Circle Brunch - The Breakers Ratings and Reviews

You're paying to be at The Breakers....I would have expected more selections, for example a simple dish like chicken. The only chicken dish was "jerk chicken". The sliced fruit was available but it was only about the size of a dinner plate. Not ample to serve a large group of people. Obviously, with many people at the brunch it wasn't replaced quick enough. The food that should have been hot wasn't. The coffee that should have been hot wasn't. I looked for grapes at the small portion of cheese that was available, however I couldn't find any. If this brunch had been served anywhere but The Breakers, the value would have been approximately $50 per person if that. I have no problem with a 20% gratuity being included, however when all the servers have to do is refill drinks, clear the table, bring fresh silverware, and occasionally ask if there's anything else, would you care for another cocktail, the point is when those expectations aren't met I don't think it's worth 20%. I'm not sure if the servers have more tables than they can handle but they did seem scarce. Maybe it was just an off day for the food selections and the service.

What can I say to perfection . This is the Breakers the best . And they know how to do the Circle Brunch . What a selection been here before and it seems improved! Highlights include Caviar Lamb chops lobster clams crabs giant shrimp eggs benedict awesome seafood pasta and a salad bread and salami selection that would rival a premium supermarket on Dubai!! I mean this is over the top way over . You cant beat the price and those prime rib cuts ;and wow the lobster and crab legs giant!! So much and all yours, desserts wow i mean this is the ultimate dessert area period crazy . The service impeccable management there is just on top they know how to treat you and make you feel special. The only wish i have is that they have Top end Champage even if you pay a little more . What a place this is , the atmosphere the decor the staff the food and the dress up i cant get enough its just Utopia Brunch heaven. This is the Best !

This is classy elegance at its best. The food is excellent and abundant, the service superb, the atmosphere like stepping back in time to a more glamorous era. This is something you should experience - you won't forget it.

Simply elegant, lovely ambiance, amazing food. No question, a must.
The service was less than acceptable, left with empty eater glass for 20 minutes, had to ask for cup of team multiple times - slow to clear plates (and we only went up twice). But that happens, he could of been having a rough day - we all do.

We take family for brunch when visiting from out of town. Always enjoy the ambiance and food. On this occasion we had same server from last visit. We were not pleased with service at that time and this visit service did not meet expectations. We spoke with the manager who changed servers and repeatedly came by the table to make sure we were satisfied. We were very pleased by the new server and response from management.
A true measure of the 'gilded age'
Decided to come here as a special day for my Mom and her friend. Yes it is expensive but the address alone is worth the experience inside. The food... was not up to par of how much it cost for the per person price but be honest... you are paying for the ambiance and the privilege to say you had Brunch at "The Breakers". Valet is complimentary here but be sure to tip well, plenty of spots for taking pictures if you should find that you would like to do so, service was ABOVE AND BEYOND attentive and classy (automatic 20% gratuity will be added to the bill so be aware of this from the beginning) since Food & Beverage is my career my expectations for quality of food is higher than many. The buffet area itself is rather small so maneuvering about can be a challenge if your guest requires ADA access, however our server (Ana) was quick to offer to make a plate for our friend. The presentation was beautiful but I did expect more in the dessert area... again I am in the business so desserts that look like the average ones I serve at my Convention Center doesn't WOW me. Overall I would do it again for a very special occasion.

Steamship Round was tough and inedible. Most of the staff did not smile or seem remotely happy. Very crowded and noisey. Not at all worth the cost.
The room is beautiful beyond that not much to comment on in a positive way.
We have had brunch here for the past six years. It is fantastic in every way! We enjoyed everything about this brunch. The waiter and waitress could not do enough to make us feel comfortable and well taken care of. From the mimosas as a starting point to the fabulous desserts this experience is well worth the money it costs.

Great time celebrating a friends birthday. They wrote happy birthday on a plate and brought the harpist to play happy birthday for him at our table. Service was great, Anthony did a good job of having fun with us and being on point with his service.
Everything was excellent. The setting, the food and the staff. Excellent for special occasions.
The food and the drinks were very good and plentiful !! Definitely the best brunch we have ever experienced .....and we have enjoyed many nice brunches but this one is the best.
This is what a brunch should be, albeit quite pricey. (20% gratuity added in plus tax brings the cost for two to $267). Certainly excellent for special occasions and the food was great. Caviar, lobster, stone crab, sushi, prime rib carved from the bone and much much more. Desserts were outstanding and the service won't disappoint. Chris waited on us and he was perfect in every way.
Make sure to go at least once. I know that we'll be back!
What a memorable experience!
The Sunday brunch was a great experience even though quite expensive ( $105.00 per person + 20 % gratuities on top). I love the" all you can eat lobsters and seafood station. It was quite impressive. I definitely would return again on a special occasion. Service was excellent , well-timed and very friendly. We will be back!
Worth the price?
When you factor in the all-you-can-drink champagne, mimosas and bloody marys (we had at least a full bottle of champagne) and the free valet parking (normally $25), it's really not that expensive. The sushi, prime rib, and giant, sliced-to-order ham are the best items for the meal. Everything else seemed like your standard buffet-quality food - good but not great. Yes, you can gorge on as many lobster tails as you want, but I found them a little overcooked. The desserts on the other hand are all stellar - make sure you save room.
But you're really going for the ambiance and to experience how the upper 1% lives. Well worth it, unless you and your party are teetotalers :-).
All was perfect until I samples the chilled seafood on the buffet. Having 10 years experience as an employee of the Ritz Carlton, I was dismayed, to say the least, that the lobster was over cooked an rubbery. Also, the stone crab claws we're obviously cracked when cold using a lobster cracker. The shells were shattered and stick to the meat, making the claws inedible.
At this pricing, I would expect properly prepared food, especially the star items. It was a shame to see such expensive food prepared so properly and rendered inedible.
Needless to say I was truly disappointed and shocked that the Breakers would not ensure the best quality
Another wonderful day at The Breakers
Celebrated Valentine's Day in great style at the famous Circle brunch...almost everything top notch as usual. Only negative would be the skimpy looking centerpiece which is out of place in such a beautiful setting.....this is our 5th brunch and have always been disappointed with scraggly plant on the table.
Perfect for any special occasion
The variety and quality of the food is amazing. Very balanced approach to their brunch without sacrificing quality. Well worth the high cost for the brunch. Great service from your table server to the floor manager. Impeccable making a great memory for all!
Savor the Food and Admire the Flowers & Frescos
Extremely expensive but we felt it was well worth it.
Great food, great service, unlimited champagne and caviar. Even a Bloody Mary Bar. And, of course, the famous harpist. Who could ask for more? At our table we requested and the harpist played "Pachelbel's Canon" (Bach), "Time to Say Good Bye" (Bocelli), and "How to Handle a Woman" from Camelot.
Oh, and don't forget the stunning arrangements of live flowers in the Circle and in the resort proper (every where you look).
We had only two complaints:
First, that there was not a more formal dress code in place. Shorts and T-Shirts are out of place, even when the shorts and shirts are pastel. Please save the pink and the aged legs for the Breaker's golf course across the street.
Second, was that despite the expense of the Brunch we were barred from walking anywhere near the Cabana area. There is plenty of space to accommodate diners without interfering with the sun bathers. This was a serious shortcoming knowing that we paid as much for brunch, for two, as we would have to rent a cabana for part of the day. It felt strange to be treated as trespassers.
Wonderful Birthday Brunch!
Classy environment and a great spot for a gourmet brunch! Was a Birthday celebration and the harpist even came to the table to play Happy Birthday. As far as brunch goes the food was fresh, delicious and there is something for everybody.
