    Fortunately, we were able to get a refund. We THOUGHT we were going to be having a sit down dinner in the fabulous circular dining room on the 19th floor. Liars. The dinner was downstairs, buffet style in a windowless dining hall. They had people cued up to enter the hall as if they were feeding the homeless. They charged more than they quoted and wanted to know if we wanted to add “bottomless” mimosas or bloody marys to our menu. Gross. This was Thanksgiving. A simple glass of champagne would have been fine. We got our money back, high tailed it out of there, and went home and ate cheese and crackers.

    Miss dining in the Rotunda upstairs. Dining in the grand ballroom is so unimpressive. Food was pretty good as usual although the prawns were oddly slimy. Also annoying to have to go outside of the ballroom to order cocktails. The servers should do it. Usually dine here for Thanksgiving. This may be the last time.

    We did the Thanksgiving Buffet and everything was delicious and plentiful. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The $30 bottomless mimosa/bloody Mary deal is really at best a break even proposition so buying individual drinks probably makes more sense the focus is the delicious food.

    Food was really good but they sat us at a small round table when we got there because other people were sitting at our assigned table. 4 people around a table used for 2 people was awkward and cramped.

    I always enjoyed Thanksgiving buffet at Bellevue, how ever this year they change the venue,from restaurant to grand ballroom,... it's the worst idea In my opinion ... it took out of the elegant and sophisticated ambiance. it is more like a mediocre wedding party with a standard catering company.

    XIX produces a spectacular, sumptuous and delicious prix fixe Thanksgiving buffet in the Bellevue Hotel’s Grand Ballroom each year. There are serving stations including a Raw Bar, charcuterie, breads, roast beef, ham, salmon and of course turkey along with a huge variety of side dishes and a cleverly designed dessert station with miniature pies, parfaits, cheesecake and cookies. Accompanied by tasteful jazz piano and bass. Timed seating assures adequate servings and manageable lines. Bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys available plus a full cash bar. This was my first visit. It won’t be my last. Highly recommended!

    Food took a very long time to come out and was room temperature when it arrived. Chicken and waffles was a waffle and three wings??- that is so weird. When check was brought, host rung it up for the wrong amount and never apologized. Server and ambiance was nice but that's where the experience began and ended. Food was mediocre and underwhelming, service was bad and very slow.

    I have come here over and over again beyond the last decade and I just feel like the quality of food has decreased. I am not getting or feeling the VIP Dining experience that I usually get from coming here. The staff and waiter were excellent please keep them for forever but the food wasnt all that great. It lacked taste, seasoning and the right pairings.

    One of the greatest restaurant to have a breakfast, enjoy an afternoon cocktail, etc.. Classy, with wondetful views of Philadelphia from 19th floor of Bellevue Hotel (hence the name). One of a kind places I would recommend to anyone who appreciates good food, impeccable service and simply beautiful interior.

    Excellent breakfast (buffet on Saturday and Sunday). We had just come from Club Lounge at Ritz-Carlton down the street for a couple of days, and breakfast was much better here ay XIX. Friendly calmly efficient service by Burgundy, Philip and Khalil--even though they were short-handed. Very nice selection. Greek yogurt, very good pastries (chocolate croissant, pecan danish), chicken apple sausage.

    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.

    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.
