    Came here for brunch for our friends birthday. We asked the server if they did anything for birthdays and they said yes, probably cheesecake. We also told the server we didn’t want our friend to know we wanted her to get a cake and to let it be a surprise. We were done with our meals then waited for the server to bring the cake. my friend never got her cheesecake.

    Great place for a Sunday brunch! Food was very good with lots of options to choose from including both breakfast and lunch items plus the champagne kept flowing. We were delighted to have Chris as our server, and he made us feel extra special (like we were the only ones in his section, although we weren’t).

    We were basically forgotten by the servers. Never got a refill of coffee. Waited 40 minutes for the check after we asked. Once we gave our card the server didn't return for another 20 min. The food was not as good as previous visits. Lots of food that came from the freezer and prepackaged items.

    It was New Year's Day 2023. We expected it to be very full. Surprisingly, it was still pretty empty when we arrived. Service was great and the food was excellent. It was a little bit more expensive than normal considering it was Jan 1. They did gift us a small wine bottle each which I guess, makes up for the extra cost.

    Absolutely terrible! Seemed as a full breakdown in the restaurant. Had booked a table. When we arrived the whole place was stinking. Had to wait half an hour to be seated. Then we were left to ourselves for another 25 mins. We then decided to leave and our New Year’s dinner and evening was completely destroyed. This restaurant seem to have no management at all

    I had never heard of this restaurant before finding it while searching for places to eat on Christmas Day. My son and I were very impressed with the whole experience! Beautiful decor, friendly and attentive staff, eye- popping buffet choices; everything was what one would hope for when dining out. Highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion!

    It was my first time. Not worth $85 a plate for Christmas. Food was cold the Texture of the ham was seriously like mush. I was so disappointed. I brought a family of 6. Spoke to manger and she never even offered a discount. I will never go back there. Macaroni and cheese was dry. Crème brûlée tasted like pudding, texture was all wrong. So disappointed.

    This was the Christmas buffet which we have gone to for years. The food options have gone downhill. The dessert table used to be full of beautiful things and I think they used to have a carving station. What was there was tasty but like many things, the prices went up and the choices got smaller. As for service, it’s always been stellar here but this day was bad. We saw our waitress once, she was totally frazzled. They need more staff obviously. This has been our Christmas lunch tradition but after yesterday, not sure we will go back. $85 per person may be worth it if the service was attentive and the food was excellent but it was not worth the time we spent there this Christmas

    I thought it was quite expensive for a Christmas Buffet and our Vegi's were undercooked and some food was cold (supposed to be hot). We had to wait for waters also. The options were excellent and the staff extremely friendly. The champagne was flowing. The ambiance was amazing! I would go again but not for a holiday meal.

    Great service despite ( appearance of ) short staff. Liked the Mac and cheese and breakfast items. Hoping to see oysters!. and prime rib and perhaps some baked fish( cod, salmon) . Did not see a chicken entree. Loved the addition of Mexican foods Pastry selection was excellent ( too many choices) ; available personal drinks was a plus. Overall great!

    Christmas buffet was very good and had a nice time, the person waiting on my table did the best she could. But she was assigned multiple areas and too many tables so for the first 15/20 minutes we were there all she could do was run checks to tables that were finishing. We had to ask for spoon and drinks from another staff member because she was so busy running checks outside when we were inside. This is not the servers fault. This is poor planning by the organizer who should have taken time, distance, and a server getting numerous requests to finish checks at same time into account when figuring out how to assign staff. A staff member initially came by and gave champagne, but our regular drinks didn’t arrive until we had our second plates mostly done, and we had to ask another staff member. Server did best she could, but situation not well managed and no other service staff stepped in for our section to assist. The gentleman who offered champagne and seemed to be more assigned to clearing tables did step in a little when he could, but he was also busy and not assigned as wait staff for the area.

    Overall we had a great time at the holiday brunch. The service was amazing and the food is good. Only thing I would bring up for a holiday brunch that didn't meet my complete satisfaction was no bottomless champagne and the pricing was set a little high based on this one aspect. We really appreciated the service and how we were greeted upon arrival.

    We made a reservation on a Saturday night, and the place was almost empty. We were seated at 7:00, bread and water arrived at 7:10 (not the waitress), and by 7:25 the waitress had not even taken a drink order or even said “hi.”. The waitress was making endless “small talk” to a family sitting at the only other occupied table in the section, and she literally stopped at their table 3 times as they were done with their meal and didn’t even acknowledge us, and we were only 4 feet away. 25mins (felt like a half hour due to frustration) and not even have a drink order taken, well that’s unacceptable for the price we would have paid for a full meal. We left $5 on the table and left. If it was swamped busy, I can maybe understand. The funny thing is that nobody even saw us leave, as the front hostess station was unoccupied also.

    The service was great and there was a good variety of food options. The ONLY “complaint” is the temperature of the food. Everything we ate could have been hotter. Everything was just a little warm, including the soup. But we do love the atmosphere and the service was phenomenal!
