    To start off with the front staff were great seating us. Our waiter was on top of keeping our champagne glass filled and very nice. Unfortunately there was one rude and unfriendly person. The chef at the omelette bar. The one that takes the order, no greeting, not even a how can I help you? Very rude. And I’m sorry, but the food was very bland. Also, I have never been to a place that puts a time limit on the bottomless, I felt I had to drink fast, I did not like that at all.

    We had great breakfasts for 8 mornings. Good variety of food. Liked the lattes and Earl Grey tea. As loyal Hyatt globalists, we appreciated the Globalists benefits and service. We had transferred our hotel reservation from Hyatt La Jolla Aventine because their restaurants were closed and they only offered Grab-and-Go breakfast bags. We are so glad that we switched to Manchester Grand Hyatt. We appreciated the oatmeal with dried fruit, smoked salmon, excellent cooked-to-order omelets by Santi and the specials at the omelet station like waffles, avocado toast, Caprese toast. The real star of the show was the friendly service by the dedicated hard-working staff. Leslie greeted and seated: she remembered our names, Globalist status, and where we liked to sit. Servers Sammy and Serawit were engaging and welcoming. Omelet maker Santi was cheerful and positive, even when she got slammed with a crowd all at once. Leslie, Sammy, Serawit, Santi were all delightful, offering a personal touch to us (and the many other regular guests) to what could have been a boring, repetitive menu and stay.

    We used to really enjoy going to the Sea View Restaurant for Sunday brunch. It was a good price and the quality of the food was excellent. The service was also great, with waiters constantly checking on us. However, this year the service has become almost non-existent! The waiters only seem to clear tables and it is hard to even flag them down for something. Beverages have now become self serve and the fruit is not even ripe. I understand there is a shortage of employees, but having someone walk you to a seat when there are so many open tables (where people could simply seat themselves) would free up some staff. The only good part were the baked goods, which were delicious and fresh. The price for the Sunday brunch has increased at least $6 per person for this poor service. It certainly is not worth the price anymore. We could get better at a self-serve cafeteria elsewhere. I doubt we will be returning now. It's hard to believe this is actually a 4 star Hyatt hotel.

    This is good choice for breakfast in the area. Some of the food choices are only average (frozen and reheated, and powder or otherwise, instead of fresh). Other food choices are excellent (fresh, or from scratch). Service is outstanding!

    Phenomenal Christmas Day champagne brunch with the best food and service. Especially loved the jumbo shrimp and Pacific oysters. The crawfish chowder was the hit of the day. Yes, there was turkey etc.... and that was good too. Custom made crime brûlées and the desert bar capped the culinary experience. And thanks to the Hyatt, we got the senior price ( we are that old) See you next year!

    We have been coming here for Christmas for almost 20 years. Every year the price goes up, significantly this year, but the food selection has always been worthwhile. But not this year! The prime rib was gone, other dishes were so-so, dessert choices were slim and nothing special! Next year we go somewhere else and start a new family tradition!

    Great Thanksgiving buffet with lots of fresh seafood as well as turkey and prime rib. The salad bar was amazing and the sushi was very good as well. Plenty of champagne for the table. Desserts were the only disappointment. They were good but not fabulous - all things pumpkin. The server was very attentive . I would definitely go back for another holiday dinner.

    We had a group that went for Thanksgiving. We had a reservation and were seated promptly by a very friendly woman. I was not impressed at by the ambiance of the room. Seriously it kinda reminded me of an upscale cafeteria. Very drab room, and for "Seaview" there was a slight water view wedged between two buildings. The food as good with quite a variety. The servers were all friendly and efficient. I think what really soured me was the bill. I knew the per plate price and I figured in the tip and tax. The bill reflected more than that with something like a resort fee. It was only about $40.00, but it seemed itemized like a hospital bill. Anyway, not again.

    We were the first guests and they didn’t sit us next to a sea view window. I even had a reservation. It wasn’t till later that I even realized we were at a restaurant that had a view. Who were they saving those seats for. Banana muffins were not labeled as banana (which I am allergic to) and I accidentally had a bite before I realized. Omelet barely had any eggs in it. Just thought the quality of food was not good overall, especially for close to $30 a person for breakfast.

    We were very disappointed with our experience. The food was way too overpriced & expected better quality & more if it. Our halibut was over cooked, dry & tasteless. Both of our potatoes were barely warm & our carrots were hard. You needed a steak knife to cut them. We left hungry & unhappy.

    The brunch at Seaview was amazing. The family absolutely loved it. We showed up early and the staff accommodated our party of 6, asking if we wanted to sit outside (which I highly recommend on a sunny day). There was a wide variety of food to satisfy all types of cravings. The staff was extremely friendly; always asking if we needed anything else. Needless to say, we will be back soon.
