The Hostess was lovely....not so much the waiter (very slow and charged for 18%gratuity for table of 4). Food was extremely disappointing as well.....past experience years ago was a totally different experience.

The Mothers Day Brunch was incredible with live music, fantastic service and a huge selection of dishes to choose from.

Terrible. Just terrible. I never leave reviews but this was an absolute joke. First, the materdee was also the bus boy, clearing tables and preparing for the next guests. Second, I had to pour my own coffee and OJ for the kids. Third, food was terrible. Cheap eggs, over cooked bacon and just bad tasting sausage. The buffet was awful. Paying $28 per plate was way over prices for the quality of food. I would discourage anyone from eating at this restaurant.

Went there for Mother's Day. The website did not say buffet only, but that is what we were told at the door. It seemed ok at the time but got a lot more crowded after we were seated. The food was fair at best (is that all that $22/person + tax + tip will get you?). The staff was overwhelmed and we waited just to get some water, finally went to pour some myself from the tray of pitchers when the host took it from me, not pleased, and poured water for us. The overall experience wasn't hideous, but not a good value-no need to go back.

This experience was abysmal at best. I brought my family and my friend to an Easter brunch that consisted of food not qualified to be served as complementary at a low class hotel. The French toast was cold and dry and was kept under heat lamps. The bacon was chewy, and the pastries were ice cold. There were boxed cereals and the fruit was limited. The only redeeming quality was that the omelette was freshly made. However, we had a good five minute wait for someone to bring eggs out to this remote location, and although there were only two of us standing there waiting, mine and my friend's omelettes were switched.I got my friend's omelette and she got mine by mistake.

Many years ago when I came to this establishment for Easter brunch yearly, it was a fantastic affair. It was actually held in the Riverside hearth, and there was an omelette station, hot food bar, a salad bar, crab legs, all you could eat steamed shrimp, etc. This time, when I arrived, I entered the Riverside hearth, and spent five minutes looking around for someone who could help me. What I discovered was that there was a Passover event being held there. So my search for where my brunch was being held began. It took another 10 minutes for me to find the location, only to be disappointed by what was being served. And to top it all off, I was charged for three adults and two children, when in fact there were two adults and three children. Given my experience thus far, I didn't think there was any hope in getting someone to correct the bill, which came to more than $100!!! I would not recommend this place to anyone ever, nor do I ever intend to return for any reason. Worst Easter ever! Thanks Lansdowne. 😡

Christmas Day Brunch

Food was mixed; some of the buffet food was cold off the buffet and some tasteless. The VA eggs benedict were stone cold, and the ricotta stuffed French toast was bland. There were a number of other dishes that just didn't measure up from a flavor perspective. Some bright spots. The garlic mashed potatoes and mashed sweet potatoes were excellent. The plum pudding was good as well.

Service was less than great and given that an 18% gratuity was built into the price, I would have expected my coffee to be refilled without having to flag someone down. Overall, it was way overpriced for the food quality and service (although kudos to the staff for friendliness!).

Our seating was at 2 and it wasn't overcrowded, so I don't believe the issues were related to too many people.

We will not be back.

Experience for breakfast buffet on XMAS eve not the best - cold food on buffet , ran out of items, etc. would certainly give them another chance as I would say this was an off day for them. Server outstanding - he tries his best to make up for food issues.

A bit over priced in my opinion for what you receive. But the waiter was willing to bring us a side of strawberries even though it wasn't listed on the menu.

The food was underwhelming however the dessert was great. Missed Sunday brunch because they stop serving at 1030am...the lunch buffet was very limited and did not live up to a five star resort .

We always come here for brunch. The menu is just breakfast now but food is overall very good.
