We used to go there for their special day buffets., like Mother's Day and Thanksgiving. But they stopped doing buffets and then they stopped doing any special day dinners at all.
Made a reservation for Mother's Day brunch through Open Table a week in advance. Show up at our reserved time and they tell us they are not accepting Open Table reservations! Seriously! Why use the service then. Also, I'm not sure how they can justify $45 a pop for the low quality food they put out. We won't be back and definitely wouldn't recommend to friends.
Fine if you're staying in the hotel and too tired to go out, but otherwise not worth the trip.
The food was average. The soup was served like warm. The salads a bit better. There was one server who kept disappearing.
Another great dining experience at Vineyards. Great service by wait staff
Our server was just great. Any special request was granted without any fuss. The food was hot and very well cooked. There were three of us all with different dinner request. The food was delivered at the proper time. We were not waiting nor did we feel rushed.
We had not been here for awhile since the changes in hotel ownership so did not know what expect judging from some negative reviews on the internet. But we always liked the atrium atmosphere so we had Mothers Day brunch with my wife, my daughter (a mother as of 3 months) my son in law and new grandson.
We had a 10 am reservation and were seated right away. The service was good and for the most part the food was also good.
The only two drawbacks were there was no fresh fruit and there could have been a better selection of desserts. Otherwise the selections were great from the carving station to the omelet bar to the seafood bar.
Best of all, there were no lines to get food which can be a problem on holidays.
We''ll come back.
We had reservations for Brunch on Easter Sunday at noon. We got there at 12:10 and had to wait in line for 20 minutes. We saw many tables opened, but not cleared off. I had my 87 year old aunt with me and she had to stand on a sloped walkway, not place to sit. When we went for the hot food at the buffet, most items were barely warm close to cold. Cold and hard Eggs Benidict was the worst offering! The poor choice of tongs to pick up food items caused people to struggle with holding on to items causing he line to back up. The display of Easter deserts was boring and cakes and cookies tasted like cardboard.
The Vineyards put on a buffet in the atrium of the hotel.Set up banquet style, with folding tables and chairs. We were there for the first seating @ 10 AM and things were pretty chaotic. The food was good for a buffet and their was a nice selection. The wait staff was totally lost as to what was going on. They all seemed to be willing, but didn't know the drill.
The experience was mediocre. The food was good but not outstanding. Our server however, was phenomenal. She was attentive and kind and really made the meal.
Food quite good (esp the vegetarian cassoulet, wow!), prices very reasonable, server was nice and properly attentive. No complaints. A good option to have, even better with 1,000-point tables.
Three dinners; Sea Bass, Duck and Steak. These were good; otherwise the rating overall w/b poor. However, the portions were marginal and the rest of the meal was not sufficient quality/quantity to justify $65 per head pre fixe menu price ($85 with wine pairing option). Lobster Bisque the worst I have had in 40 years of dining out. Tasted like weak tomato soup with half and half and a hint of lobster. Green and beet salads ordinary and small. The bread was of ordinary store-bought quality at best. Deserts were decent & plentiful but too sweet/not labeled. Service was marginal, with errors. Diners had to retrieve deserts from a separate location. The wine pairings were pedestrian. Overall poor value for the price paid.
Very good service, a very nice waitress. The food was excellent. We will definitely go there again.
We were quite pleased with our dinners and the service was excellent.
Given its location in the hotel it is a great place to go to get the outdoor dining experience while protected from the elements while seated on their expansive indoor patio
This restaurant is inside the Crown Plaza Hotel. The ambiance is very nice with an open flow in the large interior atrium. The menu and service was classic and classy. Our server, Bayardo, dressed in coat and tie, was efficient and very friendly. He was the shift supervisor. He had great recommendations on the food and wine. The classic menu is heavy on steaks and chops, but does include enough seafood, poultry, and vegetarian entrees to please most. The French onion soup and clam chowder were both excellent. Our two entrees were delicious, the portabello mushroom steak and the Rib Eye steak accompanied by a large Idaho baked potato. There is a full bar and a nice California wine list.
