Circle Brunch - The Breakers Ratings and Reviews

I was very pleased that the brunch selections have been upgraded to what they used to be several years ago! I had stopped going to brunch here (as well as several friends of mine) because the price had been raised and the selections were dismal. I have had the pleasure to contact my friends and let them know that the quality we expected was back!

Well worth it - as long as you're not a teetotaler. I continue to believe it's a great value - unlimited champagne, mimosas and Bloody Mary's, not to mention caviar, lobster tails, king crab legs, etc. Highly recommend it for special events.

Circle Brunch is absolutely AMAZING! Be prepared to PACE YOURSELF - We were there for over 2 hours and I still didn't taste everything! FRESH, Delicious, Exciting, Chef Action Stations (Carving, Waffles, Omelets, Crepes), Crab Legs, LOBSTER TAILS, Sushi, Caviar, Lamb Chops...... OMG it was just perfect! Forget about the DESSERT BAR! Holy Yumness! You will NEVER be able to taste everything! Not to mention the complimentary Mimosas and Bloody Marys!
Service is always amazing here too. Not to mention the Harpist who has been there for many, many years - he is brilliant!
Definitely worth the drive up from Fort Lauderdale a couple times a year!

While I still consider brunch at the Breakers a must do experience, it is much more for the atmosphere and the gorgeous circle dining room than for the food or value. It is still wonderful for a special occasion because of the grand experience, the food however while very good and plentiful, was not exceptional or memorable except for maybe some of the desserts. At over $100 per person I felt the food could have been a bit more creative and delectable rather than somewhat predictable brunch fare, but if you go, go knowing that you are there more for the total experience than for just the food.

The ambience and the food are spectacular. Endless variety and amounts of delicious food. Unlimited mimosas and bloody marys. The live harpist was an added bonus- even came to out table!. Better be a really special occasion or you better have some gift cards with the price per person!

The Circle is a fantastic place, and its Sunday brunch is a wonderful experience. The service is always very good, and the variety of fine dishes is spectacular. There is a wonderful Bloody Mary bar where one can select its ingredients, and all the bloody maries are included in the overall price, as well as the mimosas. Particularly recommendable: caviar table, lobster and shrimps, prime-rib, lamb ribs, and doughnut waffles. The burnch is accompanied by a nice harp, and the scenery is very special.

What you pay for is the ambiance. The food is okay but not worth $105 per person. There is nothing like being at the incredible Breakers hotel so I am glad we went to be able to see the historic building. Another nice feature was the live harpist. A 20% tip is automatically added to the bill. I hope it is divided up among all the servers at the buffet as all our waiter did was bring drinks, water and coffee. Yes, it was a unique experience but would we go again? No.

wow!!! Fantastic....everyone should do this at least once in their lifetime!!! Food Excellent, service superb!! We enjoyed every minute of this fabulous brunch!!! Treat your self....you won't regret it for a minute!!! and yes I would love to go back someday!!!!

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.

I went to celebrate my birthday there with family & friends, & everything was outstanding. A little bit over-priced, I would say. They're missing oysters, too. Live jazz band would also be nice. Apart from this, I was very happy to spend my special day there!

What a joy to enjoy the Circle Brunch at the Breakers again! I absolutely recommend it highly to anyone looking for a GREAT food, service and ambiance experience. Everyone is a delight to deal with and really convey the service attitude. Special shout out to Craig Harrison who made the experience seamless from the first contact. Thank you all for making my birthday an unforgettable experience.

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.
