My nieces came for a visit and I wanted to treat them to a nice brunch. I chose the Grand Cafe because I treated my staff there for breakfast when my office was across the street. We always had a great time and the food was really good. The brunch and the great service were a hit with the girls so they left very satisfied.

I won't recommend this place unless it decides to improve their brunch game by 100% The only thing Grand Cafe has won is with their ambiance, service, and noise level. The food selections were underwhelming, inedible, and disappointing. I truly wanted to like it, but it really left a bad taste in my mouth as well as my 11 year old.

The variety of foods were great. The shrimp, crab legs and salmon were delicious and plentiful. The breakfast items were best tasty especially the made to order waffles and sausage links.

Everything was great for the exception that prime rib was supposed to be served and the meat they had was not prime rib. It was like top sirloin sliced thick. That was the only bummer and we were celebrating my 54th birthday.

Good selection of food - crab legs, prime rib, fish, chicken, omelette and waffle bar, desserts. A bit pricey at $55/person, but something to treat yourself and hang with friends & family every once in a while.

The food was good. The service was good until I gave the waiter a 20% coupon from checking in on yelp. His attitude changed and he was very cold toward us after that. Didn’t offer to refill our drinks or anything. Didn’t say thank you. I won’t be back or recommending this restaurant.

It feels good every time we come back here except that we would expect a little change on the menu based on the seasons. Our waiter was great and he kept checking on us which made the experience a plus. Would definitely come back!

My sister & I loved the relaxed atmosphere of this restaurant. The food was delicious & we had a great table by the window. We plan to meet there again at least once a month.

I went on the later end of the weekend brunch buffet hours. There was an hour left, but some foods were already running low, getting dried out under heat lamps, etc. This was my second time going. The first time, the prime rib was outstanding and the crab legs/claws were large. This time, the prime rib was getting overcooked under the heat lamp, and the crab legs/claws were definitely not large. There were a few tables like mine who were late-comers. The waitstaff was great and didn't rush us. They were very helpful. The host was not as nice as the waiters and bus boys.

Service was not as good as usual, took long, not as friendly, and it seems the prices went up. The stir fry is not a value for $20. I generally love lunch there, but not this time. I noted a birthday in my Open Table reservation and knowing they give a little cake for the birthday person, we had to mention a birthday. The waitress seemed not thrilled to be getting another item.

There were limited selections and some of the dishes did not have a lot of flavor (fried chicken). Additionally, the crab wasn't very fresh and it was hard to get any meat out since the shells were so soggy.
It wasn't worth the $60/head cost.

Yes, reservation using Open Table was spot on. Service by waiter Abraham was personal and cordial. Manager Dragan was also very professional and available. Omelette station was busy, but cook did his best to accommodate 4 orders simultaneously.

It was an excellent experience. The food was extremely good; however, I thought that that the desserts were not distinctive and were just average. The atmosphere was extremely loud; however, I adjusted as that is probably of buffets with all of the hustle and bustle . The service was really good. The hotel and the room were quite nice.

The brunch buffet here is one of the best kept secrets of Los Angeles! The spread of food is great with a wide variety of types of cuisine, a delicious seafood bar, and unlimited mimosas! I almost don't want to leave a positive review to keep the secret!

I made a reservation online for 2:150 PM. I found out later at the restaurant that the food was going to be put away in 30 minutes, at 3 PM. My understanding was, based on your website, the buffet was open until 5 PM. It's terrible that you mislead your customers that way. I am so disappointed with your business ethics. You will lose customers that way.
