In a land where it's hard to find a good brunch buffet, the Grand Cafe at the Omni is a gem. We've been several times in the past year for various occasions and we always enjoy our experience. The service is great and the buffet has many items from which to choose. The chef on-hand turns out a wicked omelet or fresh mini waffles (with lots of topping options). From seafood to Asian dishes to comfort food to an amazing dessert bar, it's hard to find something we don't enjoy.

When we arrived there was no on at the front to check us in, so we stood around for a minute until a server saw us and seated us. We had made a reservation for the Saturday brunch, but it wasn't too busy around 11:30am so probably can just walk in. The food was great, they had dim sum, crab legs, shrimp, sushi rolls, breakfast (omelets, French toast, scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon), fried chicken, biscuits, sweet bread and a dessert station. It includes bottomless mimosas as well. Overall the service was great, the staff was really nice and the food was good. I'd recommend it to a friend and can see myself going back at a later date.

When you only have an hour for lunch and you're meeting up with people you don't get to talk to in person, it's the best place to meet. You can hear the rest of your party. The service is on spot and the food is always delicious. I'm extra thankful that they have added the Beyond Burger. It's so good!
Thank you!

I've been here several times, and I've been satisfied. This time I was with my brother who does not eat pork are beef, he pointed out that there selection of food was very limited. He barely ate anything. Also it took forever for them to refill the hot crabs. It's a nice atmosphere but it's small and the selection of food is limited.

The food was great and there were plenty of options for kids and adults. The service was also great the staff was very attentive and kept the refills coming. It was a nice day out so you could look out the window and see a different view of Downtown LA. My family and I stayed for about two hours, we ate laughed and had a great time! I will definitely be back again.

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!

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.
