    Stunning venue, breathtakingly beautiful. However, the the most beautiful decorations (beaded lights) are taken away :( ... Staff is surely very nice and polite, food is mediocre. PS. marinated pears and fresh burrata were out of this world, but croissant sandwich and bagels were a bit disappointing. OVERALL, IT WAS A NICE EXPERIENCE, RECOMMENDED.

    A delicious brunch, with an unexpected item, shakshuka, on the holiday special menu. It’s REALLY good. We also had a topnotch server, Yazid, and will ask for him again. We decided not to wait for another holiday to make a repeat visit.

    For a high price tag, this experience left a lot to be desired. The service was extremely slow. Our server did everything in groups: took orders from several tables (I counted 4) at once, got all of the drinks for the tables at once (very precariously), and likely flooded the kitchen (rather than spacing them all out). The bloody marys were unexceptional and watery; I had the quinoa BLT bowl, which was very small and the bacon was non-existent - I think I found 3 small chunks in the bowl. Also - and I noticed this years ago when I visited - the entire dining room has a very strong, earthy smell to it - almost like mildew or mushrooms. It all takes away from the stunning views and gorgeously decorated space.

    We chose this restaurant because we thought it would be very special. Nothing remarkable about the menu, food, ambience, or service, though. The hotel that houses it is also under pretty significant renovation, and the experience of merely getting to the table was not very *snazzy*

    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).

    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.
