Circle Brunch - The Breakers Ratings and Reviews
We were very fortunately seated by the window side so we could capture the look of the entire elegant dining room with natural daylight. A lady called Nikki was our server. I felt her service was sincere (not condescending nor stuffy like at some top class hotels), professional, and efficient. She topped up the water and mimosas without ever being asked. The glasses always kept full. She offered a refill of my hot choc even though I only drank it halfway and left it to sit, as she figured it could have gone cold. Plates were always cleared quickly and not before we had really finished. There was a harp guy playing live music too.
There was a lot of food, sufficient and not over-the-top. In the seafood section, the snow crab's legs were really sweet and good), and there were prawns, lobster tails, mini crayfish, as well as oysters. The small sushi rolls were well-rolled (not with ingredients falling out) and of decent standard although top-rate. The coconut curry chicken dish was very tasty (with correct Indian spices and not watered down or sweetened for American tastes), as was the mini sweet and sour fish and curried prawns plates. Even the roast prime beef and leg of ham were of good standard.
On to the desserts, spanning all 4 sides of the counter, plus a crepe/waffle station. The desserts were simple; nothing overly fancy nor unexpected, but with a wide array, placed neatly and hence in a more appetizing fashion.
For about USD 140 (free flow mimosas, sangrias, bloody marys) including 20% service charge, this is a decent deal for an occasion, really. Quality food and quality service.
Improvement in lobster claws being presented without the cracked shell. Cavier station was hard to locate. Desserts need more descriptive labeling. Lamb chops were medium rare and when I returned to station to request well done ones there was no chef present. My table request was fulfilled perfectly. Server was pleasant but not as attentive as others observed at other tables. and had limited knowledge of liquors, luckily Mauricio assisted and was more than helpful.
Definitely a favorite treat for brunch.
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.
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.
