"While the ambiance was lovely under the glass roof, it was SUPER hot on a sunny Sunday afternoon. No ventilation at all. Food was mediocre, service was somewhat attentive, but somehow missed more than a beat here and there. Wouldn't say we got our money's worth...very pricey."

"The Garden Court is a beautiful location for a special birthday celebration. The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. We had several questions about menu items and received good advice from our server. The restaurant is not inexpensive, but the food and ambiance are worth the cost for a celebration."

"The lobby setting is gorgeous, but the food was disappointing - especially for the cost. My husband had the crab eggs Benedict, but could barely saw through the muffin. My daughter and I had the mussels and clams. Very tasty, but also very few. We both left hungry. For $28, the serving should not have been so skimpy. Additionally, the advertised sauvignon blanc by the glass was not available. Other than a lovely setting, we couldn't recommend it for the food. However, our waitress was charming."

"This was our second meal at the Garden Court and our first brunch experience. Both were disappointing and we will not return. The room is beyond beautiful however and I'd definitely recommend checking it out - maybe to lounge in the afternoon with a drink or the high tea service. The brunch menu is atypical (not the standard fare), but disappointing. We both ordered omelettes which came out very dry and bland to boot. Not much in the way of plate presentation. For a $22 omelette I did expect more. Additionally we had the crumb cake and the pecan roll. The crumb cake was also very dry (looked it had been thawed and left out for too long). The pecan rolls were okay. Not great, but okay."

"Easter Brunch was very nice. Relaxing ambiance. Wonderful live jazz, but the decorations werent as ornate and colorful as previous years and there were notably less flowers which took away the fairy tale magical feel that the restaurant had in past years for the Easter holiday. I absolutely found the food selection glorious. Huge variety of different selections for every palate. I have recommended this restaurant to friends snd family and will continue to do so. Super great for groups."

"The holiday brunch at the Palace is always amazing with an awesome array of food from breakfast to lunch items. The desserts are always a treat (and I always save room for several). The only downside is the equally awesome price - especially for holiday brunch."

"What a lovely space in the Palace. The physical space is soaring with a leaded glass ceiling - making you feel like you are outdoors even when it is raining outside. The Sunday tea is served on either tables with comfortable chairs or sofas. Service on a Sunday can be a bit slow - and that was fine for us - we wanted a leisurely time to talk, drink tea and share plates of savory and sweets. One bone of contention, we were 4 and many came as 3 on the plates. Wish the server had mentioned that as we would have ordered differently."

"the restaurant has a small menu and does not change often. I have eaten lunch at the garden court once a month and the menu has been same last 4-5 months. Most of time it is very good service-some time we get a waiter who acts rather rude. Last Friday we had a very nice waiter!
The price is not good but I guess we pay for the ambiance.

"What used to be a breathtaking, historic place to have lunch has been ruined by all the new, modern, gray upholstered furniture and the plain white coffee shop style dishes they've brought in. And no tablecloths on the tables!!! With High Tea priced at $76 per person you'd think you would at least get a white tablecloth over the beat up table. So disappointed in all these changes and so was our server. You can still look UP and the ceiling is spectacular, but not enough to warrant their food quality or high prices."

"The domed ballroom at the Palace is truly lovely. It is quite reminiscent of a bygone era or some of the finest hotels in Europe. The setting is lovely and the presentation of tea and scones very well done."

"The food and atmosphere was great. Service was okay. The server had other groups that took more of his time. Also, as a first time experience it would have been nice to have things explained a little more."
