Although the food was good and plentiful and the service was nice, there were so many children being allowed to run around that it just created a "zoo" atmosphere. The noise level was unreal, and ruined our Sunday brunch. The place is big enough for management to attempt to divide sections, but of course none is made, the main concern is to get in as many people as possible and ring up those $$$$! We won't be back.

I thought the quality of the food was exceptional. I was a little disappointed at the lack of variety. I am health-conscious and vegetarian so finding healthy vegetarian options was hard but the things I could eat Were delicious. The other thing that was disappointing was a drink wasn't included. For $23 I think a coffee or orange juice should be included with your meal.

Arrived and seated on time for reservation. Server arrived after we sat with plate from buffet. Ordered water and coffee. Finished first plate of food no server anywhere. Went to front desk. Girl at from desk got us coffee and left an empty coffee pot at table. Server eventually came to table and we asked if he would leave a coffee pot for us (he did). Finished and waited for server to return. Eventually had to go to front desk again and ask for check. Girl at front desk didn't seem to think that asking for everything at desk was an issue. Oblivious. Wouldn't reccomend or return.

When I made the reservation the website was not well publicized that the Mother's Day Brunch was a different price from the regular Sunday Brunch so I was shocked when I arrived and saw the price was $69.99 pp! I told the hostess and they offered us a 20% discount. That was still more than I wanted to pay and it was already 1 pm and I knew I probably would have to wait an hour or more at another restaurant so we paid it for our party of seven! I don't think I will ever pay that much for another brunch no matter what the occasion.

Excellent special occasion brunch/buffet -- we went for Mother's Day. For the offering, I think the price was a little on the steep end. Food was very good -- but I would not characterize it as outstanding. I think they should have at least two prices -- one price for brunch with champagne, then another price for without champagne for the non-drinkers. They ran out of desserts I wanted to try early -- the coconut macaroons and the crème brulee; I don't consider this acceptable given we paid the same price as the early diners (plus we arrived at 1:00 and last seating was at 2:30). Overall, a good dining experience and celebration.

We had Mother's Day Brunch that was one of the best ever. So much selection of food & great Prime Rib. The food is freshly made & my daughter loved the garlic potatoes. Upon arrival, Moms were given a rose by the valet & again upon restaurant check in. The entire staff is friendly, kind and very attentive. There was a beautiful ice sculpture at the entrance with a selfie station. The Champagne was free flowing!
If you want a wonderful dining experience for Mother's Day then choose Sea View at the Hyatt. Bon Appatit!

This is the breakfast restaurant for the Hyatt Manchester Grand Hotel and offered a buffet meal. Food was good, and the buffet was kept stocked, but not as much diversity in the food as one might expect. This is a convenient place for a business meal where the focus is on business and not on the meal.

While in town for the San Diego Airshow, we stayed at the Manchester Hyatt and ate breakfast buffet at the Seaview restaurant there. Very bright and open dining room, high ceilings, plenty of natural light. It was super clean, and functioned well to serve buffet breakfast and other meals. Friendliness and helpfulness of all restaurant staff was very good here, and the hot buffet food was extremely tasty. Best bacon we've had at a hotel, and we loved the made-to-order omelettes. Plenty of fresh ripe fruit, muffins, waffles, eggs, sausage, etc. You can choose to sit at the small outdoor patio with umbrellas with a peak view of seaport village and a bit of it's harbor. (Nice place to walk around after breakfast too). Next time in town we will stay at this wonderful hotel and eat breakfast here at the Seaview room again. $23 Saturday buffet was well worth the money and convenience.

The brunch was excellent. There was a lot of people coming at our arrival and there was some confusion on the part of the receptionist in giving tables to people who were just coming without reservations and our group of four who had a reservation. The receptionist had told me to stand near the reception area and they would announce my name shortly, but I saw all these others who were getting beepers, being given tables before us. So, I went to her and asked when we would be getting a table and she said she was sorry for the delay and got us a table. It was only about 15 minutes late and not a big deal.

Delicious food and variety of selections. Food was very fresh and they had smoked salmon, omelette bar, waffles with toppings and many other options. The only downside is they added 18% gratuity to the bill, which I thought was excessive for a buffet.

Table is really small. The family of us (4 adults + 2 kids) were put in a high stand table usually you will find fits 4 people max. The plates are normal size so ends up the table is super crowded. Also it's not super family friendly to put kids (the youngest is only 2) into high stand table (they stack two high chairs together for one kid to make up the height for them to reach the table. Not even sure if this is even safety compliant). Also service is not good at all. Server made you feel requesting any from her is asking her for a big favor. Will not recommend sorry.

The price. Very expensive for muffins, cookies, cold cereal, oatmeal and fruit. There is nothing special about this meal that warrants the $21.95 per person price for a continental breakfast. Or $26.95 to include meat, pancakes or waffles.

The wait staff was excellent!

Boasting the title "Seaview," and being at the Hyatt right on the bay, we were expecting to have a view of the bay for our friends visiting from out of town. We sat on the patio and could see the tops of a couple of yachts. The inside dining was very loud.

However, the service was great and so was the food!

Previous visits had led me to remember it as an elegant place for brunch. This occasion however was not the same. The restaurant has been moved & redesigned and unfortunately felt like a Las Vegas buffet. The prices were high for the quality and choices of selection. The noise level was quite high, especially as we were seated by the kitchen. Alcohol orders took forever to arrive. Powdered organic scrambled eggs are still powdered eggs. Pastries/breads did not seem fresh.
I enjoyed the fact that my family was together for the meal, coming from quite some distance for this special event, but in the future I'll make the decision to sample the nearby restaurants.

Excellent food, especially the selection of seafood and fresh sushi. Service was good, but docked a star because we had to ask several times for drinks and subsequent refills. Also did not like our first table and had some hassle being re-seated, then not having enough chairs. Overall good experience, though.

We dined here for their Mother's Day brunch, it was amazing. The food was all delicious with a strong French influence. The service was also amazing, our waiter Danny was very attentive and personable. He made sure all our needs were met. It also wasn't overly crowded when we dined. I can only imagine that their normal brunch is just as tasty.
