My wife & I made reservations for the Thanksgiving day buffet. We assumed we'd be overlooking the lake in the restaurant. Not so. When we got there the restaurant was closed and the buffet was moved to a large ball room with no windows and hence no view. Instead of the nice ambiance we expected it was more like a wedding reception. While I understand why it was done that way it was still disappointing. The staff however was very attentive and the food was generally good. I thought the turkey in particular was excellent as was the cranberry sauce. I also had the prime rib which was good but on the well done side. As an afterthought I tried some of the sushi which was pretty poor. It was dried out & chewy with little variety to choose from. They should have just skipped that part as there were plenty of other choices that looked much better. Sparking wine & mimosas were included as was a rather large variety dessert table. In general I thought it was a little overpriced but at least they did not try to nickel & dime us with extras and even the parking was free. And as I mentioned before, the waite staff was very good. Given that this was a buffet held in a generic ballroom and not the usual fare in the restaurant overlooking the lake I would estimate that a dinner there on a normal night would be very pleasant indeed.

Wonderful Thanksgiving buffet! Beautifully put together, very comfortable atmosphere, lovely wait staff and a buffet with something for everyone. Quality food with a great selection. We are not usually buffet goers, but have made this Thanksgiving buffet a tradition for the past 2 years and always leave happy. The kids love it..and I have picky kids with mature pallets! I would highly recommend this for a fun family TG meal if your not cooking. You will not be disappointed! Butternut squash soup, moist and delicious turkey, all the sides and a fabulous dessert spread, with mimosas to top it off:) Just as a note, it is not cheap, so check the pricing before you go, but it is worth every penny...it is a high end buffet.

We were very disappointed in the fajita buffet the night before the 4th of July. The salad looked ok, but the fajita meat was tasteless and dried out, and the tortillas weren't good. We had drinks before our meal, and the margarita was undrinkable. The bill was $70 for a very bad meal. Needless to say, we won't go back again.
This is sad, since it used to be one of our favorites.

Made reservations for a Friday, specifically for the fajita lunch, which is a Friday "thing" at the Hyatt. Reservation was at 11:30. We were told we couldn't order the fajitas because they were expecting large crowds that day and wouldn't be able to accommodate everyone! Not where we would have picked for lunch had we known we would just have to order off the menu.

We chose this restaurant for Easter brunch, as it was one of the only Sunday brunch places that offered a reservation. Honestly, it was very pricey (which isn't surprising for an Easter buffet), but the food was just okay. Most of the "hot dishes" were lukewarm at best. The servers were very friendly so it wasn't a terrible experience, but if you have the time to wait I would definitely recommend following the crowds to the better food next time.

Had Sunday breakfast on a date with my husband. Great customer service and food at the buffet was delicious. We especially enjoyed talking to Jose at the Omelette Bar.
It was quiet - just how we like it because we could actually carry a conversation and hear the other person. It was perfect for us. Nice views of Town Lake too!

We went to celebrate my son's 21st birthday. We had the brunch and were very happy with the selection of food. The omelet's were awesome too. The service was quick and very attentive to our needs. Love the brunch and would recommend it to anyone in the Austin area!!!

Gr8 place. Just would have been nice to know they were having some construction going on and the restaurant was actually on the first level as opposed to their normal second floor location.

The Thanksgiving buffet was terrific. Everything we ate except for desserts tasted great and the selection was phenomenal. I suggest that future Thanksgving buffets include the full turkey rather than mainly the breast because several people asked for dark meat (which often goes better with the gravy) and there was none. An organic free range turkey easily fits the overall menu. The live music was also great. The several desserts we tried did not match the rest of the food, although some we did not try looked delicious. The ballroom lighting does not quite work because it was too dark, almost gloomy for a brunch meal, but the food made up for it. For those who do not want to cook on Thanksgiving this is a fine alternative.
