Grand Cafe @ Omni Los Angeles Ratings and Reviews
I really enjoyed the food and service. It wasn't spectacular but it was still a very good brunch. I wish there was a wider selection as far as salads go. They only had spring mix and romaine without toppings. The seafood was great as was the prime rib. The dining area wasn't overly crowded and the servers were very attentive. Bottomless mimosas were a plus too.
This is in the setting of a beautiful hotel. If I were traveling I would stay there. It is replete with flowers and greenery and one cannot but feel a sense of serenity in the middle of a bustling city. Then came a large dinning room. It was relatively late in the lunch hour on a religious holiday. The stations were busy. The sea food was fresh. The oysters were missing. The salads were limited. The breakfast choices were few. So were the hot entrees. Japanese cuisine was just absent. The meat station was the best part of the experience. The dessert was a joke. It was a book case dotted with a scattering of mini-things. Overall it seems to be a thrown together just foe he sake of having a buffet. The quality of each food item though was excellent. There are superior buffet choices in town. My several guests' comment sums it all up, 'did they jack up the price for the holiday?'
This was my second time at this brunch and the best part is the crab claws and shrimp. The steamed crab is DELICIOUS! However, for the cost I think they should have a few more hot item and salad choices and more carve station choices. The multiple conversation noise level should also be drawn out with some nice jazz music. It doesn't have to have a live band but some soft music would be nice. Other than that, I'd recommend and will be back.
Was very impressed the experience. The venu was great and in a great location for downtown LA. Sunday brunch is worth the price. At first I thought it was a little on the pricey side but for unlimited mimosas and the quality of food and service, I certainly got my money's worth. I'd recommend this place as a great vibe for Sunday brunch.
I would recommend the brunch cafe to more friends if the cost was still $40 per person. I was shocked when I received my bill to see it raised to 50 when; 1. Nothing special changed with the food, it was still very basic 2. The workers didn't get a raise. I don't see the reason to raise the price when nothing has changed. Stop being greedy.
Placed Christmas Day brunch for party of 8 via open table about month ago. No where on the reservation indicated if reserve thru Open Table, only patio seating reserved. Inside seating are solely for non-Open Table reservation. So when we arrived yesterday, we were not seated because two of our parties had a incident with their Uber driver that cause them late for almost 30mins. However during the time I made sure the host knew we were there but two persons late. She assured me that no problem and when they all arrived we will be seat. She was right about seating us right away when all parties arrived. But she took us right through the inside seating to the outside patio and we were stunned. Her reason was we had reserved "Patio" because of Open Table. That is just absurd! Yesterday's chilled weather were simply not fit for our two elderly. Finally one of the elderly insisted she can't bear the chilled and the walking distance (with steps) to the buffet. Although the host came through at the end and seat us inside, the whole ordeal was just lame.
The restaurant had 400+ reservations for Christamas day brunch. In spite of
this industrial size crowd the kitchen did an amazing job of turning out high
quality, delicious food. From crab claws to prime rib, and wonderful deserts,
nothing was overlooked. Three kinds of butter, pretty amazing! The wait staff
did a supuralative job and did it with warm cordiality, a special thanks for
coming to serve us on a Holiday, thank you! Expensive but worth it!
The only problem we had was they sat us by a door that kept being opened through out our dining. It was very cold and windy. A Manager (someone in a suit) would come by and prop the door open to allow the complete party to go by and would leave it open. We had to get up twice to shut the door. We finally did tell him and he did shut it after the party had gone through.
My son recommended the Grand he had been for a couple of occasions and was very pleased! My friend's and I were looking for something to do on Christmas Eve and decided to give The Grand a try we were extremely pleased! The staff was very friendly and efficient! The food was suburb! We will definitely be back!
Really enjoyed the variety of dishes at Sunday brunch. Wish the ambiance matched the food. Although I made reservations a few days ahead we were seated near the checkin counter. We were right in the path of patrons coming and going. We literally moved our table to try and get out of the path. The noise level was almost unbearable.
The food was mediocre and the selection wasn't as vast as, say, a las vegas buffet but for LA, and for bottles mimosas, the brunch here on Sundays had enough seafood to make the price not too much of a rip off. If you can eat your share in seafood, desserts, and bottomless mimosas (champagne too but once you choose your drink of choice you can't change), then it may be worth $50 out the door (incl tax and tip).
Make sure to make a reservation for Sunday brunch or else you're looking at an hour and a half wait time! We got lucky and got seated at a window table. Nice, meaty crab claws, just wish they could have been heated up! Really pretty dessert area, delicious bottomless coffee and mimosas, great service.
