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!

Seaview Continental Breakfast Buffet is good. The lox is fantastic and the coffee is nice and strong! The outdoor dining area is sunny and spacious. Great service by Francisco.

My credit card was double charged yesterday and after spending 15 minutes on hold I was told they can’t resolve it because they can’t see it in their system yet
based on getting double charged I would not eat there again especially when I’ll be on hold trying to deal with this again tomorrow

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!

Outstanding customer service, cannot find words of how great we were taken care of.
The waffles were the best waffles we have ever had, it was made fresh. Would come back any day of the week.

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.

Mercedes and the rest of the team did a great job. We ended up eating there two nights in a row because the first night was so good and the second night it was even better.

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.

overall experience was great except the expensive parking fee. i wish that they have emphasized about parking in their website. parking outside is expensive and only parking in the hotel is validated. it would have been helpful if all guests were notified of this.

My family have grand buffet while we visit San Diego, seaview buffet only have limited food selection for you to start with. Even fruit section, only have fresh pineapple, banana, couple melons, strawberries. That’s it! For the price $28 per person,I don’t recommend to any friends . But I do love their services!

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.

Seaview Restaurant is where our Family has celebrated Easter for the past two years. Not only is the food array absolutely decadent and bountiful (for the Champagne Brunch), but also the Easter Bunny and Egg Hunt make this venue a Family Favorite! We especially look forward to Mr. Serawit, who is the quintessential personification of warm hospitality and outstanding professionalism.

The breakfast buffet is outstanding. A little pricey but we are on vacation :) Service was excellent! The restaurant is part of the Grand Hyatt & the staff is amazing & friendly. The views are beautiful, as is the hotel itself.

Seaview is very clean and inviting with a beautiful atmosphere and view. Hostess and servers were friendly and welcoming and provided excellent service. The food was delicious and buffet stations were well maintained and clean. Having your own carafe of coffee at your table was also a much appreciated detail. It’s nice to be able to get your own refills and know it’s going to be kept hot. Also, we loved having the option of a continental or all inclusive breakfast. I would definitely recommend Seaview to any friends staying at the hotel and we will for sure be back in the future.

We went to Seaview for Christmas brunch. To summarize, the experience was delightful. Food was plentiful, the decorations were festive, and the overall value for a meal with unlimited oysters, shrimp, sushi, champagne is top notch.

However, although the assortment of food for this Christmas meal was plentiful, it was not as bountiful as the Thanksgiving meal served in Seaview, earlier this year and in years past. (Where was the turkey? where were the salads and vegetables?......on the desert tables, where were the cakes and pies?)

Having said that, the five of us had a marvelous time, and will come back.
