We’ve dined at Westgate’s Sunday Holiday Brunch for 12 consequetive years and have never been let down! Although this year the noise was overwhelming, children playing in and around the tables, even disturbing the piano player or playing the piano when he was on break. Inappropriate.

We've been coming to the Westgate for Easter Brunch for many years. This year, the service was a bit lacking, and some food items, like smoked salmon and certain sashimi, weren't displayed. We had to ask for the item. Shouldn't be this way on a buffet. Had to ask for coffee and then the coffee was never refilled. Also had to ask for refills on water. The food was outstanding, as it is every year. The price of $89 per person is a bit steep.

We went for Easter brunch, so it was definitely busy. I was disappointed because it wasn't as good as it was two years ago. The sushi rice was horrible. The crepe station had premade crepes instead of making them fresh. Some of the food seemed dry or overcooked. The man cutting people prime rib didn't seem to know how to actually cut into into edible slices. They also overcharged my father who paid in advance. They said a child was 11 in under when he spoke to them, although the website says 12. We then paid over 50 dollars extra. Not okay. Upon check in the man sitting there on ipads and everything was unable to help us and made us stand there for quite some time while a line formed. Once the woman returned everything went well. They had tables in every possible place making it very hard to maneuver without disturbing other diners. Was very disappointed since this was so different from our previous experience.

Very nice hotel/restaurant. Food was not as good as we were expecting....but it was a brunch. Really great selection. Some items were terrific, others not so great. Example, the prime rib was not flavorful and very tough.
Bill for Easter brunch was $192. For 2 people including tax. For the quality of the food, a bit high.

Went for Easter brunch. After it was all said and done it was over 300 bucks for 2 adults and 2 kids. The menu was large, food decent. My main issue is paying 35 for each kid and being told they only have OJ for them to drink. It wasn’t even that we paid that and only had Oj to choose from, it was the attitude from our servers. They seemed annoyed to have to “ deal” with our table of 2 well behaved kids.
The Easter bunny was advertised for the brunch and walked by us once and barely paid attention to kids. Even the bunny seemed annoyed at life. They had also advertised a face painter and we never saw them. I asked someone and they didn’t know either. Again, just not the level of service you would expect.
Overall I wouldn’t go back and I would spend the money at the Hotel Del. Better service and more kid friendly.

Sunday brunch is wonderful for special occasions, the rooms are beautiful. The brunch is bountiful, sashimi, sushi, caviar, fresh seafood, wide variety of entrees, and excellent dessert selection. New feature, "made to order" Eggs Benedict so fresh poached eggs. Pianist with good repertoire, attentive service. Only negative change, down graded the dress code. This setting is too beautiful to allow shorts, tee shirts and flip flops.

It has been a few years since my last visit for Sunday Brunch. Unfortunately, the quality of food has gone down and prices have gone up. Family loved the sushi, especially the sashimi option. Lamb was good but breakfast items were limited and just ok. Drinks were strong (!!) and included in the price. It is missing the flair of quality fine dining dishes from before. It is still a beautiful location and a nice formal dining experience with excellent service. Enjoyed the experience but for the price and food, will probably not return.

The Westgate Sunday Brunch is my favorite anytime I am in San Diego. The ambiance, food and service is excellent.
My only negative is that they do not have a dress code. The hotel and brunch is elegant but it is a shame that people no longer dress appropriately for a restaurant of this caliber. Business casual should be enforced. No shorts, no sweat shirts or T-shirts. I would also enforce no denim or at least denim that is not ripped or holes etc. Frankly, I was shocked at how some people were dressed or lack of dress for this restaurant.

Perhaps it was because we arrived late, but most of the food hot foods were either cold or lukewarm. Additionally, having the buffet in the general areas seems rather odd. It made it feel as if the hotel decided on quantity of people rather than quality of food and atmosphere. In all, I felt like I was attending a conference rather than having an enjoyable Sunday brunch experience.

Every year I take my family for a special Pre-Christmas Brunch. I choose a different venue every year. This year was Le Fountainebleu at the Westgate. By far, this has been the best we've had so far - in over 10 years. The dining room is gorgeous, our server was attentive to whatever we needed. The food was excellent and I loved the way it was served in small dishes so you could just pick up a small dish. My family enjoyed it so much and all agreed it was our favorite so far. If you're looking for a brunch with a vast menu, this is the place.

We chose the Westgate for our Thanksgiving meal this year and were delighted that we did!

It was wonderful from start to finish from the convenience of the valet to the opulent food item choices. Everything we tasted was fresh & delicious.

There was even a chocolate fountain at one of the dessert stations!

What a wonderful experience!

For our family Thanksgiving Brunch his was a wonderful choice. Vera, our server was attentive and the myriad choices from the buffet were mind boggling, a chocolate fountain, caviar and blini, fine seafood raw and otherwise, turkey. As well as many other preparations. Rather than the ubiquitous common spreading germs, many of the cold dishes had been prep later into miniature plates and bowls.....much more sanitary! Of course lots more dishes to be washed so thank you dishwashing team.
The rooms were elegant,flowers beautiful and the ambiance of the piano perfect in the background.
Price steep but worth it for an of so special occasion!
