    I was very excited to try my dining experience at XIX. It was sadly very underwhelming. Everything that came to the table was cold. From the coffee to our breakfast. Cold. How can my cook to order eggs be cold? Why are my potatoes cold? The view wasn't all that exciting either. While the restaurant room itself is very pretty, being at the very top of the hotel was the allure. You're at the top for the view. The service, on the other hand, was great. They were very kind and well-mannered. But I didn't come for the company. I came for the food. And $42 for parking is absurd. I would not recommend and I would not return.

    The service was excellent, and the waiter was professional and accommodating. The manager Burgundy, showed special attention to my wife and me due to our wedding anniversary. I would recommend breakfast at the Bellevue 19 to everyone. Also, the price was right. Great.

    We have celebrated Mother's Day at XIX before. I did not like it being moved to the ballroom. It felt impersonal. Plus the server to our table could hardly be found. I expected more for spending $900+ for a part of seven. If gratuity is included, then the service must guaranteed too.

    We've been there several times, however, not in the Ballroom. I wasn't as happy as I have been with Nineteen upstairs. It was very dark. It was a very cold, windy day and it felt like the air was on too high. Everyone was walking around freezing. I wouldn't spend that money for the Ballroom experience again. The ambiance was just not there. Big dark, cold room full of people, constantly walking around . I think it was congested with the food in the same room as the tables. We were seated next to the coffee and other stations and there were people constantly on top of us. Very uncomfortable.

    The venue was extremely cold and simply walking from the station to my table made the food cold. I was not given any instructions about what would happen when I walked in...would a waiter introduce himself? do I get my own drinks? and we were one of the first to arrive. When I asked a worker at one of the stations, she said I had to do everything myself, eventually, a waiter did come and asked for our drinks but never came back for refills. The venue was dark too, would work for a dinner setting but not for a mother's day brunch. There was an obvious lack of organization. The front desk didn't know how to use their payment machines and I was told only apple pay worked. Fortunately, they do take apple and android pay. We were a party of 5 and were were taken to a table for 2 and we had to wait for someone to get us to the right table. There was a lack of selection. They would run out of ingredients often and I had to wait, for example, whipped cream. The food that was sitting on the stations was even cold. The employees were friendly. I don't think the employees were the problem at all, but simply however organized this, missed a lot. Not worth the $90 and it was very disappointing since this was our first Mother's Day out since the pandemic. We did the mother's day brunch here before the pandemic and my mom was very impressed. Afterward, she told me to try something new next year. Real letdown.

    Made reservations but still had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. The host had an attitude and was rude. After being seated it took another 15-20 minutes just to be given water. The food was decent but the service was terrible. This was my first time dining at XIX, and will be last time dinning at the XIX.

    We attended Easter brunch here and I have to say it was quite disappointing. Of course the space is beautiful, but $300 for two people was too much for the bad experience. The $90 per person fee, was suddenly $300. We found this out when we arrived and had to give our cc card and asked if we wanted cocktails. It took 20 minutes before anyone came to our table. When we asked for a drink, we had to go to the bar where we were told we needed a wrist band which we then had to go and get. The food was spread out between four different rooms and awkward and awful. They had macaroni and cheese and dried up fish dishes in the same area with the desserts? We had to find clean silverware and clean napkins each time we returned to our table. The only thing that I could say was decent was the fresh shrimp. A huge dissappointment.

The food was extraordinary and the service was excellent. Something for everyone. Exceptional value for the money. Already made reservations for Mothers Day.

    Beautiful room, the waiter was doing his best at our Sunday brunch, but they were obviously short staffed. Food came out after almost an hour and was cold... quite disappointing. The coffee was hot and very good. I dont mind spending a bit more for basic breakfast in such a lovely environment, but cold food, not acceptable, and makes spending the money q real waste.

    Celebrating wife’s birthday. Was in the reservation notes. However, there was no acknowledgement. I believe the restaurant was in over their head. Long wait to be seated. Then sat for 25 minutes before bread delivery and drink order taken. Soup was room temperature. Medium filet mignon was well done. Dessert was beautiful but dry. Service team brought food for neighboring tables to our table on 3 different occasions. Manager nicely credited our meal by 20% without us ever complaining. Experience felt like a weeding or banquet style. Everyone gets the exact preparation. This was my first time at Nineteen and feel this was likely a blip. I can’t imagine this is typical given the reputation that they have. My wife and I will likely return when there is no price fix menu.

    Beautiful room- the ballroom at the Bellevue, majestic ceilings, wrought iron balcony gates, stunning chandelier. The Thanksgiving buffet was scrumptious but everything was cold because the room was very cold; the plates were icy. Having helped myself to sides, I had to wait for a turkey to arrive, rendering everything on my plate to become very cold. When we returned from the dessert buffet, everything on our table was cleared, including water glasses and my half-drunk glass of wine. We did leave scarves on our chairs to signal that we would be returning to the table. A waiter graciously brought me a fresh glass of wine and 2 glasses of water. All in all, it was a good experience with a few glitches that could be worked on.

    We enjoyed Thanksgiving at the Bellevue this year. Admittedly, XIX has a better ambiance but in the year of covid, having it spaced out more seemed fitting. The salads, breads, cheeses, meats and seafood were all delicious. There was a nice selection of entrees and sides. The service was very good and servers were plentiful. The only downside was dessert. There were plenty of them, but not a single one was very tasty. Others agreed with us. Offering better tasting desserts would be our only improvement. They could have had regular pumpkin pie (vs Pumpkin tarts with a mushy crust), a betty pie, pecan pie, some kind of mousse, something chocolate something and a cheescake (vs the yucky cheesecake tartlets). Anyhow, we enjoyed the main part of the meal and would go again.

    The Thanksgiving Buffett is outstanding! Every food item was done just right and all tasted fantastic. The timing was perfect. Each food station had easy access. The waiter promptly remove our used plates each time we returned to the buffet and he came around very often to ask if we needed anything. The noise level in the Grand Ballroom was quiet to moderate. All payments including meals, tax, and the included tip were paid for before we were seated so there was no waiting when we were finished eating. And the three piece jazz band were very good too and played throughout the meal. We couldn't recommend the Thanksgiving Buffet more!
