    Food was very cold because the burners weren't keeping the food hot. Some food was very dried out, I'm figuring because some buffet stands weren't closing all the way. I don't eat meat so I was very disappointed when they ran out of crab legs. They also ran out of cheesecake and other desserts, for paying over 200 for 2 people I expect to be able to get what I want. I'm very saddened to put this review and wad really excited to come. I will not be attending next year.

    I had the Easter Brunch in 2022. The food was good and the hotel dining area is incredible. I love this place and I am so happy to see these events returning.

    Terrible food and the buffet was very small. Not even half of what they used to put on. It was about a $30 per head brunch. They charged $100 per head terrible value. They did not refresh the food often and it looked very wore out. So disappointed we always in the past enjoyed the Sunday buffet at the Hilton but certainly not this time. We won’t return. Very disappointed

    We booked the easter brunch knowing what the Orchids is capable of. This time we got disappointed. If the food was available it was very good but the availability was very limited. Especially the desert section was a pure disappointment. We hope this is a one time glitch and the Orchids can find its way back to the old quality level.

    Went for Easter Brunch. They actually ran out of certain foods before last seating - prime rib, crab legs, and later ALL desserts. The Manager did his best to apologize and offer discounts but the whole thing never should’ve happened. Service was excellent and the food that was available was delicious.

    Attended Easter Brunch and was pleasantly surprised. I was worried that the experience would be different due to Covid. It was not and definitely an enjoyable time. Can’t wait until they host it every Sunday again.

    Thank you to all the staff who were there away from their families to share with others on Easter. Truly appreciate their time. Always very good. We have been coming for 15 years minus the last two. Always a good time to share Easter everyone. Randy Kobman

    *the menu listed on open table is outdated! Front of the house staff was friendly, but obviously overwhelmed for a Saturday lunch. Food was okay. We’ve eaten at Orchids a few times in the past so had high expectations that were just not met.

    Perfect for family celebrations. I prefer the old name: Orchids at Palm Court, Grill is so bland, unclassy and overused, does NOT do justice to the high class restaurant "at Palm Court!" It will always be Orchids to me, changing the name is tantamount to removing all Art Deco decor!

    We drove over an hour to experience the brunch here. Based on prior reviews I expected far more from the experience. The restaurant was not busy and we arrived early but we were told to wait to be seated which was fine. However based on how they demanded punctuality by stating we had to be seated at our reservation time we were frustrated that we ended up waiting past our scheduled reservation. The buffet areas were quite small and if you wanted a made to order omelet it was a 10-15 min wait. All the rest of my food was ice cold when I got back to the table. We had followed the route that our server suggested. Hands down the best part was the cold shrimp and crab legs. I would recommend attending just for those. Everything else I could take or leave. The desserts were absolutely not to par with what I would expect of this caliber brunch.

    Was a very busy Sunday with lots of small children not behaving very well. This has not been my usual experience and detracted from the ambiance I’m used to and was hoping to share with someone who had never been. Food was excellent but was not getting replenished as easily with do many patrons. Overall still very good.

    We had an early breakfast before checking out, and the food and service were good. The hostess first tried to seat us in a giant booth sort of thing in the very dark section of the eating area. After we asked to move to a regular table in an upper section near the window, it was light and pleasant. Price was high but the buffet was fairly extensive. We were there early so it was not crowded or loud, except for a couple who brought in a noisy toddler and were seated near us. Luckily we were almost finished with our food.

    The setting is elegant, the service was very prompt and friendly, and the food was delicious. We had a brussels sprout appetizer that was superb, and the beet and goat cheese salad was also wonderful. The restaurant is very quiet and so makes a lovely place for a get together to chat with friends and family.

    I would recommend for the ambiance. Lunch was good but not great. I understand that they don't get the number of guests during the lunch hour compared to dinner, and it makes sense that there would be limited options on the lunch menu. I had the fish tacos and I've had better elsewhere. Service was very good but I would choose somewhere else for lunch.

    Excellent brunch with many things for all. Great desserts, perfectly sized to allow you to try several. Truly beautiful Art Deco room, and the live music was wonderful! My only problem was that those of us who just wanted waffles/breakfast meat were stuck in line (for far too long) with the folks waiting for omelets. This should have been split up to allow for more movement among the warm breakfast items. Otherwise perfect experience!
