    Terrible experience. We came for Mother’s Day. We were not told that water was 7$. Two cocktails and water was already 100$. The waiter was terrible. Got way too close to me and my spouse. Invaded our personal space and made us both very uncomfortable. Food was terrible and over salted. No music just people talking. We all wanted to leave and cut our losses but we gave them a chance. Over 400$ dinner not worth 20$. Would have better food and service at McDonald’s. Never coming back.

    The food was great, ambiance for Mother's Day. It is always the same for us, we will return to a place if the food is bad to give it another try if the service warrants it. The service started great then got really bad toward the end. We were noticing other tables that showed up after us getting their food before us, and empty drinks is never good. It got so bad, I signed the food receipt, assuming that my reservation had a credit card on file. I left to get our vehicle, rest of the family stayed around taking pictures, we even took pictures outside the hotel (which is lovely) so basically 20 minutes? Then after leaving, only then did someone call me to say I had not left my card for payment. Our waitress never was around. So that can be approved for sure. (I payed btw, not dine and dash) :)

    Extremely disappointed in the Mother's Day Brunch in 2024. Our service (lack of) was unacceptable. Not sure of our the wait staff was brand new but nobody seemed to have a clue during this shift. Ordering was difficult and didn't understand what a mimosa carafe was even though it was the feature of the menu. FInally after much delay brought it and then no glasses. Food comes, no silverware. We asked for these items multiple times to multiple wait staff before they were delivered. I have been to Laurel for dinner before and had a good experience. Brunch, and in particular a special holiday brunch, was not worth it at all and the service was so lousy, we won't be back for brunch again. Perhaps the pre-set tip didn't help as no one had any incentive to do their job and unfortunately it showed.

    Very poor experience , it seems more like a Hotel Cafeteria than a Real Restaurant. Considering the Hotel’s Location we expected much more .

    The beet salad, spring salad and butternut squash ravioli were all amazing. Little donuts were great. Pink fizz cocktail very good. Service very attentive.

    Booked a table for Easter brunch - big mistake. It wasn’t even in the restaurant. It was in a separate, sterile ballroom, no ambiance at all. Plastic cups for beverages. No service. The food was just ok, nothing special. It was an absolute waste of money, a lot of money.

    Overpriced for the quality of food. Server was very friendly! Noise level was a bit loud with other peoples conversations. I could hardly get the people at my table. I would return if the prices were more in line with the quality of the food.

    Had higher hopes for the restaurant. Prices were high but quality of food was ehh. Example, I ordered Carbonara pasta, and there were large chunks of egg in it. Risotto was ehh also. The short rib was delicious and so was the chocolate bomb dessert. Drinks were good but again price was really high.
