Grand Cafe @ Omni Los Angeles Ratings and Reviews
I really wanted to love the Grand Cafe! ...
I really wanted to love the Grand Cafe! I really did however the food was alright. They really need to offer a variety of dishes. The champagne was good and the service was great considering the restaurant gets really busy. The crowd is quite trendy and diverse which is nice. I highly recommend staying far away from the valet. Take an Uber or park away and walk up. So, the restaurant will validate your parking ticket for 2 hours. After the 2 hours you have to pay the full price. The problem is that the valet service is disorganized. We would have been waiting for over an hour if we didn't run out to the street to get our car from the valet driver. There were cars blocking the drive way waiting to check their cars in. Lucky we only waited 45 mins.

I would not recommend this place simply for the simple fact that they took an unauthorized charge from my card of $140. And getting them to return it has been a big nightmare and a lot of back and forth. Other than that they would have gotten a better review.

I enjoy eating at the grand cafe. The bottomless mimosas and the prime rib are delicious. However, the price is normally 36$ per person for brunch. I was very disappointed to learn that brunch for Father's Day dramatically increased to 50$ per person. That decreased the overall value of the restaurant from a consumer stand point.

Nice location with valet parking, food never disappoints. Chilean sea bass is beyond compare. our family loves celebrating special occasions here and our young grand kids fit right in. Omelet bar is super good and service is fast. We'll definitely be returning for more great food!

I'm in hospitality and the service that we received (for the Father's Day Brunch Buffet) was tops from the valet to the desk to the server. Very busy and the noise level was a bit high, but understandably for a special occasion. Still nice ambience, good view, good food (brunch menu), good service, good location... We really had a great time from parking to leaving. Thank you Omni.

This was my second visit here for the weekend brunch. Made reservations to my dad out for fathers day and it was outstanding ! The brunch theme was a backyard BBQ, which was interesting. The ambience feel slightly high end, but with an affordable touch. I constantly recommend this spot to my coworkers and friends for the weekend brunch. I cant wait to have brunch here again! Thank you!!

Went for Father's Day Saturday Brunch. It was fabulous! Omelette and carving station, waffles (nice and moist), crab legs and large shrimp with fresh cocktail sauce and melted butter. Miso soup and dim sum. The desserts were fabulous, in smaller portions so you can enjoy several without wasting food. The staff was great and kept the mimosas coming. Will be going back!

Valet - $7. All you can eat surf-n-turf brunch buffet with bottomless mimosas - $36 Feeling the entirety of your stomach pushed to it's outer limits = Priceless.
Perfect for lunch before matinee at Disney Hall
The Grand Cafe is our first choice for lunch before a matinee at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The location is only 2 blocks away, and it quite an elegant setting in the Omni Hotel. It was very noisy inside when we arrived so we asked to change our table to be outside, which was very pleasant. The menu on Saturdays is now primarily brunch, and was limited in typical lunch items. However, we both had items that we enjoyed -- buttermilk pancakes and a French dip sandwich. Both were flavorful and well presented. Service was attentive and timely. We would definitely come here again.

This was my first time at this restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised at this hidden gem. I will be returning. Thank You!
Great downtown dining spot
Second time dining here for brunch prior to the theater. We ordered off the ala carte menu. The frittata was great as was the omelet. I drink a lot of coffee and I judge service by whether my cup ever hits bottom - but they kept it filled. Great ambiance with open windows and a great view. Would definitely recommend.

We were there to celebrate Mother's Day and will be back every year!
Brunch hot spot
This place is great for brunch with mimosas! Although it was a little pricey, the mimosas would be filled every time we took a sip! And the buffet has loads of choices! Food was good, apart from the salmon (I totally understand it's dry because it's sitting out trying to keep warm). Would recommend this place for groups and families. It was a bit loud for datetime dining
Great Service, Great Food, Great Place
Service is great, host have us seated as soon as we walked in. The server is very nice, comes around a few time to make sure we don't need anything. People working always give me a smile and friendly attitude, really made me want to go for second visit. Food is awesome, especially if you love sea food! the crab feet are well prepared and ready for eat, very fresh. Dessert Section are very cute, and for people like sweet or not can both enjoy. Full of pastries choices, I cannot resisted. Almost had 5 different kinds of bread. Asian station, I think they can still improve with a lot of difference choices. For Brunch, fresh omelet and fresh waffle made my weekend. We had a window seat, which I can see the LA Contemporary Art Installation. Outside is would be great if the weather is nice. We even walked around outside after the brunch. Very close to Disney Concert Hall and Broad Museum, made this place a even greater location.
Great buffet brunch
We enjoyed the buffet variety for brunch. We did think it would be a little fancier but we're still pleased.
Family Girly Brunch
Really enjoyed the weekend brunch at the Grand Cafe. Lovely setting and attentive, helpful staff. Roast Beef and potatoes could've been warmer but good selection overall
The service and food was excellent, but a little pricey for what you get. Two adults for breakfast was $60.
love brunch @ omni!
we had brunch here on our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it! the hotel staff is lovely and very obliging.
Bad Service and No flavor
We were a small group of people and every single time we had to ask for more soda, water, or mimosas. We had to constantly be asking for a fork because they would take it with the plate. The times that they passed we felt ignored. The variety of food was good, but not worth the price. The seafood had no flavor and for $36 + tax I expect some flavor on my food. No flavor on the crabs, fish or shrimp. For the Asian section there were dumplings and gyoza that tasted bland like dough and it was a disappointment. The ambiance couldn't solve the food, service and value, so overall my rating is poor.
Great brunch. Will definitely come back!
Great brunch. Will definitely come back!
Great for groups!
This is such a great spot to catch up with friends. The food is delicious and there is a lot to choose from... It's not too crowded or loud so you can easily engage in conversation with your group. The staff was friendly. The bottomless mimosas was a big PLUS too.
Saturday Brunch HIT!!
My boyfriend and I came here for brunch on a saturday. What a great time we had! The view of the MOCA and the people visiting was enjoyable to watch as we sipped our bottomless mimosas and dined on snow crab and shrimp. Yummy carving station and omelettes. Delightful bite-sized desserts. We enjoyed the brunch and the energy in the place was great! People celebrating and enjoying family and friends. Great food and the mimosas were flowing. I would definitely recommend for couples, or a group of friends!

My husband and I enjoyed Easter Brunch at the Omni Grand Cafe and were quite pleased with, not only, the food options, but the ambience and service as well. You can imagine Easter brunch being over-crowded, limited choices, etc, but the Grand Cafe had ample room and no shortage of cuisine. They even had the Easter Bunny greeting and taking pictures with the guests. We'd like to go for dinner at some point to compare, but it was wonderful and the perfect choice for our Easter brunch outing.

Buffets can be crowded and food runs out sometimes, but this was not the case at the Grand Cafe. Spacing of the tables from the food was good and food was re-stocked often which was nice. Great selections. I just miss the oysters, maybe they weren't in season.
Grand Cafe @Omni
We were there for Sunday Brunch, after 40 minutes, without asking, the waiter gave us the check and remove our glasses from our table. We have a minor, I indicated my son is 12 years old at check in, but he was being charge for adult. (he is a picky eater, he only eat fresh foods & one slice of prime rib) They seemed want to have our table in a rush, the other tables around us were eating there longer than us, We were the only Asians there, I hope that was not the reason, we were being over charged & rude services at the end. My niece was the one who paid for my birthday, I found out we were over charged after.
Books and Bubbles!
My book club centers around unlimited mimosa brunches (don't judge us!) and saw Grand Cafe on a list online. I've eaten lunch here as I work across the street so I figured the food would be good. We had an 11a reservation and it wasn't too crowded (the crowds started after noon). We were seated promptly and all were impressed with the shrimp and crab station we passed on the way to our table. I don't typically eat shrimp at buffets (lack of cleaning) but this shrimp looked amazing...too all of us! The food was great, from the breakfast items, to the prime rib, to the partially shelled crab claws...and let's not forget the mimosa that kept on coming! We weren't even half way through our book discussion before we decided to come back for next month's meeting! I've been staying at various Omni's for the past couple of years and their customer service is top notch from the hotel to the restaurant!
Everyone but one of the managers was outstanding
Upon arrival to our reservation, my girlfriend and I were not acknowledged by one of the managers in the front. We stood there for a while until I addressed him and he was not very friendly for some reason. We came for mimosas and breakfast and he told us we weren't allowed to have mimosas before 11. It was already 10 so I said umm that's fine sir we can wait.) (Although I didn't understand why we weren't "allowed".) He then took us to our seating which was the absolute first table when you come in. I prefer more secluded areas and it was a beautiful day so I asked if we could sit at the patio/outdoor area... He became a bit frustrated and seemed adamant in the fact that there was no room for us there because of a soon to come large party. That's understandable, so then I asked what seemed to be the most insulting question he must have heard all his life. "Can we sit at the window there?" There was a cute window facing the Moca, perfect for me and my girlfriend to sit and talk but this manager almost fainted!?! He looked as if I asked could we sit on his face, or as if I Said something even more utterly disgusting. He reluctantly sat us at the window and my beautiful girlfriend and myself sat at the table feeling terrible about our experience thus far... We had no idea why we were being treated in such a manner but had several hypothesis we didn't want to assume. After he went away, we were highly uncomfortable until Augustus showed up. He took our orders and said we could have mimosas before 11 no problem. He Even made special ones with pineapple because my lady can't have Oj. Another lady, I want to say here name was Sandra? Kept our cups filled and from then on we had a wonderful time away from our first encounter. But we will never forget how he made us feel when we arrived. Wonderful people all around except for that erratic, frenzied manager.

It was fairly ok. Price is too expensive.
The Sunday Brunch was chock full of delectable options, I found the selection to be very vast which catered to even the most distinctive palate, I questioned the Champagne and juice used for the Mimosas; the Champagne was a bit too bitter for my taste, and the juice tasted more like a mixed fruit instead of the traditional orange juice, but the food made up for the unpleasant Mimosa. I would recommend the Grand Cafe to all of my family and friends, and whenever I'm on the west coast, I would definitely brunch with you guys again.
Buffet was great. Small selection, but great quality. Bottomless mimosa-- by the pitcher. Waiters were attentive. Overall, would come again for Sunday brunch.

The downtown LA Brunch that you must not miss - flowing champagne/mimosas, jumbo shrimp, crab legs, carving station, roasted vegetables, soups, pastries, breakfast items including Eggs Benedict and omelet station, desserts and the usual coffee/tea/OJ. GREAT FRIENDLY SERVICE!!!
Omni Hotel Brunch
We do brunch about twice a month. Read a review on Open Table and the reviews stated they had a seafood station. I was sold. Loved, loved the seafood station. Oysters, crab claws, shrimp, crab legs, smoked salmon and flowing mimosas, what's not to like. Recommending to friends and family and we'll be back.
Great food and service. Excellent spot for special occasions and large groups. Reasonable parking w/validation. Beautiful decor
Hard to find
This restaurant is on the 3rd floor. It took me forever to find this place, all it has in the directions is the street address but this is a large hotel. The seating was OK but I am not sure what the people were talking about with regards to a view. The only thing of a view is a sculpture and some ponds, not bad but certainly not worth going there for. The buffet was excellent though!
Brunch -- Bottomless Mimosas
They offer a good variety of breakfast foods. Omelette Station, breakfast potatoes, few breakfast meats, cereal, fruit, pastries. From 11am-2pm they have crab legs, oysters, and other seafood items.
