Palace.However small portions with large price tag and the waiters aren't that attentive as their tip is already added on to your bill.

Totally disappointing experience here. Notified the restaurant when booking that we would be having breakfast on our wedding day here. Could not order two glasses of champagne because "someone else has the key" to the drinks cupboard. What a shambles. Paid $32 for four orange juices, which were basically half the size of a juice I would normally expect. Left feeling ripped off and not special in any way. Absolute disappointment.

My daughter chose this restaurant to celebrate her 18th birthday with a special brunch. We arrived five minutes before our 11:30 reservation. They made us stand outside for a full 30 minutes past our reservation time. When they finally seated us, we could see there were several tables for four empty and available. Nevertheless, they seated us right next to two tables of unattended children under the age of seven. The parents were dining at their own table nearby. The children were loud, restless, and bored as their parents lingered at their own table. I felt like I was dining at Friendly's. Mini jars of jam and honey were available on the table, but the seals had been broken. They were sticky and used. That can't be sanitary. Service was slow, yet they were somehow there to clear my plate while I was still chewing my last bite. When the bill came, they had added a 15% service fee without mentioning it, which seems dishonest. A beautiful dining room, a delightful waiter, a fine menu, could not overcome our awful experience.
