I had Sunday brunch with my friends . The place was probably a third full and yet we didn't really get much attention . Buffet style with unlimited mimosas for $40. Food taste was average... wasn't bad . Enough choices . I'm giving a 2 star because of the staff. I'm not exaggerating when I say no one smiled .... More

Disappointing selection of hot food, which was frankly not very appetising- the food tends to steam in the metal containers and that makes it a bit soggy. They will serve you eggs anyway you like which does help to liven up an otherwise dull breakfast. Service friendly but a bit erratic

Ate here several times because it was easier for our group. Several times we were the only ones in the restaurant. Expensive, food adequate. My friend and I enjoyed the cheese fondue and glass of wine. Also, the oatmeal was really good, liked it better than their breakfast buffet. Had attentive friendly service.

Had dinner here the first night of my stay. Great filet and a lovely merlot. They were accommodating/helping with my friend's food allergies. Breakfast buffet was filling and tasty. And not rushed even on a busy weekend morning!

We recently stayed at the Westin Palo Alto hotel and had breakfast both mornings in this restaurant. Some of us ordered from the menu and others ordered the buffet. If you are hungry, even though the buffet is expensive, it is definitely a better deal than ordering from the menu. We all enjoyed our food and both mornings commented on... More

We ate here while staying at the Westin. It is a small, simple restaurant but the service was great and the food was wonderful. They offered a great selection of different type of foods; for example I had Cornish hens with goat cheese polenta (it was great!) and my husband had the Kobe Beef Burger which he loved as well.

Our meal was very good. We found it different but delightful. When ordering wine by the glass, they offered a glass and 1/2. Creative upsell.

They've had the same menu for ages, and frankly it's boring. Also, the last 2 times I've eaten there they overcooked the fish/seafood (a seafood stew one night--dreadfully overcooked, rubbery seafood; roasted salmon more recently--slightly less overcooked than the stew, but still far too dry).
