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.

Thought it was over priced for average food Paying for the Breakers not necessarily the brunch
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. Respectfully Reviewed

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.

Absolutely phenomenal! As we had a party group we were given a private room. Embience and service were fantastic. Food was fantastic. We will return!
Servers at Breakers Brunch - Herald and Nicole
I had read mixed reviews on the service at the Breakers Brunch, but we've been twice now - we've had Nicole and Herald and they were both phenomenal! The food, the setting and the service are to die for!!!!
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.
GREAT EXPERIENCE ATTHE BREAKERS' BRUNCH
Ambience alone could account for all! But servisse is oustanding. The choice of food is large and of good quality, though not much tasty. You must go there at least once in tour life!

Wonderful brunch, great ambiance, food and service. We will definitely return.
Perfect brunch for my birthday
My server was excellent! Loved the atmosphere. Food was delicious
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!
The sausages and bacon were not near the eggs and had to ask where they were. Never did find the corn deef hash.
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!
They have pretty much anything you can ask for.... Pace yourself, stick to the plan, and you will feel like you ate around the world!!
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 :-).

Our waitress was excellent. Unfortunately, I don't remember her name, however, she has worked there for 15 years.
Special Sunday Brunch
Elegant setting with great service and a selection of well prepared foods to satisfy and temp every palate.
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
This is tuly a remarkable experience and everybody should experience this at least once. First Class dining. You fell like you at Louis the 14ths Court dinner.
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.
A bit expensive but must see at least once
scenic view is wonderful, very good foods. service need to be improved must see place

Outstanding food and service. First class experience rivaled by the Biltmore in Miami or Boca Resort. Craig was very attentive and observant. Camille was a great server. Absolutely make a reservation and enjoy!
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.
My wife and myself came for brunch. The food and presentation was fantastic. Carving station (ask for a bone), sushi bar, some pasta and stir fry, crepes, dessert galore, never ending mimosas, ton of seafood. The food was delicious and prime which does qualify the cost along with mimosas. Not much for veggies or salad as offerings. High protein and high carb with the desserts. Dining/drink service was little slow but not too bad, probably staffing issue. We will definitely be back!!
Definitely an A1 Brunch...
This is Classic brunch that I highly recommend to attend at least once in your life! It could be expensive but worth it every penny! From Caviar to Stone Crabs ... And great waffles!
Truly a special event
We spent a leisurely Sunday afternoon savoring the incredible variety of food offerings in the magnificent dining setting of the Breakers Hotel. Service was above and beyond as well, and Manager Craig Harrison personally made sure our experience was exceptional. Thanks!
Wonderful, as always
The Circle Brunch at the Breakers is always wonderful and our visit last Sunday was no exception. I wanted to go while the holiday decorations were still on display and we enjoyed seeing them as much as we enjoyed the brunch. So many things to choose from...favorites are of course the champagne and caviar!
