Circle Brunch - The Breakers Ratings and Reviews
Perfect Sunday Brunch for our family to celebrate Father's Day. Elegant seating with a view of the Atlantic Ocean and the Circle Dining Room is beautifully decorated. Everyone was able to get up and select anything they wanted to eat from the many food stations throughout the main dining area. The Breakers had anything from eggs, breakfast selections, seafood, meats, cheese & salads, desserts, and beverages of your choice. We enjoyed selecting want we wanted and returning to get "seconds" if we wanted them. The Breakers helped to make our "Fathers" and everyone in our party feel very special and welcomed.
The Brunch was fantastic. The food was very creative in the presentation and the flavor was mouthwatering. There were four in our party and we all had something different except for the lobster, we all had plenty of that. The décor was breathtaking and the wait staff was always at your service. We will be back in the near future.
This was hands down the BEST brunch I have enjoyed anywhere in the world. The food was phenomenal, the service outstanding and the value on point. I highly recommend making a Sunday Brunch reservation; you will not be disappointed!
We spent an amazing afternoon sipping mimosas, sampling the freshest shellfish and enjoying superbly prepared entrees. From the prime rib to the grilled to perfection lamb chops we were not disappointed. Our server, James was wonderful, encouraging us to take our time, relax and savor. We highly recommend The Circle!
There is a lot of sophistication and exclusivity surrounding Sunday Brunch at The Breakers which was why my friends and I were so excited to get dressed up and head there for a Sunday afternoon. When we sat at our table, minimal direction was provided in terms of how to approach the buffet, which areas we could find certain foods, how we could get drinks, etc. My friends and I tried the made to order crepes which were delicious, but the chefs making them were not the most approachable which made us feel uncomfortable asking for extra add-ons such as whipped cream or fruit on top. Regardless, do not miss the crepes! On the other side of the buffet was some seafood items that, while delicious, were noticeably picked through. The crab legs station was more shell than crab meat. Additionally, I felt the presentation of the buffet was that of one that could be found at any sort of hotel breakfast buffet. It did not feel "grand" or anywhere worth the $140 spent. While the food was good in taste, it certainly was not the best brunch that I have ever had. The bottomless mimosas was a wonderful treat as the orange juice tasted quite fresh. It took a while for our waiter to bring my friend and I the sangria to try and once we received them they weren't actually that good. Overall, I'm glad I went so I could experience it once in my life, but I would value it at a $65 brunch, certainly not $140. You're paying for the name of The Breakers, not for the quality of the food.
Es muy costoso pára la poca variedad de comida, no hay casi nada de desayuno y para los niño tampoco, el servicio es bueno pero creo que no recompensa la caridad de la comida, fruta no había ninguna solo algunas uvas adornando el plato, un lugar que frecuentó una ves al mes creo que lo voy a sustituir gracias.
No fresh fruit, except apples and oranges. Bloody mary offered with brunch was small and poor compared when purchased. Service was also poor when the silverware was not changed with the plates. Bottom line : expensive for the service and the food. The 20% service charge is the insult added to injury. There was a sense of arrogance everywhere. We shall not return again.
Only on Sundays... book well in advance!!! Worth every penny!! Service! Got there early, left late and enjoyed reading about Henry Morrison Flagler, the founder. Learned two fires had destroyed previous buildings and this was the third "Breakers". Stone Crab (when in season), otherwise King Crab is available. Cold Water Lobster Tails and Claws as well as Shrimp and Oysters. Sushi -- made to order, Mahi, Salmon, and a Plates of Smoked Fish and Caviar rounded out the Seafood Selections and there were also plenty of Beef, Chicken and Lamb Selections. There were Vegetarian and Strictly Vegan Offerings. Half a room filled with Desserts also had Sugar-Free Options. Personal favorite are the Crepes -- made to order, with all of the accoutrements! Ice Cream Sundaes with a Glazed Donut Option, included all of the add-ons. Homemade Cookies, Candies and Cakes/Pastries were all excellent, but make sure to save room for The Creme Brulee!
The food was excellent!! The Breakers is beautiful. The service was not good at all. We had to find our waiter to take our plates, to ask for drinks, and get our check. If you're going to charge 20% tip (included in the bill for a buffet)the service should be good!
The Breakers is an exceptionally beautiful facility, and the Circle is very well appointed. We celebrated a belated Valentine's Day with our infant daughter. The food is quite good and plentiful, but I have given less than perfect marks because the places where opulent brunches are available really work hard to go above and beyond. The Circle gets a lot right, but something felt not quite perfect. It's a great place to eat brunch and spend a relaxed Sunday catching up and conversing over mimosas and Bloody Marys.
We have been eating brunch at The Breakers for over 30 years and always love the experience! It is an excellent place to celebrate a very special occasion which is what we were doing Sunday February 19th. Danielle our server was pleasant, attentive, and made sure all aspects of our brunch were phenomenal! She is truly an asset to The Breakers!
Unfortunately, the dress code rules are no longer enforced and we were extremely disappointed that many jeans (some torn) shorts, and baseball hats were being worn in the dining room. Our level of expectation to fully enjoy our experience, along with the exceptional beauty and elegance of The Circle during Sunday Brunch is such that we expect dress code regulations to be adhered to by all patrons, along with being enforced by The Breakers!
An absolutely splendid place to have an absolutely splendid meal - I take my adult goddaughters here for a Sunday brunch every year when they visit - the food is spectacular -everything you could wish for from caviar through stone crab claws to fresh doughnuts and waffles by way of lamb chops and hams with cranberry jam. Plus chocolate cakes and desserts that are absolutely scrumptious. This is worth every cent and the service is always charming and unobtrusive.
