    I opted to go to the US Grant because of the live music. We were sat and after 10 minutes they were done. When asked they said it was because we were the last seating. They completely deceived there advertising. I would not go back. The food was not that great. It was cold and the service was mediocre. We had to track down the service folks for drinks. We won’t be returning.

    I would say there was a lot of food. But a lot of the food was cold by the time we were seated. They even ran out of cappuccino by the time we got to desert. The mash potatoes were cold and lumpy. The gravy had a film on it. We didn’t really know what we were supposed to do because no one really greeted us when we sat down and told us what to do or offer us any drinks besides champagne. I’ve had better dinners and I probably would rate this a little higher if the total bill want 381 for two people.

    The best Thanksgiving Holiday Buffet that we have ever experienced!!! Live music, exceptional service, room decor with a soaring ice sculpture and action stations around the room...topped by sparkling chandeliers, fresh flowers on every table, satin napkins, champagne and Mimosas, creative desserts, and on and on.... What a great job by the staff at the U.S. Grant Hotel! My family (party of 12) is still "buzzing" about our fun day...!

    We had a great time! The service and quality of food was top notch. The ambience and decor for Mother's Day brunch was wonderful. We thought there was a nice balance of food for both adults and kids. The flower bouquets they gave out were a really nice touch including the live Jazz trio. It is pricey, but was definitely worth the experience.

    The Mother’s Day brunch was very pretty. They had bouquets for all the moms. The food was good and they had a good variety. It is very very expensive for what you get but it’s Mother’s Day and it feels Special.

    Worth the money. Food was hot and fresh, and a lot was made to order in front of you. This is our 3rd time for the Mothers Day Buffet and will probably be our go-to for brunch.

    Very good East buffet. The Thanksgiving buffet a few years ago was more outstanding. We had a late seating so the food while good was not so fresh from sitting under the heating lamps.

    I have lived in San Diego a number of years and been to many brunches- This was the best dining experience ever on a busy holiday, Easter. We were seated promptly, the ambiance was exquisite, the service A+++, and the many food stations, fresh and delicious. We will return and I’ll recommend to my friends. One small detail. Senior receive a discount and I mentioned one that we had one in our party- That was not reflected on the bill and because the rest of the experience was so outstanding I chose not to mention/ request a change. Well done- thank you for making our Easter meal/ experience so special.

    We were greeted warmly upon arrival, showed to our table where the waiter explained the various stations and the food they had available. There were 2 waiters constantly monitoring our table, filling our water and champagne glasses and removing used food plates. Their service was excellent as were the attendants at each food station. The array of various food choices was fantastic, the food was very tasty, and the live music was at a lower level and very enjoyable. What a wonderful experience that we look forward to on Easter and Mother’s Day each year. Please make reservations early as this event books up in full each year. The Executive Chef was on the floor checking in at various tables to ensure guests were enjoying their meals.

    The 22% "Holiday" charge was an alarming, unexpected surprise that wasn't mentioned anywhere when booking this reservation! I saw the actual prices for adults & children, which is already one of the most expensive Easter buffet brunches in San Diego but I agreed to it because I wanted to treat my family to something special this year. We have taken the Covid precautions very seriously so it was one of the first special restaurant outings we have had in the last 2+ years. When booking, it was mentioned that tax & gratuity were not included in the rates but again, we wanted to experience something special. However, the 22% holiday rate added onto the already elevated rates in addition to the the line item for gratuity was extremely disheartening and has easily made our decision to never dine at the U.S. Grant very easy in the future. I understand the business decision to not disclose the true rate and that makes things even worse!

    Excellent as always, compliments to the Chef. Loved the poached lobster salad, as well as the octopus dish. Your perogies are always a hit with The Wifey & I, we enjoyed all of the three fillings this year. Thank you.

    I wanted to give this 5 star as the food and ambiance. was outstanding. Let down by a lack of service and undisclosed charges. We did not appear to have a server and when we eventually asked for assistance were not told there was a champagne option available and opted to buy wine. Add to this a service charge of 22% was not disclosed when we booked or when we arrived or on the menu itself. Had a lovely time but slightly soured by the service charge.

    I went to the Thanksgiving Holiday buffet at the US Grant in 2011 or 2012 and it was fantastic. I think this year because it was in a different room, the food was way too spread out. I just felt like I was sitting in the middle of a big room and I felt uncomfortable walking the perimeter for food. I also didn't like the fact that and automatic 18% tip was added. I guess I just didn't feel like I received $67 worth of service.
