Almansor Court Ratings and Reviews
We've been coming to Almansor Court for a few years now and in the beginning u would've brought the whole family, extended family and friends because it was just that good and the variety of foods were great!
Fast forward a few years and the last 3 visits including this one, we will NOT return!
1) They hike up the price for Father's Day and Mother's Day too!
2) The food is not hot, the food is not as good as before, the food selections have changed and the quality has changed.
3) The Manager and various servers comes around asking is everything is ok and always when your mouth is full so by the time you can speak they've moved on.
4) Mimosas are not free flowing, they bring you a carafe of OJ, water and leave the left over champagne so you can serve yourself. They are not quick to pick up the used plates and then expect an 18-20% tip, WHY, what did they do??????
I'm sure you get the picture, this is no longer the brunch spot nor visit worth the $$$$$
My family and I went to the Mother's Day brunch on Sunday May 14th. We were seated very promptly after checking in, but after that, the service really went downhill. The servers we had were very nice, and very accommodating when they did come check on us, but they were absent most of our meal. I don't hold that against them, as I feel that they were overwhelmed and incredibly understaffed for the enormously large crowd that was present while my family was there. At one point I went and got a pitcher of water off of a bus tray myself because all of my family was out of water and no one had come by. When I went to get food, there were two very long tables near where the waffles that were being served that had lots of different foods, but when I went to see what choices they had, I found that multiple trays of food were empty and I didn't see employees in the area working to resolve that issue. Some of the food was very good, such as the waffles and the omelette bar, but overall, a lot of the food I had was very bland. I would not return here other than to go golfing.
Came here for mothers day. Making a reservation for a party of 11 was hassle free but let me mention that when we were taken to our table there was someone already seating there. Our table had already been given away even when we arrived 15 minutes early. But no need to worry they gave us another table within seconds. When we arrived it was super organized (given it was mothers day). We checked-in with one hostess and we were then directed to another location to we walked to our table. Everything look beautifully set up and the desserts looked great. But the reason for the 3 stars is that there is no organization as far as getting your food. It is a buffet style but the line was ridiculously long. It was confusing, everyone was standing in one line assuming it was for the food however it was not. That particular line just for the waffles. But there was no guidance nor signs stating there are multiple stations, nor where the lines started. Other than that the food was good and my mother and mother-in-law enjoyed the free mimosas. Let me mention champagne bottles were constantly replaced at your table without having to ask so mimosas were flowing the entire time. 5*'s for that
This was our first time at Almansor Court and it was wonderful. We were there for Mother's Day Brunch and it was terrific. There were a lot of different food choices and everything was hot and delicious. The room was nicely decorated and the facility was great. We will definitely be back for the brunch again. The only thing I would recommend is that the food area either be larger or more spread out. There were times the lines were at least 7 people deep and it was in a small room. I would suggest making the dessert area smaller and moving some of the entrees there. Also, they should allow people to access the food from both sides of the table. It would allow a faster flow of people through the line.
I went there with my mom for the mother's day special buffet. The ambiance there was very energetic and good for the occasion. There was only my mum and I on mothers day, so I was worried that we would be lonely and quiet from being just the two of us. However, the environment was very lively and we had a very good time talking and enjoying the food. There were a large variety of food including beef, seafood, a live omelette bar, and lots of delicious desserts. Overall, I would come back to this place.
We went for Mothers day - and I was very pleasantly surprised how organized and efficient everything was. we were sat right away (at our reservation time) and the buffet was great. There were some challenges with getting around, with there being so many tables and so many people, but it was manageable.
We've been to Almansor Court for Easter brunch twice now. It is VERY reasonably priced (one of the cheaper brunches around). There is a great selection and variety at the buffet and the food is much better than than some more expensive buffets. Ther service is wonderful as well.
We love going for brunch here . there is great selection and I love the made to order omelet and pasta stations . The desserts itself needs a little improvement in quality and taste. They just didn't taste as good or worth the calories to eat. BUt overall , it's always nice to have brunch here. Waiter service is great.
We were there for the Sunday brunch. Pasta station was really good but when the shrimp ran out, no refills were made. Other foods were so-so, hit or miss. Servers were nice but they were kinda slow in taking out used plates or on following up on the needs of our table. Then when it came to paying the bill, their receipts had tip amounts readily circled as if to emphasize that the minimum tip amount was 18%. I mean, is that really the minimum tip percentage amount in a buffet restaurant? I would've been happy if they were consistent in clearing our table. Other than that, the place is nice... good for families, groups, and gatherings.
Went there for Thanksgiving brunch and we had the last seating.
No one warned us of this. They started packing the food up, and clearing out tables before 5 PM.
I understand that staff want to finish up and enjoy their time but a warning would have been appreciated.
We went to Almansor Court for their Sunday Brunch...... It is amazing. The food choices and the different types of food go on forever!! Shrimp. Crab. Pasta Bar. Omelet Station. Sashimi and Sushi. Ribs. Chicken. Salmon. Crepes. Blintzes. Enchiladas. Menudo........ AND, that's only the half of it! Oh, and, Yes............ Champagne included!
Beautiful views of the golf course and patio seating if you so choose. SERVICE = OUTSTANDING. We had a wonderful time. The best.
Returned to Almansor Court on Father's Day, June 19, 2016... I am sorry to report that the second time around was a total bust... Let me tell you, 'there will definitely NOT be a third-time'... There appeared to be a large quantity of food, but the quality was poor. Let's just call the food, GRUB. As well, the table service was sparse and inadequate... I don't feel I received the caliber of food and service equal to that of the "Father's Day" inflated price of $39.95 per person... With tax and mandatory tip, it all added up to $51.20 per person. Again, it's not about the money. It's what I got in return!
The service was very good as was the ambiance. The choice of music was very strange and horrible. Weird music which included songs like The Hokey Pokey. The food could also be better : the bacon was falling apart, the tamales were dry , hard and tasteless, slimy menudo, no pancakes, not enough variety in pastries, there were many but of the same thing. Overall the food needs to be much better.
I loved the coordination, food selections, and seating and food arrangement for the amount of people that was at the Father Day brunch. The planning was commendable, and the seating and food arrangement made it conducive for a nice, pleasant, and enjoyable occasion because it didn't appear to be crowded.
It's a basic but nice brunch in a very basic place with a nice view of the golf course. Food is basic, but OK, the main food complaint would be the deserts, they were simply terrible, very cheap like from a bad market. Not as good as the rest of the offerings.
The basic buffet offerings are good to very good. Service is excellent. It just feels like a giant event hall, nothing really to speak of, in looking at the photos on the website, it was a bit surprise and not in the good way. I think the other event rooms are nicer. But at this price, I would say an excellent value and we were seated immediately with reservation. It was just a convenient halfway point to meet with family from all over SoCal.
I went here for their Mother's Day brunch and while the food was decent they way overbooked the event. The reception desk was choas with lobby crowded to the gills. They seated us very far away from the buffet tables and it appeared there was only one set of stations. The buffet lines were at least 30 people deep for every station. It was uncomfortable and chaotic and was not a very good experience. I can't fault the staff as they seemed overwhelmed and they were trying their best to keep up. It was a champagne brunch and they were good to keep the alcohol flowing. I would not come here again and I do not recommend it.
Everything was good,because of the occasion, Mother's Day, it was quite busy and noisy. The variety of food, buffet, was excellent. If you did not like something there was always many other choices. As it was Mother's Day it was a little more expensive. It was very enjoyable with our family.
Went for Mother's day. Food was poor in quality. Beef ribs dry. Menudo station was so messy! Eggs benedict...eggs dry and well done. Overall food look unappetizing and I love buffets! Usually celebrate in San Pedro at Ports of Call or at the Queen Mary but decided this year to give this place a try as it was our first time for 13 of us. The overall setup for the station needs much to be improved. It was a hazard. Went to get my first plate at the waffle station and got "Trapped" in the corner with the crowd. Literally had to push my way out from the corner. Never mind about the 2 toddlers I had with me. Had to pull them out from the crowd too. Unsafe. Also the line on the buffet was set way too close to people sitting on the sides. Best part of brunch was the service. Very nice staff who were very attentive. Eventhough we felt we overpaid for our meals based on the quality of the food, we still gave the waiters a good tip. Would not recommend that place to others. Rather pay more money and drive further for better quality and value..
