I absolutely loved the ambiance and the service at Versailles. This was my first visit and I was a bit underwhelmed at the food choices for such a beautiful place. The food was pricey for what was received. Im not sure if it's always like this but I was a bit disappointed because I was looking for gourmet food since the prices were gourmet. I ate dinner and breakfast there and had the same experience. I would be open to trying it again in hopes of improvement.

We went to Versailles for a New Years Eve dinner. The menu was a flat $85 per person and we assumed for that we would be offered quality cuts of meat such as lobster or prime rib. Instead there was trout and beef tips--very low quality and not prepared well. We were extremely disappointed and will not be back.

It’s used to be one of our favorite places to take guests to have great dinner after wine tasting. But no more after our recent visit. Will not go back.
Menu was completely changed for the worst dinner buffet ever. No more crab legs or any seafood at all, no display of breads and cheeses, no fruits. I mean everything there was awful except for the decoration. I was so embarrassed after bragging about this place to our out of town guests and then when we got there, we realized the buffet was not worth $10.00 per person. We paid almost $900 for 14 people. The buffet dinner menu on the website is misleading. There was no chilled seafood ice display, no meat and cheese display, no southern crawfish boil. Whatever they had there was just bad. Hostess was unfriendly. Only had 2 servers. They were nice and it’s difficult to communicate with one of them. They need to improve their food selections and their service to bring customers back.

Was very disappointed to arrive in the “conference room” replacement from the normal and beautifully redesigned main room. No explanation was given, just signage pointing us to a drab, crowded replacement room. We came primarily for the beautiful experience and immediately knew we had made a mistake. There was about half of the normal choices for food on the amended buffet, and our server was inattentive and had to be reminded multiple times for refills or drinks and lemons for the tea. I paid the same price as I usually do for none of the normal ambience and half of the food. We have been patrons of Versailles for years. You owe it to your guests to cut the costs when you are only offering a drastically inferior experience.

The experience was not good. I drove 1 hour in the rain in hopes of showing my friend an awesome dining experience. I did not know about the renovations and how they would impact the ambiance of NOT dining in the Versaille. The food options were poorly displayed with few choices. I was embarrassed because I bragged about Chateau Elan often, with heavy emphasis on dining in the Versaille. If you must do renovations, close completely unless you have an equal option. What was available was truly a downgrade and not worth $30+. What happened?

They called to confirm our reservation but failed to mention the new dining room that was scheduled to be opened by the time we dined with them had been delayed in opening. We only found out when we arrived and got pointed towards an old partitioned room for dinner

The brunch didnt start till noon.....Wouldn't you call that lunch? I ended up paying $60 for scrambled eggs, burn bacon, and greasy sausage. They didn't even have ham for the omelete...Very disappointed, to say the least.

We first went to the restaurant on Wednesday and had such a great experience that we couldn’t wait to return on Sunday. Well the food was all good but a few things we’re disappointing. First point the closest parking lot was all roped off for valet parking. Not a major issue but seemed to far exceed their needs. So we parked a little further out and walked in. I’m not sure why the valet Parker’s couldn’t do the walking?? When seated on this visit we waited several minutes for the waitress to take our beverages order. Not excessive but a little longer than expected. While waiting for her I had time to unfold my napkin - which was neatly folded but has noticeable stains in it. Surely it was clean but the stains were a bit offsetting. The good news is that Our food was all very good - tasty, hot and plentiful. When my coffee was gone and I waited for the waitress to offer a refill, I quietly wondered if I could get away with serving ourselves, but I deferred to my wife’s direction to wait. She was right as in another 5 minutes or so we were offered eventually refills. We love having a restaurant of this caliber nearby and fully expect management to resolve these trivial points that kept us from assigning the best available scores.

When we reserved our table at the Chateau Elan Versailles Restaurant we were not prepared for the massive amount of construction this venue is currently undergoing. The Versailles Restaurant is "temporarily" relocated to a dark, dingy, windowless room which the Chateau Elan calls their "ballroom". This depressing location was not the sort of place we envisioned celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. We were beyond disappointed and the only reason our evening wasn't completely ruined can be attributed to the friendly waitstaff. If not for them, we would have immediately turned around and walked out in search of a more appropriate restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. As a matter of fact, I still become very upset each and every time I think about how we chose to go to the Versailles Room instead of Nikolai's Roof. The Chateau Elan should really shut down this "temporary" Versailles Restaurant until the renovations of the actual restaurant are completed. At the very least, warn unsuspecting patrons on their website what to expect when they arrive. I'd hate to see anyone else's special celebrations ruined by the horrible condition of this venue.

Terrible and overpriced food at the Sunday evening buffet, the only choice available, in a dark dining room with consignment store outdoor furniture. They are renovating the real restaurant. However, there is no excuse for the food that appeared left over from lunch. The wait person from Eritrea was very nice and friendly.

I figured I should have just showed up to a cheap holiday inn breakfast for free for that crap. And you tried to offer me soda water instead of pellegrino!

Loved the live piano.
Hasan is one of the best waiters I have ever had. Extremely professional, courteous, attentive.

I wish the restaurant would enforce the dress code. I am out for an elegant dinner with my wife and saw men in shorts, flip flops, baseball caps on backwards in the restaurant.

We had a big problem with flies. We kept having to swat them away while we were trying to eat. The food was incredible but the flies nagging us and the ambiance did not allow us the romantic feel that we were desiring while celebrating out anniversary.

A wonderful place to sit and visit. Great - really great - service. The Food was ok. But just that. It was buffer night, so maybe it would be better a la carte.

I would give it another try, for sure.

We chose the buffet, which had excellent choices with a great salad bar, outstanding shrimp and mussel appetizers, wonderful beef, lamp and trout entrees and dessert offerings. We were not rushed at all, were able to enjoy beautiful piano, so it was a wonderful evening!

We love this elegant dining room and have chosen to eat here on several special occasions (communions, graduations). This Saturday it seemed quiet for lunch, only 2 other tables were occupied, but we did arrive on the later side.
Food is fantastic, large varied salad bar, soup, pasta, and 3 entrees per chefs choice (this time excellent grouper, chicken, and pork medallions, with roasted red potatoes and steamed vegetable medley). Fancy dessert selection but could be a little more kid friendly. Maybe add some cookies/brownies/ice cream?
All this for less than $25 pp is an outstanding value.
Service is very friendly, prompt and professional.
Can't wait to go back and eat here again after the planned renovation.

I ate at Versailles while attending a workshop nearby. I had been looking forward to an outstanding meal all day, but I was quite disappointed. The special salad that I ordered was just a head of iceberg lettuce cut into one quarter, turned over and surrounded by several sliced grapes and a few candied walnuts. The seared salmon came with brown sugar and dill coatings and was just too sweet to enjoy. It made me question the freshness of the salmon. The wine orders were also problematic. I had ordered a reserve chardonnay to go with the salad and a $25 Montepulciano to go with the main course. The chardonnay never arrived and the Montepulciano was very mediocre. And those "vines" out front, they are really just shrubs. There are no grapes grown here that I could find....disappointing.

Although the menu is somewhat limited during the week and some items were not available, the quality of the food was very good. My husband thought the filet was very tasty. I had the veal which was a huge portion and prepared well. The dining room is nice but quite casual for a fine dining restaurant. Our server was very nice.

Most of the food was pretty bland. There was a great amount of food, but I found it to be outrageously overpriced. Our server was very nice and attentive but did not emulate fine dining. The decor was ok, but I noticed SEVERAL spider webs in the corners and the windows of the atrium were filthy. Definitely not worth the price.

We have been to other brunches at Versailles before. This was the first time we attended for Mother’s Day. We had sticker shock when we saw the $85 per person price tag. In the past we have enjoyed brunch there for under $50 per person. There was not much in the way of breakfast brunch items, although our waitress nicely accommodated our son’s request for pancakes. I was also very disappointed that there was no fresh fruit. Definitely a disappointing experience overall- the staff was courteous and friendly- but seemed to be short handed. We will not come again.
